Happy Birthday EatMore Drinkmore!
The picture above is one I took at the Ferry Building in San Francisco, and it was the first post made on EatMore DrinkMore back when we were a simple Tumblr blog whose readership included the few bloggers on EatMore DrinkMore and their respective spouses. Well, needless to say, we’ve grown a little bit in the past year and it’s been a blast. EatMore DrinkMore has always been a team blog. Some of our team members have moved on, and we were lucky to have them while we did but the door is always open and if you lean on them a bit maybe they’ll write for us again.
We have a great core group of writers right now on EatMore DrinkMore, and I couldn’t be more thankful for all of the hard work that Jenna and Britt have put into making EatMore DrinkMore a great site. In the past year we have churned out 389 posts, sent 1,180 updates to our 1,000 Twitter followers (a hell of a lot more tweets if you follow Jenna @jigolden), developed travel guides to our favorite destinations, written over 50 restaurant reviews, met a bunch of chefs, made a lot of great food, ate a lot of great food, and most importantly connected with tens of thousands of readers from all over the world (well…mostly DC)
In celebration of our BIRTHDAY, we’re giving away a whole bunch of gift cards to What’s the Deal. All you need to do is leave a comment or send a tweet letting us know your favorite recipe, post, review, feature, whatever from the past year on EatMore DrinkMore and you’ll be entered to win. Sound good? I thought so.
