I've been struggling bloggily for the past several months; the crux of the problem is that my cooking, baking, and photographing is outpacing my rate of posting to this blog. My "drafts" folder has never been empty, but it has grown rapidly in this calendar year. At the moment it has in excess of 50 posts.
The biggest contributor to this posting deficit is my newfound interest in yeast baking January. For the past couple of months I've considered various options that would suit my energy, available time, and rudimentary computer ability, finally settling on the idea of establishing a separate yeast/bread blog. During an eventful baking session back in March, my daughter made a comment, "The loaf that the bakers rejected has become the corner loaf," a riff on language from Psalm 118. This gave me a blog name I like (and a banner image - the rejected loaf).
I set up the new blog a month ago, and continued pondering. Do I really want a new blog? And when? And how will The Dogs Eat the Crumbs react to having a new baby sister? All the while I edged closer and closer to taking the blog public, as the post backlog never diminished. In fact I found myself not wanting to try new recipes, afraid that I'd never get to post them. This weekend I finally decided to go ahead with the new blog. When I heard Psalm 118 at church this morning, I figured that today would be the day for the launch.
