So, in a bit of Philly surfing the other night I stopped by Philly Future, which featured a link to Fork You, a Philly food blog. And, in checking out the personal blog of its proprietor Scott McNulty – Blankbaby – I found myself thinking, Gee, that names sounds awfully familiar. I wonder how long he’s been around?
The answer to that question is two months longer than me. Which presents a conundrum: is Scott the longest-running blogger in Philadelphia?
Technically, yes – he made 11 posts prior to the launch of this fine establishment. However, said flagship posts were made from Yonkers, New York, not Philadelphia.
Now, let it be known that I am not one to hang on to my tagline via imagination or technicality – after all, that’s why I turned against Ms. Clinton earlier this year. At the same time, I don’t know that it’s fair for any carpetbagger with a long-standing blog to just roll into town and usurp me.
I’m really not sure what to make of this development. Have I been legitimately dethroned? Do we share the title, in different capacities? Have I found my nemesis?
I’m thinking I might have to drop by Fork You Live next Saturday to have a little
duel showdown thumb war chat with this “Scott.”
Scott McNulty says
I’ve only been in Philly for 5 years or so… therefore I am not a threat to your title.
I have been blogging for 9 years or so myself (though as you pointed out I started out in New York).
Scott – Thank you for dropping by! Any competitiveness is almost entirely in jest – I’m alwayS thrilled to find any blogger with archives as deep as mine, no matter what their location.
Fosters is fiancée’s favorite store in at least a mile radius, so perhaps we’ll meet you in person on the 6th!
We’d love it if you guys came down to Foster’s for Fork You Live next Saturday!
