Time to move on

Sometimes I struggle moving on. Having a hard time letting go of something that was once so loved and so well maintained. But as with all things in life, sometimes it is best to move on and start something new. And that is why today I present this brand new blog. Fun, food and travels. Maybe not a very original name, but it pretty much sums up what you will find here.

I could have build further on In Simone’s Kitchen which is the blog I am stopping with right now. I could have done that, but for some reason it just didn’t click. Everytime I wrote a new blogpost 2 people read it. While the older posts are still getting a lot of traffic. But that is not what you want right? Yes, sure it helps to have a few golden oldies, but if no one is interested in the new content you create what is the point? I previously thought about stopping with In Simone’s Kitchen and started a new one but was limiting myself with the content. Limits and me just don’t work together. 🙂

Three to one

In Dutch I maintain a crazy number of three different blogs. I wanted to combine all those three into one here. Which means you will find a variety of topics here. And I will not be limiting myself to anything. So instead of starting three different ones, it will just be this one. It might not be attracting any traffic at all or it might be hugely popular. In any case it will be uniquely mine…

So welcome here and to celebrate I offer you a piece of this delicious chocolate bundt cake with hazelnuts and almonds! Enjoy and hope to see you again someday! (I’ll be working on some options to subscribe. For now the facebook page is your best bet. Name will be changed soon!)

I used a 3 liter bundt tin for this cake. Letting the cake cool before turning out is essential to getting it out in one piece! Do not be too impatient!
