Blogging and Grandma's Sauce
I'm an Italian. (It's important to know for this post.)
When I was younger, my family and I used to visit my grandparents' house to do one thing: Eat.
A side note: When I was a baby, my Italian grandmother would say to my mom about me, "He's so skinny. Feed him. Feed him." I became a chubbo.
SPAGHETTI SAUCE INGREDIENTS
My grandmother was not only overseer of my diet, but she was also known for making the best spaghetti sauce on the planet.
Of course, her ingredients were a secret, but not this other approach of hers. You see, the key to grandma's sauce was she let it simmer. (Say it to yourself three times: Simmer, simmer, simmer. See now you're simmering, too.)
Grandma's spaghetti sauce would just not be the same if the simmering process were excluded.
WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO DO WITH BLOGGING?
It has everything to do with blogging and writing good blog posts. Don't forget to allow your writing to simmer a while.
I've seen it work for myself many times over. Something left simmering overnight or from the morning to the afternoon (you get the idea) and I come back to it - the writing - and voila! I have something better to say or just the right tweaks to make it work that I wouldn't have had if I just pressed "Publish" too soon.
(So say it again: simmer, simmer, simmer.) It just might be the touch your blog posts need to be recognized as the "pezzo di resistenza." (Now that's Italian.) Mama mia!
