Good news, page views and thank yous!

I’m really excited to announce that my site, which launched at the end of November, has now been viewed 100,000 times! Thanks, friends, for supporting my experiment!

I was also surprised yesterday with the news that this story about Sara’s farmer cousin Emily and the Homer food scene was nominated for a James Beard Award, which is like the Oscars of food writing. There’s a big dinner in New York City in a month when the winners are announced. I don’t know how I’m going to get there, but I plan to try!

  • Congratulations in your nomination. I love reading your columns and am proud to say you are an ASD grad!

  • I offer babysitting services if that helps get you there! Congratulations, really happy for you!

  • Congratulations! No big surprise to me…following you for years now. You deserve it. I hope you get there…and then write about it!

  • Congratulations Julia, Ak is lucky to have a reporter that truly portrays the essence of that great state.

  • Congratulations! You deserve every accolade you get. I love your writing!

  • A very well written article (as usual) with so many side stories that it really felt like short story. I will be adding a trip to Homer to my summer schedule this year with the goal of eating in many of those restaurants. Alaska does have a special connection to food and I want to steal as many good recipes as I can.

  • Kudos. Big kudos. It’s good to see Alaskans with an entrepreneurial spirit making it work. Alaska needs more of them on all fronts if we are to survive post oil. Thanks for leading a charge.
