Sherman's Food Adventures: This Blog is 10 Years Old!

This Blog is 10 Years Old!

A decade.  Can you believe it?  I surely can't.  Over the last 10 years, I've had my fair share of delicious food and well, not-so-delicious food.  I try to say it as it is without being an a-hole about it.  Sure, there are those who say I'm not critical enough and those who say I'm too critical.  Well, we can't please everyone right?  Besides, I'm not in it to please anyone but myself really.  So in the words of Frank Sinatra, "I did it my way"!  I really appreciate the friends I've met along the way as we've shared food and many laughs.  Am I going to do this for another 10 years?  To be honest, probably not.  In fact, my dedication to the blog has been waning.  I will continue posting as much as I can, it might not be as frequent as every other day though.  I am excited about my Japan trip in 2020 as well as a road trip/possible cruise in 2019, so there will be plenty of content I want to share with you.  But for now, I'd like to celebrate 10 years with another giveaway for a $100.00 GC to a restaurant of your choice.  Just leave a short comment (doesn't have to be nice...  LOL) and your first name and last initial.  Winner will be announced on November 8th.

Sherman you should do a fan meet up! Maybe meeting some fans in person will rekindle your passion for the blog.

Congratulations on 10 years! For most of that time I have been relying on you for recommendations and you've never steered me wrong. For the record, I think your critiques are neither too light nor too heavy handed.

Congrats on the 10 years Sherman. This blog is the only food blog I go to. I understand enthusiasm declines after a while, especially after 10 years, but know that your blog has influenced diners on where to spend their hard earned money more wisely.

Love reading your blog whether you post everyday, every other day or whenever you get the chance. I’ve discovered many new restaurants thanks to this blog. I look forward to all your future posts. P.S. you really make me want to take a cruise just for the food.

Happy 10th

I’ve been quietly reading your food blog for nearly that long, maybe more through my wife. I’ve always imagine being apart of your group, wondering what pseudonym I’d be given; my wife says Fozzy Bear (but you already have a bear?). LOL. My only “complaint” is that because of your blog, my wife keeps pestering my about taking a cruise. LOL

Wishing you the energy to keep your blog going for many more years.

Happy 10th anniversary! I'm not entirely sure exactly when I found your blog, but the earliest memory of it is in late 2009 and I've been coming back since then! (Your blog just has a nice calming feel to it; I like to read it before bed sometimes.) Thank you for all the informative reviews and hope to read more from you in the coming years!
