Wow. What a Terrific Year!

by Matt on December 17, 2006



  Around this time last December I decided to get off my butt and start a blog. I had some goofy ideas,  a camera, and way too much time on my hands and it seemed like a great idea.

It’s been the best thing I’ve ever done.

A year later I find myself loving and enjoying it more than I ever thought possible.

I want to say thank you.

Thank you to those of you who have read mattbites and left comments, emails and happy wishes. Thank you to my fellow food bloggers who inspire me and welcomed me into their corner of cyberspace, and thank you, the readers, who actually try to comprehend the ramblings contained here. I realize there are thousands upon thousands of blogs out there and I’m honestly humbled that you take the time to read mine.

I know some talk about the impersonal nature of cyberspace, but I say hogwash. I’ve met some of the most amazing people through mattbites and I’m hoping I continue to make these connections in the future.

To David, Aun and Melissa–I can’t even put into words how much you guys mean to me. You three are my idols on so many levels.

And thanks to my partner Adam, who has given me the love, space and encouragement to be as creative as I can be. No one could ever ask nor find someone better to share their lives with. I’m blessed.

From the bottom of my heart – happy holidays and thank you.

Now let’s eat!
