Word of Mouth, Year 6 and Beyond
Five years is a milestone, I guess, and it's also time to reconsider the future of the blog. While I still enjoy writing about food, it's becoming harder (except when I travel) to find new things to write about. I've mined my culinary memories and I've already written about many of my favorite New York restaurants. I don't have the time or inclination to scour the furthest reaches of the city for undiscovered gems; Chowhound and blogs like Eating in Translation are good for that. Anyway, I never intended this to be primarily a restaurant review site.
So here's what I've decided. From now on I'm no longer holding myself to a post (or more) a week. Word of Mouth will now be more intermittent. I'm hoping to devote more time to my fiction (or whatever those short things I do are), and will continue to post links to online publications.
If you want to be sure you don't miss any of my thrilling no-longer-weekly posts, you might consider subscribing to email alerts from Feedblitz.
Over the next few weeks I'll be publishing a retrospective, forty memorable meals from the first four years (in four parts) and a selection of my favorite food photos.
