Wednesday, June 3, 2009 thanks you!!!

It's been a little over two months since we launched with the most modest of expectations.

We came to this with limited expertise, knowing almost nothing about the technical side of the Internet and having no real appreciation for the demands of blogging. As it turns out, that's a good thing. We might have been scared off if we'd realized how much we had to learn, or how much work it takes to make this work.

But we've been greatly and pleasantly surprised by how much we've learned in such a short time -- and we're particularly excited and thankful for the response we've gotten from you. has reached an astounding 43 countries on six continents! We're floored by that -- and a little humbled, too.

Because the Internet is interactive, we know that our audience has reached such unexpected corners of the world as South Korea and Vietnam as well as Syria, Bulgaria, Pakistan, Cyprus, Australia, Norway, Canada and Mexico among many others.

Through the magic of Google's analytic software, we're able to trace visitors down to the very local level and even see how long they've spent clicking through our features.

(We're kind of curious about the location identified as White House -- no kidding!)

We've also gotten emails directly from readers in places like New Jersey, Massachusetts and even Ireland. We'd love to get more!

Remember: You can comment on any post by clicking the blue word "comment." You can even comment anonymously. All comments greatly appreciated!

Thanks again for visiting, and please tell your friends. Remember: You can easily email any of our posts to anyone by clicking the little mail symbol. We want you to share.

And we want to hear from you about what you want. Send us YOUR recipes, your questions, your suggestions as well as pictures of your favorite Armenian chef.

We'd love to hear from you. -- Robyn Kalajian (
