This blog is still just a little baby! Please be lenient in your criticisms of the layout, photographs and the overall appearance of the blog, as I am still learning the tools and tricks of WordPress.com.
Do not, however, refrain from criticizing the style in which I write, my self-proofreading skills, or any of the content I provide. I have thick skin—I’m a cook, after all.
The “Like” function:
If you “like” something, you are not necessarily agreeing with it, or endorsing it, or any other verb you can affix with it, rather, you are giving the author confidence which may help to compose something that you, or someone else, may really, really like. So “like” liberally!
I dreamed about having a blog for several years before I felt like I had enough good material to fill some pages. Actually, I had some serious writer’s block, until I started to write for the sake of writing—nothing more. What came of it was some real nonsense, until eventually, it broke. I published an article in a local newspaper and while I awaited its print day, I typed a piece to have in the “queue,” if you will, and one idea after another started to spew out! I had so much good writing that I needed an outlet.
I reserve the best, most likely to be published for the newspaper, but I now have an outlet for the…what’s the opposite of writer’s block? Say, writer’s-cramping-hand.
The point is, if you have something to write, start a blog. It’s a heck of a lot of fun.
