You know what I realized this morning? I’ve been blogging regularly now for seven years. S-E-V-E-N. Sure, I’ve really only been focused solely on food and recipes since the beginning of 2014, but I started cranking out blog posts about two months before the hubby and I embarked on a two-year stint in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia back in 2009. I haven’t really stopped since.
Blogging has meant a lot of things to me. At first, it was a way for me to feel connected and grounded. For the first few months that we lived in Kuala Lumpur, I felt aimless. I didn’t know anyone. I wasn’t there for a job, so there wasn’t anywhere I had to be every day. I was a newlywed, and everyone drove on the wrong (left) side of the road. The blog was a lifeline to a life I deeply missed back home in the U.S.
