Well, well, well…
Happy Birthday to the Feisty Foodie!!!
Wait, what’s that…?
SO. The Feisty Foodie is officially 3 years old today. It was three years ago today that I sat and contemplated the names I could give myself. I’d been food blogging for a year or so on and off before that, on another blogging site, but I wanted to reach more people, and Xanga is great as a private community… but didn’t work for what I wanted anymore. (Though I do continue to host my photos on there; I am a lifetime premium member, baby!!!) I decided to move to Blogger because I was familiar with Google and it seemed like an easy place to start.
Then began the search for the name.
I don’t hide nor promote the fact that I’m quite a word nerd; I also adore alliteration. My initial choice was Furious Foodie, but it was taken! by someone who wasn’t using it! but this turned out to be a good thing, because I thought about it some more and realized that made it sound like I was mad all the time. I’m not mad all the time! And certainly not over food! Food is delicious and makes me happy.
Then… it suddenly dawned on me… in my early 20s, the group of friends I hung out with on a regular basis (many of whom are now in what I’ve affectionately dubbed the Birthday Brunch Bunch… see? I like alliteration!) used to call me the Feisty one.
Thus, the Feisty Foodie was born.
My original tagline was Feisty is just another word for bitchy which was how I felt about the word and the nickname; funny, amusing, and apt.
It now reads OPINIONATED FOOD CRITIC and will eventually read If it tastes good, eat it!
Honestly, when I started doing it, it was just fun. It was a way for me to keep track of what I’d eaten, what I thought, and share those thoughts with some friends. It’s still fun, but I never thought it would lead to where it has: making so many wonderful friends via blogging, opportunities to have my voice heard, and a wonderful bunch of readers who are never afraid to let me know when I’ve screwed up, but also when I’ve done well.
I wouldn’t trade a minute of this for the world!
And on this date, I am MOVING my site!!! I mentioned it in the beginning of the year and now it is finally happening!!!
Please update your bookmarks to feistyfoodie.com!!!
Okay, I know I’m insane, but here’s a bit of disclaimer: I am going nuts with schoolwork – my first exam is on Saturday, eep! – and there is a bit of backend stuff that still needs work, cleanup on the archives, and a bit of this, a bit of that. If you find any problems or run into issues, PLEASE let me know by dropping me an email!!! I am aware of some stuff, but you can all be my beta testers and help me out by letting me know when you see something wrong. You know: if you see something, say something!
All forthcoming posts will be on the new site. There will be a new RSS feed and all of that good stuff… coming!
I want to give a HUGE thanks to Jenn – she didn’t just help me with the site. She basically made it, from the ground up, for me… and without her, it’d still be an empty site. Not sure I can ever thank her enough!!!
As always… happy eating and see you over there!!!
Well, well, well…
