Taking the plunge

After three years of blogging here I finally have decided to give in and buy a proper domain name for this blog. Welcome to the new http://www.bruleeblog.com! Your old bookmarks and favourites will still work, but you may want to update them just in case.

Along with the new domain name, I also decided to change up the design of the site with a new theme. It’s got a lot of different colours from the old site. What do you think?

I know I haven’t been blogging too much lately (lack of time, unfortunately), but I do have a few surprises coming up for you all in the very near future. Stay tuned!

My third blogiversary

I started this blog back in 2008 on this day. When I began, I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into. I thought that I would run out of things to say, or would want a total change of topic before I got to this point. I’m glad to say that working on this blog has increased my interest in food rather than lessened it. I’ve had some great experiences due to this blog, and I’ve got some great things planned for the next year. Thank you for reading my blog and sharing in my food adventures. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 40,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 75 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 447 posts. There were 2 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 55kb.

The busiest day of the year was November 19th with 256 views. The most popular post that day was Pandan Agar Agar recipe.

Where did they come from?
