You selected pasta because that is what sounded good and not because you hadn't had a creative pasta dish, in a long while or because you had to make as dish for the cooking group you belong to. You didn't take notes as you cooked so you had the exact amount of ingredients and you stretched your mind to see what spice, you could add, to make it even more interesting.
Gee, you didn't even think of a quaint or unique name to give it so it would grab the attention of other food bloggers. Oh my, you didn't have your camera on hand to take photos and then tell everyone to wait while you took a plethora of photos from different angles and in varied lighting. No, you just ate the food and enjoyed it.
I bet, after dinner, you did not run to the computer to type up the recipe and add photos in order to share with all your fellow foodies. Maybe, you picked up a good cook and sat down and read it or called a friend and chatted. Could this have been your life?
It was mine and it has changed since I began blogging. There is no doubt, we eat better and we eat a variety of foods, some I had never heard of, before blogging. I enjoy my blogs and my photos, while still not particularly good are much better than when I began to share with all of you. Side benefits come with this package.
The question is, "Would I go back to my old world, the one where food was just part of life and not a major player?" I wouldn't dream of it, even though, it would mean, I had more free time and I wasn't thinking of what to do with the newest vegetable, in my vocabulary. There is one thing that has stayed the same. I still believe we do not live to eat but we do Eat to Live. If I lose sight of that, I stop blogging.
Have you changed your life since beginning blogging. Let us know how.
