Let's Give Me Something to Blog About

Some days I just get up and don't feel like doing anything. Lately I have been hit by a string of flu's, colds, and viruses and this has really turned me into an unproductive heap.

My house is an eternal mess due to my two little tornadoes, my blog is not updated because my head is mush, the dishes are piling up, and the laundry... I won't even go there! It feels like there is just too much to do, and no way to do it all, so I just don't do any of it some days. Yes, I know, avoidance is not going to make it better, but the lack of motivation is winning out.

My blog seems to be the hardest part of all of this. I really want to blog, but I feel like I have nothing to say, or that I am not saying the right things to get people to keep reading. It's hard. I want to be interesting and funny and heartwarming, but I'm not sure how to get there.

So here it is, the million dollar question: What do you want to see on this blog?

Help me get a feel for where I might go next, because I am just stuck in a "my camera is broken and my blog has no pictures, so I don't want to post" rut.

I'm also toying with the idea of adding some food related and kid-friendly crafts projects every now and then. I am a crafty person (though my mom is even more so, maybe it comes with age?) and I think it would be enjoyable to throw in some fun ideas for incorporating crafts with your cooking, and having kid-friendly crafts available for kids to do while you cook.

I don't know, just thinking that maybe if I added another dimension to my blog it might help me come up with more regular posts and make things more interesting around here! What do you think?

This is your chance to sound off and tell me what is working, what's not, what you want more of, anything you want to say! I need some motivation and inspiration. GO!


  1. How about kid-friendly cooking? Things they can help put together easily and enjoy eating would be fun to see. (and something I could use at Thanksgiving with Christi's kids!)

  2. I'l love to see a RAW post.

    Actually, looking over your blog again, I suggest doing a very simple recipe. Do you have a favorite vegetarian crock-pot recipe? "Throw everything in the pot during naptime and by dinner time it's delicious!" ?
