Blogversary...Blogirthday... It's been a year

Hi! I'm Marc, and I want to teach you some basic techniques while giving you the confidence and inspiration to cook without recipes too!

Well, it snuck right past me, but as it turns out, last Monday was the first anniversary of this blog. Sure, there were a few orphan posts predating March 9th, 2008, but that was when I resolved to turn this blog into something more than a haphazard repository of my culinary pontifications.

As such (and because it's my birthday), I'm headed to New Orleans for a few days of rain and relaxation. Fear not though, I've queued up posts for each day that I'm gone so you don't get bored. I've also gathered a few stats for all you numbers junkies.

There have been 241 posts since this blog went live; that's about 1 post every 1.5 days. You've commented on those posts 3,373 times; about 14 comments per post. Best of all, over a quarter million of you have felt it worth while to check out this blog, and considering that 20% of that number have come by in the past month, I have big hopes for the future:-)

Thanks for making this such a fun endeavor!
