A Decade of Macheesmo!
If anybody has ever gone to the Macheesmo archives page and scrolled all the way to the bottom you would see that ten years ago yesterday I wrote and published my first post ever on Macheesmo. (Nobody has ever scrolled that far to my knowledge)
TEN years. In blogging age that makes me damn old. I feel like these days there are some Internet celebrities that are barely ten years old!
I started Macheesmo 10 years ago on a whim. I had just moved in with my girlfriend at the time (now wife) and decided I was going to be the cook of the family. The blog would keep me honest, I figured. Little did I know that I would fall in love with the girl and with the craft.
A LOT has happened since I wrote that first post and this small little part of the Internet has been with me through it all.
I made a fun little graphic to try to summarize just some of the things that have happened to me either because of this site or during the running of this site.
It’s crazy for me to look at and honestly looking at it almost makes me cry.
If you happen to be reading this, I’m sure Macheesmo has been a very small part of your life, but just know that that fact that you are reading it, has been a very BIG part of my life.
So, thanks and here’s to the next decade when I’m sure I will be able to beam recipes directly into your brain.
