Some of you might know this but I didn’t get my start with blogging on Peanut Butter Runner. I actually had my food/recipe blog, Bakin’ & Eggs, for two years before launching Peanut Butter Runner. I posted recipes there 3-5 times a week. I started PBR because I was constantly asked how I could bake and cook like I did and stay in shape. At the time I was also starting to get more into pursuing fitness certifications so a healthy living blog made sense. My intention was never to give up Bakin’ & Eggs but as PBR took off and I became busy with my career transition, it feel to the wayside.
I originally didn’t want to combine the blogs because I thought it would be “neater” to keep them separate. I also didn’t want to feel pressured to only post healthy recipes because I love baking, sweets and enjoying and cooking indulgent food from time to time. I didn’t know how my Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Chicken would fly over here! 😉
But now I’m faced with a dilemma. I want to blog recipes, but where? Do I pick Bakin’ & Eggs back up and post a couple of recipes per week over there or do I create a separate area of Peanut Butter Runner that is devoted to recipes and keep it all under one roof? To explain, the recipes would be on a separate page and not show up on the home page. Kind of like a blog within a blog. If I create a separate area of PBR, I want to migrate all of my recipes from Bakin’ & Eggs over and shut that site down. That sounds like a technical nightmare!
So, I’ll put it out to those who are impacted by it. What is easier for you? Separate or together? And if I do combine, would you be okay with a mix of healthy and not so healthy recipes?
While I figure all of this out, here is the recipe for the Blueberry Crumb Bars that I baked a couple of weeks ago. We are in the height of blueberry season and if you can get your hands on some freshly picked berries, this recipe will not disappoint!
