Reclaiming My Blog

Inspired by the great words of Auntie Maxine, I declare today, that I am RECLAIMING MY BLOG. To say that I have had a love hate relationship with consistency on the blog this year is an understatement. 2017 launched with so many competing priorities that it has been difficult to give everything the attention it needs.

 

 

As a result MATD unfortunately, has been a bit neglected over the last few months but it has never left my heart. I am always thinking of new ways to offer more value to those of you subscribers but as the ideas flow in I sometimes get overwhelmed with the load of work that accompanies it. I have to also confess that the time away has also driven a bit of anxiety and insecurity about where my blog is compared to where I think it should be. I had some one-on-one convos with other entrepreneur friends who said these feelings were normal and apparently what I had signed up for when I decided to become a solopreneur. I don’t know honey, that must have been in the fine print.
Regardless, taking some time away has allowed me to focus in on where I want to take the blog which will involve a visual refresh, some narrowing of content as well as some new perks for loyal subscribers. I’ll talk to you more about the details of the changes over the next few weeks but just know that I am still here, not perfect, but still fighting the good fight.

Summer Watermelon


As a matter of fact, the other day I was testing out new recipes and decided I would share one of them with you to get things back rolling. Summer is my favorite season for many reasons but one of those reasons is that its peak season for watermelon. Since I was a kid I haven’t been able to resist a big ole slice of juicy watermelon. Today isn’t any different, only now I try to jazz it up in recipes like this delicious watermelon salsa. It is so refreshing and light that it disappears almost as quickly as you put it down.
Once you get past cutting through the mammoth fruit the rest is easy-peasy. Just chop up a few simple ingredients: cilantro, jalapeno, red onion and toss with honey and lime and you will be introducing your taste buds to your new summer snack.
Don’t wait too long to give this recipe a try, you definitely want to do it now that watermelon are in their prime because peak season ends at the end of August. Go ahead and check out the recipe below and don’t forget to tag @MeikoAndTheDish on social media.

  1. Not only am I digging this watermelon salsa, I feel what you said about reclaiming your blog! I have a consistency issue on my blog too as I’ve been dealing with some health concerns, work, etc. etc. It’s always something, right? Anyway, I cannot wait to try this salsa! Love it! 🙂

    1. Yes always something. I’m glad to know there are others out there that can feel my pain. LOL. Blessings my friend.

  2. Your photos are always so pretty and this salsa looks yummy. My husband doesn’t like watermelon, which means…more for me! 🙂
