On January 10th, 2011, a new blog was born. It’s 391 posts and 2,251 comments later, and – for better or worst – this little vanity project is still here. Here’s a look back at my very first post:
Well, I guess I’m going to really do this thing. I don’t know how often I’ll be posting, or if it will be any good, or if anyone will even read what I write.
I’m still learning my way around the whole blog “thing”, so be patient with me.
My blog’s name is a play on the pronunciation of my (married) last name – “Koch” is the German word for “cook” (which also happens to be how my husband’s family pronounces it). The inspiration for the title of the blog was the old “Cook’s Tour” from back in the day:
Cook’s tour (Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary)
- From Thomas Cook, considered to be the world’s first travel agent, running guided tours of Europe and the Middle East in the mid-1800s.
Cook’s tour (plural Cook’s tours)
- (informal) A long or complicated journey, an indirect route.
- The detour meant that we had to go on a twenty mile Cook’s tour to get home.
Lucky you – you get to “take the long road” through my world! I hope you enjoy the journey – I don’t issue refunds…..
Thanks for playing along for the last 3 years – I really appreciate you guys hanging with me through it all! ♥♥♥
