My lunch today included mostly refrigerator items. 🙂
I finally got all of my fresh veggies back in my fridge at home. I missed having so many fresh items. I always take for granted all of the zillion of things I store in my fridge. Never again will I make that mistake. 🙂
My HUMONGOUS salad contained:
- Feta Cheese
- Black Beans
- Pumpkin Seeds
It was sooo good and very refreshing from the heated up left overs I have been surviving off of.
With my salad I also had my last VeggieGirl Pistachio-Pear-Ginger Blondie.
It was just as great as my previous ones. Thank you again VeggieGirl for the wonderful treats. 🙂
Before a very long meeting I had this morning I snacked on the last of my bag of Pumpkin Spice Trail Mix.
There was a little more then a 1/4 cup left, but it was mostly raisins and I usually avoid the raisins so I ended up having less then a 1/4 cup total. It wasn’t very filling which explains the gigantic salad I had for lunch. 🙂
I see quite a few of you clicked through to my old blog yesterday. I have never seen a more clicked on link on here before. It was a little surreal. A couple of you were asking why I stuck with blogging this time and I think it has more to do with the love of the community I feel now. You guys are awesome.
Caitlin and Jenna were truly the ones who encouraged me to start this blog way back after I first met them face to face in September. I had been a lurker, so when I moved down to Orlando I was brave enough to strike up a meet up with Caitlin and our friendship grew from there. I met Jenna a week later. I never told them about my previous blogging attempt, so when Jenna suggested I created my own the idea started brewing inside of me again.
When I started before I was still very new reading food blogs and was not sure what made a great food. This time around I had been reading them for months and knew what could make or break a blog. So I threw some ideas in my head and combined all of the aspects I liked from other blogs and made one of my own. It helped having Caitlin and Jenna as friends so I knew I had at least two readers and it kind of grew from there.
I’m still amazed how many hits I get on here a day and how many wonderful readers I have. Thanks to my blog I have also discovered new blogs with some truly inspiring stories. I have also met a ton of great people, both in the blog world and in real life.
I am so happy I stuck with blogging this time around and it truly is thanks to you guys!
Now you’ve heard my ‘How I Became a Blogger Story’ what’s yours? What was the thing that made you start up a food blog and what makes you stick with it? Or if you’re solely a reader what keeps you coming back? Out of curiosity why do you keep reading my blog particularly? I’m just curious. 🙂
