15 Food Blogger Trends of 2012 That Need to Go

As January approaches, it's a time for new beginnings, new journeys and changes in our lives. It's also the time to take stock of the previous year and jettison the old, the mundane, the things that are holding us back or that clog up our lives. And you know what? As food bloggers, we can apply this valuable process to our own blogs....more

Hotel Fairmount

Is the Hotel offering any type of discount? What other hotels are near by? 

I too am looking for a roommate

I was late to the draw when planning for this conference. The Fairmont has no rooms available. Would someone like to cut their cost and share a room with me? I promise that I can be normal :) 

Food Blogging: Ten Things I've Learned in Five Years

It's challenging for me to remember exactly when I wrote my first post five years ago, but I'm fairly certain it was sometime late this month. If web years are anything like that of dog years, then that is quite a good length of time. I searched the archives but knew before I began that I'd long ago deleted the first few posts because they were only worthy of being the best examples of aimless wandering.

Killing Her Softly

I don’t want to get out of bed. I’m afraid to actually.  If I get up, I’ll have to look out the window.  Then I’ll know.  If my dog is alive or not.              “If she’s dead in the morning,” husband had said, “I’ll put her in the Honda and take her to work.  So you all don’t have to--  You know . ....more

What's Not to Love About Google's New Recipe Search? Plenty.

Whether you’re a food blogger who publishes recipes or you’re trying to find a great mac and cheese recipe for dinner, you just might not love Google’s new Recipe View. I don’t love it. Now, I’m neither a programmer, nor a webmaster, nor an expert. I’m a magazine food writer turned part-time blogger five years ago. I have two food blogs, a decent page rank on the more established blog, and a published archive of more than 800 recipes -- not one of which you’ll be able to find with Google’s new recipe search feature. ...more
