So when it comes to blogging, you could say I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching lately. These past few months I’ve felt like I’ve run out of steam, like I was no longer enjoying producing content and recipes for Primal Bites, and like I wasn’t really helping or inspiring anyone through simply sharing recipes and photographs. Not to mention I’ve been slammed with waves of demanding coursework repeatedly throughout my first semester of Senior year, and I’ve been training pretty seriously for competitive powerlifting. All of that takes a lot out of a gal, and I couldn’t seem to find the time, energy or direction to reignite my passion for Primal Bites.
After some much needed introspection, I have realized that just producing recipes for you guys is no longer fulfilling for me. In the past I’ve been afraid to blog about more provocative or personal topics, not so much because I was afraid of being judged, but more because I feared that no one would care. And maybe no one will, but I’m at a point in my life and my blogging career where I. Don’t. Care. I’m going to be me— I’m going to share my story, my opinions, my ideas, etc. and if ONE person can connect with me or learn something new because of it, that’s a win in my book. And guess what? If that one person is myself, I’m 100% okay with that.
In an attempt to contribute a more holistic exploration of health to the discussion, I’m going to start writing more posts about strength training and mental well being, as well as some pieces investigating the intersection between sustainability and the future of food.
And with that, I’d like to introduce my three new series: Barbell Bites, Wellness Bites, and Sustainability Bites. Primal Bites will remain the overarching name of my blog, and it will be the title of the section of my site dedicated to recipes, however I will not be producing as many new recipes this year as I have in the past. Additionally, I will be featuring some *gasp* non-Paleo recipes…. But don’t worry, they’ll still all be gluten free, because gluten is the devil 😉 *takes another bite out of her gluten bomb doughnut*–more on that topic later though.
I’m SUPER excited about this new chapter. I feel inspired again and can’t wait to share more with you guys. If you’ve read this far (bravo!) are there any topics you would want me to cover? Burning questions? Existential crises? If so, let me know in the comments!
