The taste of defeat

Or failure may be the theme of the blog entry? In the end, praise to what is ideal, do best and (at least in the eyes of people who do not know the details) deserves to be called a success. This time it is not. It is also not so, that from today I will write about their failures on the blog. Culinary blog in addition.

We have the beginning of the year, so the time is conducive to all manner of stocktakings and own reflections.

Basic reflection concerns the blogging ... many times over wondering. Once I worried, I have no comments ... another time, that I have 🙂 . Someone accuse me of cheating rules, other times I found a copy of my online ... 🙁

Whenever I saw the ongoing debate concerning the "blogosphere" I always had the impression, it's not my world ... Of course I know many of your readers (many of you), we like to, the part of you can tell are friends (although the word has always meant something to me more and was reserved for the 'real world'). Luckily, not strayed hejterzy me and I realize their passions created the.

The process of creation has not always been easy ... pastries do not always cooperate, occur Lipná regulations or these super successful it was necessary to defend against an accelerated consumption, to prepare a photo session. Photography also was not my forte ... discussions with her husband, combinations, designs.

And so the months passed very slowly, Entries were created, rules, came new people ...

I happened to go to a party with friends to get to know new people, which, as the learned, that I was recommended by a nice blog ... You know ... babuzka-zuzka ... 🙂 It was extremely nice ... Just like the comments, that someone started to bake 'by me' and makes me believe in myself. I believed (I wanted to believe), that what I do is important and necessary. And gave me this fun.

Every now and then (mainly due to the friends) appeared about making ... Is it for cakes, whether this "blog" ... "You know - the great pastries, the audience, so many fans”. My husband always told me - if it is to be a hobby that does not think about making money ... How many times spit on the chin when I agreed to bake a cake, make the cake a friend. From yesterday to today, I liked the night ... (and still like!) spontaneously give to neighbors / friends / friends cake, pierniczkami or even cake. First to invent, then make and then donate - just so ... out of sympathy, to taste. 🙂 No coercion, term, blast.

How to make (the blog) I'm not shaking, but the thought of hidden potential was. In the end, many people here looks ... For example, a pair of numbers: close 800 people subscribe to notifications of new entries, daily blog is ok. 4000 Input (holidays there were days, inputs that were more than 20 grand. a day, and it's probably just because, that fell hosting and more I 'did not fit'). Unique users (anything that is not meant) month is thick tens of thousands (in holiday periods row 130tys). Facebook reports the number of 8tys. fans (whoever these people were not - clicked 'like it' in the profile fejsbukowy blog). With no reference is difficult to assess whether these numbers are big or small. Does this mean SOMETHING is quite NIC?

I just go to the core of my recent thoughts. Because all indications are, that does not mean nothing ... absolutely nothing.
It's just there so much traffic .... Internet traffic ... On the streets of a busy happens ...

I will share with you the results of the 'action' calendar '.
From time to time I manage to put aside some money ... We then (decisions because it is common, Family) remember, that we are not alone in this world, that simply saying - it is worth helping. I thought (thought), we can do more ... instead of the usual run charity donations. Possible, that marketers of us are weak or naive .... The idea simple as building cepa, and in our logic as transparent and easy. Invent a gadget, something useful - here fell on the calendar (maybe it was a stupid idea?) – and readers support a good cause in exchange for an award. I can not judge whether $ 20 was too much, or indeed the choice calendar was so much sucks (he had no names, there were no rules, was only a4, etc.). Or maybe target action - support of the Association TOTAL I made cooperation blow the heart ... I do not know ... I just do not know ... maybe lacked heartfelt images of tiny children massacred after an accident or tethered to a drip marketing failed ... Maybe ... All in all it is probably even I do not want to settle, because it will not change anything. With five ordered calendars managed to distribute about. 80Of which ... by blog 30 (Very, and thank you very much this, who are engaged! Thanks to you know, that not all help is only a click 'like it’ to calm his own conscience). The bitter taste of DEFEAT. The more, that income did not exceed the cost of printing - so conclusion is the same - it did not make any sense. It did not help ... the world has changed ...

It changed me for that. I know, I like to bake. As the mood I'll have to insert entries. This is my blog and my hobby. Not all my baking / recipe has hit the Internet. For me it will be a pleasure and fun. Despite the thousands of visitors to your blog do not consider, I'm for you whether you are for me. I know it's what I know - and it does not change the picture of the situation (You are not guilty of this situation!). But I see no reason for someone I compute the dimensions of the plaque that complement its basic deficiencies in reading comprehension (regulations). At this I do not care.
Recently someone joked on FB, that, as, after being a blogger undertakes ...
Hmm ... in that case I'm not a blogger. I do not feel obliged.

