What Foodies Read (or Why are Food Blogs so Good?)

Lately, I've been looking at a lot of design blogs and I'm astounded at how bad the writing is. Not only do most not have a clue about to how to use a comma, but they have no faith in their readers and are constantly defining simple words like "tacit." Most of the posts boil down to "Look how cool this photo is."

I am wondering why there is such a difference in food blogs. Regardless of how you feel about food blogs, you can be sure that the vast majority of the well-known ones have great writing. They're witty and intelligent and entertaining beyond the recipe they provide.

I assume it has something to do with what you foodies read? Any other hypotheses?
