One of the things I did notice was my posts were a lot longer and full of more content. Granted, I had a little more time on my hands to write back then, but still...I really put a lot of thought into what I wanted to write each day. Not that I don't put thought into my posts now, mind you, but a lot of times I find myself just spitting out a random post here and there. And when I first started blogging I tended to write on specific topics or thoughts I had. I remember writing down ideas that came to my mind at random times so I could go back to them. I'd like to get back to that.
Granted, I know things change, and as time goes by, your focus changes, as well. My focus isn't the same as it was back in 2010, and it sure won't be the same as it is now two years from now. I do hope that two years from now I'll still be writing this blog, but who knows what will inspire my posts at that time? Who knows where I'll be?
So this is a goal of mine with this blog is to get back to writing. Creative writing, that is. I want to get back to posts with substance, posts of which I can be proud. I don't think it'll be a goal I can accomplish on a daily basis, but I sure would like to try.
However, my first post is hilarious. I got some crazy idea to make this healthy recipe for brownies from a cookbook my MIL gave me. The recipe called for using black beans. She saw it on Good Morning America, and the hosts who ate the brownies swore they couldn't taste the beans. Well, they were big fat liars. Because the brownies tasted like black beans. And were gross looking. Check it out.
Here's to another year of blogging! Thanks for being there for the ride! I always love my readers and those who leave comments!
