Last Sunday Dessert By Candy turned 10 years old. It dawned on me how many things happened since the first day I took up writing and how much things changed. At the same time, I am glad that my love of cooking and writing is still the driving force behind Dessert By Candy. My blog may not be trendy nor famous but it remains my favourite place to share my stories both in and out of the kitchen.
Being a part of the blogging community, I often come across tips on increasing readership, guidelines on design aesthetics, how to engage through social media, and of course how to monetize from blogging. I read them with great interest but at the end of the day, I just want to cook fun things and hope you will try it some time too. Dessert By Candy ought to be my fun place to explore the enjoyment of great food.
Having said that, I did take a big step last year to “make things official”. I finally claimed the domain http://dessertbycandy.com! No more fidgeting with the long and clumsy URL when you want to check out my blog on your mobile device. It only took me more than 9 years to finally commit…but better late than never, right?
