It’s hard to believe it’s been more than a year since Scott and I first hatched the Eat Your World idea, while traveling around Colombia. Since then there’s been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears—and unexpected delays—but we’re proud to be where we are now. This week we soft-launched to a large group of friends and family, our public soft launch is just around the corner, and, with editorial food-and-drink coverage for 19 cities from 13 different states/provinces/countries, the site is really coming along. Slow and steady wins the race, right?
Of course, there’s much more on the way: We’ve done a lot of domestic traveling this year, and I’m still playing catch-up on the writing front. Soon we’ll have sections for Austin, Los Angeles, Denver, and Boston, with lots more EYW snapshots coming too. In early 2011 we’re planning to expand our international coverage, with extended trips to either India or parts of Europe—or hopefully both!
The year has been challenging yet exhilarating, and we are super excited for what’s to come. We hope you too are greeting 2011 with a positive, enthusiastic outlook. From the small EYW staff in New York: Happy holidays, and may your new year be filled with delicious exploration.
