This morning as I sat at my desk to begin my first day as full-time writer/editor for writes4food, I opened my notebook to jot down a gameplan for the week. I turned to a random page and found notes that I’d made several months ago as I began making serious plans to take this leap. I wish I’d dated the page where I made this list:
What is writes4food about?
- eating simply
- eating locally
- eating seasonally
- fun and passion
- a non-expert expert
- friendly and approachable
- fallible and eager to learn
My notes laid out the steps I would take to pursue this crazy goal: develop a website, find a designer to create the graphics, research food publications and online communities to which I can contribute my voice. I’m well on my way.
I got serious about making a career transition at the beginning of this year. But the seeds were planted a reallyreallyreally long time ago. It’s only now that I’ve figured out how to combine two things I’m passionate about: writing and food. We’ll see where this goes. We’ll see.
Along the way, I’ll be posting new seasonal recipes, food finds, cooking inspiration and gardening a-has at least three times per week. I hope that writes4food will become its own little community, with readers like you sharing your own ideas and experience.
So, welcome to the new and vastly improved writes4food. Pull up a kitchen stool and grab a cup of coffee. Let me know how you’re doing.
