As I’m sure you’ve all noticed, I haven’t been very active on this here blog. OK, I haven’t done anything at all since late summer, and there are been several reasons for that. First and foremost, things are moving along with my life in exciting ways, which require me to turn my attention to my family. All good things, I assure you. Just moving on to the next stages of life, and I’m really excited about it.
Secondly, but most importantly, this blog filled a hole for me when I was going through a bumpy patch career-wise. I wasn’t happy in my 9-5 life and food blogging seemed to give me something to look forward to at the end of each day. Having said that, I absolutely underestimated the amount of work a fully functional blog worthy of your reading time takes to maintain. Even though I don’t always feel like it, I’m a creative person by nature, and while the need/drive/expectation to produce top-quality recipes on a weekly basis was something that encouraged and excited me in the beginning of this project, it slowly got to be overwhelming.
There are plenty of food bloggers out there who are absolutely miraculous at what they do. How they manage to fit it all in with the rest of their hectic lives I’ll never know, but I’m honored to have counted myself among them even for this very short two-year period of my own blog. I now pass the baton to the next generation and hope they find as much enjoyment and inspiration in this world as I did.
To everyone who subscribed to Cuisineous and read my ramblings on a regular basis, thank you so much. It was the best experience I could have asked for at the time, and you all gave me the motivation to keep figuring out just how the heck to keep on cooking without burning my kitchen down.
This will be the last post on Cuisineous. Well, I shouldn’t say “last,” as I never know where life may lead me. But for now, I’ll be shutting the blog down to focus on building my family and making memories with them instead of for them.
Thanks again, and happy eating!
