Do you like food blogs? Maybe have thought about starting one yourself? Do you wish someone could tell you everything you always wanted to know about food blogging (but were afraid to ask)? Well, cupcake hero Rachel Kramer Bussel (of Cupcakes Take the Cake) has decided to round up a variety of bloggers to address these questions as a fun, free food-filled panel presentation at the 2009 South by Southwest Interactive Festival. But it can’t happen unless the proposal gets enough votes by August 29. So if you’d like to help us out — as I am so there as a panelist if this gets chosen — please sign in to the SXSW panel picker site and give 5 stars for “Nom Nom Nom: The Secrets of Successful Food Blogging.”
Here’s the panel’s official description:
- What does it take to build a successful food blog? From niche single-food specific blogs like Cupcakes Take the Cake to broader blogs like Midtown Lunch, we’ll share the secrets of making readers hungry for more and attracting press and advertisers. Free cupcakes.
Panelists include (this may change slightly, but hopefully will stay as is):
Rachel Kramer Bussel (Moderator) of Cupcakes Take the Cake
Nichelle Stephens, Cupcakes Take the Cake
Zach Brooks, Midtown Lunch
Hunter Walker, Editor-at-Large, Digital City (formerly Associate Editor, Gridskipper)
Cathy Erway, Not Eating Out in New York
As you can see, it should be a well-rounded group for some hearty dialogue on food blogging, and isn’t it about time? Please tell your friends, family and anyone else who might be interested at all to vote for this panel (by giving 5 stars) and send us to SXSW. You’ll have to create an account first and then you can browse other panels and events on the site, too. But don’t forget, voting ends August 29th. Any questions on the process, please feel free to email me. Thank you!
