While I loved blogging, somewhere along the way I got a little too into doing sponsored posts and took on a little more than I could enjoy. The site moved away from who Justin and I were at heart become more business than fun. Over the last five years we've realized that we love blogging but we wanted something that was a more authentic version of us- our recipes, our travel, our lives and some sponsored content thrown in as well.
In early 2015, I attended Food Blog Forum in Orlando and felt completely re-energized to find our blogging voice and move in a different direction then we had been. I had grand plans of a site redesign, new name and new post ideas- by the way I was three months pregnant at the time and had no idea that I would soon loose all motivation to do anything but watch Netflix and pin nursery ideas. So I took a little blogging break.
Due to end of the school year craziness (I'm a full time teacher), summer travel, some minor pregnancy complications, the start of the school year, the birth of our son, Easton, in October, life with a newborn and returning to work full time last month that little break became a year. I am starting to feel like I am ready blog again and so Tobins' Tastes has been born.
I'm hoping this can evolve into a place where Justin and I share our love of food, travel, photography, Disney, Easton and life in general. Couponing & Cooking still exists and the posts will be there for the foreseeable future for you to revisit when needed but I'm looking forward to a new start!
