Today I’m saying thanks for being a reader. It’s my fifth year of blogging, and I still love writing my weekly post on food writing. Most of all, I love hearing from you and having a conversation.
If you lurk, I’m thrilled to have you as a reader, regardless of whether you’ll ever leave a comment.
If you’re a regular commenter, I’m grateful when you take the time to type something, even if it’s “thanks.”
When you tell me you’re a long-time reader who has finally commented, I love that.
If you have corrected me or told me I’m flat out wrong, I’m thankful that you set me straight or offered a different perspective.
If you have tactfully emailed me about a typo, I am grateful, grateful, grateful. To those of you who see a typo and wonder if it would bother me if you told me so, my answer is: Are you kidding? I wish I could kiss you.
When you know more about a topic than I do and chime in with insightful comments and insider information, that is what makes my blog worthwhile and what elevates the conversation for everyone.
To my guest posters, thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and experience so freely with the food writing community.
And to those of you who share my posts on social media, thanks for increasing the chance of a conversation with new readers.
So thanks again for being here. I’ll see you next year in 2015. As always, we’ll discuss issues relevant to food writing with curiosity, laughter and our insatiable desire to understand the craft.
Happy New Year!
