Well folks, almost a year has passed since I started this little blog and I’m so proud of what it’s become. Unfortunately what’s it’s become is a beast and I can no longer keep up with it. Try as I might, I constantly feel like I’m forgetting something I ate, something I need to try to cook, or some beer I drank.

I’ve become consumed with website stats and twitter followers, which is…unpleasant to say the least. Of course the more I post, the more hits I get, but time limited and I’ve been at a loss as to what I need to do to maximize my time and make sure that I’m giving you quality reads.

In December I thought about my options, made some plans and then my New Year efforts were thwarted by a debilitating sinus infection that’s had me on the couch for the past week barely unable to move. I realized then and still now (seriously, still sick) that there are other things my energy and time should probably go towards.


But the thought of giving everything up completely is as unpleasant as worrying about twitter followers, so, for the time being, I’m moving this operation over to tumblr.

I’m excited about the opportunities tumblr will give me. I think it will help me post more frequently, under less pressure and incorporate a few things I didn’t think were quite appropriate for this forum. (You know, PORN.)

I’m planning for fewer recipes, (I’m finding myself cooking less but when I do, things are more complicated) more pictures and more prose writing about daily life and things. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens. I will probably be back here eventually but for now, I would love it if you joined me.

You should be proud. Here’s to happy tumblr-ing in the new year! I hope you’re back on your feet real soon.

Sad to see you go. I loved reading your posts. I guess now I’ll have to listen to you in person. Good luck on the other side, but keep on writing!
