A Love Letter


Dear Readers,

If you haven’t noticed, I have been absent from Epic Portions for quite some time.  It has been almost two months since I documented a Summer dinner I consumed in early July.  I’ll admit, I just haven’t been motivated enough to post pictures of food and attempt to surround it with witty comments.

In my opinion, food blogs are getting a little corny.  I know I sound like kind of an asshole seeing as I’m saying that on my food blog, but I feel like the internet is saturated with food websites.  Years ago I truly enjoyed following multiple food blogs and these blogs were the inspiration for what you read now.  I started Epic Portions to not only chronicle my adventures in obesity, but also to create a website based around food that was completely unique.  I didn’t have any desire to make any money or gain notoriety from it.  I simply like food and I thought that I could provide an interesting perspective to both people around my area and people across the country.  I didn’t want to start a TGI Fridays style website that was the same as everything else.  I think I have been pretty successful in doing that.

That being said, it’s time to change things up.  Over the next few months, you will see drastic changes to not only the design of the site, but the content as well.  I will begin posting daily with content that I am truly proud of.  I hate filler material, which is why you sometimes see me go on long absences in between posts.  I just don’t find it fair to post random shit that I wouldn’t personally care to read.

Additionally, many people are using social networking to document their food adventures and I want to attempt to highlight that.   It is my goal to turn Epic Portions into a one stop shop for all things food but done the way we want to do it, with absolutely no bullshit.

I hope you enjoy Epic Portions in the future.  It really is fun to post whatever I feel like that day and have 5,000+ read it within 24 hours.

Your fearless leader,


p.s. Don’t make fun of my big head.  I’m sensitive.

p.s.s. I’m still pretty pumped that we destroyed Tios at the beginning of the Summer.
