Working Behind the Scenes

Time goes so fast in between blog posts but I promise I haven’t been sitting on my butt not doing anything. In fact I have several blog posts just sitting in my noggin’ waiting to be written.

What I have been doing is going back to older posts and fine tuning them. Since I’ve been blogging for 6 years now I’ve learned a lot and when I go back and look at older posts of mine I cringe. My post format is all centered and the pictures are horrible, my writing even left something to be desired. But funny thing, I had more comments back then than I do now.

Regardless of that, I’m trying to go back and straighten up what needs to be straightened, add new photos or at least help the ones that are there that can be helped. It’s time consuming but I think we will all benefit from it. So bare with me.

Right now I’m working on my cooking section. A lot of recipes are without photos because it was back before digital cameras. It would take a long time to go and make each recipe and post a new photo but I can tell you that even though a lot of recipes don’t include a picture the recipe is still good. *smile*

So that’s what I’ve been doing. What have you been up to?




  1. I have always enjoyed reading your blog, it gives me great enjoyment. Looking forward to seeing where you head to next.

    Hot here, looking forward to cooler weather next week.

  2. My blog has been a little a little neglected lately, mostly cos I've been busy with work (part-time) added to my schedule. At times I think I should just pull my blog as I get very little comments but then my blog is a bit like a diary for me. To record stuff so it shouldn't matter whether people read it/post or not. But somehow it does...

    Have a great week, Kim regardless of what you do or DON'T do!

  3. That is quite a task to go back like that and reformat things! I get dizzy just thinking about it, LOL. We have been very busy with vacation planning and making arrangements. I've also be studying really hard with various online courses to build my photography skills. And now you know that I got a new iPhone now too, so I'm busy getting it set up and learning all the tricks. I have to work on my photo challenge images ASAP because I'm running out of time (need to post-process). As soon as that's done, then I can start working on income tax preparation and filing. Ugh!

  4. I go back and clean up old posts from time to time. I try to look at what posts still get hits (mostly recipes) and work on those first. But it takes forever! :)

    Big there's-always-plenty-of-work-to-do-behind-the-scenes-especially-for-you-homeschoolin'-homesteadin'-mamas size hugs to you! Love ya!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
