After keeping it going for an amazing five years, the local food blog Champaign Taste is going on hiatus for the summer. Though from the official announcement, it sounds like it could be a more permanent break:
Maybe it'll lead right back to this blog, in the fall. Maybe I'll end up doing something else with my spare time, and we'll disband the corporation and send massive disbursement checks to the investors. Hard to say at the moment. But I'll let you know when the summer winds to a close.
As someone who makes minor contributions to an online magazine (definitely not a blog), I am very impressed that Lisa Morgan has kept if up for five years. Burnout is certainly part of the deal. Here's hoping she comes back from the break refreshed and reinvigorated. If not, her site has unarguably changed the way C-U thinks about food and the local restaurant scene.
