Things have to change with my blog. My health has been crap and I thought doing product reviews this summer would be a great way to add content without too much work. I was so wrong.
See, you never know when things are going to arrive and a lot of the time, they arrive in a bit of an avalanche. If they are appliances, they also take a lot of time product testing and I like to be as thorough as possible.
I work really hard on my product reviews and try and be professional as I can. This summer, however, I let companies down. A lot. I could not keep up with emails, with the pace and spent a lot of the summer unconscious and exhausted in bed feeling like a failure and a loser.
This kitchen chaos is the result of filming three videos in one day which totally ended up kicking my ass. It is just too much.
Now I am not saying I will never do product reviews. What I am saying is right now if I do any, it will be because I picked something up and wanted to share my opinion with you. Also, the company I enjoyed testing for the most, President’s Choice, just sort of dropped me. I’m sure it wasn’t personal, we adore each other, but something’s going on there and I haven’t heard from them since December.
I think I need my blog to be more personal again. More about storytelling and less about wooden spoon ratings. I am going old school. I tried to compete with the mega food blogs out there but my health just won’t let me be the foodie rockstar I want to be. And that’s OK. What makes me happy is playing with food. Once it becomes a job, I get really sick. And I have had enough of that.
