The End

Yes folks, this is the last post on the Princess and the Recipe. After two years, I just don't have the time any more, and have decided to focus on other projects.

I've come a long way since I first started the blog. It all started when I was living in Hong Kong and, with a miniscule kitchen and more restaurants than you could shake a stick at, I was eating out more than ever before. I started blogging to keep a record for myself of all the exciting new places I was eating. Soon though, people started to read what I was writing, I got comments and made friends. On my move back to the UK I kept it up, and things got even better as I met other bloggers (in real life!), got together for Dine with Dos Hermanos, disastrous food quizzes and pigouts.

I began to love writing so much that in January of last year I quit my job to study for a journalism diploma. Since then, I have been getting work experience and writing freelance. Slowly but surely, things are coming together, my portfolio of published pieces is growing and I am getting more and more work.

The more I write for a living though, the more the blog suffers. As a lot of you know, blogging takes time, love and effort. For me, it has run its course. I've discovered a whole new career and way of life, plus of course many good friends who I am sure I will still be feasting with on a regular basis. So, thanks for reading, and here's to the next chapter!
