One Year Old!

Yesterday, was the 'year anniversary' of my Blog! It started out as a fun experiment. I never thought anybody would discover it and lo-n-behold, it was Keiko of Nordljus who wrote my very first comment. I screamed to the family that somebody actually looked at my Blog. It was exciting!

One year on, this little web-log has been such fun. I've met some wonderful folks who have actually taken a gander at the Banlieue Blog and I've been inspired by some really fantastic food blogs. So many talented people out there!

Take a walk down memory lane with me; photos from my very first post!

This year, my goal is to try and tweak my blogger template and create a new banner! Don't hold your breath, I have talked about this for a while!! Check back to see it that does indeed happen!

Congrats on reaching the one year mark. I know a lot of blogs don't make it to a year, so it's an accomplishment.

Happy Birthday BANLIEU BLOG. Great to see you finally decided to change your banner (and by that i'm not saying that your current banner is rubbish but we already talked about that).


PS thanx for that amazing year of recipes and delicious bites in your life...
