Something Surprising I Learned from Food Blogging

A month from today, BlogHer Food '12 will be winding down in Seattle. Can you believe it? We hardly can! There's just so much to do between now and then -- which includes registering for this amazing conference if you haven't yet done so! We're still working to bring you some interesting, bite-sized interviews from our amazing speakers every week, and this week I stepped outside of the food box and asked a thought-provoking question: What's one surprising thing you learned via food blogging? The answers are as unique as the bloggers, which is always a treat....more

BlogHer Food '12: The Fairmont Olympic Hotel and ADA Accessibility

The Fairmont Olympic Hotel, the fabulous host hotel for BlogHer Food '12, is a historic hotel. In fact, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1924 and has seen many visitors over the years including John F Kennedy in 1961 -- who is said to have stayed in the hotel's Presidential Suite.  Given that the hotel is listed as a historic place, any restoration performed has to be done to maintain the original Italian Renaissance architecture and certain things have been grandfathered in. This leaves the hotel with having to provide additional accommodations to be compliant with today's ADA requirements....more

What's Your Favorite Blogged Recipe?

It is always the highlight of my work week to bring you bite-sized interviews with our speakers. With BlogHer Food '12 looming one month and one week away, I really wanted to take the time to ask a couple of our speakers a question that I always ask food bloggers: What's your favorite blogged recipe? I find it so interesting to hear their wide and varied answers. I also ask it because I like to make new things, and who better to ask for a recipe than a food blogger! As such, for our BlogHer Food Bites this week, I have asked two speakers to share their favorites. Their answers are simply awesome....more
I see many amazing food posts daily. I think I am most "wowed" by great food pictures and the ...more

Conference Corner: What I Didn't Know About BlogHer Food

Awkward confession: I've never been to a BlogHer Food conference. I know, this is a terrible thing to confess as the Conference Programming Manager, and I honestly couldn't give you one good excuse as to why I haven't gone before. I mean, I actually blog quite a bit about food, both on my own blog and on my Babble site. I'm an avid cook (sometimes it's even edible, unless it's cookies.). I have a love-love relationship with food, and also with blogging, and yet I've never attended the BlogHer event dedicated to my two favorite things in the world....more
