As I look back on 2011, it was a memorable year for me. At the end of May, I decided to start my blog, Back Road Journal. Going from the fear of how do I start a blog to being named “Best Food Blog of the Year” by Wineguys Radio and TV is amazing to me.
When you start a blog, you wonder what you will write about, will anyone read your posts and most of all, will people enjoy it. I have been most fortunate to have had the nicest people stop by to visit my blog. I have to thank all the readers who also took the time to write a comment. Your support that has encouraged me…made me strive to create new recipes, visit destinations that you will find interesting, share new gardening experiences and so much more.
I decided to look back at my posts…to see what you enjoyed each month. I thought I would share the most popular.
June’s favorite was Monet’s Garden On a Rainy Day…memories of rainy day travels.
July’s favorite was Best Lamb Burger…summer on the lake and grilling.
August’s favorite was Antique and Classic Wooden Boat and Car Show…Freshly Pressed.
September’s favorite was I Bid A Fond Farewell To Summer, As I Look Forward To Fall…a look back at summer in Maine.
October’s favorite was Foodies Tour Of Munich…food lover’s tour of Munich (part of our fall trip to Europe).
November’s favorite was Pot Roast Osso Buco Style With Polenta…chuck roast turned into an Italian favorite.
I hope you have enjoyed looking back at my posts as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you. I look forward to all that 2012 has to offer and hope you will join me.
