I’ve taken a new spin on blogging – specifically around using Instagram because writing a real soup post takes quite a bit of time and resources on my part, but instagram is just so fun, fun, fun and what do you know – it’s instant!
Instagram name: TheChineseSoupLady
It’s completely experimental and it’s basically me and my handy iPhone snapping photos of anything in liquid state – soups taking priority. I’m always on the hunt for new and tasty soups, so this opens up a completely new channel for me to explore and for new readers to explore my soups.
Happy soup day and all the best in 2015! Thank you to all my readers for your continued support – especially the immediate feedback when my site is down with a virus or something is wonky with it!
My new found social media platform is just so much fun, fun, fun!
I just want to happily broadcast that TheChineseSoupLady.com is now enjoying (for the first time) over 100K (yes, one hundred thousand) pageviews per month with October 2011 being the first month and November steadily on target to go beyond that!
I’ve taken a screen shot of the statpress plugin for my blog from my admin panel and was thrilled to see the stats today while posting a new soup. I don’t have that much time these days to religiously follow the statistics, but it is always a pleasant surprise to see the statistics improving steadily (in every way). I am still crunching away at trying to get my cookbook published and am happy to update that I have signed with an agent in the US. We will shortly be reaching out to publishers to cast my net and see where the voyage will take me.
In all honesty, I didn’t realize that with 1 single passion, some free time, and a load of perseverance, that I would be where I am today. Thank you to my supporters and readers. Thank you to my family for helping me realize my dreams (in this arena) and this is the start of a great journey yet to be completed!! WAHOO!!
