Food - any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink in order to maintain life and growth.” We surely have come a long way from the mere definition of “Food”
Food Blogging - The buzz phrase of the moment seems to be ‘with the rise of social media...’ One can barely wake up in the morning, put on one’s dressing gown and pop down to the kitchen to make a nice cup of earl grey without hearing it being bandied around somewhere. But food blogging isn’t actually that new a phenomenon.
Well before we came along though, shortly after the then called ‘world wide web’ was commercialised, way back in 1995, people quickly took to the net to share their stories about food across the world. When Jeff Lim and Bob Okumura launched Chowhound, food bloggingwas official born!
Of course, though, not everyone’s endgame is to make a name for themselves with their blog. While some may start out with the ambition of being the next big thing, their very own cookbook and, perhaps, a slot on Food Network, for many it still represents something more low key. Blogging has allowed us to share our interests, whether on food or any other subject that may take our fancy, meet like-minded people and gives us the opportunity to dedicate something to our passion.
Food Bloggers Awards, considers the quality of the writing, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page or, of course, the quality of the photographs and the level of love displayed in the taking of them. It is our celebrations of bloggers, cooks, photographers and travelers who have taken to the web to tell stories and get us all excited to stand in front of the stove. And this is your chance to tell us who to celebrate.
Honour those bloggers who bring something special to your life whether every day or only now and then.
