5 years ago today, I launched So Good with THIS post, declaring So Good to be “the first true humor/food blog.” I believe we lived up to that very quickly. In my inaugural post I promised three things:
If I do say so myself, we succeeded on all counts right out of the gate, and I hope we are still succeeding 1,811 blog posts later…wow that’s a lot!
What started as one dude having a few too many drinks and asking his friends absurd Would You Rather questions had morphed into a blog available for all the world to read. Thanks to a boost in media attention and readership after breaking the Papa John’s/Crybaby story, So Good began to grow and add new writers. We currently have 6 writers besides myself: Sam, JT, Andy, Mark, Peter & occasionally Cary. And a few contributors since departed.
Some of the staples of So Good’s beginnings remain, such as Would You Rather questions. Take a stroll down memory lane and read my first one ever, where I envisioned two horrifying scenarios involving Circus Peanuts & the McRib.
Since then we’ve expanded beyond just Would You Rather questions, adding Rants, Eating Styles Polls, “I Try It So You Don’t Have To” and the first ever comic about a food blogger, Deep Fried Everything. Plus, who could forget our food brackets? Now at 4 years and counting – Meat Madness, Fast Food Bracket, Snack Madness and Candy Madness.
It’s been a fun 5 years for me, but I hope it’s been an especially fun 5 years for you, the reader. You are the reason this blog still exists. Thank you so much for your continued readership, support and interest in our content, posts, polls, brackets, Would You Rather’s and everything else that makes this blog so much fun to run, write and edit. And enormous thanks to all of our current writers, Sam, JT, Andy, Mark, Peter and Cary, who have kept the site chugging along with great new content every day – I couldn’t do it without you.
Here’s to another 5 great years?
