I haven't had any motivation or desire to really work on posts. I've come up with a couple reasons for my lack of motivation. One, I think I made this blog a chore or a job for myself. I scheduled exactly when I should put up posts and was scheduling in time to sit and force myself to improve this blog. Well, at first that worked for like 2 weeks and then I think I got burned out. I was like why the heck am I doing that to myself. Secondly, this clinical rotation has me only cooking two nights of the week. Now, trust me I have thoroughly been enjoying it, but at the same time I'm not being all that motivated to cook. Hence, the lack of posts on here in general.
In other words, I've pretty much lost my mojo for this blog. I'm slowly starting to find it again and this clinical rotation will be up in about two weeks. Thus, I will start cooking more and hopefully I'll have more motivation to work on this blog.
I was on Pinterest looking for motivational quotes and I found this one by Henry Ford. I really like it because even if we fail in life, we should always try again, but with more insight. So at least this time when I start blogging I know not to get carried away with the schedules and be more flexible.
I don't need this blog to be a job, but instead more of a hobby. I started this blog in order to help people realize that cooking is not that hard. I want people to actually be able to use their kitchens even if it's only once a week. I don't expect people to fall in love with cooking, but maybe even just like to do it every once in awhile.
I will be making some changes around here. I will no longer be posting Friday First Impressions. These posts didn't seem to get a lot of traffic and I really didn't receive much feedback. Instead, every time I try a new recipe I'll be posting a picture on the Facebook page with a link to the recipe. If you haven't already liked the Facebook page, just click that link and go like it! I will still be doing Menu Plan Monday and posting step-by-step recipe posts.
If you have any questions about cooking, ask away in the comments or send me an email! I will gladly answer any of them. Also if you have any recipes you would like me to play around with or make a post, you can send those my way as well. If you have any suggestions as far as what I should post on here, just let me know. I want to be more interactive with my audience as well so let me know what ideas, opinions, thoughts, or questions you have!
Thanks for reading my ramble on my lack of motivation! Hopefully I'll get my cooking mojo back!
