When I started this blog a few years ago, it was important to me that it be an outlet I enjoy. After all, I already had a list of things I do because I HAD to. This blog was supposed to be a happy place. A place where I wrote when I felt inspired — not obligated — to do so.
Delightfully, I’ve been able to remain true to that promise to myself most of the time. This blog has become a space for me to share thoughts, recipes, ideas, and more, and the kind words I’ve heard from readers has been beyond flattering. (Thanks to everyone who reads my blog! Y’all are the absolute best.)
I love the actual writing of posts. I enjoy coming up with ideas for posts, and typically have a running list going on my phone, adding to it when I feel inspired.
Inevitably, though, there come times when I feel guilty for not posting — maybe I haven’t posted in a while or something — and also don’t feel like writing anything new. Sometimes it’s because I don’t feel like I have much to say at the moment. Sometimes I just feel lazy and don’t feel like writing. Sometimes I just plain can’t think of anything to write about. (Today is one of those days, by the way.)
So I guess this post’s purpose is twofold:
- I think it’s important to challenge myself to write on those days I don’t feel like it, from time to time. I still definitely believe that this blog should be a place that isn’t fueled by obligation, and yet at the same time, sometimes it’s good for me to write when I’m not exactly in the mood — maybe even just to say “hi!”
- I’d love to hear from y’all about what type of Curiouser & Curiouser posts you like the most. Do you like recipes? Hearing about my workouts? Reading lists of my latest wardrobe loves? Let me know — I’d love to know what you enjoy the most to help spark ideas for future posts.
And with that, I leave you with a “hi!” and with a hilarious photo of Fulton taken during our drive to Atlanta last weekend. Hey, buddy!

I love your recipe posts the best, but you know I’m biased. 😉 I’ve definitely had times over the last few months when it’s been hard to sit down and create posts for my recipes, but your post just motivated me to keep at it!
Hey, thanks, G!

That’s great to hear! Thanks, Fiona.
