Today is Blog Day 2005, an event that was created to help broaden our blog horizons. So many blogs get created every day that it’s impossible to keep up with all, and most of us find ourselves visiting the same favorite blogs, the ones where we feel at home and comfortable, where we know who’s writing and what it’s about, the ones that have been around for long enough that we feel safe they’re not just going to die on us once we’re hooked — isn’t it horribly frustrating when that happens?
So. Out of this simple observation, Blog Day says: “We want to read more blogs! Tell us about five new ones!” The definition of “new” here is a little fuzzy — newly created, new to you, new to your readers? — so I will simply offer a selection of five newishly created or discovered food blogs:
- A Finger in Every Pie. I have been in touch with Julie from New York ever since she sent me a wonderful care package last year, and I really enjoy reading her blog because her writing is just as generous and warm as her selection of goodies was.
- Anne’s Food. Anne writes from Sweden, where she cooks and bakes a lovely and personal mix of dishes and desserts, some of them with a Scandinavian inspiration. Anne’s blog has been around for almost a year now, but it wasn’t on my radar until recently — and that’s actually a good thing, so much archived stuff to browse through!
- Food Migration. Cindy has just moved to Paris to attend culinary school. Classes started a week ago, they’re exciting and exhausting and fun, and Cindy shares it all with us. It is probably going to be hard for her to find time for the blog, but I hope she does because we all want to learn what she learns!
- Gluten-free Girl. Shauna lives in Seattle and documents her (successful) attempts to eat deliciously well on a gluten-free diet. A few dear people around me have to eat under these constraints and I know how hard it is, so I commend Shauna for having such a positive attitude.
- Seven Spoons. Fresh design, cute logo, superb photography and inspiring choice of recipes, brought to us by Tara from Ontario.
