Early last spring, working my way through my daily line-up of food blogs, a post by Joy the Baker caused me to pause in question. Her words were simple enough, alerting her faithful fan base she updated the ‘About’ section on her sweet blog.
At that point, I was just becoming serious about the process of blogging. I assumed my only readers were family members, so I could not imagine writing anything unknown in my own ‘About’ section. At the off-chance someone unrelated stumbled across my blog, I composed a few paragraphs, and returned to baking cookies.
Like Joy, when I discover a new blog, I also instinctively want to know more about the author. Where in this big world are they writing their posts? How did they develop an interest in food? What do they look like? I want to feel as though I know, or at least share some connection, with the person behind the words and the camera.
That said, I recently realized my own ‘About’ section no longer adequately described either me or my adventures in the kitchen. It was silly to think these pages are set in stone - instead they should evolve, reflecting progress in the author’s life.
So if you want to know a bit more about me, here I am, as of today. And as my future and path continue to unfold, I will be sure to keep you updated. In the meantime, feel free to continue sending me your questions, food related or otherwise.
