I’ve been considering what to write in this special post. The 100th entry, holy crow! And I’ve decided that I’ll write whatever I want here, food-related or not. Especially I want to become closer to you, my dear readers! I hope we can take this chance to get to know more about each other.
This is a very meaningful event to me, because after nearly 2 years (1 year and 9 months, to be exact), Danang Cuisine blog marks its 100th post and also the 1000th follower
on its Facebook fanpage
, not to mention the feature on a Hong Kong’s magazine
and a Vietnamese magazine
. Interestingly, within those 21 months
, I was NOT in Da Nang for 11 months
You know that for each review, I have to actually go to the food shops, try the food and take the photos/videos myself. Which was very difficult, and even impossible for me to do as half of the time since starting this blog I was studying overseas. But still I managed to continue to develop Danang Cuisine, with the great help from my family: my older sister, Helen Le
for all of her wonderful recipes, and even my mother
who wrote several guest posts in Vietnamese (guestwriter Penguin
, that’s my mom!!).
And of course, Danang Cuisine can’t exist without YOU
! 21 months ago, when I googled “Danang Cuisine” (exact phrase), there was NO result. Now, there are 10.400
! The amount of comments is also increasing tremendously. As I said in this magazine interview
, your comments are the greatest motivation for me to continue. From the very first days when there was only 1-2 comments a month, to today when there can be 10 a day, to me the joy and happiness of reading each and every comment still remains intact. For all of your support so far, I would like to say THANK YOU
.So… now it’s your turn. I would love to know:
- What you honestly think about Danang Cuisine?
- What can be done for improvements?
- Your own stories, i.e. your love story with Da nang, with Da Nang street food, with Viet Nam… or anything you want to share with me and other readers.
