Today is Kavey Eats’ 1st birthday, or blogiversary!
I started creating the blog on the evening of April Fool’s Day 2009, after attending a wonderful chocolate tasting event, worked feverishly on it through the next day and announced my new blog to the world on the 2nd April!
Even though I still feel like a newbie, I look back at how much I’ve posted (and eaten) over the past year with a sense of amazement (and some pride). We’re talking 127 posts over a year!
I’d like to say a huge thank you to those of you who’ve joined me on this journey, who read my blog and, especially those who take the time to comment. A year in and I still feel a childlike thrill each time you take the time to share your thoughts, so do please keep reading and please keep in touch.
Here are some of my favourite posts from the year that’s passed:-

P.S. Eagle-eyed amongst you might notice that my blog archive goes back to 2006. That’s because I’ve made notes about and taken photographs of my food, especially meals out, for many, many, many, many years. In recent years, I shared some of these in a general web diary with a small circle of friends, some I posted on a food chat website, and some I sent via email to interested friends and family. All of these, I ferreted out and copied across to Kavey Eats, so that I had all my food ramblings stored in one handy place.
