The Food Blogging World

20-Jun-2005

When I joined this blogging world, specifically food blogging, I really didn’t know what to expect.  I had done some looking at blogs, lurking and watching but not participating – really just popping in now and then to see what was going on.  And then I started my own, being pushed the final few steps by a couple of friends – not that I was unwilling. 

I’ve been at it now about six months and I have been amazed at the community and how nice so many people are!  Not that I thought they wouldn’t be, but the time people have taken to reach out in various ways has surprised and delighted me.  People go the extra mile in many ways.  And the community is wonderfully large and diverse – it’s great to see how these blogs reach across time zones, countries, styles, age groups, every possible category you can imagine – there really are no borders of any kind.  And because of that we all win, being exposed to a wide, wide world of not just food, but also cultures and personalities and lives.

Although I’ve experienced this from early on, the last couple of weeks several things have happened that have caused me to think about how great being part of this world is.  I really appreciate all my friends in this virtual meeting place.  Thanks to all of you!

    B, I totally agree with your sentiments. I have only been involved in food blogs for a few months and already I have made so many new friends around the world. The memes, the events and the communications between so many other foodies is phenomenal. I want to personally thank you for your\’s was the first blogger site I encountered and your site stimulated my interest in continuing to get involved.
