Bacon Crunchy Shrimp Roll

Way back in 2006, a year after Son and I started dating, he had ?an idea ?

“You should start a food blog,” he said, “we’ll make so much money!”

This was way back before everybody and their mother were blogging, and food blogs were a new exciting thing nobody was doing yet.

“And, because every blog needs a niche, and because you’re half Japanese, it should be a blog about ?sushi?!”

… never mind that I had never made sushi in my LIFE.

So we started a blog, filled with sushi recipes – I was the recipe creator and sushi maker, and he took care of the photography.

We called it Sushi Day because – obviously, it was about sushi, and my last name is Day, plus it nicely lends itself to our motto that “Every day is a Sushi Day!”

And that is how I started making food on the internet.

All that being said, don’t think we found any success in that. I was a truly terrible food blogger, and as for money? Yeah, we didn’t make jack shit.
