As I mentioned on my previous post before, I have been around the blogosphere for quite sometimes, but I feel food-theme  is slightly different than any other blog themes. So let me lay out some things that makes me love food-bloging

Food-bloging lets you “move” beyond posting,reading and commenting. At first I made the blog as a recipes documentary, then I join the Daring Bakers  and KBB, I ‘ve been challenged to new baking methods and techniques , I never thought  I would even come near them.

Inside the Food -bloggers community all kind stuffs are created  from recipes showcases, monthly events, alliances (I know I put only a link to each subject but there are quite a few of links to name if you look out there) to a medium to look for a “parent” (how cool is that?). These things allow you to  be easily exposed to the  foodies world.

I started Flickr-ing long before I even start blogging, but I made my new account  just to compliment my food blog and also to join this and that. Now besides Flickr, twitter is  “THE” new rage… becoming a foodie tweep keeps you  almost 24×7 “in-touch” with FOOD!!!

And after all those if you are still hungry, then just sit back and have some cookies 🙂
