Wow! You Can Be a Food Blogger by Traci Vogel (Chow): One of the contributors to Chow's "Grinder" media blog writes a snarky analysis of Regina Schrambling's admittedly patronizing and out-of-date article in the LA Times about how anyone can become a food blogger in a few easy steps. Said blogger then whines that Schrambling should instead have written ?Of Course You Can Be a Food Blogger! But Here Are 20 Reasons You Shouldn?t.? So let me get this straight. Established food bloggers, who for years have piled on any print-media food writer who's complained about the reputability, experience, or talents of bloggers (and believe me, there are a lot of journos who have needlessly mucked about in this swamp), are beginning to tell aspiring food bloggers that it's too late to get into their club? Why, that gives me such a self-righteousness high that I think I can stop drinking coffee for the rest of the day.
