Happy Anniversary: The #WilsonsGuide Blog Turns Nine and Celebrates New Beginnings!

Each and every March officially marks another #WilsonsGuide blog anniversary, and this year I’m excited to announce that it’s been nine years in this blogging game!

Had you told me back in 2010 that I’d still be chugging along, spewing out posts about the places around L.A. that capture my attention, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. A lot has changed since those early years — from my own personal experiences (more about that later!) to the general landscape (less bloggers, the rise of Instagram and social media overall). Quite candidly, it’s sometimes been more than enough to want to throw in the towel, especially as I still have a full-time career. But now, with more than 250 posts, thousands of visitors from around the world and countless memorable experiences, I’ve never been more excited and committed to the possibilities that lay ahead.

Part of what’s on the horizon includes a brand new personal experience I’m eager to share:
I’ve moved to the Bay! 

Yes, this Angeleno — who loves nothing more than beaches and year-round perfect weather and palm trees — has officially moved to the home of fog, the coldest summers ever and hella grey skies. Although L.A. will always have my heart and I’ll still touch down there frequently, I’m also looking forward to exploring another region. I plan to share my NorCal adventures on an ongoing basis, so stay tuned for recommendations in and around Oakland/San Francisco, and put the Bay on your list of places to visit soon, too.

Here’s to another nine years and to expanding within the West Coast. I hope you’ll continue with me on the #WilsonsGuide journey as we embark on adventures in L.A., the Bay and beyond!

Have you ever lived and/or visited the Bay? Where are some of your “must-visit” suggestions? Drop them in the comments section below!


  1. I can't go to San Fran without visiting Mama's. Love that place! The lines are long, but I always have a good time waiting with friends.

  2. Congrats on your Blogiversary! Much success to you!
