Today is my blogiversary! It has been a great year and I love writing my blog.

I started this blog because a long-term work contract had come to an end and I still wanted to have something to focus on that would fit in with being a full-time mum.  I have always wanted to write a recipe book and I originally thought that was what I would focus on, but I realised that I had no idea how to go about doing such a thing. Then I thought about blogging and realised that this was something I could do and it would mean that I shared my recipes with the world too.

When I started I had no idea that it would give me as much pleasure as it does. I had no idea that I would make so many new friends.  I hadn’t delved into the world of food blogging before I started this, but I now spend hours poring over other food blogs and it’s wonderful to be invited into other people’s kitchens and lives.

It has also made me more creative in the kitchen, trying new foods and new ways of cooking – you learn a lot from other people’s blogs!  I still sometimes cook the same old thing for tea, but not quite as often as before.

The only downside that I can find to this lark though is that it has encouraged me to bake more, and then, of course, to eat the result.  The bathroom scales have been shoved out of sight and I really need to devote more time to exercise. Oh well, you can’t have it all ways.

So, this is just to say thank you to everyone who reads my blog and to say here’s to another year’s blogging.

  1. Happy Blogiversary and wishing you many many many more years ahead. You never know, you may even start writing your book, which will compliment your blog even further!
    Bathroom scale, what’s that? I don’t even have one in the house anymore. I kept telling myself it wasn’t calibrated properly, so it had to go!
    Looking forward to your next year of posts!

  10. Congratulations Kath and happy blogiversary for yesterday. I’m so glad you decided to start this up, I love your blog and would miss it sadly if you stopped. Although the recipe book idea sounds a good one too. Look forward to your 2nd year – and a book?

  11. I don’t know how I missed this. Sorry.

    Happy Belated Blogiversary, Kath.
    Like you I too find other fellow blogs rather inspirational and encouraging in a good way.

    Yes starting a food blog adds inches to your waistline too.

    It is lovely, all the connections and ideas spread in the name of good food.
