Why a Blog on Restaurants and Food?

I'm a big fan of Yelp and have been posting there regularly since 2008. Recently I began noticing more and more that I was hitting the word count limit  and was having a really difficult time curtailing my review. The idea of this blog came from that - basically I have two versions of my reviews - the short that I publish on Yelp, and my more detailed reviews on this blog. The other advantage is that I'm better able to place photos from the restaurants I review inline with the words and descriptions I use in the reviews. And finally, I'm also able to speak a bit more candidly about my experiences rather than fit into guidelines of "political correctness" expected when sharing reviews on Yelp.

Recently I also added Urban Spoon to the mix (I've had an account there for many years but had focused on the larger Yelp community). Of course now Urban Spoon has been acquired by Zomato.
