Today marks my 3 year blogoversary. I’d like to think I grew, a lot, especially in those first two years. But this past year has been a bit turbulent. When I first started blogging, I saw it as an opportunity to find my place in the world, to have a voice. I loved creating and toying with news recipes then sharing it with all of you and listening to your feedback, praise and advice.
But lately it’s become a chore. I feel obligated to post, to not leave you stranded, but the more I knew I had to write, the less desire I had to do so. I know the shift has been reflected in my writing too. Before I looked forward to painting a pictured and sharing a story. These days, getting the recipe in print seems challenging enough. So I’ve made a decision. I’m going on hiatus.
Now, wait just a minute. This is not the end of Brooklyn Locavore. That I can promise you. I’m not sure how long this break will be–the summer, the rest of the year, maybe until next spring–but I will be back. My hope is that when I return, it will be with rejuvenation, with a new focus and fresh perspective.
So I thank you for these past three years and promise I will return. In the meantime, please seek me out on Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram (yes, I bit the bullet and created an Instagram account). Good bye for now. I leave you with my 10 favorite recipes on this blog of all time. Enjoy!
