The premise behind Blog Day is simple. Post about 5 blogs new to you, that you find interesting, and watch the tangled web we call the Internet do its grapevine work. It's all about celebrating the diversity of blogosphere and encouraging blog surfers to continue on to sites new to you, and new to them as well. Here are mine:
1. Real Thai
There is nothing like a good bit of food porn to get you on the edge of your seat. Austin takes unbelievably good photos, and he blogs from Bangkok, Thailand, which means that in addition to insatiable food lust, you have to contend with pangs of travel lust as well.
2. Sweet Little Treat
Nicky and Tiffany are Sydneysiders who like all things sweet: the edible and non-edible kind. They are a whiz on the sewing machine and their passion for beautiful fabrics and all things Japanese is totally endearing.
3. Tasting Life
You know Julia is a committed foodblogger when she spends three days baking different recipes in search of the perfect scone. She is constantly baking tasty treats and this girl from the Netherlands writes with such youthful enthusiasm too.
4. Kitesurfing the Menu
I first met Kevin, a travelling Canadian, at a Sydney foodbloggers' meetup over a delicious high tea. Since then he's relocated to Cairns, in the far north of Queensland. His blog is part travel diary, part food diary, and I love reading his encounters and explanations of Australia's peculiar quirks and customs.
5. Still Life With...
It's not until you actually start taking food photos of your own homecooked food, that you realise exactly how talented food stylists and food photographers are. Okay so I've been reading Still Life With... for a number of months now, but it remains one of the most unique, intriguing and professionally composed sites out there. L's site is a fascinating insider's guide to better food photography with tips, tricks and secrets all divulged in no-nonsense plain simple instruction. Post topics are all archived logically for easy reference, and yes, she takes utterly amazing photos too.
Happy Blog Day 2006. Here's hoping you've found some new sites to surf over the coming year.
