I started this blog almost three years ago. I started it as a way, basically, to explore my passion and to live closer to food. When I wrote my first post I never dreamed of the places it would take me, or of the amazing people I would meet along the way. I am constantly astounded by some of the incredible food bloggers, all over the country, but especially here in Boston. Tonight launched the Boston Food Bloggers website, a site which brings together all of us who have found writing as the outlet for our passion.
It was an incredible evening in which 100+ bloggers gathered at The Gallows in Boston's South End. I stole some bites of food as they passed by, and each that I tasted were delicious, however it wasn't the food that stole the show this evening. It was the amazing people who crammed into the restaurant who upstaged it all. The group of people that were gathered this evening just remind me of an incredible journey that we've all started on.
Every person in that room comes from a different background, but we are all bonded through the love of food. It continuously amazes me how much passion we all have for culinary pursuits, despite where our past has been. I love that I can walk away from an evening among such a wonderful community with a renewed love of the blog world and full of inspiration from my fellow bloggers.
Rachel, you did an amazing job organizing with Christine from Urbanspoon.
I am so pleased to be a member of such a group of fantastic people!
