This blog has been quiet the past few months. I know it. You know it. Between moving and renovating and housewarming and changes at work (both my own and Shawn’s), I’m having difficulty finding the balance in everything. I want to post more, have more recipes, more photos, more sharing. But wanting to find the time and actually finding the time are very different things. I struggle with the balance.
Shawn, clearly demonstrating that he is great at finding balance
In taking this time off (intentional or not), I’ve realized a few things about me and my connection to this blog:
1. I really love blogging, and I really love blogging about food.
2. I want to improve on this blog, posting more regularly, improving the quality of my photos, the range of recipes, the look and design of the blog itself. I want this to be a place of loveliness and deliciousness for you to visit each day.
3. I want to start bringing my life into this blog more. I’ve been keeping my personal life at an arm’s length thus far, and I don’t exactly know why. But I know that the blog’s I enjoy reading have a personal level to them, and that’s what I want here. Something that you can connect besides (super delicious) recipes.
As I’m nearing my one-year blogging anniversary (crazy!) I am making a personal vow to really turn this blog around and into what I want for it. There may be a few changes around here (I am looking to change domains soon and will keep you well-posted when that happens), but know that I am only looking to improve both yours and my experience at The Humble Gourmet.
Lastly, I want to thank everyone of you who reads, comments, and supports me in this (not so little) side project. I appreciate every last one of you. Thanks so much for helping me figure out the balance!
