What’s that? I couldn’t read your comments through all the dust that’s accumulated over the blog.
It has been some time, hasn’t it? I’ve noticed I’m still getting quite a few daily hits, and I’m pleased! However, I permanently relocated to lovely California several months ago. (Yay!) The move has been beneficial to me both professionally and personally, but I’m still grateful for the fabulous food and experiences I had during my stint in Louisiana.
As a result, some of the information you might find here may not be up-to-date. I’m no longer keeping track of restaurant openings and closures in Shreveport, so if you read a review you like, be sure to call in advance and make sure they’re still around!
As far as I know, Shreveport still lacks a regularly-updated, unbiased and objective restaurant review blog. Most local newspapers, magazines, and tourism websites (and this applies to everywhere, not just Shreveport) strive to paint a particular picture of a location–often to appease advertisers and personal connections. Through Savoring Shreveport, I aimed, frankly, to cut through all that crap. I didn’t write for page views or to make friends, I did it because I believed (and still believe!) that people are entitled to an unbiased opinion when deciding where to spend their money. The immense popularity of sites like Yelp and Urbanspoon corroborate my belief. But if you miss my blog (and I hope you do), perhaps you’ll think about starting your own and picking up where I left off.
I thank you all for nearly three great years as a member of Shreveport’s small-but-active blogging community. If you’ve got questions, comments, compliments, or complaints, I may still be reached at savoringshreveport[at]gmail dot com.
