6 Foodie, Oh Foodie, Oh Where Have You Gone?!!!
Rest assured, my friends, Corey the Gourmet Foodie With Attitude (G.F.W.A.) has not permanently gone into hiding nor has she been submerged underneath her kitchen pots & pans! I am still here! Just a tad bit busy here, as I've been preoccupied with several other things/activities that are taking precedence right now.
OK, I'll make you a deal: I promise not to talk about myself in the third person again, if you promise to cut me some slack for my lack of posts over the last several weeks! Heheheh. ;-)
I promise that at some point soon, I will start posting recipes & other foodie-related news & comments again. It's just that right now, my various business projects, marathon training, & running blog (!) have taken over my life. No, just kidding. Well, sort of. ;-)
As you probably already know, I have 6 blogs, to which I contribute when I can find the time & also, frankly, when I feel like it. So, sometimes I'm in the mood to post about these various subjects -- food, business, art, music, fashion, etc. -- and sometimes I'm just not.
I'm just like the rest of you -- I've got a full-life & career, with about a zillion different interests & projects -- so, that means that while I often have the inclination & the interest, I might not always have the time. I do try my best, but as I'm human & only have 10 fingers with which to type, you'll have to forgive me if I lapse on this blog, or any of my other blogs, from time to time.
If only I'd been born a cephalopod; then I could really type fast! The only problems would then be (1) a slight language barrier issue, (2) typing 75 words per minute, underwater, and lastly, (3) resisting the temptation to eat the really cool-looking, waterproof computer. ;-) Hey, you never know. Cephalopods have been known to do crazier things.
I'm sure you other bloggers out there can relate to what I'm saying. That is, about the non-stop multi-tasking craziness in our ever-busy lives, and not about the cephalod pod thing! (...Although it clearly might come in handy!)
Blogging can easily take over your life if you let it, and frankly, with my 6 blogs, 3 businesses (with myriad fashion & trunk shows & other promotional events), 1 cookbook project, weekly marathon training, & various activities involving 2 cats, 1 fiancé, friends & family, etc., I sometimes feel like my head's going to explode. And then add in the internet information overload.
I know it probably feels like you are sitting on a park bench (albeit a virtual one in cyberspace!), "waiting for Godot," or rather "waiting for Corey to post" on this blog, but I promise you that your patience will not go unrewarded.
I've got some exciting new recipes in the works, which will be released in a brand new cookbook. These recipes will be all-original recipes created by little ole' moi, a.k.a., Cyberpenguin -- passionate foodie, gourmet chef, & blogger extraordinaire. OK, maybe that last qualifier was a little much, especially since I haven't exactly been blogging regularly here on this site. But that's why you need to check out my other blogs, because who knows when the mood to blog will strike, or where & when the next post will appear. Your guess is as good as mine. ;-)
So, as a small consolation prize for your steadfastness & patience, I'd like to offer up blog content from my other blogs. Your welcome to check out the most recent posts from my running & fashion blogs, both of which contain several new articles, written over the past few days.
Bon appétit, & thanks again for your comments & emails, & for being such loyal readers & vocal advocates/fans of my blog!
