Hello foodiverse. It’s a bittersweet feeling writing this final post for this blog. I’m proud and impressed that we actually managed to keep up with and complete this year-long adventure, but I’m sad to see it end. Also, I have no idea what I’m going to eat now. This blog has dictated my meals for the past year. Now I have to make it up myself.
If you’re crazy and want to start from the very beginning, here’s a link to our first post for National Ice Cream Pie Day (which is today!).
What I’ve done as a final post is put together some fun pie charts about our year. First, we have a chart of how many posts each author wrote. We had 375 total posts and 9 authors.
I wrote almost 50% of all the posts.
We missed posting on three different days, but there were twelve days where we posted twice.
Next, we have a chart about the actual food holidays. I separated the holidays into four main categories: General Food, Dessert, Snacks, and Beverages.
And then I broke it down even farther. I made a chart for each category, separating them into sub-categories that had at least two holidays throughout the year.
So, there you have it. A very un-Math-minded person who tried to make some charts. If there’s one thing us foodies enjoy, it’s pie. (I crack myself up.)
Before I go, if you want to keep reading more from any of us, check out mine and Allyssa’s other blog, Truths with Lori and Allyssa.
This has been a fun and crazy journey, and I thank you all for taking it with me. Keep up with us on Instagram.
Special thanks to: Keri, Kimmi, Diana, Allyssa, Amanda, Kaely, Rachel, and Kirstie for agreeing to help me on this journey so I didn’t get fat and poor on my own; my entire family for eating my experiments (especially that peach cobbler nightmare); my mom specifically for loving nuts and sometimes funding this adventure; the husbands/fiancés/boyfriends and children of our contributors for helping out; various friends for participating (even if they weren’t aware that they were); and my coworkers for eating all the leftover dessert I couldn’t finish.
