4KCBWDAY3: Delicious information delivery
It's infographic day this blog week. This was a very broad starting point, and evoked a lot of wild brainstorming on my part. I had a lot of fun ideas, but most of them were slashed by the practical limitations of this being the middle of a week that feels like a particularly chaotic swirl of stress, deadlines, meetings, and plans made and then broken. Nothing serious, just enough accumulation of little things to make a nit-picky person like me nervous.
Thankfully, I have implemented a very powerful means of combating this moment in the week: baked goods. Almost all of my 'Cubicle kitchen' recipe posts come from the treats I bring each Wednesday to a coffee klatch with co-workers. The hit of caffeine, sugar, camaraderie, and opportunity to get at least one row of knitting done at the same time is just what I need to power me through to the remaining days until the weekend.
It's been nearly two years since I started this job, and bringing in baked goods has been a part of my repertoire from almost the very beginning. It didn't start out as something I did every week, and I didn't regularly blog about them until last year, but I have a pretty good record of my recipes thanks to this blog. So I thought I would collate some of that into today's infographic. Here's a breakdown of the baked goods, by type, which I have brought into work:
homemade marshmallows, I just had no idea how to categorize any other way. Pie only barely made it onto the radar in the past few weeks. But I hope to even the score a little in the future.
Speaking of the future, I also hope to try my hand at more infographics and other fun blogging tricks like widgets. But like the manatee that I am, I'll float my way over to them slowly.
