Food Blog Findings

Reading other food blogs is my favorite way to keep in touch with what is going on around the world. I have found that regardless of hometown location, food bloggers are often very similar people, with their main goals being to learn new things and share their passion and knowledge with others. I am beginning to feel like I have met more New Yorkers online, through Lovescool, than offline. Maybe I need to get out more, but it’s the quality of people and similarity with myself that suprises me every time I get a note from another food blogger. They are often much more interesting than anyone I meet on the street. This is also true for those I have met around the world, like Keiko (Nordljus) from the UK, Cheryl (Buttercream and Roses) from Georgia, Shuna (Eggbeater) from San Francisco and many more. These are all of the kinds of people that make a difference in the world, and we are lucky to have a forum like blogging that allows everyone to find each other.

My only problem is not having the time to sit down to read them all, and keep up with new blogs coming out daily. For this reason, I am glad when articles about other food blogs are written, like the one I read recently on Cravings. I like the way Celia Cheng introduces each blog, because I can sense her respect for each one. In her listing she mentions The Hungry Cabbie, The Paupered Chef, Slice, The Strong Buzz, Cha Xiu Bao, Nordljus, Cupcake Bakeshop, She Loves NY and The Food Section. Go check them out – maybe you’ll find something new and inspirational. I have to admit I hadn’t read Cha Xiu Bao before, but with a name like that (it’s Chinese for steamed pork bun, one of my favorite dim sum items) I have to know more.

I also must thank Cupcake Bakeshop and Nordljus for mentioning Lovescool as one of their favorites. I’m not worthy! They are both fantastic sites that I read often. Many of the sites mentioned on cravings are NYC based, so hopefully another list will come out soon with an international focus. Maybe I’ll set out to do the interviews myself. It’s on the list of many things I’d like to do.

You are worthy!

We certainly do have a special connection Kelli. I enjoy reading your blog during the best and worst times. I think my favorite thing besides always being inspired by your love of baking is your honesty. I know first hand how hard it is to even take time to write when you are so busy, but the best part is sharing your experiences.
Keep up the great work!

I can’t agree more with Cheryl. You have and always will be my inspiration, Kelli!

None of my friends love cooking and baking as much as I do, so food blogs have become a large part of my life. I love the photography, some of it better than magazines, and what new dishes I just have to try.

Thanks for the heads up regarding the post on Cravings. It’s very helpful.
