Five years of blogging. Five. Full. Years.
Can you believe it? I know I can’t.
I had big plans for this year’s bloggiversary. Five years, in my mind, deserved something spectacular. I considered various forms of layer cakes – layers of cake, frosting, and other delicious treats. But then I had second thoughts. You see, for five years I’ve been sharing recipes that are exactly the opposite of this elaborate cake I had in mind. My recipes have always been about approachability – the ones you guys come for when you need recipes to feed your families on ordinary occasions. So to celebrate this incredible occasion….five years of blogging, I’ve got a fantastic recipe for you guys. It’s the kind of recipe you guys know and love me for. These Chocolate Corn Muffins are an approachable recipe that you’ll be baking for your family all the time. Just like your other Overtime Cook favorites.
Speaking of favorites, I’d love to hear a few of your favorites in the comments!
I talk about this every year, but I need to say a tremendous thank you to all of you who’ve been loyal supporters of my blog throughout the years. I’ve always said that the difference between this blog and all of my other week-long hobbies was readers. When you guys come and read, make my food, and give me feedback, it creates the fuel that keeps this blog running. And for that, I thank you all.
Since my fourth year of blogging ended, two incredibly huge changes have happened around here. Firstly, as you all know, I published my first ever cookbook, Something Sweet. If you still don’t own the book, you really need to buy it. (Okay, I’ll admit it…I’m biased.) The second thing has been a dream for years now, and about six months ago, I finally took the plunge and did it. I quit my job to pursue blogging, writing and photography full time. While it’s been a tremendous amount of work ever since, I’m proud to say I’m making it all work.
I can’t wait to see what the next year will bring for me – and all of you – but I look forward to sharing it with all of you.
