“You need some oomph, some pizzazz..something!” For a second I thought one of the closest friends I have in London was telling me I’d lost my IT factor! My brain fast tracked to retail therapy, buying low cut dresses with short hemlines and potentially trying out some sort of surgery to correct my lack of oomph!
“Pay attention woman! You’re recipes make even me think I can cook, but…it lacks something! Just a picture of Drake isn’t enough.” That statement definitely brought me back to the ground! She was talking about Cooksahoy! So, with a sigh of relief I put the terrifying thought of surgery and short hemlines behind me.
But it did get me thinking! Now that I’m slowly figuring out the technical side of having a blog (I learn everyday what NOT to do, how to fix something that just doesn’t seem right/to work), though I highly doubt I’m going to learn the fine art of coding, she was right – How do I get eyeballs? Even more important Is Cooksahoy even worth eyeballs?
I put the question to my husband, far more savvy in the art of sales – Should I be a Gordon Ramsey style terrifying blogger? Or maybe ooze some Nigella Lawson style buttery corn? Or a home spun style of the food mogul Jamie Oliver? – He shot all of them down with just a look! “Honey, its not like you studied for 10 years at Cordon Bleu. Just play with it, be yourself and see what works!”
So that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m going to find my oomph & pizzazz slowly, but surely. Heck it took Twitter 6 years to come up with a business model didn’t it?
