Hi friends! So, I thought I’d stop and let you all know what I have planned and what I’m considering for the blog, and sort of update you all on life in the process.
As some of you may know, I used to be really into baking. I wanted to have a my own “cupcakery” and even enrolled in culinary at the community college in this area. In fact, it’s where my blog name came from. My mom used to call me Cupcake and even came up with the name for this blog when I told her I wanted to get away from just plus size fashion. Anyway, I got away from it for a few years, because I have so many other interests and new things I wanted to try, but I’m back to baking. I’m realizing how happy it makes me, how much it relaxes me, and honestly, how naturally it comes to me. And Shane enjoys the benefits, too.
My question to you is, would anyone be interested in baking posts? Maybe some recipe posts with my notes and how I made things work for me? With nice pictures, of course. Let me know, because it’s definitely something I’d be interested in.
I have to say, I do feel a bit bad for Shane sometimes, because as I’ve bounced around from hobby to hobby so often in the seven years we’ve been together and we I decide I want to make a career out of it, and then I scrap that idea and decide I want to do something else. And you know what? He’s been so supportive of it all no matter what. He never makes me feel bad about jumping back and forth, and he’s always quick to help in whatever way I need. I will say, though, that my getting back into baking has been his favorite so far, as he greatly benefits. 😊
Finally, regarding baking, I thought I’d do some baking favorites and baking wish list posts here soon, too. I think it would be fun to get input about peoples’ favorite products and recipes and share techniques and tips, so keep an eye out for those posts.
I also have big plans for my craft room (another thing for which I’m immensely grateful for Shane’s support)! I wanted to do an update post, but if I’m being honest, it looks pretty much exactly how it did a year ago when I last did an update. I’m in desperate need of storage, and I’ve got some plans for it, so instead of taking a panoramic shot that’s almost identical to last year’s, I think I’m just going to do a video update on my plans, and then maybe a wish list post. Watch for those, too, if that kind of stuff interests you.
Also, I’m not sure if any of my long-time readers have really noticed, but I’ve been doing posts on a schedule now. It’s a little overwhelming sometimes trying to think of good content, but I feel like it holds me accountable for getting posts up and staying consistent every week. Plus, I’ve noticed a nice bump in my follower count recently, so that’s always a bonus. But honestly, that just gives me more motivation to put out stuff people want to read, and do it regularly, so thank you and hello to my new followers, and thanks for sticking around to my old ones.
That’s pretty much it right now. If you have a topic you think I should cover, I’m always up for suggestions. Also, let me know if you’re interested in baking/recipe posts. I need to work on my food photography skills, but I’ll learn. 😉
