It was this comment by Anna that saw me flicking through the latest issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller in the newsagency this morning.
And there, on page 18, as Anna promised, was my latest claim to fame.
It's been derived from our interview in their article of course, but it's still a surreal sight to behold.
It's been an exciting end to the year. Last month I was asked to be included on the blogroll for the City of Sydney's Chinese New Year 2007 website. Apparently GrabYourFork "provide[s] readers with an intimate and personal view of Sydney culture", according to the email sent by their web services team.
The new website looks great, and with so many colourful events on, there'll be plenty of photo (and fooding) opportunities for everyone. It's the Chinese Year of the Pig come 18 February, and that can only be a good thing, surely :)
And finally, GrabYourFork is now being officially archived by PANDORA, the web archive set up by the National Library of Australia. "The National Library and its partners do not attempt to collect all Australian online publications and web sites, but select those that they consider are of significance and to have long-term research value."
So GrabYourFork has been catalogued and added to the National Bibliographic Database (a database of catalogue records shared by over 1,100 Australian libraries) and the National Library online catalogue.
Actually I'm just ecstatic this means I no longer have to worry about backing-up my website. It's gonna be preserved forever by the Library which "will take the necessary preservation action to keep your publication accessible as hardware and software changes over time". Woohoo!
