Wow how time flies.
I always tell this story on the anniversary of the blog. It was only supposed to be an exercise for a food writing class I was taking. The assignment was to “set up a blog” and of course until anyone can actually FIND the blog, it sort of doesn’t exist.
But when I asked a couple of friends to check it out and comment to impress the teacher I got hooked.
I could write stuff and people could read it. And some even said they liked it.
The first ever blog post was this one: Can you really make pasta with a juicer?
It was quite an involved project because again, I wanted to impress the teacher and wanted the inaugural attempt to be about something interesting.
I’ll admit I have been slacking on my posts in the last while. Mostly because my computer is SO slow that I spend most of the blogging time yelling at it and threatening to toss it out the window. But I promise, I’m going to do something about that very soon.
That and of course life getting in the way. It’s also hard to keep coming up with interesting things to say.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I still love to know about, read about, grow, cook and eat food and then talk about all those same aspects of food. So hopefully I will get back to the writing about it part, real soon.
The other fun thing about blogs is that they are like having money in a good investment. Even if I don’t post very often anymore, the old posts somehow still find their way to people to read. In the four years since the blog started I have nearly 50000 hits!!
What’s really cool and completely by accident, is that is post will be the 400th post I have made, on the 4th anniversary.
