A year ago today, I published my very first post. 79 entries later and This Little Piglet is still pushing me to preserve my most memorable food experiences, not only for my small, but devoted community of readers, but for myself as well. Thanks to this little food blog, I now know I'll never forget that bowl of seafood stew I had in Yachats, Oregon last summer or my very first slice of pizza at Di Fara. And I think that's pretty cool.
To celebrate one year of This Little Piglet, I'm going to steal an idea from Luisa, one of my favorite food bloggers. On the one year anniversary of her blog, she asked all her readers to post a comment. Today, I'm asking all of you to do the same.
Whether you're my friend, a relative, or someone who just pops by every now and then, I'd love to hear from you. You don't have to write much -- even a quick hello will do. Take it from me: There is nothing better than getting feedback on your posts. Whether it's advice on how to liven up a recipe, or a recommendation for a place to try or even a virtual pat on the back for a post well done, it's that sharing of ideas and similar appreciation for food that makes this blogging thing so worthwhile.
Plus, I can't help but be curious about all of you. What is is that you like about This Little Piglet and what makes you keep coming back? And for those of you who regularly comment, I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thanks. There are many days when I don't have the energy (or time) to write another post, but your kind words and encouragement keep me typing.
Here's to another year full of homemade bread, grandma's crumb cake, pink peppercorn ice cream, Brazilian barbecues, food-filled trips, and much, much more.
