I've recently added some new links to the left of this post and I wanted to explain them.
Some are what I call "big-league" blogs. They've been online for a while and they draw huge followings. Some were recently nominated for Best of Blog Awards and very rightly so. They are good. The writing is top notch and outside-the-proverbial box. The photographs are delectable. The combine forms and colors and light and shadow in such delightful ways. Where does all this talent come from?
Some of the bloggers appear to be nice people to boot. Some support the whole notion of blogging about food in so many ways. Others encourage new bloggers. Some have become people I can turn to for support and answers to questions I am usually embarrassed to ask.
Some are fairly new, like this blog. Others are really new.
Some are strictly food blogs. Perhaps they might be called recipe blogs.
Others talk about non-food matters, like home and family.
Some are French or Parisian blogs, and I visit them to get information or to bring my upcoming trip a little closer.
Anyway, there is no real rhyme or reason to why these blogs are linked here, except that in some cases I liked the blogs and the bloggers and I want to be as supportive as a number of you were to me last summer when I was trying to figure this whole thing out. I still am. You still are. Thank you.
And the photo? Well, it has nothing to do with links except that it struck me as "food porn."
By the way, special thanks to the kind spirit behind Food Porn Watch.
