In the “good old days” which happened about 13 years ago for me, I used a blogging platform called Blogspot. That’s because that’s what was widely used. I used to easily blog 2 to 3 times a week, just giving little updates. This was truly before most people knew what social media was and how to use it. Putting up a simple blog post with one of my (mostly) mediocre photos was acceptable. I wrote the posts for my newsletter readers and occasionally someone else would stumble across one of my posts. I actually had at least two blogs going at one time: one was The Veggie Queen and the other was Green Cooking in the Pressure Cooker. As you know, timing is everything…
By the time that most people started blogging on WordPress I was tired of blogging and became one of the worst, least consistent bloggers around. You see, it didn’t matter to me how great the photos were or much else. I wrote because I had something to say and share. I still do but mostly reserve that for my monthly newsletter which goes out to my many thousands of subscribers (you can subscribe HERE).
I have not upgraded my camera or my photography skills. My writing is still straight from the heart and not flowers and rainbows (although I certainly have a fondness for both). I like to cut to the chase…
So why am I writing this? In this world where everything we do is written about, photographed and screamed from rooftops, I just don’t want to play in that sandbox or play that game. (Am I mixing my metaphors enough?)
I write when I want to write. I don’t have a blogging schedule, nor do I want one. I want to post the unenhanced photos that I take although I wish that my photography skills were better. What I do care about is people and helping you, and others, learn to live their lives with the utmost health, happiness, love, gratitude and maybe even some integrity (if you choose it).
I hope that you will want to connect with me but if you don’t, that’s OK, too. I am not here to please you but I always want you to feel free to reach out to me if you have questions or concerns. I know a lot about nutrition and food, and more about life than I sometimes care to know. Please consider making me NUMBER 1 on your list of not-so-good bloggers.
I do hope to have a blog post up soon about my amazing trip to Philadelphia with my good friend Fran Costigan (@goodcakesfran). So until inspiration next strikes me, please enjoy as many moments of your life as possible. (No photo necessary but looking at this might bring you some joy or laughter at my continued inability to take good photos even when the subjects don’t move.)
