    Housekeeping 9.3.09

    Just wanted to pop in and say hi to everyone!  I hope your summers (and winters for one or two of us) have been spectacular and that you’re ready to transition into some cool weather foods…I certainly am! It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted with Housekeeping but thought it was time…

    1. As I mentioned last month, I’ve been working on a new BRC (Bonus Recipe Challenge) for September.  Please check back tomorrow for the big announcement! Sorry for the tease…
    2. Over the last 2 days, I have been through every single blog on the list and if you haven’t noticed already, the list today is considerably shorter than it was yesterday.  There were quite a few blogs on the list (too many to count) that had ZERO BB posts since the blog owners joined the group…so I want to say to those out there who are considering membership: Do not join if you do not think you can keep up with us. These empty blogs are a waste of time not only for me but for all of the active group members who enjoy perusing the list on posting days.
    3. On a brighter note, there are a good handful of members who have blogged every.single.recipe since they joined – some who have been with the group for over a year now. You know who you are and you are doing a fantastic job!!
    4. The Facebook group is still open to group members.  It’s been a little slow over there lately so let’s liven it up!  Check the sidebar for instructions on how to join.
    5. Comments? Questions?  Send me an email or post ’em here.

    1. Tara, I switched to WordPress, but still kept the same blog’s name. When you’re updating the members’ list, would you update my blog’s address? Thank you!! 🙂

    2. Hi Tara,

      I’m having some trouble with all my google accounts (blogger included) – I have Aug. recipes to post when I’m able to. Maybe I should consider switching to WordPress as well . . .
      Anyway, sorry for the delay!

    3. Tara – you are doing a great job maintaining this site and running it so efficiently as well. I slacked off terribly over the summer, I need to re-think how to approach the challenges over the hols. Luckily, I did August just before you cleaned up house!!!

    4. Where is the big announcement….don’t toy with us like this!!

    5. Hi Tara

      I saw that I’ve been removed from the list. I know I missed May-July, but I know I let you know in advance about May and then June and July just got away from me. I did make make the first August recipe and I’m making both of the ones for September – I even commented on the challenge reveal entry – and before that I don’t think I really missed any since I joined. I’m really trying to get back on the blogging horse, so can I please be included as a member again?

      Thank, Erica

    6. I took a blogging break when life got in the way. I see I was removed. If I decide to start cooking along again will I be able to apply for membership again?
