Exciting news — I’ve kept it semi under wraps until my first official post went live.
I recently applied for one of four regional “foodie” blogger positions with a new “large food/recipe” site. That was all I knew from the Bloggers For Hire ad on Freelance Writing gigs. I tried for the ‘heartland’ position (they also wanted a person on the east coast, west coast and in Toronto), sending some writing samples and email of introduction. And I got it!
The site is FoodConnect.com and I actually like it quite a lot, even if I weren’t blogging for them. It’s kind of a Facebook meets Epicurious.com It’s mostly user-generated content in the form of recipes, and you can “friend” people, comment on, review, and post photos of their recipes. One thing I’ve always wished Epicurious would allow is user photos of recipes. I want to see what a dish looks like prepared in a home kitchen. You can also create shopping lists based on recipes you choose, which I like, as we plan our menu a week a time.
I’ll be posting 2-3 times per week along with the other 3 bloggers and two Vancouver-based writers (the company is based there). I hope you’ll come by and comment on my posts. You can see my first couple here:
