1 Year Anniversary

It's NOT my birthday, but its a celebration. A year ago, I started A Taste of Heaven. I remember having a conversation with my former boss about blogging. She encouraged me to start blogging about my food experiences. I did not know what a blog was or even how to blog. I did some research, and I opened an account with Blogger. My first post was the Steak Socrates from Marietta Diner.  It was not a big success because I did not know how to promote or market my blog properly. However, this did not stop me from posting my food adventures. I had no idea that A Taste of Heaven would reach such great success. I have learned so much, and I’ve been to so many places.  I would like to thank the audience, the social networks, the restaurants, my family, and friends for all the support. I love you guys. :D

I am kicking of The First Annual Food Awards. Every year on August 11th, I will have an award ceremony for A Taste of Heaven. The winners for 2011-2012 are listed below.
