I’m in a slump. Mojo can demonstrate.


The longer I go with this blog the more I realize that times like this are going to happen. There are going to be moments or days where I question why I do this and think about stopping. It feels somewhat like a natural cycle.

Also, the longer I go, the more I realize that my ability to blog through these types slumps is directly dependent on what else is going on in my life. Most likely, if I’m not here is because I’m everywhere else.

And over the past few weeks, when blogging has been slow I was doing things like:
Watching my brother get married
Enjoying the holidays with the family
Going out with friends for a night and pretending like we’re back in college
Turning a year older
Celebrating Hubster’s birthday
And making meals like this, which are really just a combination of seriously good bites. (And, yes, that’s our coffee table. Snack meals are made for coffee table dining.)


And this slump has been particularly hard because it’s compounded by the fact that I do have a LOT of things I want to share. If we’ve bumped into each other at the store or you sit near me at work you already know everything that’s going on. In fact you’re probably tired of hearing about it.

The news just isn’t ready for the interwebs. But soon it will be. And I’m starting to cook new meals again. And I just wanted to let you know that I’ll be back in full force again. Soon.

Heather – I totally hear you. It seems like a couple times a year I hit a lull where I need to take a step back. I think you’re right – it’s definitely just part of the cycle, but it seems you’re usually rewarded at the end with a burst of creativity. Looking forward to the news! Oh, AND, I recognize that style dinner oh-so-well. Coffee table small bites dinners are a regular around these parts!

Thanks Jess. It’s good to know that another food blogger has the same ‘cycle’ :)
Snack meals are the very best!

Thanks :) We thinks she’s around 5. We got her from the Great Dane rescue in Kansas City so we’re not 100% sure.

OK, long comment ahead…
Mojo is completely sweet – great shot! Trade you for three cats…
The Slump is part of the cycle – food blogger, other kind of blogger, or regular person in everyday life. No fears. As you said, part of the cycle.
Happy Birthdays to you and Hubster!
Love your snack meal spread – loved that idea the first time I saw it here and we’ve started having them. Great for nights when we all want something different, when we aren’t really in the mood for a full-on meal, and if we have a few things we want to try for the first time.
Can’t wait to hear your news!

Lol! Thanks! Mojo is awesome. No cats for us. Hubster is allergic.
Very true. Thanks for the support :)
Snack meal is seriously one of my favorites. I’m glad it’s becoming a tradition at your house.
ETA for the news is next Thursday. I’ll take all positive vibes and crossed fingers :)
