Top 12 for 2012: My Bad

You know you’re a bad blogger when…

1.You make delicious vegan breakfast burritos and gobble them up before even thinking about snapping a photo. Which is what happened Sunday morning. I guess I’ll just have to make them again ASAP?

2. In fact, you realize, taking photos of your food is no longer second nature. You’re not even sure where your camera is.

3.You can’t remember the last time you posted.

4.Upon checking, the last time you posted was over two months ago. (Seriously?)

Yes, seriously.

5. On that note, your last post is titled, “Hello, Fall!” I think it’s safe to say that ship has sailed.

6. You failed to post on Thanksgiving, arguably the biggest foodie day of the year–despite making a really yummy sweet potato and kale gratin.

7. When attempting to brainstorm clever names for a post, you’re so out of practice that you keep coming up with pop song titles such as “Since You’ve Been Gone” or “Oops, I Did It Again.”

Sad. Really, really sad.

8. This forces you to consider the fact that maybe blogging isn’t for you. Then again, you kinda miss it. You’re not quite ready to throw in the towel.

9. You start to consider posting your first-ever “vlog” because it seems like less work than actually composing a post.

10. On second thought, a vlog would require you to make yourself look presentable for the World Wide Web. Nahh.

11.You’re shocked when a new reader subscribes. This is shortly followed by feeling guilty for tricking someone into a blog that is not really active. You feel an equal desire to both post something new immediately and to warn them to get out while they still can.

12.Your “Top 12″ list is not your best recipes of 2011, but rather the ways your blog has gone downhill. Ha.

My New Year’s resolution?

To blog somewhat more consistently. ;)

What’s your resolution this year?

    :D I am guilty of almost all of these points except for the Thanksgiving thing… but only because we don´t celebrate thanksgiving here :) I took my camera with me when I went home for Christmas, but I never turned it on and I actually left it at home as I returned to school, because I realized that I am no more interested in taking pictures of my meals :)

    Hahaha I love this. Best post ever. :)

  3. I was wondering if you would ever come back. I’m still waiting to hear about that marathon!

    Kelsey….just came upon your blog and I’m LOVING it…I too am an avid runner and might have a slight (ok, huge) obsession with peanut butter….and maybe kale and avocado…and so on!! Your recipes ROCK, super easy to follow and with simple ingredients!!! I’m hoping to start my own blog by the end of the year… great to have inspiration from such awesome women like you!

  5. I had just checked your blog the other day to see if you had anything new but then saw this post on Twitter today! Hope your 2012 is going well so far :D

  6. Haha! The pop song titles totally got me! Not sure if I can forgive you for withholding the sweet potato and kale gratin (maybe omission of the truth would’ve been better for my heart on that one), but I seriously know how hard it can be to keep up with blogging AND have a life at the same time…I mean, it’s not like these are our jobs…so I’ll compromise with you and not hold a grudge as long as you find it in you to pop out some sort of delicious sweet potato and/or kale recipe in the new year! ;) Wow, hello run on sentence!

    I only have one new year’s resolution this week and it may make me sound like a horrible person who doesn’t care about her job, but my goal is to be ON TIME for work every day. Nobody really cares…and my manager is ALWAYS at least 15 minutes late, but it started to bother me how I kept getting later and later. So far, I’ve clocked in on time every day! The trick is…don’t go near the computer in the morning! Lol

    • I know, not posting a recipe with sweet potatoes AND kale is pretty inexcusable haha! I will get my act together and post it for sure. :)

      I love your New Year’s resolution! It’s totally doable. That definitely happened to me at the last job. Once you start showing up late (and don’t *need* to be on time), it is so hard to break the habit. Such a slippery slope. And staying away from the computer will prob solve it–it’s such a vortex!!!
