Gone But Not Forgotten

I’ve thought a lot about writing this post.

I haven’t posted on here for over 6 months. Things all got a bit much and days turned into weeks, which turned into, well, 6 months.

I started putting so much pressure on myself to post that it wasn’t enjoyable anymore, it was a chore.

2014 was a busy year for me; the blog started taking off, I had a new job, I was planning our wedding, I started a new business, and I had a bad injury to get over. So blogging just fell by the wayside a little bit and before I knew it, it felt like it was too late. Like when you mean to text someone back for something important, but something comes up and you forget, and then time goes by and you feel like too much has passed, you know what I mean?

But, unbelievably, people are still reading what I wrote last year! People are still visiting, liking, following and commenting! And that’s what has really spurred me on to write this post.

So. Things are going to be changing around here, for the better I hope.

I’m still going to be writing posts, not because I have to, but because I WANT to. I’m not going to pressure myself into posting X amount of posts per week, and I’m not going to pigeon-hole myself into JUST baking, beauty or whatever. Yes, this was mainly a baking blog, and you’ll still see some great recipes on here, but going forward, I’m going to post about the things I love, as and when I want to.

I hope that’s ok with you guys and I’m looking forward to continuing this journey with you!

Follow me?

Firstly, I want to say a massive THANK YOU to all of my lovely followers so far! You make me smile with your comments and I love find and reading new blogs of yours in return.

I’ve recently made the decision to move to a self-hosted website (my own site – yay!) which you can find at www.eatsleepbakerepeat.com. Click on the link, come over and have a look. It’s fully functional but needs a little more work on it’s appearance… It’s almost there though!

The new website is EXACTLY THE SAME as the old one, for all of you current followers. Except, it’s not got “wordpress” in the title. It’s still me, still eating, still baking, still… ahh you get the message!

There won’t be any more posts on this current wordpress site, they’ll all be on the new one. But no fear, everyone who currently follows this blog, either by email, Bloglovin, or WordPress, has been transferred over. So you don’t need to do ANYTHING.

Just remember, the new site address is different if you ever type it in.

And for anyone new who happens upon this post, come and see me on my new site!

So thanks, and I’ll see you on the other side!!

The Big Cake Show, Exeter

20140318-201918.jpg

I’m very excited to have been invited to a number of events over the next month, which I will be telling you about before I go, then posting about anything interesting I find there afterwards.

The first of these is The Big Cake Show, which is being held at the Westpoint Exhibition Centre between 28th-30th March. It’s the biggest baking and cake show to ever have been held in South West England and features demonstrations from stars such as Phil Vickery, Mich Turner, Paul Hollywood and… MARY BERRY! *screams*

There are classroom style demonstrations where you can learn to perfect lots of varied skills such as scone and jam making, macaroons, cupcake and cake icing and much more. There are even special classes for kids!

To top it off, there are interactive competitions, stalls to buy some treats from, and an author’s corner where you can meet the stars and get your book signed.

Tickets are still available, and at only £12 for an adult day ticket they’re a complete bargain! Why not treat your mum for Mother’s Day?

You can visit the website here.

I can’t wait to go and hopefully will come back with lots of ideas for new and exciting bakes.

Are you going to this show or any of the others coming up?
