I attended the Black Diamond Mac and Cheese Festival this weekend at Ontario Place. It was the festival’s third year running, but this is the first year that I’ve been able to attend. Aside from the food, there was lots to see and do, including rides and a stage with live entertainment.
I’ve taken the past couple weeks to take a small break from writing and blogging. I found myself thinking of the blog as a chore. I lost the will to write – I was losing interest in the topics I was writing about. But now it’s June, and I’m thinking I’m going to make some changes around here.
From this point forward, the blog will have more of a lifestyle focus, specifically Toronto lifestyle. This summer I plan to do plenty of things in and around the city. So, now I’ll write about the things I do as they come up – the food I eat, the sights I see, the places I go, the food I eat (did I mention that already?).
In case you didn’t know, I’m a total foodie
This June, I’ll be going to Taste of Toronto and Taco Fest. Last weekend I attended Brunch Fest and it was delicious! I’ll be taking plenty of pictures of everything I try.
Something else that I will be doing is sharing any food recipes that I try at home. I already have a couple of things in mind that I want to write about (next post maybe?).
I’m excited for this new blog direction. I can’t wait to share all of my adventures (food related or not) with you this summer!
April showers bring May… well, it’s actually been raining a lot more in May over here, haha.
The month of April had more ups than downs in terms of traffic. However, I was contacted to write my very first guest post! Click here to read how cross stitch helps me de-stress. In turn, I had my first feature post on here about blogging. I’m definitely looking forward to doing more guest posts in the future.
A big thank you to Rhys from Lord Libidan for writing this guest blog post!
Back in February, Kathleen posted what she’d learned in one month of blogging and she went over a lot of the key areas of blogging. However, having started my modern cross stitch blog half a decade ago, she’s on the right track, but there are a few tips that have really helped me along the way to the point where I was able to launch a marketing blog too.
