When I eventually sorted through my tornado of thoughts and emotions and decided to leave graduate school to blog full-time, I felt a mixture of nervousness and excitement. I was leaving behind the promise of a successful career and substantial paycheck in the organic chemistry and pharmaceutical world… To step into the unknown.
At that time, Amy’s Healthy Baking hadn’t brought in a single penny. It was still a side hobby, something I started in my spare time to get me out of my baking rut and try new things.
I didn’t know why full-time blogging felt like the right thing to do… But I knew it felt like something I couldn’t not do.
So I took the first step. I left chemistry. I turned to baking.
Now, just a few years later… I’ve published a cookbook, appeared on live TV, traveled around the country, hired a team (hi ladies!), and even bought a house with the income I’ve earned from Amy’s Healthy Baking.
And I’m incredibly grateful for the role you’ve played in that! Your support for my recipes, how you’ve made them and shared your pictures with me on Instagram, how you gave the links to my recipes to your family and friends, how you’ve simply browsed around my blog and read all of my stories…
Those small actions all add up and have allowed me to keep blogging as my full-time job.
So to say thank you, I’m putting the spotlight back on you today! Here are some of the recipes that you’ve tried and pictures that you’ve shared on Instagram. I truly appreciate each and every time you do that; it really means the world to me! ♡
