Why did you start your blog? Has the experience been what you expected?
My husband and son, both very connected to the internet, forced me to start a blog.

The one thing that really surprised me and what I didn’t expect, though, was that the very first day I sat down to write that very first blog post, the words flowed; writing that first story was indescribably exhilarating. It really took me about another year to realize that writing, not food, was my true passion as well as my future.
