Changes Are Afoot

So, who else is cranky? Despite the fact that it was a gorgeous day today, I'm in a wicked funk. It might have to do with spending too much time in the Social Security office, getting lost on the way there, or forgetting about Wednesday night's reservation at Aquarelle...Okay, there it is. The root of my crankiness.  Wednesday night was the last night of Austin Restaurant Week and where was I? At home on my computer, not eating delicious french food.

I have a confession to make. I've suffered a blogging setback that has me rethinking the direction of Austin Food Journey. The setback isn't really a setback, but more of a consequence of my own stupidity. Without going into detail, my choices are:
  1. Change the title of Austin Food Journey, which is basically starting over with a new url
  2. Keep the same url, but redirect to a different domain name (That's the cyber equivalent of fixing it with chicken wire and duct-tape.)
  3. Start a completely new blog with a new focus (I'm liking that option the most.)
  4. Give up on blogging altogether and live my life
As I've been pondering the situation over the last few days, I realized that I'm in kind of a state of mourning. I really enjoyed my life as a "food blogger." I liked having a focus and feeling a part of a community, even if I was just barely part of it. But now it's time to use what I've learned and move on. I don't have the details together quite yet, but when I figure it all out, you'll be the first to know. And, trust me, it's going to be a lot more fun than food. In fact, I just bought a new pair of shoes with the money that I would have spent on fine dining at Aquarelle. I'm feeling better already. So, stay tuned...
