[Misc] Announcing Food Blog Memes

Everyone knows by now - it is difficult to keep up with all the memes in the Food Blogging world. Ronald's IMBB site is a great place to go to check in on the 'original big memes' like IMBB, WBW and SHF, but many others have sprung up which he doesn't cover. (By the way - if you are hosting a meme, or have invented one - don't forget to write and tell Ronald - he may put it on his site if he has time). Also - I don't know about you - but I often have problems loading up the IMBB site and then can't find the info I need quickly enough there. No harm, then, in repeating it here.

The long and short of all this is - please feel free to post about any food memes you stumble across in your daily blog reading here on this site. (make a new post for the announcements - no need to bury them in the comments). It will help the whole community for us all to have an extra reminder of when and where they are happening. Food Blog Scool shows up on food porn watch so announcing memes here just might help more people to meme aware.

Talking of food porn watch, it's creator, has announced the latest Sugar High Friday on the theme Tantalizing Titillating Tempting Tarts Deadline: Friday June 17th. That's soon - get baking.

And Viv, at Seattle Bob Vivant is hosting IMBB 16 - on the theme of eggs which I could happily post about every day between now and the deadline of June 24-26, cos I love me some eggs.

Also check out I Heart Bacon for this months (brand new format) Does My Blog Look Good in This food photo meme, which, incidentally, was started by Ronald at IMBB.

dine & dish no. 3 will be announced shortly - maybe monday...

and in case you are wondering what that is - we dine out somewhere during the month (maybe more this time to allow for that holiday in the states in july) that fits within a theme and then post about it. a summary of everyone's experiences go up shortly thereafter. fun :)

so far the themes have been:
d&d no. 1 -- BAR FLY, which was dining at the bar or in a bar-bar - sushi bar, etc.

d&d no. 2 -- QUEEN OF CUISINE, which was eating anywhere owned or run by a lady.

d&d no. 3 - who knows? coming soon...

Well this is just a really small thing.. and not really food related but Indira from Mahandi started weekend cat blogging, she asked me to join in and now Ana from Pumpkin Pie Bungalow has asked to join in as well. If you would like to join in just let me know, in the comments on eat stuff.

It is really easy, just post a picture of your cat on saturday or sunday

I also found it a bit frustrating to try to keep all the memes straight never mind what days they are all on! I found I ended up missing a lot of them.

I tend to use my blog at least in part as sort of as base for my own blogging resources, with the links that I regularly use, so I don't have to hunt for them.

A propos of that, I keep a (mostly) up to date running links list of all the food blogging memes on the right hand column of my blog. Each time a new food blog meme edition is announced I update it with the meme name and edition number, a link, the name of who's hosting and the theme. If you wander by, let me know if I'm missing a meme that you want to see up there.
