Anyway, the film tells the true tale of Julie, who started a blog detailing her plot to make all 536 recipes, in Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, within 1 year.

So it got me thinking, why did I start this blog? It was much harder to articulate than i imagined; it is more than knowing that you just want something, but actually knowing why. Here are the reasons i came up with.
- I wanted somewhere to catalogue all my favourite things; as mentioned in previous posts, ahem, post.
- I wanted a project. After 16 years of schooling im not quite ready to give those up just yet. And i’ve found i quite enjoy writing…a blog might ensure i actually do so every once in a while.
- And I wanted a challenge. I think of myself as a private person and to share with people who i do not know, in an often fickle platform, my words forever stuck in cyberspace for all eternity is very daunting. But im going to do it anyway.
This is Julie’s blog: The Julie/Julia Project. Well, the one before she was famous.
