Time to say goodbye...

It's with a heavy heart that I have decided to retire Rebecca Bakes Cakes.  Life has changed so much in the 5 years since I started blogging & I just can't devote the time I would like to baking & writing.  So rather than being continually tinged with the guilt that it's been 3 months (who am I kidding, 6 months!) since I last posted, I thought it best to call time.

I'm very proud of what I created & it stands as record of a fabulous chapter of my life.  I still have ambition of one day combining all 52 recipes from my year of cake into a cookery book, I guess never say never!  If you want a trip down memory lane you can see the round up here.  I'd love to hear if you had any favourites?  Other highlights for me included breaking into the ebuzzing top 100 food blogs, albeit for one month only!  I was also featured in the local paper, attended blogger events & invited to host competitions, all  things I would never have experienced without the blog.

I want to say thanks to you readers for your support & comments over the last 5 years.  When I started out, it was very much a personal challenge, but I think I'd be wrong to say that it didn't matter if nobody read it other than my mum!  It's only human nature to want people to like what you do, so the fact that you read my posts, commented & shared meant an awful lot to me.

Don't worry though, I still love a good challenge & in 2015 I'll be learning to dive & training for my first triathlon (super sprint distance only, lets not get carried away!)  Who knows I might be back with something new :-)

But for now, after...

Oh no, to leave a blog in January, I was hoping to read so much more! I totally respect your decision though.
