Facebook’s throwback feature reminds me that every year I say the same thing: THIS YEAR FLEW.
Except I really do think 2016 flew. Wasn’t it just January?!
This year was rough for a lot of people I know and for the world in general. I have to say though it was an incredible year for me, personally and career-wise. There were a lot of positive changes made in my life and, I don’t even feel like the same person that started the year. I’ve grown, learned and succeeded. What I had initially planned to do in January has taken a different turn because as we know, God always has other plans. SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED. All good things.
One of them being this blog. I started this blog in February of this year. A lot of people don’t believe me when I say that but I did! Look! This was my first post. Eek, gotta update those photos ASAP.
I initially started an Instagram account, just for fun, posting photos from all the delicious restaurants I’d been to in Miami. For years, I was a Yelp Elite and would experience the BEST of the best here in Miami I also used to dine out A LOT. Things began to shift and evolve slowly into something I’d always wanted which was to work for myself. And what better way to start than to bring all your passions together and start A Sassy Spoon!
By the way, if you are looking to start a food blog too, these blog resources may help you!
In my past life, I would manage blogs and social media accounts for clients in the culinary industry (I still do sometimes). Now I have my own baby that has grown so much in the past year (and still has a lot to go!). This year alone, I’ve developed so many fun recipes, learned how to properly use a DSLR, how to edit photos, a bit of web development, design, networked with other bloggers, and even began monetizing. I also rebranded!
Most importantly, this blog has been on and popping ALL THANKS TO YOU!
A Sassy Spoon would be nothing without your support, your comments and your feedback. I love receiving emails, private messages, tweets, and comments from all of you. It really makes my heart smile! I plan to continue to make things amazing around here in 2017. Stay tuned + bare with me. :)
Ok, enough mushy stuff. Let’s talk FOOD!
Here’s a quick year in review of the recipes YOU loved from A Sassy Spoon.
You guys are OBSESSED with this Cilantro Garlic Sauce. Literally the most visited recipe on this blog!
And of course, we cannot forget the infamous Drake Themed Party. Not a recipe but a HUGE amount of traffic comes to this page daily.
That’s all folks! I hope you’ve had an amazing holiday season.
I’ll see you in 2017!
