I Eat Therefore I Am is 5 years old today.
I can't believe that this food blog is 5 years old. If 1 human year equals 7 dog years, I'm going to declare that 1 human year equals 14 blog years. In the world of the fast ever changing Internet, to reach 5 years on this blog is quite an achievement I think. I never ever thought it would last this long. It was all just going to be a bit of fun that I would get bored of quite quickly.
Back in February of 2006, my friends encouraged me to write a blog as I was always telling them my opinions on everything. Initially I was writing about interesting technology articles but it slowly morphed into a lot of posts about food. The turning point was when Alan from Photo Finish, who I met through my other blog, suggested that we start a group blog, which became I Eat Therefore I Am on July 29th 2006. Slowly over time, the other contributors stopped posting, but I kept going. The rest, as they say, is history.
There have been highs and low through the time, and I must admit that I wanted to stop during a few periods in time as I was losing motivation. However, for whatever reasons, I kept going and currently really enjoy writing this blog. This blog has given me an outlet to voice a lot of my opinions, and fortunately, some people even read and enjoy it. Not everyone agrees with what I say, nor should you have to. I've had lots of heated discussions about a lot of issues, but that just adds to the fun. I have been on a lot of food adventures and this food blog has enabled me to go to even more things that I may not have had the chance to experience or have heard about. I've met so many wonderful people through this blog, both in the online world and in real life. We all enjoy talking about some aspect of food, which has acted as a catalyst to further solidify some relationships. I can now count numerous people who I met through the blog as good friends.
To celebrate this occasion, I'm posting a beautiful drool worthy photo of a delicious Chocolate Cake with Salted Peanut Caramel topping. I think this cake sums up this blog, simple and sweet.
