This is just a quick update of where I am and where I’m going. Over the past few months, I have had the great pleasure of hosting a number of bloggers as contributing writers on my site. It has offered me a much-needed break, but alas it hasn’t been enough.
Just An Update
Let me explain. Within that time, I have moved and consolidated two households. I’ve needed to travel or had visitors on just about an every other week basis. My hand has been much challenged which ultimately led to a full on surgery. We have been actively working on a few new books and other new products. If that wasn’t enough, a decision was made to move my site to a new hosting company with a new design. With all this on our plate, along with a myriad of other responsibilities, it has left little to no time to do anything of quality or at least what I would like to share. Sadly my kitchen has experienced my absence. I’ve had just enough time to stay active on other blogs, the ones I subscribe to and who have stayed with me through these trying times.
What does all this mean? I need to reduce my activity even more to give me the much needed time to finish my new design and move my site to a new host. Along with that, in that same time, I hope to complete and beta test a drawing product that I believe will be well received. We are also in the beta testing stages of a cool new kitchen tool that we will offer for sale on my site. Then there are the books we are in the process of editing and formatting for future release. It’s a lot of stuff.
Does that mean I won’t be around? I will, but not as much as usual. I will continue to be active on the sites where I’ve been active to-date. That’s the easy part. You can expect to see a few more guest posts through December. I will do a few recipes as time and testing permits. Who knows, when the mood strikes I may do a story and few a wine posts. It will all depend on when time allows (and if I receive some wine to review… 🙂 ) or when I’ve made significant progress on my many projects.
When can you expect to see the new site? Our new website launch date is slated for January 13, 2015. Before that time, I will be very busy working on all the new stuff I hope to offer my readers. We are very excited about all that we have done to date and look forward to presenting it to you in 2015. When that happens, I will be back with a new byline “It’s about food, wine and conversation.” Where you can expect to see new stories, new great recipes, and new fun wines I find along the way.
So who is the “we” in one or all of these projects? Here is my team; David Sutoyo my incredible web master and website manager, Kristi Morgan my extraordinary assistant, Jeri Walker-Bickett my amazing editor, and last but not least my awesome husband. Without them, I could/would not be able to do this at all.
With all this said, in case I don’t have another chance, I want to wish you and yours the very best of Holidays. So keep an eye out for the future announcements about our new and improved “Finding Our Way Now.” We can’t wait to show you all that we’ve been up to when we re-launch in 2015.
Life’s journey continues…
