A New Year, A New Project
Today I am very excited to share a new project with you that has been in the works since last fall and one that I am thrilled to be a part of.
It is not so much a secret anymore, as I've been Tweeting and talking about it for a while, but nevertheless, it is finally time to make the official announcement...
In just a few days, (on February 8, more specifically), I will be taking an editorial position at Simple Living Media and launching..............Ta-Da!
Go on, click the link above and go check it out. I'll be here, waiting for when you get back and we can chat. I'll bake off some cookies while I wait, how about that?
Simple Bites Topics
As of next month, Simple Bites is where you'll find me hanging out, dishing several times a week on everything that I am passionate about. Dedicated to all things food and drink, but with an emphasis on simple living, this new website will focus on important topics such as sustainable eating, wholesome recipes, and cooking with (& for!) kids.
I'm particularly excited about topics such as 'Preserving' (Jam & Jelly 101, anyone?) and 'Cooking School'. I haven't written much here about my experiences in culinary school previously (mostly because I'm still in therapy to deal with them), but you're going to hear all about it there, with TONS of tips and tricks to implement into your daily cooking.
Other topics I'll regularly visit are Quick Bites, Menu Planning, Entertaining, and for once and for all, getting Organized in the kitchen!
I feel as though I've been preparing for the role of editor for the past ten years and am confident in what I have to offer readers. As a bonus, I've assembled an impressive team of contributors to support me in that role. Head here to check them out; you'll probably recognize a few faces! They hail from three countries, all of them mothers, and even one grandmother (you'll never guess which one, don't even try to figure it out).
I'm immeasurably proud to be a part of the Simple Living Media family, lead by administrator Tsh, of the hugely popular and ever-inspiring Simple Mom.
Oh yeah, it's not just Simple Bites that will kick-start in a few days, but an entire network. Joining the already established Simple Mom and Simple Kids, will be Simple Organic and Simple Homeschool, both going live the same day as Simple Bites, making this event rather remarkable, if you ask me.
But Wait? What About UtHC?
OK, I know what you all are thinking and so I'll address the elephant in the room.
YES, I will still be maintaining Under the High Chair.
After four years, how could I not? It's a huge part of my life, as are all of my readers.
Sure, things may get a little quieter around here, because, well, we all know new babies get all the attention, but I'm not shutting down shop, and on most days, I'll be just a click away over at SB.
Launch Date: February 8
I hope you will join me over at Simple Bites on February 8th for a little blog warming. Perhaps you'll even subscribe and stick around; nothing would make me happier than to see your familiar names and faces in the comments section.
Hey, a girl can always hope!
In the meantime you can follow me on Twitter @simplebites, I'll be dishing most of my food ramblings from there now. You can also become a fan of Simple Bites on Facebook.
