Happy New Year everyone!! I received this ‘2012 in review’ report from WordPress and thought I would share this with all of you. When I started my Korean Food at Home blog in Jan of 2011, my average visits per day was 4 and now my blog gets over 1000 daily! I want to say THANK YOU to all my readers, followers and especially to those who have given me great encouragements, questions and requests! They really help me keep going.
So what’s my New Year resolution? Actually I have none – I don’t like making resolutions because I can never keep them. :) But I do have some exciting news to share with you. I just signed up for a Food Stylist class at SookMyung University Korean Food Institute and also for a Vegetable Sommelier certification class. I have always found styling Korean food very difficult and hopefully with this class I can produce better presentation and photos to share with you on my blog. I actually found the Vegetable Sommelier class by accident. But I am glad I found it because I think it’s a very interesting and unique approach to food. The original vegetable sommelier certification started in Japan and it teaches everything about vegetables and fruits including organic farming, cooking, nutrition, etc. In particular, I’m especially excited to learn about organic farming! Hopefully when I am able to have my own garden again, I can apply what I learned in this class.
Here’s an excerpt:
About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 250,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 5 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!
