I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for 7 years! It’s been a crazy journey but I love it. When I started Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks it was a way to fill time after planning a wedding for over a year. I was posting reviews of books I was currently reading and simply sharing recipes that I was whipping up in my kitchen.
Fast forward 7 years and Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks has become my side job or part time job. I work as a brand ambassador for two fabulous companies. I create recipes for big name brands. I receive pitches for book reviews multiple times a week. I can’t believe how much my little blog has grown over the years. I also can’t believe how much time and work I put into this little blog.
I’ve learned that a blog can’t survive on it’s own. I’ve networked with many other food bloggers, met them in person, and have attended food conferences. This year I attended the Food Wine Conference in Orlando and I was also lucky enough to go to Plant City, Florida to learn all about Florida Strawberries. It’s opportunities like this that keep me blogging.
I’m hoping to be able to keep up with my blog just as well as I have for the past 7 years. I’m currently posting 4 days a week but I may go down to 3 days a week as we are expecting our first child at the end of this month! I’m sure this will impact Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks in many different ways including new recipes and probably even some DIY projects.
