The Birth of a Blog


Over a year ago I was searching for the website of one of my favorite haunts, The Metro Cafe. I stumbled upon Ellen Bloom's blog on a post she wrote about her experience at The Metro. In one of the photos, I recognized two of my friends at the next table! As a matter of fact, I was there with them, out of the frame. I posted a comment on her blog, and perused the Blogspot site. I quickly realized how easy they make it to create a blog, and Ellen seemed to have so much fun creating hers, so I set up my account. Ellen and I (and a few others) became Blogger-Pen-Pals. Last night I went to an art galley in downtown CC for a showing of an artist I collect, Shag. Guess who I ran into? I should have known Ellen would be there. If there is any cool, modern, tiki, knitting, architectual, wacky, fun event in LA to attend, she is there. Thanks for the inspiration, Ellen.

The best part about food blogging is the community you join! I never knew that was your inspiration - how cool! It would be crazy to search for a restaurant to find out that a picture of my friends (with me out of frame) was on someone's website! What a great story.

Hi Bree!!! I'm so glad you recognized me at the art gallery! I've been wanting to meet you for a long time. So glad I inspired you to create one of the best restaurant blogs in L.A.!!!!

Bree I love your blog. I found you through another friend who is a food fan and lives in Culver City, like me. But I am also friends with Ellen - she's a knitting/crochet buddy. Love the small world of the innernets.

How funny - I just ran across you on Ellen's blog...

Anyways, we should hang out and go eat and/or drink sometime.
