Thanks for stopping by to help celebrate strawberryplum’s 1 month anniversary! I know a month is not long in the world of food blogging but in just a month I’ve learned an awful lot and I am anxious to continue sharing my cooking adventures and recipes. That’s worthy of a little celebration, wouldn’t you say?
Here’s a run-down of the top 10 most valuable lessons I’ve learned while blogging.
+ How to upload pictures without breaking the computer (Sorry, sweetie, I swear those days are behind us)
+ How to spell carAmelize (So tempting to leave out that second a)
+ What on earth a widget is (They’re these handy little apps you download to help organize the blog and hopefully make it easier for you to navigate)
+ That you really shouldn’t try to take pictures of food if you don’t have much time (Sorry again, sweetheart. Have I told you how nice you look today?)
+ Blogging about cooking and eating takes waaaaaay more time than the actual cooking and eating
+ “Just Enough” is not a real measurement and people will never bother with my recipes if I continuously call for pinches, bits, glugs, and splashes
+ How to turn certain phrases into links to lead readers around my blog and beyond
+ Writing can be really fun when you aren’t doing it for a professor or boss
+ Writing can be really difficult sometimes (Like when you’re a career server and haven’t written more than a casual email in the five years since you’ve been out of school…)
+ Family, friends, and Internet acquaintances are more encouraging and supportive than I ever thought possible (Thanks for the comments- I love reading them and knowing you’re out there!)
That’s enough to celebrate. I’ll grab the bubbly. Thanks for being here, for your advice, your encouragement. Here’s to 1 month and to many more. See you soon!
