Foodbuzz Publisher Community Launches
Being part of the food blogging community is in and of itself, very exciting. I have received emails and comments from Scotland, Italy, Turkey. I have made friends from sea to shining sea and beyond. I have read about new restaurants, new recipes and discovered new cuisines and ingredients. But being part of the Foodbuzz community has been not only fun, but has added a new dimension to food blogging. For those of you who are not familiar with Foodbuzz, it is a blogger community with more than 1,000 blog partners, a global food blogging event and an online platform that captures the real-people, real-time power of food publishing in every corner of the world. At its official launch, the Foodbuzz community ranks as one of the top-10 Internet destinations for food and dining (Quantcast), with bloggers based in 45 countries and 863 cities serving up daily food content.
I am proud to have been a Foodbuzz featured publisher for awhile at a site that recognizes the power of food bloggers and validates their culinary experiences. Foodbuzz is the only online community with content created exclusively by food bloggers and rated by foodies. The site offers more than 20,000 pieces of new food and dining content weekly, including recipes, photos, blog posts, videos and restaurant reviews. Members decide the “tastiness” of each piece of content by voting and “buzz” the most popular posts to the top of the daily menu of submissions. Foodbuzz currently logs over 13 million monthly page views and over three million monthly unique visitors. Need to find a restaurant in a strange city or a recipe for the summer bumper crop of zucchini? Check out Foodbuzz. If you love food, it is the place where other food lovers gather!
Congratulations to the Foodbuzz launch team, and to all the rest of the Foodbuzz community for making this a place where foodies want to be....and keep buzzing!
