100,000 Hits

A year ago FortWorthHoleInTheWall was giddy over the possibility of nearing 25,000 hits. Now, thanks to my mom, and her refresh program, there are almost 100,000 hits. Thanks to everybody who keeps reading despite the useless posts, address-less locations and quasi-posting lags. It's been fun and I hope you think so as well. If not, start your own blog and do "real" reviews that are "helpful". Just kidding, don't leave me...I didn't mean it...come back baby...

Below are a couple of changes as well as a new blog you should check out.

First, Fort Worth Foodie put out its summer issue of Fort Worth Foodie Magazine, the Hole In The Wall edition. The writers were kind enough to ask for some input from FWHITW and even published a few quotes. Check it out and take six or seven home to tape on your wall.

Second, you may remember that I added Urbanspoon tags a few weeks back. Well, as of this moment, Urbanspoon has FWHITW listed as the number one FW/D Blog. Basically that means we beat dallas. You can all take part of the pride in this ridiculously small achievement.

Thirdly, I added a map to the left side. If you're at home or work and need a close hole in the wall, just click on the map, find your location and see what is nearby. I'm working on making the address pins appear on the iphones but I have as much computer knowledge as Spiral Diner has beef.

Finally, Linguine and Dirty Martinis is run by a culinary student here in Fort Worth. Because she actually knows about food she has some great insight into local restaurants and also some delicious looking recipes. If you're a foodie or just enjoy food beyond your Golden Corral love, check it out.

Again, thanks to everybody for reading and I hope we can keep this going for at least another 100,000 hits.

Congrats, that's great! My mom has no idea what a blog is (maybe because I don't know the Spanish word for blog - el blogo?)so I can't convince her to visit my site, much less refresh. Keep up all the good eating & writing!

El blogo funny Josie. I have no idea what the Spanish word is either. FWHITW WooHoo 100,000 that calls for celebration. I know I'll be around I love showing people these new places that I've discovered thanks to this blog.

For those that don't know, Josie is referring to Eat This Fort Worth which is a blog providing great coverage of a ton of great local restaurants.

Hope n laughter, hopefully FWHITW can continue to provide.

Thanks to all of you for reading and commenting.

Anonymous, I've got a review of my Paco and John dinner coming up as well Tokyo Cafe.

Callie, keep up the great work and let us know when you open a restaurant in Fort Worth.

Thank you to everybody for reading.

I was just wondering since I have a blog as well, http://lewp.wordpress.com

I noticed you don't blog everyday. Do you ever feel "pressure" to write more often?

Anonymous, I did see the Star-Telegram Reader's Choices for restaurants. I was going to make a big long post about it, but I figured the people who read this blog aren't the ones that need educating on good local places. It's the people that will never find this blog.

LewP, sometimes the overbearing pressure of being such a huge celebrity makes me feel obligated to post more often. But, since I make no money from this blog and have no advertisers, I only feel pressured when I haven't posted for a couple weeks.

Thanks for reading.
