Today exactly three years ago I started this blog. It was not something I had thought about for a long time, but a decision to just give it a go to see where it would end. Well, it hasn’t ended yet and instead it has become difficult to imagine life without food blogging. Without exaggerating I can say that starting this blog has had quite an impact on my life. I’ve made many new friends, some of which I’ve had the pleasure to meet in real life as well, and the interaction with my readers and fellow food bloggers has been a huge inspiration. Who would’ve thought that I’d become half a chilehead or make my own Thai curry paste? Or that I’d buy a camera with a 50 mm lense and learn about ISO and aperture?
This is the 700th post on this blog, which means an average of 4 to 5 posts a week. 627 of those posts are recipes, all with step-by-step photos. I’ve seen many blogs coming and going, but I’m still determined to “share every single interesting experience with respect to food and wine”, as I promised to do in my first post. Since the start of the blog, the number of posts per month has never been lower than 11 and has been as high as 26.
The average number of daily views has been steadily increasing from 12 in December 2011 to 212 in December 2012 to 461 in December 2013 and over a 1000 in the last month! The increasing number of views is nice, but it is the interaction with you all that keeps me going. So please leave comments and ask questions! I especially love hearing about it if you have tried a recipe from my blog. That really makes my day.
Thank you for joining me on this continuing journey.
