My husband, Paul, has been a tireless supporter of my blogging efforts for the past few years. So much so, that he takes more than a vested interest in the content here – i.e. making things for me to blog about, photographing as much as I do, seeing events as potentially newsworthy, sharing restaurant experiences, etc.
He does, however, get on me about not blogging about stuff quickly enough, as he well should. Tired of him trying to dictate the schedule of my postings, I’ve been telling him for ages, “if you want to write about things you want to talk about, start your own blog!”. Well guess what? He’s done just that.
Although we share many of the same experiences, our interests are definitely different. He’s into food preservation, obscure beers, and the more social aspects of food. Rather than duplicating content, I’d like to think that we complement each other very well. And he’s really got a knack for words, maybe even more so than I do. I’m sure he would love for you to take a look at his new food blog, Fat Bastard.
The name came about because he participates in IRC chat rooms. In one such chat room, he goes by the nick “Rat Bastard” – one of the other participants, trying to get his goat, has taken to calling him “Fat Bastard”. Clever. And from there, “Get in Mah Belly” came to mind. And I said, “hey, that combo would make a great food blog name”, and he agreed, and a blog was born.
I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
