It’s goodbye for now…

Pumpkin Spice Cookies /

I have decided that it is time to step away from my blog.

*Deep breath…*

It has given me years of fun and enjoyment since I began as GoodEggFoodie back in, yikes, back in 2011. I am so grateful for all of the fun times and amazing experiences it has opened up to me, but more importantly I have met some true friends for life thanks to this corner of the internet, and for that I will be forever grateful.

However, I think it is good to recognise when something is no longer bringing joy. There are probably hundreds of thousands of food blogs and they can’t all get seen. My intention was only to write about what I love. But with so many blogs being SEO-perfect playbooks (and hats off to them BTW), it makes it harder to get any views when you want to just write from the heart rather than from the analytics and research.

Don’t get me wrong, I know all about SEO – I have worked in comms for 20 years, and I consider myself to be a creative wordsmith. But I wrote here as a break from work, so when it started to feel like hard work I knew it was time to leave. 

I will leave the site live for now – those delicious brownie recipes are going nowhere yet! I will look again at the end of the year and decide when to go dark.

And who knows, maybe one day 2.0 will rise from the ashes! But for now I will be reading blogs rather than managing one.

Don’t worry, I am still a greedy guts! So head over to my Instagram where I plan to share recipes alongside my usual food and drink finds. Plus, I am dipping my toes into podcasting and the She Eats podcast is on Spotify, Apple and everywhere else you’d expect to find it. So subscribe on your listening platform as new episodes are incoming.

If you are looking for a guest foodie writer for your own website or blog, get in touch. I still have lots to say and am up to my eyes in baking ideas, cheese recommendations and small business love 🧀😍

If you are reading this, thanks for reading, for making my recipes and for connecting. I hope you think of me every time you bite in to a perfect chocolate brownie or flapjack.

Big love, and happy baking

Thanks for all the memories!
