I have a confession to make: I really suck as a food blogger.
I mean, sure, I can come up with fairly interesting recipes and post them here on a regular basis. I’m also capable of taking somewhat decent pictures in an effort to portray said recipes under their best light.
So basically, I know how to write and publish a post… Woopty Doo!
But that’s about where it ends.
I am absolutely useless when it comes to all the technical “behind the scene” stuff.
After a couple of years of playing it by ear, I sort of feel like this place has become a complete mess and I have no idea how to clean it up efficiently. I now REALLY need to start reading up on the subject; there’s like a million things that I HAVE to learn and I just can’t put it off no more. But sometimes, I feel like the task at hand is so overwhelming, I almost feel like plain giving up on the whole thing.
The problem is I simply don’t have the patience for learning all this. It’s all like gibberish to me and my not catching any of it makes me feel like I’m a complete ignorant.
To be honest, I don’t have much interest for it either. I wish I could just hire someone to do it for me. Perhaps it’s because I’m afraid. I’m afraid that if I dare touch the slightest little thing, the whole site will come crumbling down on me.
Or plain cease functioning.
Or worse… vanish into thin air!
Would you believe me if I told you that I wouldn’t even know how to back-up my own blog? Seriously! I’ve never, not once, performed a back-up of my site. I imagine that this is being done automatically, but I can’t even be sure of it.
Yeah! It’s that bad! Scary, I know.
I think I need some serious help, and SOON. Guess I’m gonna have to spend a little bit less time blogging and more time learning how to blog.
And just to help matters, I feel like I’m way behind on everything…
Emails seem to be piling up in my inbox, I can’t keep up anymore (sorry to all of you who are waiting for an answer on my part… I’m trying my best to get back to you, I swear!)
Seriously, I’m so behind, I’m not even done sharing all of my Easter recipes.
I think I might have a little too much on my plate…
So anyway, enough jabbering for tonight; Thanks for listening, though. I feel much better just having talked about it.
But let’s get on with the foods, shall we?
After all, this post was supposed to be about a Spicy Apple Roasted Turkey, was it not?
And about that, I need to apologize for the poor quality of the pictures that I’m sharing with you today…
As you can see, my guests had already arrived by the time I got ready to shoot and I felt it was sort of rude to be snapping away at my food while they were actually eagerly waiting to regale on it.
So I cut the photo session
a little way short and kept things to a bare minimum…
Doesn’t mean that the food wasn’t good though.
It sure got my daughter’s seal of approval!
And I honestly think that her thumbs spoke for the rest of us…
I don’t think I need to add anything here.
Tasha said it all!
