Alphabet Soup

Forever, I've been saying I need to start a blog.

I read my friends' blogs, I read food blogs, I read photo blogs. I also enjoy writing, and I don't do it nearly enough.

But I can also be lazy at times. Saying you're going to start a blog, and actually doing it are two entirely different things. And then I get caught up in what it should look like. That starts an entirely new obsession (mostly frustration), especially for a web designing novice like myself. Finally, I decided it's not as important what it looks like right now, I just need to do it.

So here goes.

(Drum roll....)

I've decided to start a food blog of sorts. Since I enjoy cooking, it will have recipes. And since I also enjoy eating out, it could include entries on restaurants. And really, it's my blog, so technically it can include whatever I want.

But I like themes. So I needed a theme.

As I was walking home from the gym today, the inspiration struck me. What if I start at the letter "A" and work my way through the alphabet for each post? It would give me some direction, a fun challenge, with tons of possibilities. I realize that only gives me 26 entries...but that's a good place to start. After that, maybe I'll start back over or come up with a new twist.

So without further ado, I present to you: "'E' is for EAT."


  1. Well, hey, I get to be your first commenter : ) I'm excited to read this! And here's a blog tip... never apologize for whatever you do or don't do on your own blog. 'Cause like you said, it's your blog!
    : )

  2. Yay! I can't wait to read your blog. And I think the alphabet theme will be great to get you off on a good, consistent start.

    I know how daunting it can be to keep up a blog, but hopefully you will keep it going because you want to and not because you pressure yourself to do it. It is, indeed, your blog and you can do with it as you see fit.

    No matter what, I look forward to some great food-related writing and being able to keep up with such an awesome person (that's you!)

  3. Thanks Todd, Dave, and Elizabeth (though I still feel like I should call you Ms. Dillow :))

  4. E is actually for Erin but I will just assume you made a typo :)

    I am looking forward to your upcoming entries since I love your cooking and usually ask you where to eat when I need a new fun place in the city, or should I say anywhere you have ever been:) I miss having you in SD with me so this will be a great way for me to keep up with you- aside from our overdue phone dates, texts, emails, Facebook and Twitter! And as President of the Jaymee Sire Fan Club, I have no choice but to be your new blog's #1 Fan :)

    Xoxo Sire!!!

  5. Thanks Dialie! You are such a good fan club president. I will try not to disappoint you! :)

  6. Congrats on the new blog Jaymee! There is one positive thing to come out of the NBA lockout. You'll get to devote more time to this blog and I'll get to see if you're as big a food enthusiast as I am :D How did you become so passionate about food?


I would LOVE to hear what you think. I read every comment and get a little giddy when I see someone has left one on the blog. Thanks for stopping by!
