CELEBRATING LML :: 1 YEAR INTO MY POST QUARTER LIFE CRISIS // live, love, eat, sleep

FB LML

I feel like a Proud Mama.

Most Moms post photos of their infants, I post photos of my blog. Behold.

It’s been one full year since I made the decision to follow my passion, and I feel just as happy & excited as the first day I posted on LML (if not more)! Remember this oneAnd this oneA lot has changed in one year.

After 3 degrees and 4 years into my career, when I finally let go of certain expectations, I felt like I was finally on the right path:

  • It started with a personal mission to find (not-just-good, but) really good local food
  • When I came across a local specialty, I would share these findings by uploading my private stash of food porn onto Foodspotting
  • From there I subscribed, connected and developed friends with other foodies
  • I researched Chefs, ingredients, cookbooks, and other Food Media specialists to learn how to get into the food media industry and sometimes I’d get jealous or discouraged by those who were already in the field 
  • And then I created web graph after web graph in hopes of figuring out my next food move

Can you say, invigorated?!

And in one year, this happened:

BOOM.
