Change – And A Cookbook – Is Coming!
When I started this blog on March 27, 2008, it was mostly to amuse myself. My book had been on the market for a year, and I was bored with the writing required by my corporate overlords. I was about five months into my CrossFit journey and was just beginning to feel good enough about my body to be excited about the fashion possibilities. Inspired by GoFugYourself and Flickr Wardrobe Remix, I decided to write about the possiblities for self-expression provided by fashion. Because I can remember exactly what I was wearing for every significant event – and some not-so-significant ones – in my life, I thought I’d never run out of material.
For a few weeks, I wrote about men in hats and favorite boots – but I was becoming way, WAY more interested in the changes happening inside my body and inside my noggin. When I documented my first Spartan 300 workout in May 2008, my real blog was born.
A few months later, I posted my first recipe. (And I still think it’s a pretty good one!) As my knowledge of and commitment to dino-chow has grown, so has the recipe section of my blog. It’s up to 94 entries now… and I have a huge list of new recipes to share in the coming months.
It’s time for another evolution of The Clothes Make The Girl, so over the next few months, I’m going to re-launch my blog with better graphic design, organization, and functionality – and the same mix of recipes, stories, ranting, raving, and musing. Along with all of that, I’m also putting together a cookbook!
Later today, I’ll post a survey designed to gather your thoughts on the cookbook, so keep an eye out for the link later! Your input is really important to me – I won’t be satisfied unless the cookbook is just what you need to help you eat delicious dino-chow every day.
So… a humongous hug and high five to old friends who’ve been with me from the beginning and to new friends who’ve just stopped by for the food. Writing to all of you is one of the best things I get to do with my time. It’s both a comfort and a gift to have you in my corner to cheer me on and to commiserate when things don’t go as wonderfully as I saw them in my overactive imagination. Thank you!
