What exactly is this blog about? I can see more than a few of you who've been with me for the last several years scratching your heads and thinking, "Well Mags, we really have been your regulars because we're avid food blog readers and we like your recipes." A couple of you will admit to enjoying my warped sense of humor and I think the rest of you just stop by to see what I'm up to.
This blog never started out to be a cooking/food blog. It was really meant to be more of a journal of my life after turning 50. I started with random posts about moving out of state, my home and being newly retired, and then eventually found out that I love to cook (now that I have time!) It was during that newfound love of cooking era that I started getting interested in photography and in building my base of readers. I'm quite proud of how far I've come in the blogging world, but the thanks for that success belongs to you, my followers, for regularly checking out what I'm cooking up in my cauldron.
Where am I going with this? I'm going back to the beginning folks. I'm returning to my real reason for blogging, which is journaling about whatever it is I happen to be feeling for the day. Perhaps something has tickled me on youtube. Maybe I've got some family photos I wish to make available for family and friends. It could be that I just need to bitch about a doctor's appointment or my insurance company who won't pay for one of my medications.
Bottom line. This is no longer strictly a food/recipe blog. It is MY blog to heal MY life at a time when I need some serious healing. I apologize to everyone who comes here to find new and exciting recipes (especially to thisoldbroad) but as of this point in my life, I've just lost the desire to return to that arena. Someday perhaps. Or maybe I'll throw a recipe in here and there just for my own future reference.
I won't hold it against any of you who decide to drop from my regular reading list. There's WAY too much good food out there to waste any more of your time looking here.
Thank you again for your past support. I really have appreciated your love and prayers.
