When I began posting recipes regularly in 2011, I was pleasantly surprised when they began getting so many regular hits and lovely comments. I’ve been blogging for years with little or no traffic and have been very happy to just use this blog as a personal record/diary as our kids have grown and our lives have changed over the past 5 and a half years. When I began this blog we had 3 very young children and I was a baby myself. I’ve documented birthdays, financial struggles, health problems, a downward spiral into depression and that slow steady climb up out of it. Our children have grown and changed and we dragged ourselves out of financial and emotional stagnation and moved across the world to the U.K all the while as I plodded along sharing our lives on this blog.
People dropping in and actually wanting to read about my cooking adventures and trying the recipes themselves has been so rewarding! I’ve decided my next step should be to split my blog into two, a personal blog and food/cooking blog. This blog will be my cooking blog and Chaotically Rambling will now be my personal blog. If you’re following this blog for the food, recipes and all things domestic then you’re in the right place. If you do enjoy hearing about the kids, my self-reflection, weight loss struggles and seeing photos of us out and about in London and abroad then please pop over to my personal blog and subscribe to the posts over there too.
Hopefully this blog will become a bit more focused and in 2012 I’m hoping to increase from one weekly recipe to two and have some sort of schedule going on. I’ll post more on that later. This blog is starting to look a little tired too so I’ll hopefully get working on a revamp soon too.
Thank you so much for all your support my lovely, lovely readers…it means the world to me that you take the time to read my blog and a bit of extra love to my wonderful regular commenters who give me the oomph to keep plodding on!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas (the extra 2kg’s I’m carrying around is a testament to how much we enjoyed our’s) and Happy New Year’s for tonight!
