Well, it’s been exactly one week since I inadvertently went live with this blog by posting something and then forgetting that I’d set it up so a notification would go out on Twitter whenever there was a new post. The next thing I knew, emails from new readers started to come in.
There’s nothing like getting shoved into something when you’re not quite ready — but, a week later, hey, we’re still alive and kicking!
Big thanks to some early supporters: Liberty London Girl, who did a wonderful item on A Tiger in the Kitchen mere moments after we went live. Jewelry designer Wendy Brandes of the sassy Wendy Brandes Jewelry blog, who totally nagged me to start this blog and continues to teach me oodles about blogging. The Asian American Journalists Association, which did an item on my book deal with Hyperion that also linked to this blog.
Here’s to many more weeks of cooking, eating and waxing lyrical about it all. Thanks to all of you — from Sydney to Salem, Oregon — for checking in so far.
And … the navel-gazing moment ends. Santé!
