I don't understand the BLOG/ BLOGS dropdown [2012].

Kris in Beijing | | Jul 17, 2012 02:35 PM

On the non-mobile site, from the top, L->R Videos. Recipes. Blogs. Chowhound. My Saved Boards.

Click directly on BLOGS: only get the latest article written by John Birdsall.

Select CHOW DAILY from the dropdown: a page of huge pictures, each followed by article briefs and a READ MORE link, ALL of the John Birdsall articles are incorporated here, also.

Select BEST OF CHOWHOUND from the dropdown: a page of 200 word mini-articles that are identified by a board. Currently: San Fran/Home Cooking/Boston/NYC then essentially repeat that list. Each article ends with a "Discuss" question. Of the 30 on the first 3 pages, only 5 have any comments at all, and none of those have more than 4 comments.

At the bottom of the page: L->R Videos. Recipes. Blogs. Discussion.
Under each, depending upon title length, there's a list of 4, 5, or 6 items under each. The Blogs list includes the same items from the BEST OF CHOWHOUND.

Here's the problem -- IMHO, these things aren't really blogS. yes, I suppose that the BLOG tab directs to ONE blog, written by Birdsall. How is a digest a blog? Are quickie articles, followed by a SNL Coffeetalk style "Discuss," are those blogs??

I really feel like there must be a bunch of content on CHOW that I'm just not accessing.
BloggerS I could be reading.
What am I doing incorrectly?
