Blogs, Blogs, Blogs! Every 'Blog' Thread in SE Talk History (Almost)

In the "Linking to your own blog" topic in Talk earlier today, arm1970 wanted help finding a link to a thread where SE'ers with blogs listed their blog names and URLs. I found it for arm, but ... There are actually A FREAKIN' TON of "blog" topics in the Talk archives—including several more "SE'er blog roll calls." I thought it would be fun to list them all here, after the jump ...... More

The Secrets of Successful Food Blogging, via Twitter

The South By Southwest Interactive panel "The Secrets of Successful Food Blogging" wrapped up less than an hour ago. We hear from panelist Zach Brooks that it wasn't recorded, and until someone blogs it, we'll have to rely on the pointillist picture emerging from Twitteronia. Searching the hashtag #foodsxsw gives you the tweets of folks in attendance (those who bothered to hashtag their tweets, anyway). We've excerpted the most interesting ones. Panelists were Zach Brooks (Midtown Lunch), Cathy Erway (Not Eating Out in New York), Kalyn Denny (Kalyn's Kitchen), and Addie Broyles (Relish Austin)—moderated by Rachel Kramer Bussel (Cupcakes Take the Cake). Tweets below occur roughly in order. On Post Frequency and Traffic kittygutz: Don't get wrapped up in... More

Food Blogging as Wunderkammer

Photograph from orionoir on Flickr Julian Dibbel opines on how blogs relate to the fantastical Wunderkammer, a metaphor that can also be applied to food blogs (and busy kitchen cupboards): The genealogy of Web logs points not to the world of letters but to the early history of museums—to the “cabinet of wonders,” or Wunderkammer, that marked the scientific landscape of Renaissance modernity: a random collection of strange, compelling objects, typically compiled and owned by a learned, well-off gentleman. A set of ostrich feathers, a few rare shells, a South Pacific coral carving, a mummified mermaid—the Wunderkammer mingled fact and legend promiscuously... [via The Last Appetite]... More

Whose Beer Blog Is This?

brewblog.com Anheuser Busch and Miller have historically fought over the beer market, with the former ahead by nearly 30 percent of sales. Beer blogging, however, could change all that. Enter Brew Blog, the brainchild of two Miller communications consultants who created the web media arm as a source of daily-updated beer industry analysis. It's not trying to be Miller-centric, but instead cover beer news, with topics ranging from new Australian craft beers to those Heineken mini-kegs and Costco's creation of a generic-brand German lager. There are, however, a bunch of Miller press releases sprinkled in between. The site doesn't hide its Miller affiliation, showcasing the "brought to you by..." message prominently on the homepage, but corporate blogging asks an interesting... More

Ed Levine Talks About Food Blogging

In the latest installment of his FN Dish video series, Adam "Amateur Gourmet" Roberts interviews food bloggers Luisa Weiss (The Wednesday Chef), Amanda Kludt (Eater), and our own Ed Levine (Serious Eats overlord) to find out what motivates their eating and bleating.

Gardening in the Third Person

This is not Martha gardening. Martha Stewart's most recent blog post title reads "Planting shallots in my garden"—if by "planting shallots in my garden," you mean "somebody else planting shallots in my garden."... More

Education Op: The Ins and Outs of Food Blogging

Those of you interested in starting a food blog of your own—or current bloggers who just want to learn more—might be interested in class taught by Matt Armendariz (mattbites.com; that's him at right). Taking place July 15 (1:30 to 3:30 p.m.) at the Whole Foods Bowery location in New York City, Armendariz's lecture and demo "will discuss what food blogging is and how it has changed the landscape of food writing and accessibility. He'll also discuss what to blog about, how to take better food photos, and the basics of food styling." (Sign up here.) I'm particularly interested in Armendariz's tips on photography and food styling, since he's adept at creating beautiful shots. [via Matt Bites]... More
