So do you have a blog about caking? - Page 3

post #31 of 53
Awwww...thank you guys for the nice comments! I'm just like you all-I am a SAHM who took 1 Wilton course and then learned everything else from books, TV, and CC. Last night, I was looking through all my photos and couldn't believe how far I had come in the 2 years I have done this. Really. It was pretty neat to see. icon_biggrin.gif

I have a blog that is really a marketing tool for my business, but I do just enjoy the creative outlet of it and the interactiveness with my followers/customers. I have no idea how to increase traffic, though. It is in my siggy.

I started a blog in June of 2008 and have not posted anything on it. I have been stuck as to what I want to post. I started with one idea in mind and then I changed it. I am hoping to sart posting before my 1st anniversary.

I also don't belong to facebook, my space or any of the other social networking sites. I don't twitter or know what twitter is exctly.

I have high hopes for me. I have all these privacy issues and being on CC is big for me.

I have had a blog for a year now and I have over 35,000 hits. I find that most of mine are coming from searchs in google, etc. there are alot from here as well. I think it is important to put in key words (i.e. guitar hero, communion cake, etc.) or at least I think that is what makes a difference. I am certainly no the expert at it but this is what I have experienced. It also helps to leave comments on others people sites. Blogs are great since you can talk about what your making and how you made it etc. I feel it is more personal. Good luck and I am glad you started this topic, I have found blogs that I love from here!

I have a blog too. For the most part it's about what we're doing in the cake shop and also about the classes we teach.

I just finished course 1, and have already learned some new stuff on here and other websites. I was even wondering if I should bother taking the second course.
After looking at your cakes, I think I might wait a few months to see if I think I need it.
The cake I made last night was truely a work of art...and then I woke up.

I've been 'cookie decorating' for years, but my blog is fairly new...
www.sweetopia.net

It's a place where I want to share my cookie/cupcake projects and eventually my cakes. I'm still learning how to do cakes and am taking courses. My other major 'hobbies' are on there too... home decor, fashion, health and wellness... I wanted a place to write about everything that interests me.

Can't wait to check out all your blogs too... I wish I could be on the computer all day!

Okay here's a really stupid question: what exactly is a "blog"?? And how is it different from a regular website?
To find "THE RECIPE LINKS ARE HERE" thread, click on "Forums", then "Recipes" and it's the first sticky. Latest updates are on (the bottom of) page 10 here: http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopic-625803-135.html

I started a blog mainly to share with my out of town sister how I do different cakes. She is a novice and would email a list of questions each time I sent a pic. So I started trying to remember to take pics of the process for her.

I haven't really tried to promote traffic, but I did read that the more you comment on other blogs, the more traffic you tend to get to yours.

I have a blog too. It is mostly about my kids and family. I put my cakes on it when I do one, but it is not devoted solely to cake decorating. I usually post pictures of the cakes and don't even really discuss how they were made.
