The Spamwise Chronicles turns four next July. In blog years, that’s an eternity.
If you’ve been a reader or a commenter, thank you from the bottom of my heart for having been a part of this here website thingy. If you’re just joining us, I hope you’ll stick around for a little while.
Lately I’ve been thinking about broadening the blog’s exposure by joining Facebook. The thing that gives me pause is Facebook’s [unfortunate] track record regarding privacy issues. If you’ve had any experience with the service, or if you’re currently a member on Facebook, I’d like to know your thoughts.
In the meantime, here’s a selection of food photography from the archives. Enjoy.
