We had our reasons. The main one - MONEY. You see, ATL Bite Life is a labor of love. This thing was started because we knew there was no one out here doing what we were doing. Who else has the interest in food AND the connections to the biggest and hottest Hip-Hop and R&B stars on the planet like us?? Not a nan nother (Mike Epps voice)! But, alas, this doesn't pay the bills . . . YET. I mean, sure, we've made a few bucks, gotten a few free meals, even had some really big meetings with some really important people. However, I still have to get in the trenches from time to time and get to the paper.
Somewhere along my paper route, I lost my way. ATL Bite Life became a job instead of a passion. It became harder and harder to wake up and post something. Kinda like that girlfriend you used to be so in love with. After a year or so, a few arguments, a little less sex and romance, those feelings turn to "ehh". That was me.
The new year brought some new energy though. No one on the web tried to duplicate our model (not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing). And, I saw a few promos for Atlanta Eats that kinda pissed me off. It's basically our show minus the cool factor. Go figure!
Either way, we're back for the crown this time. No layoffs, no mercy! New posts, new celebs, and even a few curve balls. Should be one hell of a ride. Enjoy!
