About Endless Craving:
Endless Craving is devoted to my personal journey through food. I love to cook, love to eat, and love to learn, and the challenge I have presented myself in the form of this blog marries the three together nicely.
About the author:
Hi! I’m Mari. I’m 27 and reside in Binghamton, NY. In addition to being a lover of good food, I’m also a geek and a tech-head. I’m a burgeoning designer for both print and the web, and I like to build computers in my spare time.
So what’s with the weird post titles?
If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you’ll have probably noticed that the non-restaurant review or informational posts are titled some fairly odd things. They’re song lyrics, and if the lyrics themselves don’t, then the song being referenced will usually have something to do with the post in general. It’s a holdover from when I was writing a personal blog, and I suspect it’ll remain a part of my style for years to come.
When does the blog update?
Essentially, when I feel like it. I started the blog with the goal of updating several times a week. That never ended up happening, and my goal shifted to updating once a week. That also didn’t work. It’s due in part to my work schedule, in part to procrastination, and in part to the fact that I’m working with limited funds, and there are times when I genuinely can’t afford a trip out somewhere, or to buy some new thing that I don’t really need. It’s also why you’re not likely to see me review too many fine dining establishments, outside of Binghamton Restaurant Week participants.
That being said, one of my goals for this year (2013) is to post more regularly, eventually working my way up to an actual update schedule. I think I have an idea as for what to do during my lean months, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
But why Binghamton? Binghamton sucks!
Well, there’s the fact that it’s where I currently live. So it’s, y’know, convenient. I’m not going to drive an hour-plus just to grab something to eat. That’s ridiculous.
Also, it’s attitudes like that. I’ve lived in this general area all my life, and it’s something I’ve heard from locals and out-of-towners alike. But it seems to me that the people that disparage the area like that haven’t actually looked around at what it has to offer. There’re a lot of places in the area that deserve some good press. I’d like to give it to them.
