Wow. A whole year.
I never imagined it would be so much fun.
For sure, I never imagined I'd ever get any readers, other than the ones I would have to beg (or pay) to drop by. My mom and dad. My brother once in a while.
Huge props to Sam at Becks & Posh, though, for hosting my coming out party at her blog, as she has with so many other Bay Area food bloggers. I got a few tentative sniffs from folks that day as a result of her generous announcement (I remember Dr. Biggles leaving a comment for me that there wasn't enough meat, but ever since then, he and I have been pals. Meat or no.)
And then it just kept growing.
OMG! I'm a food blogger! People actually read this crap now and then.
I'm not an A-list blogger, and I'm not trying to be one. I'm not hugely popular. I'm just me.
But when I signed up for the Eat Local Challenge last year, I met more and more food bloggers, and we've mostly kept in touch ever since, either in person or completely cybernetically. That was really neat. I suspect that my idiotic quest for local salt vaulted me into some renown. OK. I can live with that. (But I've seriously *got* to find another prank to attempt!)
I've visited bloggers all over the world, and I've left comments for them. And it occasionally results in them paying a visit to I'm Mad and I Eat, which is cool.
There are so many other food bloggers I don't regularly visit yet, and of course, there are new bloggers every day. I've got to get out there.
It's just an amazing world.
Are you having as much fun as I am?
