Things are a changin’ around Fish and Chips and Salsa. You probably won’t like them! You may love them! It doesn’t matter!
If you haven’t noticed over the past few months, my enthusiasm for the blog has been waning. Few posts. Blah posts. Sad posts. Every time I would think about the blog I would get nervous and feel like I needed to have something big and real to share because when we started this thing big and real things were happening all the time. But now? We are pretty acclimated. We don’t get lost; we know where to get everything we need; we have great friends; we both have jobs (!); and we walk around this amazing city purposely avoiding tourist spots rather than stopping and taking pictures. Constantly getting on here and writing about missing home and weird things about London was/is bumming me out hence the lack of posts- no one likes to have a hobby that reduces them to despondent tears. So I have decided- no more! I did briefly consider just stopping the blog but that made me sad. So I have decided to mix it up a bit.
I have been reading more blogs lately trying to figure out what direction I wanted to take F&C&S and realized that the blogs I really loved were a glorious mix of pictures, personal stories, decorating pictures, recipes, fashion and fun. I want to work on making the blog more fun. That will mean more posts. My goal is between 4 and 6 posts a week but they will be much shorter and less involved. Some of them won’t be very personal and some will be.
A note on censorship. One of my goals is to be a bit more myself on the blog and that will mean lowering the very high censorship bar that I have imposed on myself. I have made one intentional dirty joke on this bog so far and beat myself up about it for days. One of the reasons that I haven’t has a lot of fun writing the blog lately is because I am very concerned that people will see all my faults and not like me any more. So let me lay it all out there for you right now. I have a wicked sense of humor and delight in making inappropriate jokes. I curse too much. I would cross a hot desert for a good passion fruit martini. I am a complete tightwad who occasionally likes to splurge on something really fabulous. My taste leans toward the tacky but I like to call it eclectic. I can’t spell. I am a packrat/minimalist. I am an epic procrastinator who could happily live in a hazardously messy house as long as I can carve a path through to the bathroom/door/fridge/bed. There’s more but I am feeling a bit exposed right now. So if you are still interested keep stopping by. If not there are kazillions more websites that you can visit. See you soon.
