It’s been three years and 18 days since my last post here at The Clever Fig. That sounds a bit like I’m in a twelve step recovery program. Those are usually for help stopping and I need help starting or actually restarting.
Every year around the birthday of this site I get a bill for web hosting and domain name registration. It’s not a lot of money, but it’s enough to make me wonder if it’s really necessary to keep this baby going. For some reason, I just haven’t had the heart to say goodbye or throw in the towel.
Last month I decided to shut it down. My thoughts were – I don’t cook or bake like I used to, how am I ever going to post even once a week and frankly I just don’t have it in me. My focus has changed. That’s putting a positive spin on it. Honestly I have been without focus. Thing’s have been a little blurry as of late.
So why the heck are you posting today? You may ask. Thankfully, the universe dropped a rock(more like a boulder) on my head to remind me that I can make this website anything I want. Forest, trees, blurry you get the picture.
I want to make this a place you can stop by for some food for your soul – inspiration, quotes, pictures, something to make you smile, helpful stuff – along those lines. It’s going to be a slow transformation, a work in progress. Creative therapy for me which I hope is helpful to you.
P.S. I’m a little (ok a lot) rusty at Word press. Evidently, after three plus years it falls out of your brain like it never happened.
