Happy Blogoversary to Me!

Hey y’all this is post number 100 for me here at KC Lunch Spots. I feel some small sense of accomplishment because I post a lot more infrequently than other bloggers. And frankly back when I started I didn’t really expect anyone to come and read this thing. Basically it’s also my 2 year anniversary since I started January 1, 2007

So kudos and thanks to all of you, especially to my very first commenters Sassywho and the illustrious Meesha, known then only by the cryptic moniker, “Mike.” Scott from KC Perky helped me out with a lot of suggestions in the early days as well. I’d be remiss not to mention Tony who linked me twice using the exact same joke about “eating out.” Awesome!

I’ve gone from short, cautious snippets to more full fledged review-type posts in recent months. And I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way. If anything it has made me more appreciative of the work that real journalists have to do when writing about restaurants. It is very easy to forget details or just simply get the facts wrong. That why I’m a blogger, I can just chalk up my bullshittery to the sketchiness of the medium.

Anyhow, I just wanted to burn a post here thanking everyone who reads, those of you who comment, and most of all, you crazy people who actually take some stock in what I think. I know things aren’t perfect around here, but you guys make me want to keep trying.
