    It is a pleasure when culinary professionals use the Blogosphere as more than a billboard for their businesses and share their love of food in ways meanful to the home cook. Good food writing is even more exceptional.

  11. Robin Says:

    I like TasteSpotting (great pictures) and FoodBlogs.com (a lot of blogs on one site). I found several new blogs that I never heard of on these sites.

  12. Mike Licht Says:

    Robin: I share your admiration for TasteSpotting.

    Foodblogs is, appropriately enough, a “feed.” It lists the registered food blog sites, with tne most recent posts on top. This is of some use but there is no annotation or category structure, just the title and first paragraph of the most recent post on each blog. This does not make for great reading. A great concept, but eyes glaze over pretty quickly. Another issue: as of this date, over 60 registered blogs have not posted a single item.

    Hey! Thanks for including me in this illustrious group.
