I presented my muffin post idea to a group of 30 women, and was pleasantly surprised when they appeared to ‘get’ my idea.
Some interesting questions arose:
“If you don’t follow this recipe for creating blog posts, what happens?’
“Well, you get a misshapen, tasteless, half-baked mound in the middle of your baking tray, in other words, not a good post.”
“Lots of people might not know how to create posts properly, so are there lots of badly baked muffins around?”
“Of course, take a look at other blogs and see if they have all the ingredients in them. You’ll soon know which ones are baked perfectly.”
One woman came up to me afterwards and revealed she had started a blog, and now realised her posts were lacking in flavour. “Thanks for letting me know what tags are for, can I go back and put them in?”
“Yes, blog posts can be rebaked with the correct flavourings (tags or keywords), unlike real muffins, which cannot be ‘undone’. That’s the beauty of blogging, and not baking. I suppose you could crumble up your bland muffins and add flavourings to it for another dish, such as a rewritten post.”
What thoughts or questions do you have that arise from my muffin blog post?
