If you’ve been a reader of food blogs during the last year it is very likely you’ve encountered the Foodbuzz banners. They’re hard to avoid. More than one thousand food bloggers are already Featured Publishers of Foodbuzz. And the main Foodbuzz site is currently one of the top ten Internet destinations for food and dining. The Foodbuzz team has already reached this level of achievement even before the official launch of their Featured Publishers community on October 13th.
Foodbuzz announced the launch of their blogger community yesterday and I am very proud to be a part of it. Not only am I a Featured Publisher I was also one of the inaugural bloggers for the “24 Meals, 24 Hours, 24 Blogs” event. This event epitomized my idea of food journalism created by community and for the community. Twenty-four people all over the globe presented the experiences of real people to real events at real time.
Foodbuzz created the community for all of us to gather and share. As Ben Dehan, the Founder CEO of Foodbuzz, said “The Foodbuzz.com Web site is like the stock of a great soup. The Web site provides the base or backbone for bloggers to interact as a community, contribute content, and have that content buzzed by their peers,” But Foodbuzz is not just for bloggers; food lovers from all over the world also benefit from the information available through this community. It is this ability to spread information that makes Foodbuzz such a valuable resource for all.
If you’ve not joined Foodbuzz, even if you’re not a food blogger, do so now!
