Archive for South Jersey Wine & Dine
Since the very first post back in early July of last year a great deal has happened to my South Jersey Wine Blog. We have had a name change to South Jersey Wine & Dine, a ton of restaurant reviews with plenty more to come, and most gratifying of all to me, a steady and consistent increase in readership. That first month of July there were 147 visits. I am thrilled to say that if the present trend continues we will reach 10,000 visits before our 1 year anniversary. This doesn’t even include my own visits!! A toast to all of you who have made the efforts I have put into writing this blog totally worthwhile.
As any of you who live in the Philly/South Jersey area already know, February was a horrendous weather month with record snowfalls. This may have reduced the number of dining opportunities. March will be better as I already have reservations for Blackbird in Collingswood, ModoMio, in Philly and Creed’s Seafood and Steakhouse in King of Prussia, and those are just in the first 8 days of March!

It’s been fun sharing these first 100 posts with all of you and I just wanted all of you to know that I appreciate the fact that you find the information I provide on BYOB dining and wine possibilities in this area interesting. Thank you! Slainte!
Before we get any deeper into 2010, I think it’s appropriate to make this name change. As of today, the SOUTH JERSEY WINE BLOG has become SOUTH JERSEY WINE & DINE. I think this new name more accurately reflects the content of the blog, and may have more appeal to “foodies” who just aren’t as passionate about the virtues of the grape as I am.
There will certainly continue to be a preponderance of wine news and information, but the new title may inspire me to add some posts of greater interests to those who enjoy the local dining scene.
I have always considered this area where we live to encompass both sides of the Delaware River and therefore, there will be lots of info on food and wine from the Philly side as well as here in South Jersey.
I truly hope the majority of you agree with the new blog title and I appreciate the support you have shown in the past and I look forward to another great year of blogging.
Thanks to all who visit here on a regular basis!
