Eclairs for Geeky Bakers and Stainless Steel Cookware

Thank you to everyone who responded to me about whether or not to continue posting on this blog.  It sounds like many of you still rely on this blog for updates, so I'll keep it running.  To save time, I will no longer post the ingredient list, equipment, and additional notes under the video in blog posts.  It's all in the description of the video.  If you need to find it, click the "YouTube" icon on the bottom of the video while it's playing.  This will open up the video on YouTube.  Click "Show More" below the video and you'll get all the accompanying info.

I got lazy the last few weeks and haven't posted the latest videos on the blog.  Here they are:

[Action Required] Do I need to keep posting videos on this blog?

One of the many things I've learned at YouTube camp last week is that it's important to have a presence on the social media platforms where your audience hangs out. Apparently, the whole world hangs out on Instagram and blogs are no longer in vogue. So here are my questions to you:

1) Do any of you rely on this blog to be notified of my new videos?

2) If the answer to the first question is yes, could you subscribe to my YouTube Channel directly? If you want to be notified when I post new videos, you can hit a little bell button after subscribing.

Last week, I made an Instagram account, so if that's the social media drug of your choice, you can follow me on Instagram.  There is also a Facebook option.

Since I don't have a social media department, it would save me a lot of time not to have to make unnecessary posts on this blog.  I will still post occasional non-video content, like trip reports.  Thank you so much for providing me with inspiration, wonderful questions, and insightful comments.
