My friend Jason has an excellent rule:  Don’t blog about blogging.  For the most part, I follow this rule, and I think it makes for a better read when people keep their meta posts to a minimum.  (That doesn’t include you, Darren — your blog is ABOUT blogging!)

Today, though, I have a few exciting things to share with you about this blog:

1) Now you get to play, too!

So many people have asked me how they can share their Mom Food stories with my readers that I’ve set up a way for you to do it easily and quickly.  Just click on the Contribute tag and scroll down to #3: “Write a guest blog post.”  Et voila–you can join me and Carin in being part of the Mom Food phenomenon.

I’m thrilled about this.

2) Look look look!

My kid, who is an awesome cartoonist and artist, is working on my site redesign, and she just gave me a preview of the avatar she created of me.  How adorable is this? If you’ve met me in person, doesn’t she look like me? I just want to bounce for joy!

(If you click on the avatar, you’ll go to her DeviantArt page, where you can see her art, or commission her to make you a cute avatar, too.)

3) New contributors + site redesign = more posts!

I’ll be moving from a three-posts-per-week schedule to an every-day posting calendar.  This will ramp up between now and October 1, and on Fridays there will be two posts: My usual Follow Friday post, and one for French Fridays with Dorie.

Anyway, that’s my news for today. Stay tuned for more more more posts coming up.

Stockdale’s coping method was to accept that their situation was unimaginably shitty, while also holding onto the knowledge that it is absolutely possible to survive such things. His first step was to develop a system of code that would let the captives talk to each other, finding ways to commiserate and reassure each other after torture sessions. Letting each POW get outside of his own head, in other words, so that his universe wasn’t reduced to a tiny bamboo cell and a black cloud of despair. Stockdale also wrote letters home, full of coded information, having no idea whether they were making it to the recipients or not. Navy

I run The Mom Food Project, which was born out of love for my mom and a desire to preserve the recipes of my childhood, which didn't actually exist in written form until I quizzed my mom and wrote the recipes down.

  2. The avatar your daughter drew is so cute! I love that Japanese anime style. I can hardly wait to see the whole enchilada when you have your new design.

    1. Oh, it’s completely up to you — you retain ownership of your writing at all times. Thanks for asking, though; clearly, I need to add something about this to the Contribute page.

      And that buttercream looks decadent and perfect. Yum.

    2. You won a wacky vintage cookbook in my latest contest (announced on Twitter). If you send me your mailing address, I’ll send it along soon. :-)
