We’ve been down this road before. You know the drill. First, I apologize for being missing in action. Then I say there’s a new plan in town. Then I write about food anyway. Or I don't write at all. Same old, same old.
I’m going to be a bit more open this time around. I haven’t posted in a month because I have not been sure what to write. It’s not that my life is lacking in content. I’ve got way too much content at the moment. I haven’t been writing because I haven’t decided how I want this blog to move forward. In the beginning of July, I committed to writing twice a month but I haven't done that. I don't want to write just to hear myself type.
It’s clear to me that writing about food is not enough. It may be enough for you, but it is definitely not enough for me. Don’t get me wrong. I love talking about food. I love eating food. You should take a look at the change in my jeans size. I love taking photos of food. I may still not love meal planning. Or cooking. Every. Single. Day. But I do enjoy what I do. I can’t actually believe anyone reads it. (Hi, Mom!)
I mentioned a couple of months ago that I was going back to school. I’m happy to say that the first semester was amazing. I learned a ridiculous amount in a very short period of time. While I was in it, I felt like I might drown if I didn’t stop moving. But I am here to say that if you have any inkling of wanting to change what you do, of wanting to start a new adventure, of going back to school, you should totally do it. Don’t worry about being too old. Shenee Howard calls this your bullshit list. You should read about it. And then recognize it for what it is.
Anyway, I'm not going to commit to anything this time around except that I'm going to spend some time figuring out where this blog is going and not bother you until I've got a plan. A real, live plan. Until then, send me your notes. Tell me your thoughts. I'm open to suggestions. I'm ready to listen. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me most days on Instagram. Thanks for your input.
