For anyone who has followed a link here from Pinterest (which seems to happen quite a bit despite my limited links) or for my friends and family who have read the blog in the past, you know I haven’t been around in awhile. There are a variety of reasons for this, but it has mostly been about poor time management. I am pretty busy during the school year, but I really do want to blog and I have decided I just need to make it a priority. I never knew how much time blogging actually takes.
I have spent the last month stockpiling drafts of blog posts so that I can have a back up for when things get too busy. I have also decided to expand my scope a bit and to not worry about posting everyday. I will still blog primarily about food and recipes (through the scope of life) but I also want to include community events, information (maybe even interviews) about local businesses, my personal musings on whatever may be on my mind, books I’ve read lately, links to read etc. I am planning to post 3-4 times a week, but I am not going to get discouraged if that does not always happen.
I am also trying to learn about the technical parts of blogging. I am really not very tech savvy. I am still trying to figure out how to turn text into links, format things, make a recipes link page etc. I recently purchased a WordPress For Dummies book, so hopefully that helps once I get around to reading it. Please bear with me while I get those things figured out. I do have a decent camera, a computer and an internet connection so I feel I have the most important tools and the rest will get better as I keep learning.
I love constructive criticism, suggestion and advice of any kind, so please feel free to share. What do you like about what you see? What would you like to see more/less of? I want to make this a resource for good recipes and community information for everyone.
Regular posting will start on Tuesday the 23rd- the first day of fall! The start of a new season (my favorite season) seemed like a perfect time to start a “new” adventure.
* I just included some of my favorite pictures from the summer to break up the text a bit :)
