No photos or compelling narrative about cookie decorating here.
I just have a confession to make.
I’m less than a month into this endeavor and have already concluded that food blogging is NOT for the faint of heart.
I love it, but it’s anything but easy.
I’ve read everything I can about food blogging for
months years and I readily admit I was forewarned by all those in the know, all the food blogging veterans, that it would not be easy.
Now I know that, in a big way.
Documenting my progress as I set out on my pursuit to learn cookie decorating and some basic photography skills is my goal. I enjoy writing, so blogging about it was to be the “fun” part. The “easy” part.
Oh Lord, talk about being oblivious!
Making dough and baking cookies while trying to capture each step of the process in photos, editing those photos to some degree of clarity, formulating my thoughts into something I can put into writing……
It’s a full-time job, and then some.
It’s not like I’m admitting defeat here and I certainly have no plans to roll over and play dead, but I do agree that it’s a challenge.
I may not be competent at blogging yet, but I hope that one day down the road I can look back at the beginning of my blog, the first dozen or so posts here on Royal Icing Diaries, and have a good laugh at myself for my ignorance.
I stick to my mantra that if you’re not having fun it’s just not worth it.
