While I’m away on my imaginary vacation, I’m leaving the pantry stocked with posts from Exit 51 that would have been part of the Flashback Friday series. The following originally appeared on 7/10/09 at Exit 51.
As if there were a shortage of websites to consume my daytime productivity, I had to stumble across this post on Bitten where Mr. Bittman opened Pandora’s Box. It was a simple enough question, what food blogs are people reading. In the seven days between when this post went up and when I read it, 619 comments had accumulated. Want to guess how long it took me to take a look at the sites that people recommended? Go ahead, guess.
An entire day. That’s right, approximately eight hours of my life was spent cutting and pasting and clicking on http links. If it weren’t for the fact that some of the recs are blogs I already read, and others were duplicates, lord knows how long it would have taken. In the end, I only bookmarked a few sites but I printed out recipes from some others that I may go back to in the future.
Who knows, some of them may just end up on the blog roll here at Exit 51 for your enjoyment. Time will tell.
But it got me wondering, what food blogs are you reading? I’d love to know.
