As a blogger, I have been invited to take part in many communities, and I have joined a few.
But once I have created a profile, I seldom go back to these sites.
Foodbuzz, which celebrated its official launch last week, is different. I am proud to be one of its featured publishers, and I hope I can pay back the venture's generosity (Free gifts! Free blogger cards! Money to upgrade my blog!) by becoming more active on the colorful, light-hearted community site.
At launch, the Foodbuzz community ranks as one of the top ten Internet destinations for food and dining (according to Quantcast), with bloggers based in 45 countries and 863 cities serving up daily food content.
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 (wow!) 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 “buzzing” 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.
I'm a part of it all -- and I just received a great Foodbuzz apron and a spiffy green spatula to prove it.
