If you haven’t noticed, things around here have been rather quiet the past few months. Between almost nonstop travel and catching up with a bunch of much neglected administrative tasks, it has kept me from posting as often as I like. It’s just gotten to the point where in many ways, it was too much for me to handle all at once, especially since I’ve been feeling under the weather since spring.
I haven’t, even for a second, considered ending the blog or anything that drastic. Even after 5 years, I still love what I do here, and still have a passion for seeking out new experiences and foods to write about. There are still thousands of untold stories left in me.
But my lack of posting means that you all get the short end of the stick, because even though I’m working like a dog behind the scenes, you don’t get any of the benefit of it. There are restaurants I’ve gone to and written reviews of but can’t post them because it’s been too long since my visit.
To that end, to relieve some of the load, and because he has his own stories to tell, my husband Paul will be coming aboard officially as an integral part of the Columbus Foodie site. He started his own food blog a while back, but his posts have been few and far between – i.e. he doesn’t generate enough content to warrant his own site, but definitely has enough to say that it’s a win-win situation for all of us (you readers included). He’s a craft beer and liquor aficionado, with a passion for making recipes that are so complex or time consuming that I’d be pulling my own hair out and running the other way. But he also has a fun side, which I’m sure will come out as you get to know him, in his own words, instead of vicariously through my posts.
He had a dozen or so posts on his own site, which I’ll be merging into this one – expect to see the posts of his that I import in the next day.
And thank you all for being so patient with me and for continuing to visit even when there haven’t been updates – I appreciate each and every one of you.
