Now that I’m not pressured to post daily (even though I still do -for the moment, as I take the time to adjust. Force of habit, I guess) to retain my weekly hits & ranking on Topblogs, I have more time on my hands to enjoy the simplest things.
You won’t believe how much time & effort I put in coming up with a single post. First, I edit all my pictures, and you know how many pictures I have in a post right? Yeah, yeah, I know they’re still crappy photos. But imagine how much crappier they’d turn out if I didn’t edit! And my photos range from 30-40 per post! :P Factor in my uber slow internet connection. It takes at least 2-3 hours just to make my photos presentable & then upload them to my blog post.
Then, I research the price points & incorporate it to my post. That’s another 30 minutes to an hour depending on how many food pics I share with you. I know I don’t have to do it, but I like to think of it as added service to you, my dear readers. So you know how much each dish is. I know I do when I read other people’s blogs so I have an idea for my budget, should I visit the place.
Next is the content. I may not have a lengthy post (more photos, less words) but it’s takes a certain level of creativeness to start off a blog post, and enough imagination to carry it through so I don’t bore you. And that it doesn’t become just another impersonal food blog.
You see, I believe that what SSEN is “selling” is not just the food, but the experience & discovery of The GOppets. Which I believe is why my blog endears itself to you, my valued readers. Without our experience as a family, our anecdotes & humorous incidents, our adventures & misadventures, my blog will just be another menu with food pictures -just lengthier. Don’t you agree?
Anyway, going back to having more time on my hands. Now that I don’t have a daily grind so to speak, I am able to watch series online uninterrupted. I don’t have to worry that I have to finish posts & edit photos (which are so time consuming, believe me) right away because I don’t have to follow my self-imposed deadline anymore & post only when I want. I am free!
One series I have come to love is ONCE UPON A TIME from ABC network. I guess it’s the child in me. I really love fairy tales and happy ever afters. And this fairy tale has twists and turns that will keep you in suspense! Every episode is another storybook character in Storybrooke (yes, that’s the name of the town filled with storybook characters and linked stories) waiting to be rediscovered! <3
Once Upon a Time is an American fairy tale drama series that takes place in the fictional seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine, whose residents are actually characters from various fairy tales transported to the “real world” town and robbed of their real memories by a powerful curse from the evil queen. Since then, and becuas elf its successful airing, a spin-off series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland consisting of 13 episodes premiered on October 10, 2013 and concluded on April 3, 2014.
What’s super cute about it is that the main characters Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White) and Josh Dallas (Prince Charming) are really husband & wife! <3 They met on the set, fell in love, got married, got pregnant.. and wrote the pregnancy into the story line! You know I’m a sucker for romance so the more I got kilig with this series & I’ve been watching it non-stop!
Because I love you guys so much, I am sharing this with you. Where you can actually WATCH it online for FREE! My kids are really internet savvy. They teach me everything there is to know, and this is one of those things.
