Hello loves!

So since I mentioned in my last post that I want to be more productive with my blog, I have been so inspired to give you more quality information. It’s kind of nice to get back into blogging for a purpose and not just a photo dump.   With all the stress at work, one thing I thought that would help would be finding a hobby. Even though I still did the blog I really didn’t consider it that much of a hobby anymore because I knew I wasn’t putting much effort into it.

Since I am trying to improve my blog and provide useful information to all of you, I took that opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. While I was researching on how to maintain a better blog, finding some great information, I thought it would be great to share those tips with you guys as well.

One thing that I am disappointed in myself for letting slip is my food photography.  When I first started my blog, my photos may have not been the best, but I definitely put a little more effort into dressing up my meals.

This however was back when I was not working and had a lot more time to dedicate to plating and getting that perfect angle. Now-a-days I am lucky if my food makes it off the pan to a plate before being quickly devoured.  Or if it even makes it to a plate considering two out of three meals are eaten at work.  So with that being said my photos have suffered, but with this new found dedication to providing a higher quality blog, I am trying to educate myself on better techniques so it won’t take me as long to get that picture perfect shot.