Sweet Babeczko, I'm with you until the third time, and I found by chance from a blog caketime. Yet nothing but baked stay here, I have excellent rules. I do not have FB, or a blog so I can return the favor your side. I completely understand your “pique”, but it's only you stronger. Someone wrote the following about the positives and they need to think. Even if you have only a few respondents, This should be something you love to do. Virtual “life” What is a blog, can hurt more than in the real world, but the lesson is priceless. People will always remain just ludzimi and are the most cruel, when they do not see.… read more »

I came across your blog only today (that it will stay this is the second case). I'm glad, that there are people like you! Do not give up! I hope, that each failure teaches us something new, which will cover in our heads for life. We just have to utilize this knowledge well! Head up, greet Loreta.

Very valuable entry. Publication of the rules is to give pleasure. She sometimes when I cook something that I immediately know, I will not do the dishes photos, because the household will die of hunger and I will not have the possibility of publishing rule. It is difficult to. In the rush and nerves is not always time, to think more about the blog. Regards!

Dear Asia, keep writing, do not worry about the taste of whatever the – sweet, salty or bitter… CI will always be wiser in my life who did not hold spoons in hand and swallowed all brains. I am sooooo glad that I found on your website – Today I bake for the first time on grain yeast bread… I will describe how to come out – how come it can not describe. I did have a cake with chocolate cream by your PYYYCHAAA! So far I (I immodestly say here ) a specialist in cakes with whipped cream, but the decorations I make myself with marshmalows melted for known reasons… read more »

Kochana Asiu, Very sad what you write. I like to look at your website and I hope, with August not give:) As for the shares is unfortunately so is it with our society. I do not agree with the entry, with people in Poland do not have the money. I know from experience, with you until May at least give the largest number. Since it is difficult to bring out the rich while the zloty, not unless they have something to do with it, or they want to show yourself to other rich friends. Once I also organized a birthday party and instead of presents I collected on vacation for 2 poor girls. I do not embarrass anyone done box full money. It turned… read more »

I felt complicit, because I used it a few times already with the laws of your blog (All in all it's probably a dozen, because after some of the provisions I reached several times) and if only I had more time, This zaglądałabym here willingly much, much more. Well, unfortunately, I missed the action 🙁 I don't want to justify myself, that's why, that I did not receive an email with the information that I had no time. It is true, that if we use here for free with your work, and often still ask a lot of additional questions, which we selflessly answer, we also need to show a bit more commitment. I'm ashamed 🙁 It gave me… read more »

I, that all this speaks in favor of summarizing the year… read more »

Not so sad! The first action is rarely a complete success. Do not despair, only analyze: distribution as calendars, December deadline too late (are already in stores from September). Too little information – for example, I did not get any notification, even though I read your blog. I write on, I look forward to further entries (my, readers…). Regards.
PS. Naturally, willing to buy from you calendar – yet only is January! Yours sincerely, Jolka

It is terribly sad that something so practical (I think everyone is buying calendar) and at an affordable price (20 zł per calendar with nice pictures of the normal price) and most importantly, designed to contribute to the association, which helps sick people, sold so poorly. After buying this calendar does not even require leaving home… I do not understand. I'll ask around your friends can still find someone who will buy it you wonder. My now adorns the wall. Dziękuję że chciało się Pani chcieć 🙂
Best regards

p.s. Mr. postman just brought a prize for a contest Christmas. Wonderful. Thank you 🙂

…I do not know where to start… This entry is so annoying and sad, I ran the words – on the one hand because, that I knew nothing about the action, Unfortunately, because of lack of time, my blog entry limited to the use of the provisions, on the other, I feel, that a piece of hot people, which she wrote with such passion for us, visitors, waned… However, this is all I want to thank you for your patience, for the heat, fabulous pastries, which is always full and inviting described could “copy” 🙂 Defeat especially hurts, but always teaches us something, but can not be subjected to, because unfortunately the world… read more »

Asiu… I normally speechless, three times read… 80 pieces? I do not, I dropped everything, and I was convinced, that will spread like hot buns. I'm terribly sorry, until I burst out crying. And this is sad, that benefit from the work of others want all, but to give something back to the few. Terribly sad, because 20 zł it is not a property (This one cake, which simply can not bake). And in such situations, one wonders what it is 100 UU thousand a month… I admire you, that in general you had the courage for it, to organize such an action, invest in it not only measures, but… read more »

What is true! How much agree with you! I can not even express it! The idea of ​​action was very good, but we do not live in a society, which are extremely easy to manipulate by using a clever marketing campaign. People throwing money into the cans do not reflect Schools, whether their penny will go to equipment for hospitals, or be fired for the year as a light to heaven. But there are concerts, the festival, is a fun and everyone is happy to pay. Instead, such a small, modest share, which do not give anything in return are impressive unnoticed despite pierdyliona clicks “I like it” na fejsie…. This is terrible.
