~ John Lee ~51 followers!

I broke the magic 50 follower (google subscribers) number on my blog blacktieandflipflops (I have more facebook-networked blogs followers but the google number is important because 50 is where things really start to happen in good searches and stuff like that.

Relaunching the blog with a strong emphasis on food has changed things dramatically both in terms of followers and people recognizing me on the street which leads to even more foodie opportunities.
