I was a bad blogger today 🙁
My smoothie from this morning held me over until about 2:00pm (!!!), but my lunch break wasn’t until 3, and we didn’t have any food at the office. So for 60 minutes (that’s a long time in the life of a foodie, my friends!) I was left to my own devices and dreamt of 100-layer lasagnas, mountainous ice cream sundaes, and platters of bread with every manner of sweet and savory topping known to man. Thus you can understand why, in the midst of my starvation-driven panic, I forgot to take my camera into Panera bread and snap photos of my Greek Salad and Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich.
Will you forgive me?
What’s that? You do? AND we’re friends again? Good!!! (whew!)
As soon as I recognized my folly I vowed to make it up to y’all by showing off what I did on my lunch break besides stuff my face with warm bread! There was some ooh-ing and aah-ing over this gal:
Tonight we have our community group, which should be awesome (as usual) and then lots of conversation about the photography business and where we feel the next step is. It’s a lot of fun planning this all out with Nate, but kind of overwhelming at the same time!
I swear my brain is fried from dreaming up delicious recipes all day, and here’s my proof from Twitter:
And so, although this question isn’t lame, it is coming out of left field: Why do you blog? What prompted you to start blogging? And what do you hope to gain or get out of blogging? I started blogging last summer at The Joyful Kitchen after seeing a preview for Julie and Julia as a way to record recipes, reviews, and random thoughts. November 2009 I read the article that featured Jenna and Angela in Self magazine, and started reading them frequently. December 2009 I changed The Joyful Kitchen to something I wrote every day, and from there launched Heather’s Dish. I initially started doing it as a way to record my food intake; however, it’s turned into a way for me to practice and to showcase my writing and photography, and turned into a way to meet some truly amazing women. I don’t always know what I want to come out of it though…I talk about writing a book, but I don’t really know what my “voice is or what the book would actually be about; I talk about doing photography, but I don’t plan on photographing food all day everyday and that’s it. I think more than anything it’s pushed me to rediscover the things I love to do and build on those in a way that will one day help mold me into the woman that I was made to be…and for that I could not be more thankful. You guys have all been a huge blessing to me, and I’m so glad you’re here 🙂
