4 Year Bloggy Birthday


Four years ago today I sat down at my computer, bought the domain name everydayfoodie.ca, and decided that I was going to start a blog and commit to it.  I had started a few blogs prior to this one, and had never kept up with them, but I knew this would be different.  I chose to blog about what I was interested in and passionate about, a topic that allowed me to be creative and adventurous.  I began blogging about every single thing that I ate, and eventually it morphed into less of a daily food log, and more of a food/life journal; I began creating recipes and documenting dinner parties.

Blogs like birthday cakes too!
Cake recipe here (I "thirded" the recipe)
In the past four years I have eaten such a wide variety of foods, and have tried hundreds of new recipes.  I've documented my foodie adventures in other countries and cities.  I've made online friends through blogging, and have met many of them.  I traveled to San Fransisco to join other food bloggers at a festival, have been interviewed for a magazine, and got the opportunity to interview one of my favourite Food Network personalities.  It has been a crazy adventure and I don't plan on it ending any time soon.

I appreciate my readers.  Some of you have been around since the beginning, others are new to everydayfoodieI'd love to get to know you a bit more, so if you feel so inclined, please leave a comment below (everyone can comment even without an account - just click anonymous and leave your name in the body of the comment if you wish).

I'd love to know ...
