All Over The Place, and Back Again


I’ve said more than once that I’d write here even if nobody read it. To be honest, the last few years have been tough, and while I’d love to say I got all creative and such I sorta didn’t. Life, work, and aging have taken their toll. There’ve been a good few times I thought about packing it in – and literally every time I did, somebody would come out of nowhere to tell me how much the dug a post, or a recipe or the site in general.

that kind of thing truly warms my heart – and if a guy ever needed a clue that what he was doing was something he should keep doing, those would be it.

so I’m pulling back a bit -losing the aspirations of a big, gnarly website, and settling back to a relatively simple recipe and food blog here at WordPress. As you can see, all the design stuff went away – what I’m doing, for the time being, is stripped down to a fancier version of how I create – you won’t see my notes, bibliographies, work ups, trial work, etc, but the end result here won’t be gussied up much.

I’m thankful to be able to do what I do, and ever beholden to those of you who, perhaps unbeknownst to you, said something at exactly the right time. I’ll be here, keepin’ on.

  1. Interesting; I’ve been debating whether to continue with my blog or let it go. During the pandemic lots of people were in lockdown and spending much more time online. Way more cooking was going on as well. As things opened back up fewer people were spending time with either activity and it felt like maybe the time had come to stop. As soon as I started thinking about it I started getting positive comments again. Now, I’m not sure. But y’know, happy new year no matter what!
