a new and messy beginning

Good morning! Or evening, or November, depending on where you live.

This is actually the reincarnation of my old blog. I used Google Blogger, which is great if you’re just starting out, but after four years doing the blogging thing, I was ready for the next step: WordPress. The two of them dominate the blogging scene, and WordPress holds reign over the professional and business blogosphere, while Blogger is still a popular choice for individuals.

Also, WordPress is a lot f***in harder to set up than Blogger. I don’t even remember half of what I did to get here, but if it weren’t for Laughing Squid’s amazing hosting and help, I would’ve been an retiree for sure.

I have a tendency towards self-deprecation, hence the title of the blog, and an even stronger tendency towards tripping over my own feet…hence the blog title. I once put sour cream and oats on my face hoping to clear up my acne. Turns out that doesn’t work so well. I once cracked my skull a little walking into the corner of a brick wall because I wasn’t looking. It really didn’t hurt. I once, no…thrice, set off my apartment’s smoke detector making croissants (though in one of those instances, I was actually making Dutch babies.) It’ll be a miracle if I make it to Christmas without setting off the alarm in my current apartment.

And all that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

In my first blogging life, the majority of my posts were about mistakes. I had no recipes to show for it, too. But since my first steps, I’ve learned a thing or two, and this blog is the all-growed-up incarnation of my adventures as a Kitchen Klutz. There will be recipes, attached to many an entertaining clumsy story. There will be useful tips based on life experience. And because I can’t seem to let go of my precious D3100 (I call it Bink), there will be photos.

For more information about me specifically, check out the page coincidentally titled “about the klutz” at the top.

Y’all come back now, y’ hear?
