It’s been a long time since I did any personal writing – almost four years, according to my last post. Turns out that when writing is a large part of your professional life, you don’t make time to do it in your personal life. At least that’s how it’s worked out for me.
Taking this into consideration, for 2018 this blog has three purposes.
First, I’ve found myself in a bit of a rut with cooking. It’s something I absolutely love to do, but I’ve been lacking in imagination for the last little while. As such, I plan to make one new recipe a week in 2018.
Second, I will document these recipes here so that I keep track of everything I’ve made. I am notorious for making something tasty and then being unable to find the rabbit hole back through the internet to the recipe I used, or I will frankenstein a number of similar recipes together to make a version of something that I think will work best, and then never write down the details.
Finally, by committing to writing about my experiments each week, I will produce 52 pieces of content I wouldn’t have otherwise created. I feel like I’ve lost my voice through years of brand and professional writing, and am hoping to get the Flooziemagoo spark back.
Additionally, during 2018 I am training to get my private pilot’s license and will run the NYC marathon. I also snowboard and tap dance (badly) and see a lot of live music, so those things may sneak in too. I plan for this blog to be primarily about food, but I reserve the right for that to change at any moment. Dig in!
(And if you are a friend who lives in Seattle, invite yourself over for dinner already, why don’t you? Or drop hints in conversation – I’m fairly perceptive/may force food on you)
