The day has finally arrived when anotherfoodblog closes. We began in late April 2006, five years and eight months ago, and since then we have posted pretty well every day, and usually twice a day. The blog began when I took over the Singleton Diet for about 20 days, and liked doing it so much that a group of us started anotherfoodblog.com, powered by WordPress.
The blog will remain up, in case anyone wants to check up on recipes or restaurants, but I will no longer be adding new posts. It’s possible that Mike or Xander might have some in reserve to put up, and even I might post something really special. But otherwise this is it, the end of an era. It will be quite a shift, not taking out my camera when the food is ready!
We built up a surprising following, averaging 35-45,000 visits per month, 190-200,000 hits. And about 120,000 pages. We never took advertising or took a free meal. I will continue with my day job, of course, at adamsmith.org and will from time to time update my own website at madsen-pirie.com. I have two books coming out soon, “Economics Made Simple” from Harriman House on January 16th, and “Think Tank – the Story of the Adam Smith Institute” from Biteback Publications on February 16th. There will no doubt be launch parties with nice canapés and wine for both. If you’d like to be invited, ask email@example.com.
The only other thing for me to say is what fun it has been. I talked to the others and we all enjoyed sharing a little of our lives. So thank you to our loyal readers. And goodbye.
