Mise En Place

The web is a wonderful place and as a relatively new blogger I’ve been looking at what works for others.  Having a schedule when you blog seems to be something that works for not only bloggers, but readers. If you can establish the expectation that certain things will arrive on a regular basis, it makes everyones life easier and more efficient.   Last night I couldn’t sleep and was cruising around looking at different food/photography sites that I admire, and stumbled onto a new site for me, Indian Simmer.

Indian Simmer has some great photography, and very good tips on making your blog photography better. In addition to that it also opened my eyes to a great scheduling idea.  Prerna, the creator behind Indian Simmer, posts “Wordless Wednesdays” each week and simply puts up one or two photos. Prena’s readers can expect beautiful photography each Wednesday, and she has a consistant post to plan for ahead of time.

After thinking a bit more about that concept and how I could incorporate that idea into my own blog, I’ve come up with “Mise En Place Monday.”  Mise en Place is a french culinary term meaning to have all your ingredients necessary for a dish prepared and ready to combine up to the point of cooking.

In this case, Monday is the beginning of my “regular work week” at Harvard University as a photographer, and by creating a regular post on Monday, that will feature one or two food photos, it will serve as my very own Mise en Place.

Look for a new post each Monday, and Remember, Food is Love!
