I could teach Hamlet about procrastination. I have toyed with the idea of blogging for a long time now but have managed to successfully avoid actually doing it!
I have gone to a WordPress camp with Margaret from A Year in Redwood to find out what was involved – I felt I had wandered into a strange country – without an interpreter!
I have joined the Irish Food Bloggers Associationwith all good intentions.
I have attended two Food Blogging Photography workshops – and I still use my i-phone!
I have even been at a food bloggers lunch hosted by the lovely Joanna from Smorgasblog.
So this is it – I’m taking the plunge! The catalyst – peer pressure fromMammy’s Kitchen, Nessa’s Family Kitchen and Paula’s Sweet Treats on the train to the Irish Food Pix event last Friday (oh and a little ‘subtle’ encoragement from The Katz Miaow, Wise Words & Like Mam Used To Bake among others on Twitter!)
What to write about – well that surely requires more procrastination – I could:
- try recipes from my large collection of cookbooks
- talk about my cookery classes
- write about my catering business
- justify dining out just so I can blog about it
- village life
