Are You A Food Blogger? Let Me Link You.

This picture has nothing to do with this post. It just makes me want a raspberry.

I learn something new about food from fellow bloggers every week--a restaurant to try, a recipe to cook, a drink to make, the knowledge that I'm not alone in polenta frustration.

I know it's considered horribly uncouth to email another blogger and ask them to link to you. And I know that some foodbloggers complain that they are drowning in rude request for links--the nerve of the newbies. My philosophy? The more, the merrier, and if I don't already know about your blog, please tell me. If you'll forgive the metaphor, foodblogs are a never-ending smorgasbord -- I like to taste a little of as many blogs as possible, and almost every one I've tried has at least a yummy morsel or two.

So--if you blog about food in LA or beyond and you're not on my blogroll to the right, let me know. Post a comment or shoot me an email erinskitchen [at] gmail [dot] com with the name of your blog and a link, and I'll add you. Don't have a blog or you're already on there? Then share one of your favorites that's not on my list, and I can add that too. Extra bonus points for blogs from my soon-to-be home, New York City.

What a great attitude! I agree -- it's amazing how many great blogs are started practically every day, and I love sampling them. I recently started using Google Reader, and go through a mind-boggling number of blogs every, um, hour :) I try to click through, though, mostly to encourage new bloggers who keep track of every new visitor -- I remember what that was like!

My favorite new and new-to-me finds are:

It is great to see the variety out there, I am always finding new and great ideas, attitudes, or visiting places or doing things I might not otherwise have the opportunity to! I will add you as a link and please feel free to link to me at http://play-with-food.blogspot.com.

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

Yes, that's a great attitude!

I'm from Switzerland and I blog about food, so if you are willing to link me, I'd be pleased to do the same with your blog!

Thanks!

Hey Deborah and Rosa--thanks for stopping by and sharing your blogs.

Nina--thanks for the list. Without even looking at the blog, I know i'll love "a chicken in every granny cart" just by the title!!

Marce said...

hey, I think you know my blog because you linked to me once, but just as a reminder, it´s http://pipinthecity.wordpress.com

And, for NYC blogs, I´d recommend http://smittenkitchen.com (probably my favorite food blog) and http://thewednesdaychef.blogspot.com
oh and http://gourmetpeasant.blogspot.com/

Erin S. said...

Marce--Thanks for the reminder--I often link to folks in my posts and forget to add to the sidebar. I've gotta include some Buenos Aires bloggers!!

hi erin,

she's one of my favorite NYC bloggers even though i wouldn't go to most of the restaurants she blogs about.

and you can link me if you want: thehalfozjoint.blogspot.com

themirthmobile said...

Erin S. said...

Douglas--Like ships passing in the night :) Sweet Napa is Nina, the first comment on this post. And you're right, she's great--I want a Whiskey Bar!!

Awww... Now I don't feel special anymore.

Banu said...

I just cannot get enough of food blogs. You would think a carrot is a carrot but it can be glazed, grilled, mashed etc etc. It goes on and on. I love to blog about foods from my culture and around the world. I mix it with a twist of this and a sqeeze of that. I would love to be added to your list. www.banuskitchen.blogspot.com Best Wishes and don't forget to clean your plate! Banu

I am a new food blogger and I am learning and paging through the net almost every night looking for other food blogs. I wanted to say that I really like yours so far, and your eye with the camera is great. I don't have time to post every day because I am a full time mom and a full tiem student but I try at least once a week. ok enough about me my blog is http://fruitcakeornuts.blogspot.com however I got some advice from another blogger and she told me blogs are also about the story and to add a little more story to my posts. ok well thank and I am off to look at the rest of your blog.

Kate said...

Thanks for having me on your site, Erin! And I am really relieved to see I am not alone in polenta frustrations!
