updates and excuses 4

Lately I haven’t been updating as frequently here on the blog, which makes me a little sad — but I like my excuses. I’ve been working more at my favorite job ever (various roles at a great local cafe), and actually doing some food/photography on the side for another amazing company I work with. On top of that, most of the time I do spend in my own kitchen has been to really fine-tune my bread baking techniques, which is exciting for me but probably boring to read about. It all keeps me pretty busy, and most importantly, it gives me my creative fix and some pretty good meals that I didn’t have to cook, which in turn has made me a lazier blogger.

I’m sure you’ll forgive me, but at the same time I’ve been trying to get some structure back in my life so I can keep finding ways to genuinely and consistently share our life and passion through food on this site, since it’s important. It goes without saying that  the more you all stay involved and comment with your own wisdom (or non-wisdom, we’re not picky), the more I’m able to know what directions to take my various rambling thoughts and made-up recipes. Right now, the majority of our traffic is from Google, which is not a bad thing, but it means that there are lots of people visiting who only are looking for one thing and then leave once they’ve found it.

Surprisingly, even though we have a pretty good readership that follows along here, there usually aren’t a lot of comments or thoughts that are added when posts go up. Apart from making me just a tiny bit sad, it also means that new people who stop by don’t see the conversation going, and are less likely to add their thoughts as well. So there’s another great reason to stop keeping things to yourself.

Anyway, friends, don’t be concerned by my busy schedule– I’m learning a lot about life and food, and that means that it’s only a matter of time before it overflows onto the blog so I can share it all with you.

Hope all’s well. Talk to you soon!

    I enjoy your posts. You don’t really have a lot of questions or whatnot though for all us readers..

    I hear ya on fine tuning your bread baking techniques – it does take a good bit of practice and how many times can you write a blog post devoted to just that? I’ve been doing the same thing myself, playing around with a sourdough starter and after months of experimenting, I think I finally came up with a great whole grain flour blend for baguettes(which reminds me I might be ready to blog about it myself!).

    I had no idea take them a meal had a blog. Good to know!

    As for comments, I don’t always get a good number of them either. There are some fellow bloggers out there who tend to leave comments on almost every post (just to let me know they’ve dropped by I suppose), but what I find happens a good bit of the time is in talking with someone they mention my blog and something they enjoyed reading on there, a recipe they tried. Or I’ll get an email that is a response of sorts to a post I put up. So I find my little blog does start conversations, just not always on my blog.

    Just found your great site while looking for a pulled pork recipe.
    I will be back when I need another recipe &/or some kitchen inspiration.
