The day before yesterday I was doing an analysis of whatever I have done on my blog in 2017. I started with counting the number of the blog post I have written in 2017 and found 91 new posts; 14 drafts and around 34 edited posts. There are months when I just ended on writing 3 blog posts and months when I ended on writing 15 posts. I changed pictures from several old posts and that was another reason I didn’t come with more new blogs. I decided to work on the quality than quantity. In this post, I will be sharing Most loved Recipes 2017 & a few before-after Photographs!
I relied on the number of visit counts to check most loved recipes. I assumed the more is the number of visitors the more it is liked by the readers or accepted by them. Actually, I tried to quantify love! Irony it is; ain’t it 😉 !
Coming to the Before-After Photographs; I ended on revisiting several old posts to change the photographs. I am a novice food photographer however, I am passionate about food photography. That probably is the reason I always re-visit old posts and try to improve the photographs.
Most loved Recipes 2017:
In 2017, my year started with The Double Chocolate Rum Balls. I made those using the leftover Cakes from Christmas and I did the same this year as well.
I found in the month of February, I mostly wrote the reviews and there was only one recipe! However, the recipe is a special one, loved by my family. Comforting Macher Jhol (Bengali Fish Curry) and this was the title: Aloo Fulkopi diye Macher Jhol and my way of celebrating Valentine’s day with comfort food!
In the month of March, there was again only one recipe. It was the Quinoa Pulao with Spice infused Paneer and Review of Olive Tree products.
The month of April had one of my favorite creation with a series of photographs. The Sunshine Girl and her Strawberry Orange Popsicle is having my little one posing with the popsicles.
Though I wrote several recipes in May, however, Mango Mastani indeed was th4e most viewed one.
It seems June was the month of recipes and I am really confused which one to share. There was Doodh Maach which was featured on Polka Cafe; then there was Shutki Chingri Bhorta which according to me is having one of my best click of the year.
July again was full of the recipes and product reviews. Another difficult month when it comes to choosing a single post. Surprisingly a Panna Cotta recipe from the month for maximum features which was having the recipe of Banoffee Panna Cotta with Cherry Compote and review of Sprigs Banoffee.
There were several recipes in August, however, the post that attracted people was not a single recipe but this one: 10 Ilish Mach recipes to try, before you die!
From the recipes I wrote in September, seems Bangladeshi Chicken Roast | Biyebarir Chicken Roast was loved most by the readers!
October again was having several recipes however the most loved one was Janai-er Monohara! Monohara.
In the month of November Kumror Chakka was the recipe that was most visited. It was featured on Bengali Newspaper Ajkal as well.
Last but not the least December and the month with maximum recipes. Surprisingly the last post of the year Mulled Wine was the most visited one!
Before- After Food Photographs:
After around 10 years of food blogging, I know one thing, there is no shortcut when it comes to revisiting own work. I probably am my biggest critique. Needless to say, I try to re-visit old posts to update those at times with the writing at times the food photographs. I am a novice photographer and initially used to use a mobile camera to click the pictures. Even when I started using the DSLR I had no sense of lighting, focus, aperture etc. Below are a few posts where I updated the pictures in 2017.
