I have not done a good job maintaining my blog. That’s stating the obvious, I know, but I feel like I need to explain why. It’s not that I haven’t been doing anything. Quite the contrary, in fact, because I’ve been rather busy. Maybe not so much with cake decorating classes and birthday parties, although there have been a few here and there, and while it’s been ages since I shared a recipe, I have been making stuff. If you follow me on Tumblr or Instagram you’ve seen what I get up to when I don’t have time to do a full blog post about it, like the new gluten-free pancake and waffle mix I tried and pictures of some new cake decorating tools Wilton sent me.
I’m anxiously waiting for my new Chromebook to make its way home to me. It’s supposed to arrive some time today, and I seriously hope it does. I made the decision to buy one this past Tuesday, and silly, naive me thought it would be as simple as walking into Best Buy and picking one up. Ha! I posted the whole story on Tumblr, but basically I ended up having to order my Chromebook online. Which, of course, means waiting for delivery.
I finally bit the bullet and moved my cake blog over to self-hosted WordPress. I’m not one to willingly work outside my comfort zone, and I dreaded having to learn a new platform, but after many months of thinking about making the switch, I realized a couple of weeks ago that I was ready. Plus, I finally had enough money in Paypal to fund the hosting and all that.
Oh, dear. I haven’t been very at all diligent about posting regularly. October was a busy month, and I didn’t always have time or–even remember–to take pictures of the recipes made and treats decorated. But it’s been exciting, and I have a lot of fun stuff going on!
I honestly meant to post a “Should’ve Done Sunday” yesterday, but I found myself vacuuming the house instead. There was also a bit of laundry that needed doing, and some other random chores that I couldn’t put off any longer. But at least the weather was gorgeous, and it was slightly cooler less sweltering yesterday with a nice breeze, so I even managed to open a window or two and let the house air out a bit. I’m ready for autumn.
