I've done a lot of blogging over the years on our company blog, but I've never taken it to a personal level. Sometimes it's just not enough to update friends and family via Facebook and Texting. Especially when you want to share a recipe or some photos or links to some of your favorite websites and blogs... it can get overwhelming. Plus, why limit it to immediate friends and family? You know what they say...once you start a blog you enter into a whole new world so to speak. So... why not start my own blog and join the blogging community? That's my thought for today and I will say The Pioneer Woman ~ Ree Drummond got me started. I love the photos of her family's Ranch in Oklahoma, her adorable four children and pets, her amazing recipes, and so much more that she shares on her blog, Confessions of a Pioneer Woman . I'm certain my blog will have a different style, and take on a life of its own, but I can't help but credit her for inspiring me. If you haven't heard of Ree please check it out because she is truly a Blogging Inspiration and if that doesn't wet your appetite, check out some of her recipes! I can put a vegetarian twist on anything so I still source out cooking tips and techniques from every ethnicity, region, background and style I encounter. And SHE has me hooked!
