Hiatus, July 2009

The above photo, taken on the Hawksbury river in NSW recently, is a metaphor of sorts that conveys a number of messages regarding this blog.

Firstly, the skywriting’s “cryptic” message regarding the current state of this blog.

For those of you who don’t get it, this blog is currently on hiatus. There are a number of things that need to be addressed both professionally and personally that I need to devote some attention to at this stage. Nothing bad as such. There’s just a lot to deal with at the moment.

Secondly, as with the delivery of the skywriting gag, the blog can do with a little work. So along with dealing with other matters, I’ll be looking to spend some time working on the look and feel of the blog. A new paint job here. A polish there. Hopefully all for the best :)

Lastly, there will be a swag of posts to come with the newly worked blog, from a weekend adrift on the Hawksbury river, video of a sushi shoot-out at Wagaya, Japanese cooking with Kei’s Kitchen, fun with fondue and various dinners and functions with food bloggers (not necessarily in that order).

I’ll still be around for the final week of Masterchef chat, as well as on twitter during the hiatus, which I expect to last around a month. In the meantime, feel free to peruse previous blog entries and see how far things have come from my modest beginnings. From my first use of video (Taste of Sydney, Part 2) to the origin of the South Park avatars (Miracle Frootie Wig Party) and my first hands on with a DSLR (Chocolatesuze’s birthday at Wagaya, Part 2).

Stay in touch and see you all soon! :)

    Looking forward to the new heart of the food! I think we all need to stop eating for once and do some blog maintenance…. I am desperately in need of that myself.

    Hey all!

    Thanks for the support! Slowly making headway with the new site. No doubt you'll hear all about it when it's ready to launch.

    Hi Helen! Interesting question to ask when bloggers then to meek out as much of the day as our bodies & mind can tolerate the way it is!

    Hi FFichiban! Glad at least someone got it (or at least acknowledge it) :P

    Hi Betty! Thanks and will do. Can't see myself not eating any time soon :P

    Hopefully the work on the new blog makes up for it.
