I’ve titled today’s post the Big Reveal because I’ve recently decided that it’s time to tell my friends and family about my blog. Let me explain.
I toyed with the idea of starting a food blog for some time, and finally took the plunge and launched this blog in October of 2013. I chose to keep Devour a secret from everyone except my husband, and I really only told him because we live together and there was no easy way to hide it from him (and for the record, he’s been amazingly supportive). You see, reader, I’m a crazy person, and I knew that it was going to be a bumpy road – I’ve never blogged before, and I’d certainly never taken any decent pictures of food. I guess I just wanted to keep it secret in case the blog turned out to be a massive failure, and I could easily delete it and pretend it never happened. See? Crazy.
It’s taken me just over 4 months to be comfortable enough to let my friends and family see what I’ve been up to. For me, it’s so much easier to put myself out there in front of strangers rather than people I know. For instance, when I was into the whole acting thing, I could happily stand in front of hundreds of strangers and sing, dance or perform a monologue, but you could not pay me enough money to stand in front of a small room full of my friends and do the same thing.
So now the cat’s out of the bag. Hi there, friends and family and various acquaintances!
Here’s what happened this week:

That’s all for now. Gotta prepare my Oscar night snack menu and do some other really exciting, glamorous things like laundry and dusting.
Until next time,
