I have been blogging since the spring of 2005.  I started "Busy Nothings" as a place for me to write about anything I found interesting.  I expressed my views on emoticons, listed the celebrity guests I would invite to a dinner party, and published photos of my travels.  The posts were typically short and sweet and funny.  Over the years, I have become more thoughtful and long-winded, and occasionally, I have used my blog to surreptitiously teach my readers about user experience.

I've been blogging about food almost as long as I've been blogging random musings.  A few months after "Busy Nothings," I created a blog devoted to food, especially chocolate.
