I've been a total slacker and I'm really, really, really sorry! I've got (seriously!) 3 recipe posts lined up in my drafts folder that I just haven't been motivated to get my ass in gear and finish. I never wanted to be one of those bloggers that only posts to say how horrible they feel for not posting more often, but... yeah.
I'm a bit of a chronic procrastinator with a strong perfectionist streak. I'll have a great idea, and I'll start something, but then I'll think, "Hmmm... this is good, but I could make it BETTER!" But then I'll be a little bit unsure of how to actually make it better, and I'll delay my editing/ improvements, hoping for inspiration. And the longer I drag it out, the better I feel the end product needs to be in order to justify the delay, and the draft folder ends up making me feel anxious and guilty every time I see it, like a wilting and neglected houseplant.
Anyhow, I've done all my Christmas shopping, work is lighter this week, and I'm all out of excuses. I want to try to post all three of my recipes at some point this week. And then next week, hopefully, I will be an Actual Blogging Dynamo and post a few humorous pictures from my Collection O' Cookbooks. That's the plan.
For those of you that have been patient enough to keep checking in, in spite of my various neuroses, thank you. I'm trying to improve.
PS- The very observant among you may notice I've been tinkering with some of the fonts and layouts. (You know, instead of actually completing a post.) What do you think?
