Food Bloggers Gain Media Stature

The James Beard Foundation, the “Oscars of the food world,” has given food bloggers a legitimacy these writers didn’t have before. Beginning this month, the Foundation will no longer distinguish between print and online reporting when dishing out its awards.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the amount of writing that food bloggers do can vary from writer to writer, with some bloggers tweeting courses during the meal, while others, like Gastroville, go quiet for months. But just as important, bloggers will cover restaurants that traditional food reporters can’t get to because of time or travel expense. Many of the food bloggers highlighted in the Journal article write their blogs as a side gig (one woman is a model).

If this is your media target, getting a placement on an award-winning site just became a better hit.
