Let's Chat

I had an epiphany this weekend. I realized in the midst of all the websites I contribute to along with my day job that I've been lagging on the site that allowed me to start writing for some of my favorite websites. I started this blog one day at a job I really despised. I was still pretty fresh out of college and was still trying to get a footing for this real world situation. 

Outside the college bubble. Outside the safety of the friends I spent an amazing four years with in the confines of our little town of Davis. Thrown back into my hometown with all my friends gone left only with the remnants of "congratulations grad" cards and the pressure to get a grown up job. After being exposed to a brand new way of food in college I found myself totally photo spamming all my meals on Facebook. After having countless friends complain to me that I was making them hungry with my delicious photos I figured, "Hey! Why not start a food blog?!" So that's what I did and it became something much more than I ever thought it would be. 
This little food blog gave me an outlet to talk about my meals and ramble on about how much I love tea and what not. Then my friends started reading it, then I found wonderful groups of blogger friends to connect with and swap urls with and now here I am. Because of this site I am now writing for Cupcakes Take The Cake and Foodbeast while also running Chronicles of a Foodie, baking for Smashbakes in my spare time (I know right, what spare time), blending up band fandom aka Bandom based teas for fun with a friend, oh and did I mention trying to co-found a nerd girl website with another pal. Phew. So as you can imagine, things are getting pretty crazy over here. I probably haven't mentioned it but I have one of those personalities where I have to stay busy, I'm not sure why I've just always kind of been like that, but on the flip side I get my lazy days. It happens to the best of us.

Anyway, getting back to the point of this post, I just wanted to kind of talk to you my wonderful readers and explain why things might be slower than usual...if you couldn't tell this is what happens when you're 24 and have a crazy passion for food, nerdy things, baking, writing and can't possibly choose just one. Here's to keeping on with the dream of turning these loves of mine into a career... <3

Taking the time to proofread your work is also a good idea. The word is separate not seperate. I recently read a review on a food blog where the author used the words "is are" to describe a punch. My guess is that she meant to figure out which form of the verb to use and accidentally left both.
