What if we all chimed in about which post garnered the most responses on our blogs, and why we think it worked?
The first part is easy enough. It’s based on the number of responses. I don’t care how many you got, as this is not a competition. Let’s skip giveaways as a category.
Next tell us why it worked. Was it the photograph? A banana bread recipe (I’ve heard that desserts are no-fail)? A personal crisis? Your baby announcement (seriously, Smitten Kitchen readers went berserk )?
I’ll go first. My biggest response was for my post on the value of “Looks Delicious” as a comment. It worked because almost everyone has left that kind of comment on a blog, and it’s a standard comment to receive if you have a food blog. Additionally, I questioned whether that kind of comment had value, which got people talking, and about whether, as food bloggers, we have the responsibility to do better.
Your turn now. Maybe together, we can figure out what makes a darned good food blog post. So please say which one worked and why it was popular. Add a link to the post so we can all go see.
