Happy Friday, all! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted in here…like, since before the baby arrived, and that’s been 10 1/2 months ago!
Over the past couple of weeks I have been working on converting the recipe index over to pictures instead of just links, and let me just tell you that going back through every. single. post. since 2011 and seeing some of the old photos… some of them literally made me cringe. I mean, if I’m being honest, when I started this blog back in 2011, I had no idea what I was doing. I thought I had to post something everysingleday, and sometimes I’d make multiple meals in a night…and then post them all the next day (or that night, even.) I literally was flying blind. I loved to cook, and I thought writing a food blog would be fun, but I had no idea how to take a “good” picture. Obviously. And I contemplated not having those pictures show, but then I thought…you know, since the index shows each category from newest to oldest, by scrolling you can really see the change and improvement over the past 6 years. Some of the biggest and best bloggers didn’t start off with the amazing photos that they have today. It’s a process for most, and I’m ok with that! And, it will give me more incentive to remake and rephotograph some of those oldies!!
I am still working on the conversion…since I moved the blog over from Blogger to a self-hosted site of my own, all those old posts I have to pull the pictures from and do all this “behind the scenes” stuff, which…takes some time. So, bare with me as I work on it little by little, and take a peek as the first half is about done…have yourself a little chuckle – or a cringe – at how this little blog started out!
