Sunday is for coffee, chocolate & a chat

OMG I lost it allI can’t say I didn’t expect it to happen and really, I should have been ready for it but losing my blog was a bit of a body blow.

I’ve been eating chocolate, writing my thoughts up and sending them into the ether for awhile now.  While I try and make it useful I have to admit sometimes I wonder if anyone has found any review to be helpful and bought something new or different as a result.  I’m much more used to doing reviews on recognised review sites and there are enough people there that my ramblings have an audience no matter what.  I also write regular articles for a variety of publications but I suppose I never considered how much my blog meant to me until I lost it.

I vented on Twitter, I vented on Facebook and I learned that my webhost is beyond incompetent but I also learned that my blog is important to me.  I’ve discovered a world of chocolate and I’ve met people I would not have otherwise met.  I’ve been to a Green and Blacks event, something I would have never have dreamed of doing and I’ve interviewed some of the greatest chocolatiers and I hope to do more.

This blog has been so much fun for me and I’m going to try and make it more interesting for you guys as well.  I’m going to try and bake more, experiment a bit, and get gossipy with you.  I do have a demanding full time job and spend most of my free time crunching numbers, emailing, and doing work stuff but I hope to be able to make it interesting for you because I’m not just blogging into the ether anymore.

I’m chatting with friends about something I’m passionate about.

    Thanks so much! It was a bit of a shock but it really taught me how much I value the interaction and the blogging and everything.

    I hope that the blog is useful for other people as well 😀

  4. Glad you got through the time without your blog. You need to keep going your one of the many sites I check daily. However I’m also trying to make more of an effort to comment these days as your own feelings is what I feel about my site.

    Just started my journey onto chocolate blogs – always LOOOOOVED artisan handmade and unique chocolates and realize I might want to take a chocolate making class as I shift from one career into SAHM for a few years… It’s challenges like having our work lost that make us even better! Glad you have this blog and I’m happy to follow you on Twitter AND your blog:) There’s gotta be a perfect chocolate fix to survive a lost blog:) I recommend Black Dinah Chocolates out of Isle au Haut, Maine. Just ordered some of their boxes and decadently delicious!

    🙂
