Blog Evolution

Blog Evolution

What?! A new post, finally! I know, I was so good about posting every week (or mostly every week) for almost two years now but I assure you I haven’t returned to my old ways of posting… intermittently at best. There are reasons for this most recent lack of posts (and social media and not reading or commenting on your posts – though that’s not entirely new). Partly life and family has kept me very busy. And even more, I’ve been plotting a blog evolution for several months now and therefore spent my time getting those pieces in place rather than working on weekly posts. I am starting a monthly […]

I tried cinnamon and salt and Ras El Hanout. I even made Swedish coffee which was a mess but tasted good. I entertained the idea of having a blog about my experiments with coffee (more like making it an itinerant addition to my tumblr). But […]

You know what makes me a bad blogger? drafts. I come across an article or an idea or even another blog that’s interesting to the point of being worth discussing or at the very least writing about. So, I throw it into a draft and now it’s safe; links won’t be lost, text is copied and pasted so it won’t vanish from the internet, thoughts are recorded enough to get the gist of what I was thinking but not so much that it’s a fully fledged blog. Sometimes it’s just the title of a blog about something I want to write about… eventually… And then it sits, waiting for me […]
