Perhaps you’re a dim sum disciple of the venerable Yank Sing located in downtown San Francisco, but there’s plenty of other places in the Bay Area to snack on this delightful Chinese fare.
Well, after my post on food websites last week I received a surprising response from readers asking why I didn’t include more information about blogs, questioning my rationale between blogs and websites, and asking for blog recommendations–specifically local ones. So in a way, this is a continuation of last week’s post, a Part 2, blogger-style.
I spend entirely too much time on the Internet. Sometimes I’m working, sometimes I go into a Facebook Scramble trance, and other times, I am taking a look at what other food bloggers are doing.
There are, for better or for worse, a dizzying amount of food blogs out there. And most of them are, frankly, crap unappetizing. The sinister flash photography, the “look-what-I-had-for-dinner” sharing, the heavy reliance on the exclamation point, the word “yummy” or the suffix “-icious.” It’s enough make me show you what-I-had-for-dinner. After I have eaten it.
And don’t get me started on the number of cupcake blogs out there or I shall cry.
Fortunately, there are a few places of refuge: sites that sparkle like the Emerald City set against the background of a sky blackened by millions of flying, food blogging monkeys.
