ANNOUNCEMENT: Name Change Coming


I am so incredibly thankful to those that subscribe to my blog and/or visit regularly. You all warm my heart, truly you do.

This has been a great, FAST ride! I woke up this morning with almost 68,000 blog hits (since starting to write this, hits are now almost 80K! 1/3: now over 160K!). That is nuts! My first blog was released on 12/1/16. I am humbled by the response to this blog in such a short time. 

Hits to our site to check out the instructional blog I wrote on Instant Pot Buttons alone have reached over 40K (1/3: now over 100K)! Our next most popular posts have been our Whole Pressure Cooker Bundt Pan Chicken, our (Un) Stuffed Cabbage, our list of Favorite Pressure Cooker accessories, my Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal and one of my newest recipes, Pressure Cooker Macaroni and Cheese!

Because of the interest, I have decided that this is something I want to take SERIOUSLY. Instead of this free blogspot blog (which is great), I have decided to get a web developer (lucky enough for me, my husband owns Kraken Media and is a phenomenal web developer!). I am buying a real domain name, spending money on proper tools, and making plans for partnerships and collaborations.

Having said that, a name change is coming!

When I created the name, Simply Instant Pot, I was just happy to start writing and documenting my own experiments with the Instant Pot I received as a gift - I thought I would do it just as a hobby in my “spare time". With the interest having grown, I want to make sure I am not limiting myself to only Instant Pot users - I want to connect to all pressure cookers (no matter what brand they own). I have decided to move away from a name that singles out the Instant Pot.

In addition, I will share that I am currently pregnant, having a baby boy in March of 2017! I have a lovely 7 year old step daughter at home. I work full time in Corporate America. My husband has a demanding full-time job and runs his own web development business "on the side”. I already know what busy looks like. With a new baby to come… well, I am sure I will laugh at what I currently think of as busy. I want to use my website to connect with others who feel the same - Moms, Dads, grandparents. I plan to make baby food for my little boy and will definitely share my use of my pressure cooker!

I hope to eventually make this a full time gig - your support is EVERYTHING! I appreciate you all, more than you know.

Without further ado, I wanted to share the new name, scope and planned content I have defined for my new website, currently in development! #comingsoon

  1. That is awesome - all of it! I have been a "regular" pressure cooker user for eons and just recently received an Instant Pot, and I think including all pressure cookers is a wonderful idea. Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your son, also!
