According to some technogeek resource that is so super specially techie that I actually forgot what it was, there’s a new blog born every minute. Or is it every second? That’s just an average, because my guess is that it’s probably more like every ten minutes, but the rate at which food blogs are literally exploding into the blogosphere raises that average to the astounding overall statistic.
Most of the food blogs are personal diaries with photos that chronicle daily or weekly cooking and eating. Some focus on a country's or cultural cuisine, or even on a specific food type. Some food blogs follow many more restaurant adventures (like me!), and some others are more food news-oriented, picking up bits and bites and gourmet gossip and consolidating them all in one delicious blog spot. Whatever the specific focus (on non-focus, as it may be), the underlying shared theme is always one thing...food.
Enter swish swashbuckling slashfood, an uber blog that covers all things foodie from every corner of the world with a huge team of contributors who range in background from stay-at-home kitchen cooks to professional chefs, from amateur blog-for-hobby-ers to professional food journalists. It launched on Friday with a backlog of about 200 delicious pre-launch posts. What a splash, slashfood!
