Mom's Kitchen Lebanon 




1- How long have you been blogging? its been a good 10 years. The blog is fairly new. We started June 1, 2010 
2- How many hours per day do you dedicate to the blog? it depends on what i am writing about.  An hour. Since the blog is new, we keep testing new themes, widgets, plugins, etc. 
3- Has it been worth it so far? Yeah, its been amuzing sometimes and rewarding. Absolutely. We have received nothing but positive feedback. Plus, it drives traffic to our main site. 
4- How many page views does your blog get daily?

it depends which blog.

http://ghassandeeb.com is fairly new, doing around 130 views per day. it hit more before i become a bit lazy lately :).
It depends. We get the most hits when a new recipe is added.
5- How many blogs do you have or write for currently?

currently two.

- http://ghassandeeb.com (foodie)

- http://pfff.us (whatever comes to my mind)

- http://orchiddiaries.com (my orchid's diaries)
Besides Mom’s Kitchen, I recently started Arabianism http://arabianism.blogspot.com/It’s 4 days old J
6- How many hours do you dedicate to them every day? some extended coffee breaks 30 minutes – give or take. 
7- Do you think one needs to post daily to be successful? not sure. but if so, i never experienced it. Not necessarily. Interesting posts make a successful blog.   
8- Is there an ideal posting frequency? I guess whenever you have something worthy to say or tell. I believe posting for the sake of posting is a big mistake. Until you have something interesting to post, don’t post anything.
9- What is the biggest blogging mistake you did? it was with my first blog. http://erobot.org it was a hit and had a good success but went obsolete after i drop interest in it. Not mistakes but I have received advice from friends on how to improve the blog and how to optimize it. 

10- What is the biggest mistake you see in blog designs?

i dont look for errors but usually i like clean, fresh and minimal taste. I’m not a big fan of dark backgrounds and a cluttered home page.  
11- Twitter is a distraction or a good promotional tool? twitter been great so far.  Good promotional tool. Drives traffic.
12- Do you think that any professional should have a blog? If most big corporates find it useful to share ideas between its employees means that blogs are useful. Depends. For Mom’s Kitchen, we have our main website which is more corporate but we did want to create a social space for informal updates, recipes and behind-the-scene photos and posts and that’s why the blog was essential. 
13- If you could give an advice for a novice blogger, what would it be? no idea really, just be and express yourself. I am a novice myself but the advice I can give is don’t take too long to add a new post. Especially if the blog is new. 
14- What is the secret of your success, expressed in one word? You. Dedication
15- If you could write a post on any blog in the world, which one would you pick? i dont think i would like to. Mashable
