Interviews: Kitchen Flops and Funnies

We are another week closer to our exciting BlogHer Food Conference in Seattle this June 8-9. Last week I asked two of our speakers how they got started in food blogging.

First off, the question is: What’s your biggest food blogging flop?...more
@BlogHer I somehow managed to over-cook my first Crock Pot roast.more

BlogHer Food '12 Pre-Conference: Why Did You Start Food Blogging?

Suddenly it’s mid-April and I feel like we’re spiraling toward summer at a high rate of speed. Of course, that means that before we know it, BlogHer Food '12 will be upon us! As people begin to wonder what to pack for the Seattle weather and make plans to meet up with fellow bloggers, we thought we would bring you some pre-conference buzz and excitement via some mini-interviews with our speakers. We’re hitting randomly selected speakers with a quick question that we think will be of interest to those attending and those watching from home. To kick things off, we thought we’d ask two speakers the question everyone wants to know: Why did you start food blogging?...more
I would answer this if I could remember life before blogging. Was there life before blogging?more

Kathryn Finney & Nelly Yusupova Answer: Did You Always Know You Would Be an Entrepreneur?

BlogHer Entrepreneurs ‘12 is in a week and two days! Over the next few days, we plan on bringing you some great interview questions with some of our speakers and mentors. Why?
