Today it has been one year since I started this blog. I can’t believe it has been that long. It has gone by fast. What a year it has been.
I started this blog as a fun writing project and also as a way to make a cooking journal for myself. You see I love to try new recipes, which is good. The problem is I forget about them. My husband will ask me to make something and I can’t remember it. He will want those really good cookies I made six months ago and I will have no clue as to what he is talking about. The problem was that I try so many recipes it is hard for me to always remember which ones he/we liked. I had thought about putting together a “cookbook” of sorts of our favorite recipes. But I decided writing it in the form of a blog would be more fun and it has been.
I started this blog mainly for me and I never imagined how many of you would also enjoy it. So I want to thank all of you who are regular readers of my blog. Thank you for all your comments, questions, and input. I love hearing from all of you.
This blog has opened up a creative outlet for me that I love. It has kept me motivated to cook many times that I haven’t felt like it. I have kept a menu plan for years, but posting it weekly has forced me to plan even on the week’s I don’t feel like it. And by the way in the end I am always glad I planned a menu. Because of blogging, I have found all of your blogs, and have found so many new recipes. I have found tips and advice from you. I never realized all I would learn just through blogging. I am so glad I started a blog.
I know though that I have a lot of readers who have never commented. So if you have never commented please leave a comment on this post. I would love to hear from you and visit your blog if you have one.
I also want to take this opportunity to ask you what you like most about this blog or what you want to see more of. Sometimes I feel like I may be posting too many desserts or too many tips, etc. So what do you all think? Would you like more main dish recipes, more healthy cooking posts, even more desserts,product reviews, kitchen tips, etc? I am open for suggestions. I really want to know what you want to hear about.
