How Not To Succeed With A Food Blog

  • Get a little bit busy at work, but assume that the next month you’ll get back to posting.
  • Take a business trip, figure you’ll start posting again after you return to town.
  • Once home, discover you’re pregnant.
  • Endure horrifically bad morning sickness. All day, every day, for all of the first and virtually all of the second trimesters. Bad enough that you can’t even acknowledge that you have a blog that mentions food, because the mere thought of it causes retching.
  • Spend the third trimester trying to catch up on everything that got ignored earlier, and get prepared for what’s soon to arrive.
  • Bedrest. Baby. Brief NICU stay. Lengthy recovery (of mom, not baby)
  • Finally wake up one day and realize that the baby’s three months old, and this blog’s been ignored for over a year. Perhaps it’s time to resurrect it.

I have no idea how other pregnant food bloggers managed it. I literally could not even look at the blog, and could barely think about it for close to six months.

But I’m going to give it a shot at getting back into this.
