After significant deliberation (and after listening to the advice of a close friend from Church), I have made the heartwrenching choice to refrain from blogging for forty days. *Sharp gasp for air.* And... "Blogging" means taking food pictures, generating new blog ideas, checking web stats on SiteMeter or Google Analytics, and commenting on and reading other (marvelous and tempting) blogs.
For forty days, Passionate Eater will remain an empty blog, devoid of new words and new spirit. But the old words and old spirit will live on during that time, and hopefully, beckon you to return again.
This is going to be incredibly difficult for me, because I adore (and thrive off of and have a drug-like addiction to) reading food and gossip blogs.
I love learning from all of you. I love your pictures. I love your writing, your prose, your poetry. You are perfect in everyway.
Most importantly, I am very grateful for and honored by the wonderful friendships that I have formed as a result of food blogging.
Okay, it is almost midnight. You know what this means.
Let the countdown begin! Check back here in forty days for a new post, if you still care about me then. I promise that my love will be the same for you! (Whew, I'll have over a month of your posts and comments to catch up on! That is an amount greater than my summer reading assignment in high school!)
Till then, please visit the absolute-best-blogs-in-the-world (which are conveniently listed on my sidebar)! Like Eat, Drink, & Be Merry, The Epicurious Wanderer, I Am Mad, and I Eat, Jinerous, Mmm-Yoso!!!, Monster Munching, Pink Nest, and Rachel's Planet, just to name a few of my particular favorites!
