Sherman's Food Adventures: The Blog Turns 4!

The Blog Turns 4!

Oh my.  4 years already?  Except for a little blip for about 2 months, I've been blogging away everyday.  Boy, time flies when one is chewing...  In these 4 years, I've met some really cool people who share the same love of food as I do.  I've also learned a thing or two along the way.  Much like the last blogiversary, I intend to do this as long as I am able.  Life is definitely busy and food ain't cheap.  I will continue to maintain the original mandate of this blog - as a journal of my eating where my opinions are unbiased, good and bad.  I thank all the loyal followers because it would be lonely blogging to myself.  I never imagined that this little blog would actually have the impact it has had.  Thanks again for your support and as a little treat, I'm going to hold a draw for a $50.00 gift card to the restaurant of the winner's choice.  Just leave a comment with your first name and initial of your last.  I'll do the draw in a week's time. Cheers!

I've been having a lot of fun following your blog....it's now my go-to source for eating in Vancouver as I trust your reviews more than any I find on UrbanSpoon or Dinehere .. etc... You are usually right on the money and you have great instinct in weeding out the good from the bad. Happy Anniversary and thanks for all your hard work and dedication. I don't know how you manage to have the energy to write such an extensive daily blog while working, spending time with your family, being involved in sports, eating out at restaurants...etc.... you are truly a man with boundless energy!

John Nguyen said...

John N - Thanks for all your time and hard work! I read your blog almost everyday and I use it as a guide for when I dine out. I look forward to your next hidden gem.

Congrats!

Unknown said...

Hey Sherman big fan of your blog. One comment, I really hate the new mobile skin that you are using, it really mess up on my phone. Was running out and went to your site for ideas and all I got was a big list of like a ton of reviews one on top another. There is no link to go to website view as well. Very hard to use, the old skin was much better. Beside from that Congrads.

sam said...

Congrats Sherman! 4 years of eating and you've still got something interesting, humorous, and informative to say. Good for you!

A REALLY BIG thanks to everyone for their kind comments and encouragement. I am sincere when I say that it means a lot to me. I don't do this blog as a business nor for self-promotional purposes, it is for the love of eating and sharing my stories. It brings me joy that people can share in my passion.
