Are food blogs over? (Again?)

Are food blogs over? (Again?)

kmanihot | Sep 4, 2013 09:30 AM

I know there've been threads somewhat similar to this in the past, but since I'm looking for the most up-to-date opinions, I thought I'd start this one.

I've been hearing that "food blogs are over" for at least a decade now, and yet I don't see any signs of death around. I still enjoy several food blogs, and it seems that every time I google a recipe, the best version is always from a blog. I'm frequently in awe not only of the cooking, but also of the styling, photographing, and designing skills of bloggers.

But there are many things in the food blogging world that I find off-putting... for every good book that comes out of a blog, there are ten bad books that are no more than glorified blog postings. Not to mention the corporate blogs hosted by big commercial websites.

I don't mean to sound cranky, I really want to know what everybody thinks of this.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
