Happy New Year all my EENews Pals

It’s that time of year when we look both backwards and forwards as the year turns over.

Yes, New Years for 2019. It’s here. And a very special year this will be.  Everybody Eats News turned five years old this fall, and  — ta da—we hit 1000 posts.

This means if you look back through the files you can find 1000 tested recipes, plenty of news about foods and nutrition,  all the news that’s fit to float out there in the stratosphere.

Most people don’t hang onto websites for 1000 postings.  Why?  Because they get bored, because they don’t make money from the site, and because – well there are hundreds of reasons to sign off.

Then why do readers stick?  They know they can trust me. I’ve had my eye on the food scene for a long time.  I pay attention and I try to deliver the most pertinent news about food and how it affects all of us.

And why do I continue to post on this site?  There is always something new to learn, something new to report on, and something new to make a record of.

Because the one great thing about the internet is that whatever you post on the internet is there for the duration.  Yes.  Forever.  And for a writer, that is a very tempting thing.

After all, the site isn’t called Everybody Eats News for nothing.

So for you,  I’ll keep my eye on the ball,  keep on cooking and testing recipes, and keep on posting so that you can stay on top of this ever moving target.

As for you – if you have a burning desire or just some little itch that needs to be scratched,  send me a note.  I’ll run it down for you and post an answer you can use.


Happy New Year.
