If a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, an awesome blog, then, must begin with a single post.
I’ve owed this to myself for quite a while. After a friend casually encouraged me to start a food blog three long years ago, I thought, “Yeah, I could probably do something like that.” The idea has been festering ever since–mental drafts have been composed, layouts have been tinkered with, receiving a prestigious blogger award has been envisioned (if those even exist). After three years and seeing things like “Julie and Julia” and writing a brief travel blog , the will was still at the front of my mind. But somehow, apprehension loomed over me and I kept asking myself questions like, “What if my blog is a sad creation that finds its rightful home in some dark corner of cyberspace? What if I become one of those manic bloggers who believe their virtual world is their real world? What if I write something that could one day be held against me in my bid for President (of the USA? of the PTA? of Ice Cream Eaters Anonymous?). My blog has been a fully formed vision; I’ve only lacked the courage to push “publish.”
But the clock, I’ve discovered, is always ticking, the food keeps getting tastier, and that button won’t push itself.
I have a mad passion for, a deep relationship with, and an unyielding obsession with… food.
And I’m finally ready to share that with the world.
