Taking the blog's temperature

Good afternoon! I hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

Jillian and I have been trying to figure out how to increase both the posting here at What's in {Your} Oven? as well as the traffic in general. I'm working on getting us listed over at Mormon Mommy Blogs, and Jillian suggested that maybe we change the challenge day of the the week.

Currently, we post challenges on Sundays, but we realize that's the day some people do their fancy and/or experimental cooking. I've put a poll at the top of the blog where you can vote for whichever day of the week you prefer challenges to be posted. We're flexible. :)

Keep in mind we also list the upcoming challenges on the right sidebar, so you can plan grocery lists and menus ahead of time (we'll adjust the dates accordingly when we figure out what day of the week is best for everyone). Also, if you don't get around to posting your recipe within the challenge week, please still post it! We are all here to learn from each other and to get new recipes, so no holding out!

As always, please let us know if you have any suggestions, questions, or problems, or if you have a challenge ingredient you want to try. You can reach us both at whatsinyouroven(at)yahoo(dot)com.
