Considering A Change

If you've been around for a while, you know I go through spurts and dry spells with my blogging. This blog has also changed over time. When I first started, there were no book reviews. I wrote mostly writing advice as I found it helpful for me to put my thoughts into words. But over time (right around the time of my first summer reading project) this blog became mostly reviews. They were incredibly short and didn't have much substance to them. This has changed into longer reviews where I try to delve deeper into books without being so long-winded that it gets boring.

Now I'm contemplating another change. I adore reading. I'm currently reading three books right now. One is my At Home book. One is an audiobook I listen to on the way to work, and another one is the Huge Book That Is Going To Take A Year to Read. I love my books, clearly. I have another passion. It's baking. In the last couple years I have really gotten into cooking and baking, mostly because I was finally out of the college dorms where the "kitchen" was a sink and an ironing board. I make a lot of crock pot meals and I'm building a spice collection. But my true passion is baking. The more complicated the better.

And I've been thinking about changing this blog once again. I want to do book reviews. I really enjoy writing them. But I'd also love to share my baking experiences with you. I'm not yet at the point where I develop my own recipes from scratch, but I do tend to have interesting experiences because I don't have a complete kitchen like a lot of food bloggers. I don't have a standing mixer. I have two spatulas and one set of measuring spoons. I have to read recipes and adjust based on my equipment. I can't make certain things because of it.

So, I'd like to share my experiences with my readers. I'm not sure yet how this could change the blog, how often I would post about it, or if it would just be a background to my reviews. I'd love recommendations! Sound off!
