Running on empty

 I've had this blog since 2009 and it was quite robust for a few years. Then one of my best feeder blogs -- by the dining critic for our local newspaper -- deleted links to other local food blogs on her website. My readership dropped way off, to the point where it's half or less of what it used to be.
Not having readers takes the joy out of maintaining a blog. Not to mention I do have a day job as a journalism professor, which keeps me very busy.
So I'm going to take a break from this for a while. If and when my interest and energy revive, I'll start up again sometime in the future.
It's been fun........

  1. Enjoy your sabbatical, Pama. I think you'll find it fun to just eat for the sake of *eating* again. I know I'll miss your insight and humor while you're away. I hope you'll pick up the again down the line. You do good stuff.

    All the best,
