Post to Instagram Every Single Day

Hi everyone.

I’m so sorry I’ve been so quiet for so long.

Re-designing this blog is taking me longer than I expected!

However, I should have something very cool to show you next week: not a blog, but a free writing course. This email-based course will guide you through the creation of a completely new short story.

There are six “lessons,” and each arrives every couple of days, so the whole thing should take about two weeks. You’ll get tips on plot, on character development — woven into the story creation process.

But that’s not the focus of this post. The short-story course is not quite ready to share, sadly.

I wanted, instead, to point you in a different direction. I was hoping you might like food.

Do you like food? Do you like pictures of delicious food and drink?

If so, I was wondering if you would like to follow my wife’s profile on Instagram. 

She is @coquettekitchen.

This is what we were recipe testing with the ingredients from Monday's post! Tennessee Cherry Chili hollandaise. Shown here on top of jalapeño cheddar bread from @breadshedcafe and topped with a poached duck egg and fresh parsley. This is decadent and delicious, and the salt brined Tennessee Cherry Chili Hollandaise from Rusty Springs Farm provides a hint of heat. It looks complex, but did you know that hollandaise is actually pretty easy, and if you have a blender it takes all of about 5 minutes to make? #knoxville #knoxrocks #foodblogger #knoxvilletn #newblogger #instayum #instafood #foodstagram #food52 #feedfeed #huffposttaste #yummy #foodlover #foodislife #blogger #bloggingmom #momblogger #yummy #thekitchn #yahoofood #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeastfood #huffpostgram #mompreneur #foodblog #yolkporn #foodblogeats #eggyolk #recipetesting

Jeni is doing something quite heroic this month (and next month too, I think): posting a new image — of food, drink, books, or a comment on being a new mother — every single day to Instagram.

And these are not casually taken pictures. Trust me! There is planning, there is photography equipment…

Week after week, she is honing her skills as a food photographer, despite a busy schedule at work and at home.

This video is kind of… intense. Look:

If you are on Instagram, you should follow her!

Getting Ready for the Re-Launch


Dear readers. Sorry I’ve been so quiet this month. This is not because I’ve forgotten you or this site. 

On the contrary: I have been working very hard on a re-design — and expansion — of this blog. I think the new version is going to be really remarkable, with free ebooks, better navigation, email training courses, and a newsletter. Plus I have a lot of big posts planned.

It’s taking me time, that’s all. I’ve been teaching myself CSS, listening to a lot of podcasts…

I suspect I won’t be ready to launch before April 1. But I’m excited to share the site with you when it’s complete.
