So you want to start a blog?

Lately, I have been reading blog after blog about Cincinnati, food, drink, events and more.  My google reader is now full of bloggers.  So, I decided to get in on the action!

But how do you start?  Pick a clever name?  Upload some trendy "pics" circa MySpace-2002?  No, I don't think so.  I did what any detail oriented person would do: research.  I picked a few of my favorite blogs, perused their archives and read their very first posts.  I came across quite a few different styles, particularly, I loved Epiventure's first post: a gripping tale of roasted chicken.  Funny.  Inviting.  Personable.  What a great way to start!
I can hardly say that this post will be nearly as creative, but perhaps later on down the road.

I am looking forward to tonight, as I will be attending my very first Glier's Goettafest!!  I have been a huge fan of goetta for years, and I am definitely looking forward to a Fest dedicated entirely to this Cincinnati meat concoction.  I'm not sure how I feel about goetta fudge though...

Oh well... try everything once I suppose!
