Happy New Year!!

Hello everyone!

This is going to be a short post. I’ve thought about things for months now and have decided to close this blog down.

It was a hard decision to make as this was my first real blog. I’ve enjoyed it and I’ve enjoyed bringing you recipes and odd facts about food.

But, don’t you hate it when there’s a big ole but? But, I want to concentrate on my fiction writing. And I haven’t spent much time on this blog at all. At first I thought I could keep this one going, but I’ve been so busy lately with my other writing I just haven’t been able to turn my attention here.

So that is why I’ve made the decision to close this blog down for good on Friday, January 3.

If you are not following my other blog, the writing one, please join me over there, To Breathe is to Write

I would love to have you over there. As my writing takes me more and more places I find myself totally immersed in it. I have two books I’m currently working on, so it takes a lot of my time.

I want to thank everyone who has followed me, I do appreciate you. I’ll look for you on the other blog! We’ll have fun this coming new year, I promise!

      Thank you for always reading! My road goes into a different direction, but it was fun while I did it.

    This is where I found you Jackie! But I understand your decision so well, one has to focus :) New Year hugs!

      It was hard to let it go tiny, but I want to concentrate on my writing and I felt so darn guilty just letting it lay there unattended. Happy New Year my friend! Big hugs :-)

    I’ll miss your fun recipes but completely understand wanting to dedicate yourself to one blog! Happy new year, Jackie!

      Thank you Letizia! Writing is taking up a lot of my time and I wanted to concentrate on that. Happy New year to you also!

    Good-bye, food!

    You did a good job here, Jackie. Are you going to leave the actual blog up, so your archives are still searchable?

    • JackieP January 1, 2014 at 5:53 pm Reply

      I haven’t decided yet about leaving it up. I suppose I could so people have access to the recipes. I will think about that.

    Wishing for you all good things in 2014. I can understand having one blog, I had to do that myself and I am not a writer so I cannot even imagine how you would have a writing blog and others to keep up with. Have fun with your blog or blogs whatever you decide. Hugs

      Thank you Mags. Come visit me over on the other blog if you want. We’re all friendly over there. Hugs

    Jackie, I’ll miss your recipes but totally understand. Sometimes I feel like starting anew myself. I’m going to do more writerly posts in the future as well. Looks as if I’m in good company. I believe I already follow your other blog, but just to make sure, I will check. Happy New Year!

    • JackieP January 6, 2014 at 8:35 am Reply

      Hi Brigitte! I had to make a choice between the two blogs as I couldn’t seem to run both. My first love is writing, so I decided to stick with that instead of spreading myself thin over two. So glad you will be joining me. :-)
