I have been wanting to try these cinnamon rolls for sooooooooo long! But every year I felt like I couldn’t because somebody else had already blogged them. Isn’t that ridiculous?
Thank goodness, at some point this year I let go of my obsessive need to only post super original, unique recipes that had never been heard of before! I was missing out on so much good stuff by trying to be “original!”
(Teenagers should be reading this by the way. This is shaping up to be a great metaphor for high school…)
Everyone seems to think that the blogging market is “over-saturated,” and that “it’s all been done before.”
To that I say: Yeah! Sure! Absolutely! You are completely right. There are way too many of us food bloggers out there.
But I also say: so what?
So what that there are a million kajillion of us? That hasn’t stopped me from being successful. It hasn’t stopped my million kajillion other food blogging friends from being successful. It hasn’t stopped us from having new experiences or making new friends. It hasn’t stopped us from developing new skills and talents. It hasn’t stopped YOU from looking at 7 different kinds of chocolate chip cookies recipes on 7 different blogs, has it?
The over-saturated food blogging market isn’t holding anyone back! If anything, it’s pushing us forward and giving us momentum!
Can you see the great life lesson here? In allllllllllllll of my 3 long years of food blogging, I have learned this bit of wisdom (that I am now passing on to you):
DO WHAT MAKES YOU-OH SO-HAPPY. Even if what makes you happy isn’t “different,” or “unique,” or “special.” If something makes you happy, it’s special. And it’s important. And it’s very worthwhile. So just do it.
(See how I took that last line from Nike? That’s definitely been overdone. But I like it there, so I’m leaving it :) Case and point.)
So hey… here’s another pumpkin cinnamon roll recipe. Hope ya don’t mind! I sure didn’t!
