I started this blog in 2012, as a means for me to put my recipes/thoughts down, a way of expressing my views on all things food. Since 2012 I have had so much fun, frolics, highs and lows and the blog has been a big part of my life. As time went by I became a much more confident writer, cook and reviewer. This blog has taught me a lot, that much is true.
Alas, things change, people change and the world around us changes. Peoples habits changes, their likes and dislikes. Trends come and go, and today’s hot new thing will be tomorrows ‘that was so yesterday’. Blogging has changed considerably since I began way back in 2009 (I used to run a men’s lifestyle blog before this). Back then, people were much more fixed to a desk, at home or on a laptop. Smart phones and tablets were emerging, and a lot more expensive than they are now, and youtube was only just emerging as a new medium for serious content creators. Traditional written blogs were the norm, and they were where people got their news, stories, tutorials, funny cats etc.
I am moving on, to a new exciting venture….
I few years ago I wrote a post telling you all that I wanted to start making youtube videos alongside the blog…yeah, that never happened did it? This was a combination of lack of equipment, time, and a deep fear of being on camera. I didn’t think I could do it, or that I would be any good at it. Well, I have bitten the bullet and jumped right in the deep end. I HAVE A YOUTUBE CHANNEL! WOO HOO! The channel is basically everything I have been doing on here, but in video form.
So what is going to happen to the blog Adam!?
Ok, the long and short of it, is the blog will be disbanded. I won’t be updating it any longer. Why? Well, I just cannot manage both, and I want to focus all my efforts on youtube, as I feel it allows me to be more creative, and I can interact with people more. Do not panic, I do have a plan! So the blog will stay up for a while, as I figure out how and when I am going to do things. Ultimately what I will do is make video versions of all my recipes, so they won’t be lost. I will then download all of my posts to then re upload to a new domain, related to my youtube channel. So you will still be able to access my blog as such, just that this domain ‘thebritishmenu.com’ will eventually be deleted. I am also considering offering all my recipes in a downloadable format, so you can keep them on your computer, laptop, phone etc.
Ok, you may or may not have noticed that all of my social media profiles have changed to ‘adamseats’ rather than the british menu. Un surprisingly this is the name of my youtube channel, so I have changed them to fit in with the new name. Nothing will change in terms of these profiles, so if you follow me on twitter, facebook, instagram etc, you don’t need to do anything. If you haven’t followed me, and would like to, I will put links below for you.
It wasn’t easy for me to make this decision, and that was because of you guys. I love each and every one of you, whoever you are wherever you are. If you have been with me from the start or started reading last week, I consider you my friends, and you all mean the world to me. I really hope you will understand the decision, and will follow me into this new exciting era of blogging. Plus, you get to see my devilishly handsome face, and my witty rapor on camera! HA! I hear you decry! Please note, that I am new to this youtube stuff, so don’t expect steven spielberg quality just yet, still finding my feet with it.
The past 6 years have been a blast, and I look forward to the next 6 years as a youtuber! it’s still sinking in a bit that I’m actually doing it!
Ok, so I have compiled a list of links for you to follow me on, most importantly is the link to my youtube channel. Click on the red subscribe button, and that’s it! You’ll get a notification when i post a new video, pretty nifty, and simple.
My youtube channel is called ‘Adams Eats’ and cane be found here; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGt3YurGl3xteH_-JIeor5Q
