So hard to believe it has already been six years, since I took those food writing classes, on those damp Winter nights back in 2011.
This blog was a class assignment. I don’t know if any of you know this, other than blog writing people, that things that are posted on the internet, don’t really exist until you tell someone to look at them.

Sure, someone might randomly come across your post, but even that is unlikely unless you somehow make it known to any search engine. That’s why “tagging” is important or attaching it to thing like Facebook or Twitter. So people can even know it’s there.
There are many tactics on how to get more traffic to your blog, like going to other like-minded blogs and “liking” stuff or commenting. Then the other people who look at that blog see you and might want to check out what your blog is…..and so on and so on.
That’s why I say having a blog is kind of like having a bank account that you don’t really touch but it keeps getting interest.
In the last few years, life has gotten in the way of me being able to add and offer up things to the blog on a regular basis, yet every day, someone, somewhere, somehow takes a look at one or more of my posts.
That’s really cool.
Thank you for all the support over the last six years! I wish I could promise to “get back at it” but we do the best we can with what we’ve got!
