Food Bloggers Meet at Blogher
Food bloggers have a pretty active community, with lots and lots of events, both in the real world and online. When I met more than 20 food bloggers at the Blogher conference, it was obvious to me how people are united by their passions.
Not that I didn't expect everyone to be nice, but truly I was overwhelmed by what a sense of comraderie there was among the food bloggers. We had some pretty famous folks in the group, but you wouldn't have known it when we introduced ourselves. Everyone seemed more focused on our connectedness through the love of food than anything else. For me, meeting some of these people was the highlight of the conference.
In no particular order, other than the order they signed my notebook, here are the food bloggers who attended the "birds of a feather" meet-up on Saturday morning:
- Fatemah from Gastronomie, who blogs about restaurants in San Francisco.
- Shuna from Eggbeater, a real chef, also in the San Francisco area
