I can hardly believe it has been 4 years since I started this blog. One day I started and just forgot to stop. I’m a little horrified that I’ve published over 1000 posts over 4 years. With around 250 views a day and over 1000 subscribers, I feel incredibly blessed to have an audience. It’s amazing how anyone can start something and put in the passion and man-hours and suddenly you are “a blogger”.
I’ve enjoyed using this blog as an excuse for adventure. I’ve eaten some amazing things (fish laap in Laos, mantis prawn in Borneo) and some gross things (bile in Vietnam). I’ve also enjoyed eating crickets, alpaca, snake, brains, eyes, and hearts.
I bought a DLSR and improved my photography, though I still (and probably always will) struggle with bad lighting.
I’ve explore new foods and ingredients, some of are now regulars in my kitchen like pulled pork, eggplant and millet. I now think nothing of attempting to recreate a restaurant dish at home. You do it once, you’ll do it again. There have been failures but also many successes. It’s these triumphs that keep me going. I have tried to inspire some of you to push yourselves too by starting up Our Growing Edge, a monthly link up party for adventurous foodies.
I’ve met some kindred spirits online and in real life. You know who you are. So to those that have been around for a while or just started reading, sincerely, thank you.
It’s not a proper birthday without presents, so over the next week, I’ll be announcing some delicious giveaways, so watch this space!
