I know, I know. It looks as though I have just abandoned this blog and left it to rot and mold like my 4th grade science project that I stuffed under my bed. It's been so long since I posted (and regularly at that) that even creating a 'new post' right now has me a bit out of my element. But I haven't said goodbye to my blogging ways. I have an explanation, a grand one at that.
Last November (I posted about it HERE), I noticed that almost my entire catalog of blogs had become pictureless [see also: 'Fatal Blogging Error']. For a lot of 2010-2012, pictures had completely disappeared from my posts and the entire formatting of each post had been altered. That is well over 350+ posts of mine that had become complete fragments of what I had spent so much time creating.

I tried to keep posting normally while fixing this problem, but a couple months ago, enough just became enough. I had no time to prepare a new post, read other blogs AND fix the hundreds of posts of mine that needed attention (if you don't blog, you have no idea how long this self-imposed task takes). I have to work all day, cook dinner, work out, yada, yada, yada [insert more boring grown-up stuff]: something had to *#@%ing give and unfortunately, that 'something' had to be my hobby. Plus, it was summer. So, I also needed to factor in some evenings in the park and long walks in the morning with the sun on my skin- a rare treat in the Pacific Northwest.
So instead of creating new posts, I have been slowly but steadily putting all of my old posts back together. I stopped reading blogs and I stopped writing blogs in order to focus on this incredibly time-consuming and frustrating task. And I'm almost done. I have about 5 months worth of posts to recreate (sounds like a lot but I started with over 30!). And with the colder weather coming in, I'm inside a lot more tearing through them at a faster rate.
So, in conclusion: I will be back. So soon. Oh, so soon. And I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to have all of this behind me and relish again in the pointless task of hobby blogging and writing about what I like to eat: OH-EM-GEE, I CAN'T WAIT.
