Today marks a milestone for Molly B and Me, our 400th post. We think you should help us celebrate by pouring yourself a nice, cold drink, sitting down in a comfy chair and reading each one.
Mostly, we just want to thank you for hanging out with us.
We launched this blog on August 31, 2011 with a 65 word entry about our turnip infested backyard patio garden. Since then, we’ve joined a CSA and let other people with greener thumbs and richer soil grow our vegetables.
And speaking of potatoes, the first recipe Molly posted may have been a little too far outside the box, but it taught us an important lesson in food blogging: people actually might attempt to make the recipes you post.
We haven’t made potato cookies since then, and we’re guessing you haven’t either.
We’ve written a post or two about our beloved Packers and I’ve enjoyed writing each one. Hilariously, the Packer post that has received the most hits so far is a story I wrote about the ladies of the Lombardi era.
The most popular post we have written among all 400, though, has nothing to do with the green and gold. It is a little piece we wrote about high school theatre and we’d like to thank all of our thespian friends and their fearless leader for that.
Some of my own favorite posts have been the spontaneous ones. I plastered “You are beautiful” signs all over my hometown one day and met a bunch of nice people doing it.
See there, we’ve walked you through 14 posts. You only have 386 more to go.
Thank you for your support of this project of ours, for reading our posts, sharing our blog and clicking on our ads. Last week, we also received our first check, a milestone we celebrated with dinner on my grandma’s china plates.
We’re on pace to earn about 25 cents for each blog post, which cracks us up. The real reward isn’t monetary, of course, it’s the joy we both feel from telling our stories, sharing our recipes and connecting with you.
