After reading this post on Jezebel about The New Decornographers, I think it's important to remember the following:
1) Keeping up a blog is HARD. Especially when life hits. Sometimes, there are going to be lulls in posts- but it doesn't mean that the person's gone, just that something besides The Internets happened that day. Today, Mr. O and I went on a long walk in the last of the cool rainy weather, so I didn't post anything substantial towards my project. However, I did see entire families of deer along the way, and that was way better than writing a post about rearranging your spices. Sorry, blogosphere.
2) I need to keep in mind for myself, in the upcoming weeks, that the strategies for keeping kitchens streamlined is PRECISELY to create less work in the long run. I am a lazy, lazy person and will attempt to give shortcuts and the long version, if it doesn't take too long to type up. My photos are the results of 50-100 pictures out of camera and a crapton of overediting. And my cleaning techniques? 90% of the time I go the lazy route. More time for sleeping, yes?
3) Jezebel rocks. Seriously, go read it sometime. It's a nice reality check.
