Sherman's Food Adventures: Blog Turns 5!

Blog Turns 5!

Honestly, I can't believe it.  Really!  5 years! (I originally posted 6 years...  see how tired I am...  that's my daughter's age! Thanks Steve B!)  What started out as nothing more than a little hobby taking pictures with my Blackberry (yes, I did have one), we now have a blog that has grown organically into an obsession.  I still do it in addition to my day job and I really don't make much money from the advertisements.  Hence, it was and will always be a personal blog about what I eat.  Once again, I'm not sure how long this will go, but I'll do it as long as I still enjoy it.  Thanks again for all my friends and family who have supported and eaten with me.  Also, I can't thank enough all the people who read my blog and leave thoughtful comments.  So once again, I'll have a draw for a $50.00 gift certificate.  If you want to enter, just leave a comment with your first initial and last name.  I will draw a winner in a week's time.

Congratulations on your 5th anniversary (looks like you're 1 year ahead of yourself)
Thank you for your many tips on where to find the best of so many different foods.

I sometimes refer to food blogs as food porn. I imagine myself tasting the flavours, I read it in secret (sometimes with shame), I enjoy the visual experience... And it's quite enjoyable overall! Thanks for introducing me to your world, as well as the many places to eat in our fair city!

J Home. You've been a big influence on us over the last 5 years. I can hardly believe it's been that long.... it just seems like yesterday I was introduced to your blog by a mutual friend. I am so happy your hobby was enjoyable enough for you to continue and grow for 6 whole years. I hope there will be many more to come! Congratulations to you, your family and your many faithful dining partners.

I live in Campbell River and read your blog every single day. As you can imagine we don't have nearly the variety of restaurants as you do in Vancouver so I enjoy looking at the photos and dreaming of which place I will visit next time I visit the city. Maybe someday you will reveal how you manage to post a new restaurant review every single day. It's amazing! Do you ever eat at home? Congratulations on reaching 5 years and keep up the good work of eating out on behalf of all of us.
