I just had my annual blog review with my "boss", and it was not good. Although the quality of my posts were acceptable, the quantity was lacking. I have officially been placed on a corrective action plan. Which is totally ridiculous, considering I don’t get paid to write this blog. I’m so ticked off; you’ve got to hear how stupid this plan is.
According to Mr. Ballbreaker (pretty much my alter ego) my blog was good, but I lacked consistency and quantity. Ideally I should have been posting one blog a week. I pled my case, I have a life, I have a full time job, and a fledgling spice business. I even played the "just bought a new house card", but it all fell on deaf ears. The new target for 2013 is one blog post a week, if I want to stretch for the optimal goal I need to post every 5 days. Thanks, Mr. BB, I guess sleep and free time are highly overrated.

Oh and get this, to meet my optimal target my blog must also include the addition of video posts. I now have to shoot at least 4 videos this year. Is he freaking kidding?? I don’t know jack squat about shooting and editing videos. Does anyone remember the spatchcock chicken video? My wife and sister both said it was "serial killer" creepy. I don’t know what I’m going to do; I guess I’ll figure it out.
It looks like I’ve got a lot of work to do this year, but I’m up for it. Weekly posts, videos, photo staging. I almost forgot, I need to grill more. Cooking pork butt for 12 hours is great, but it’s like watching grass grow, slow and boring. You know, for a non-paying job this is turning out to be a lot of work. Like Mr. BB said, “just cause you’re doing it for fun doesn’t mean you can do it half-assed.”
