One Year of Blogging!

Today marks one year since we launched “Adventures in Local Food”.  A huge thanks to all those who have contributed articles, comments, clicked the like button or quietly stopped by to read about what we’ve been up to.  It’s been a great year and I’m looking forward to many more!

Because I’m curious about what draws people to the blog, I decided to pull a couple of stats for you.  Here are the top five posts most read posts over the last year:

Pining for Parsnips
2011 Canning and Preserving Classes
Preserving Our Harvest Contest

The Little Box That Could
Root Cellar Basics

The top 5 search terms that brought people to the blog have been:

parsnips
bread
leaves
adventures in local food
parsnip

Looking at the above, it makes me wonder if there’s a lack of good information about parsnips on the internet that this blog has somehow filled.  Or perhaps people just love parsnips??  I find the parsnip thing rather baffling, but hey, glad to help. 

A longer look into the stats reveals that there’s a lot of interest in root cellaring in general.  And a lot of interest in CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture).  Also, our site viewings spiked in August when we were canning and preserving like fiends, which makes me think that there’s demand for that information too.

If you have any requests for topics or want to write a post for us, leave me a comment below.  I’d love to hear from you.

And many thanks for your readership over the last year.

Yours in Food,
Marla

PS I’ve got some exciting blog posts in the works for next week.  Pop by for photos and stories from the Preserving Our Harvest Contest, more about kimchi, and shark news from the other side of the Atlantic.
