How this blog helped me choose my new profession



This food blog is three and a half years old. I have had a wonderful time working on it, and plan to continue updating it as often as possible.

Still, at times I wondered what my motivation was, why I was I so into it. Though I love baking, I knew there was something more that made me stay up late nights working on it. I sometimes told my husband, "you know, there's something here that's important to me, it's not just about the food." He watched patiently as I squandered hours of my time, trying new complicated recipes, photographing the process and writing it up in detail.

And then in February, I read about a new profession, and had a revelation: I wanted to become a visual explainer.
