Ready, Set....POST!

Hellooo? anyone still out there?
I know, I know - I've been a bad, bad blogger. 1 post a month does not a blogger make, and for that I apologize. I can give a million excuses under the sun, but the truth is I know people who are much busier than I am who manage to post more than once a day. I need to get back into a groove.

I know what's happening to me - I'm getting way too caught up in the 'is this blog-worthy' debate. Somehow unless I'm making a 2 tiered phyllo pie of durian fruit I feel like I'm not doing something exciting enough to share.

The truth is that I've been cooking, but not photographing because I'm self-editing so much.
Enter the self-imposed blogger challenge. 
I'm going to keep my camera on me for the next 30 days...and I need to post a picture each day. Sometimes I might have a story to go with it, sometimes it might just be a caption. But frankly, I need to get over myself because I love my blog ... and I don't want it to fade into the night.

I need to get back to why I'm doing this. For me, this is a creative outlet. 
I'm not writing this blog to please other people, or one-up the next blogger. This is a place to capture the things I love: food and cooking, and sharing it with the people I care about. Sometimes those people are at the table alongside me - and some are off in the vast world of the internets....

Let's see how this goes shall we?
Ready, Set....POST!!

  2. Love having you back! And can't waaaaaait to see you Sunday!

  3. best of luck! Looking forward to seeing more of you.

  4. I am such a self-editor too... I think it's good sometimes because I'm not putting boring content out there but it's also often stressful. It's good to let go! LOVE your challenge.

  5. Yay! Do what you need to do for you!

  6. Yay! Welcome back. I love your blog and I've been missing it :)
