To all my hungry readers,
It’s officially been three years since my first post to The Vegetarian Ginger. It really doesn’t feel like that much time has passed, but when I look at some of my first posts I can see how long I’ve come (and how long I have to go).
There have been a couple of big moments in the past year. I think one of my favourites was just recently when the Koopa Shell Cake Pops made the front page of reddit. I got lots of people telling me they loved me, and one person who said that my boyfriend and I were “complete trash” for liking something so childish. Oh, the Internet. Always a thrill.
Another big moment for me was that I got some original recipes published by the CBC. I’ve been hoping to take my blogging and cooking into more career-focused areas and getting those published was a really great feeling.
There’s definitely still a lot I want to improve on. Frequency of posts, more informative nutritional charts, doing some giveaways…the next year has a lot in store. I also seem to be the only food blogger left on the face of the earth that doesn’t have Instagram, but at this point I really can’t be bothered. I know it would probably connect me with a ton more food bloggers and I could ultimately reach a wider audience, buuuut I’m also not feeling having one more platform to update.
I really appreciate everybody who takes the time to read my posts. I know a lot of them end up rambling on about something non-food related and by the time I’m done I have no idea what I’m putting up (sound familiar?) but it really does make me happy to know people are reading my weird little posts, cooking up some of my recipes and sharing their experiences with me.
Happy cooking, eating and falling asleep in assorted places around the house from food comas,
