Gypsy World Spice Cafe Blogiversary!

Wow!  I absolutely cannot believe that it has been one year since my first post.  

I can still remember that feeling of publishing my first article,  Seeking Sumac.   It was exciting and scary at the same time.  Putting myself “out there” on the world-wide web…  Would people read my spice articles?  What would they think?  People wonder why I blog (or wonder how I have time to do this)… 

Time?  First and foremost, I am blessed to have supportive family and friends (that enjoy eating what I make).  

I plan the family meals around the spices that I plan to feature.  My sons often write down what I’m doing and help stage the pictures (we’ve gotten better at that…).   I also let them help in some of the decisions…  They love it!  They are very opinionated (hmm… wonder where they get that from? lol). 

I think if you are passionate about something, you make the time.  It might mean you have to get up earlier or stay up later… There is something to be said about how you feel when you achieve your goals.

Why Blog?  I started blogging to learn more.  I’ve learned a lot about designing my blog site and more about spices.  (You may have noticed the new landing page and drop down menus).

This year has been great!   Enjoy!
