I thought long & hard about what I should do with my blog. For a while of course, after the birth of my boy, I just put the whole thing on the back burner. Those of you who have kids know very well how those first couple of months are with a new baby: there’s no time to take a shower or even to have a coherent thought, let alone to update a blog! I initially found it shocking how much of a difference there was between my previous life (before-baby) and my current one (after-baby).
However, my boy is now 2 months (god, how the time passes) & I’m ready for some new blogging adventures, as I’m gradually starting to feel a connection to my previous self & my before-baby life. I’ve thought about the direction I want the blog to go in, and to be honest, achieving my 202 goals just doesn’t seem realistic anymore (particularly the having-to-read-novels-by-authors-like-Dostoevsky bit!) I do want to continue blogging though, so I’ve decided to be realistic & plan something that I can actually achieve within the time frame I’ve set myself. This blog has been, from the beginning, more a food blog than anything else… so what I’ve decided is that I will cut my list in half. I’ll go from the overambitious 202 goals to a more modest 101 goals, concentrating on the food-related ones. I won’t actually delete the non-food-related goals from my blog, since I feel they belong here, & I may feel that I want to write about some of them from time to time. But my main objective will be to focus on goals 102 to 202, all about food! I hope to achieve most of them by the end of the 1001 days, so wish me luck.
Any changes you see on the blog are due to this change in direction.. So. Hello again to everyone who’s still out there, I look forward to reconnecting with everyone, & even more than that, I look forward to reconnecting with my kitchen & cookbooks!
