DeathbedFood is 5!
To celebrate, I’m sharing my favorite post from each of the last five years. Perhaps we’ll be able to see my personal growth (or lack thereof) through this list.
2011 … Ground Zero
As a brand new blogger, it was a huge honor to be invited in for a behind-the-scenes preview of the opening of Thomas Keller’s first property in Southern California, Bouchon Bakery in Beverly Hills.
2012 … 1 Year Old
Barely six months in, I somehow qualified myself to be “Press” at the Governor’s Ball Food and Beverage Preview. Little did I know I’d meet someone from CBS LA who would later rank @DeathbedFood as One of the Top 5 Foodies in LA to Follow on Twitter.
2013 … 2 Years Old
To me, the best indication of good writing is strong emotional reaction. I received LOVE and HATE reactions to this based-on-my-real-life-food-blog-job-seeking-nightmare piece. Read it; see what camp you’re in.
2014 … 3 Years Old
I only did TWO posts that year. Maybe because I got burned out from being rejected for that food blogging job? After much deliberation I’ll choose the Prince post because: (1) Any chance I get I’ll pay tribute; and (2) I wholeheartedly agree with him about the phones – “Put your phone down. You can’t get down with technology in your hand!”
2015 … 4 Years Old
When a restaurant experience takes me totally by surprise it’s rewarding to be able to capture it on the blog for the world to see. Such was the case with Danny Meyer’s North End Grill in Manhattan. I’ll never forget their hospitality both in the restaurant and on the rooftop.
2016 … 5 Years Old
This blog is about having fun. It’s my creative outlet where I go a bit #craycray. In this post, I blend my doggie world with my foodie one. Freddie Prints BTW is on Twitter @FreddiePrints. Please follow him. He only has 400 followers and he’s very competitive with me.
Tweet me @DeathbedFood about what you like, don’t like or wish I’d do more of on the blog.
