Hello there! Some of you may remember me. I used to go by the handle "Diary of a Mad Bathroom".
A little over a year ago, I was sailing through some rather choppy waters, personally and professionally. I did not have the focus, time or sense of humor left to keep my blog going, so I folded up my tent and I retreated.
The funny thing was, I did not retreat for long. The siren call of blogging was singing my name from a distant shore. Unfortunately at that time, I had so much bitterness and stress, that I thought I needed to change my message and provide an outlet for others that were going through similar experiences. This bitterness gave birth to my first ill-conceived attempt at blog re-entry:
The Only Water Cooler in Hell
Maybe it wasn't entirely ill conceived. There are certainly plenty of people that have had miserable work experiences, who need a place to rant about it. I think I just burnt out fast because I was working from a place of negativity. Oh, and I was supposedly running it anonymously. Surprise! It's me (like you didn't know).
That didn't last very long.
Then I decided that I would start a food related blog.
The Pedestrian Palate
Over the years I had posted plenty of pictures and stories about my cooking and baking exploits on Diary of a Mad Bathroom. So why not a food blog? But again, the single threaded topic burnt me out quickly because there is so much more that I have to say than "hey I just baked some yummy brownies". Blech. Boring.
So here I am, back like a bad penny, hoping to tap back into all that I loved about blogging. I can't wait to see what the blogging community has to offer, who's still around and who suffered from a similar identity crisis to mine. Just this one post and I already feel better. I hope the PTA didn't exhale, because I am back in the saddle and ready to start targeting their most heinous, bitchy and judgmental members. Warning - A Vera Bradley Bag and a luxury SUV is the same as a target to me. Duck bitches!
