State of the Blog

If I judge my calendar correctly and my memory serves me well then it was 9 years ago today that I first posted to this blog. A lot has happened since then. I've had many great meals at many places, and maybe a few so-so meals. I've been graciously invited to many events and have got to know my way around the county better and have gotten to know a lot of people. And I've taken thousands of photos. Oh, and because of this blog I have started an effort to bring back the Naugles chain.

There isn't the same attention given to personal food blogs now as there used to be. Most of that attention has shifted to the Yelp juggernaut. But that doesn't change the fact that I am still on a mission to try all the Mexican food in the county that I can. That will still be happening and I'll still be taking photos, tweeting a lot of them, posting most to flickr, mentioning some on the Facebook page, and posting to the blog from time to time. The posts now will have more of an emphasis on photos and less of a focus on writing, which will make this blog what it was originally intended to be: a photo record of my quest. I still offer and pay $10 for each published guest review, so if you want to write up a place let me know. Amazingly, nine years into this there are still so many places I want to try and so many places I want to get back to. It's like the horizon keeps stretching out ahead of me, and that's a good thing. Thanks for joining me on this journey.

Here's a photo of the carnitas platter I got from George's Mexican Food in Huntington Beach at lunchtime today:
