The Origins of My Blog

I started blogging about 1 year ago. At the time, the blog was called "My Dumb Blog". I am not a talented writer and I just posted things here and there. I didn't tell anyone about the blog and I really didn't want anyone to read it. I didn't know anything about food blogs and I had never taken pictures of my food before. My blog had no direction.

Then I found a food blog. Then another, and another. This was pretty cool! These talented people take really nice pictures of their food. Not that I could do it, but thats nice that they do. So I would read and enjoy.

One day, a few weeks ago, I made a cake. I took a picture. It was ok. Nothing special. I posted it on my family's message board for fun. A few days later, I took another picture of another cake. It turned out sort of nice. Then I took another picture, and another. And, to my HUGE suprise, the pictures weren't half bad!

I guess I should have started a new blog, but I started adding these food entries to my old blog. Then I decided that I didn't want anyone reading my old entries, so I resaved them all as drafts. But they were still listed in the sidebar! Sigh. Whatever. I have now reposted them and my year's worth of posts are there for you to enjoy. Read them if you want. I don't care. I'm not a talented writer.

Knock yourself out.

I was very suprised to find that Just Hungry had linked to my sticky bun page! Too Cool!

Thanks for checking out my blog!
