So after a long and fun journey I have decided to retire Let Them Eat Cake. It was a difficult decision to make. When I started the blog my intention was to become a pastry chef. I worked hard and graduated at the top of my class. I quickly found a job and continued working in the industry for 3 years.
I soon realized that although I loved the work, there were also many bad and unchangeable facts. After a really bad bought of eating something really bad and working through my illness because I could not afford take off I left the food industry and returned to my past career as an editor and copy writer.
Once again I have a steady paycheck, decent money, and healthcare, but I still didn’t feel that I was reaching my potential. Misusing or, even worse not using, your talents to it’s full potential to me is the 8th Deadly Sin. Recently when Patch.com listed a posting in search of a freelance Restaurant Reviewer in the Chestnut Hill and Plymouth-Whitemarsh area I applied and received the beat.
Now I am reinventing myself for the umpteenth time (until I get it right). I decided to combine my two loves: writing and food. I refuse to give up until I get it right.
