Slow cooker meals are a lifesaver sometimes, and this Hawaiian Chicken is a tasty little godsend to have in your repertoire.
First things first. Have you heard of National Blog Posting Month (also known as NaBloPoMo)? It has been around, like, forever, but even though I’ve been blogging since 2005 (eeeks!), I have never done it. It’s when bloggers vow to blog (or try to blog!) every day during the month of November. Regular readers I’m sure have noticed that I don’t blog with the same consistency that I used to back in the day. I posted 6-7 days a week for the first few years, then I dropped to five days a week, and for the past few years, my goal has been 2-3 days a week. And even then, I struggle.
The struggle is for a variety of reasons. Over the years of this blog, I’ve had a baby. A miscarriage. Another baby. A divorce. A huge job change. In general, life has happened. And when something has to slip, it’s usually this space. I look at other successful bloggers and see they’re able to post crazy amounts of content weekly (like YoungHouseLove used to), and there are bloggers on the other end of the spectrum that only post a handful of times a year and still enjoy success (Orangette comes to mind). My posting frequency, or lack thereof, is just some arbitrary schedule that I started on my own, so, really, although I beat myself up about it sometimes, in the grand scheme of things … I’d rather blog because I’m inspired or passionate about something, not because I haven’t posted enough this week.
Ya feel me?
Some days I just don’t have anything to say (imagine that?!) and sometimes life just gets in the way. That being said, I’ve got some big goals for 2018, and this blog continues to be part of the journey. So when I saw a brief mention of NaBloPoMo in a facebook group I’m in, I thought it was just the motivation I needed to get back on track.
And! One of my oldest (and first) blogging friends is joining in the NaBloPoMo movement with me as well, so when you’re done here, be sure to visit Sarah at Sarah’s Cucina Bella to see how she’s kicking off the month.
So here goes!
