Oh my blog!

Hello again!

This site started off as a blog and well, it’s going to be a blog again……sort of.  I’m in the process of organizing a lot of different ideas about how I want my next steps to be so I just wanted to give you a little insight as to how this is all going to go down.

Like I said, originally this was a cooking blog.  It was a place where I posted pictures of what I was making, thinking, and progress as I worked my way from being an at-home cook to culinary school to professional chef.   I think I’m in a good spot now to talk about some new things that are on the way and ways I’m going to be able to do a brain dump of the past few years while giving you a chance to come along for the ride!

One of the big reasons I got away from blogging is that I’m a terrible writer and I became super self conscious of it.  Additionally, my pictures and food styling while I was in my zone on here (my first year I had 1500 posts….) were absolutely terrible.  I don’t know why I decided to do a blog in the first place but I wanted to track my own progress and look back at my own food that I did and hate it.  I always wanted to see progress.

So here we are.

I’m still a terrible writer, my pictures are a lot nicer, and my food styling is pretty decent.  I would say that I’m in a lot better position to actually blog but I’m not going to do certain things.

#1 Be fussy or pretentious about it.
#2 I am going to stay positive on here so you’ll see a lot of exclamation points and whatnot because cooking genuinely excites me and if you talk to me in person you can see it (more on seeing that in another blog).
#3 I hope to not have this go over anyone’s head, in regards to the cooking you’re going to see soon that I will post on here.  If it does just let me know and I’ll figure out a way to communicate better!

How did I get in list mode?

Ok, so I’m in the middle of game planning and one of the first things I’m going to do is revisit some of my initial creations on the blog that were absolutely awful so look out for that very soon!

I am forcing myself to post every day in hopes that finally my writing will improve and it won’t read like I’m twelve years old. Practice!

Not sure where I’m going with this post now but that’s ok.  I’ll think of something for tomorrow!

It’s that easy! (exclamation points)

See you tomorrow,

Eric

    Hi Erik.. I don’t know if you come by my fb site or not. But I kinda do a blog on there. I tried blogging on another site, and failed horribly… So when I feel the want. I tell a story and then I also am on a Blogging site Used to be Yahoo 360 then that went down the tubes and we all went to Multiply and that after awhile did the same. So there a lot of us just on Facebook. though there is a group on there I leave Story Time on.

    Seems lots of people like reading my stories. Which is great. They all get to asking me when I will be telling another one.lol.. So I just write like I am talking to them. Like I am talking to a friend. And for me that seems to work.
