My blog is going into the 5th grade. It's practically a tween. And I couldn't be prouder.
My first post on this blog was on August 1, 2007. It was a very different time than today, when "blog" was not a well known word at all. Basically, within a month or two of starting a blog I had probably "networked" with every single other food blogger out there. I may be exaggerating a bit, but compared to today, it was a very small world.
I am thankful that I started my blog when I did.This is partially because if I started it today, I am not sure if I would stand out. This isn't because I don't think I'm special, it's just that there are so MANY blogs now, and all of them are so beautiful. I mean, it's like flipping through an Anthropologie catalog when you visit some of the food blogs out there! It's inspiring, but as a newbie, I think I might have found it intimidating, as well.
