I have a cookbook review that is long overdue, which I’ll be posting in the next week or so.
In other news, I think that I will no longer be updating swell after that. I feel like there have been many shifts and changes in my life, and I no longer have the passion for blogging that I once did. Part of that is feeling a little burnt out on cooking and baking (because it’s what I do for work), part of it is feeling like I don’t have the time and energy to dedicate to make this blog what I wanted it to be, and part of it is feeling like I’ve slowly pigeon-holed myself into a recipe blog that feels pretty constraining and creatively oppressive. I don’t think, either, that I have the energy to try and reformat and reorganize this blog to change that. It seems like every post lately has begun with an apology about not blogging for so long (which is both embarrassing and annoying for me), and it finally seems like time to bite the bullet and let go.
“Goodbye posts” are kind of bittersweet, but I’d rather have someone come out and say they’re leaving, rather than just disappearing and wondering if they’re okay. I am okay, really. And I still read other people’s blogs daily, even if I don’t comment!
So look for a cookbook review coming up (it’s a good one), and know that I’m still around in other ways if you need to contact me or hear about my little bursts of gastronomic delight (still pretty Twitter-y on occasion; you can follow @swellveganblog).
