…was my very first blog post. We’ve had quite the history over the last two years, this little blog and myself.
I’ve changed the name, changed from blogger to wordpress to self-hosted, changed the “look and feel” and have a few more things (my own logo!) currently in the works that I’m really excited about.
Blogging is a very odd thing. Some days I feel like the un-cool 7th grader who can’t eat lunch with the popular girls. Some days I’m amazed that I’ve “met” so many people that share the same interests and passions as me, yet I probably haven’t actually met them in person. Some I have met. (Thanks for the picture Holly!)
But what keeps me going isn’t the number of comments that I get each day or my “stats.” It’s my readers, my friends who faithfully read on a daily basis, my family members who always know what’s going on in my crazy, little life and the Taster who “suffers” through luke-warm dinners on a regular basis, yet has still always encouraged me to keep blogging.
I won’t lie – there are times that I’ve wanted to quit. (Would you want to feel like an un-cool 7th grader again?!) There have been conversations…
Me: No one even reads my blog, it’s pointless, wah, wah, wah.
Taster: We just bought a DSLR camera – you CAN’T quit!
Me: Urghh, can we return it?!
Then there are the times when I think about opportunities I’ve had, people I’ve met along the way and it makes up for all of the late night work. And best of all – when I hear that someone made (and enjoyed) a recipe; tried something new or has changed their life for the better – thats really all I need to keep going.
So Thank You! For reading, for commenting and for sticking around. If there’s anything you would like to see more or less of this next year let me know!
