10 G’s.

 

We’d like to say we saw this coming, but it has been a true surprise to see our blog grow so quickly:

Vegan Fish Tacos reached 10,000 hits.

The blog has recently undergone some stylistic changes and we are hoping to introduce more in the near future. We are also planning on releasing some music and special posts in the coming week to celebrate our first real milestone. Anyways, we’re really looking forward to our next 10,000, and hope you return many times over between now and then.
