New Year, new look, new goals

So technically it's halfway through January, but I figured I would get around to making some resolutions of a sort. I vow to use this blog as a tool to practice my cooking, photography, and writing. I've been viewing it up until this point as a cooking blog, under the assumption that people would read it on a regular basis, make the recipes I posted, and I would get famous. Like Pioneer Woman.

It's been two and a half years and I'm still waiting for a book deal, which is totes fine. I'm not an authority on cooking. Seems silly that just because I learned how to take nicer photos I would pretend I know what's going on. photo

But, it's a good way to force myself to write often, stay creative, and eat things that aren't boxed or canned.

And so I've update the blog look to reflect my true self:

Giant nerd.

If you look up at the adorable header that I'm sure you've already noticed, little Disney princess-esque Sarah is cooking while standing in front of a Tardis. Behind Dash and a Pinch, the blog name is written again...in Gallifreyan. And the background is now filled with the logos of the things I love.

Why not embrace my quirkiness, and push my blog towards a more niche market? I'll still share regular recipes, but I'm going to let my voice shine through the writing rather than just post the step by step instructions. I'm going to push myself creatively, and maybe I'll finish Starting from Scratch, start my scifi series, that sequel to Passion's Tide, sculpt that hobbit hole, complete that tardis painting, start singing again...

So lets look back on some dorky moments from the past year:

I'm so cool I can't even stand it.

One thought on “New Year, new look, new goals

  1. I hope you had a great holiday! And, I totally support this new look/focus, haha. I'm also looking forward to sharing more of my geek side on my blog this year, since it's such a huge part of who I am. Maybe we can do some more fun nerdy collaborations together as well. 🙂 Here's to the new year!
