CBS News Links!

Whee! I’ve been discovered by the national media!

CBS News has a blog about blogs called, of all things, Blogophile.

Melissa McNamara did a roundup of food oriented blogs and there I am, at the end of the list:

Candy Blog: A stylish blog, featuring the latest in candy reviews and analysis of trends in all sorts of candy. It will make you hungry.

The latest food blogging tempest in a teapot was brought on by Food & Wine’s column about food blogs (which frustratingly has no links in the text, you have to click on a separate page for the black book listing), In the Belly of the Blog by Pete Wells. It makes some interesting points about food blogging, which should be more than just what you ate. Some blogs do a fantastic job (and plenty that I read regularly were left off his list). I think the biggest thing I can take away from his commentary is the importance of staying on message. CandyBlog.net is about candy ... it’s candy reviews with the occasional analysis of the candy marketplace, nostalgia and of course escaping through consumption. Half of candy, in my opinion, is the look of it, so I strive to give you good pictures.

The great thing is that it doesn’t matter what columnists think about food blogging. The world of blogs means that you can find an audience for whatever you’re writing. Someone out there might just be interested in that cheese sandwich you ate.
