Why do I post photos of what I cook? I know that sharing casual food photos has become an β€œuncool” use of the internet.

I post these photos to remind myself that I rewrote the story I used to believe, the story that I can’t cook. I can: here is the evidence.

@cygnoir Thanks! To be fair, yours sounds closer to a human compared to my self-help book sales pitch. πŸ˜…

@vasta Seconded. I see blogging as a way to show other people the things you find beautiful, interesting, or even distressing about this world. You put your message in a bottle and hope it finds a friendly shore.
