I wanted to update everyone on the new Netscape.com's Food and Travel section. There was some discussion about it on here a few weeks ago, but I thought that now that the site has grown in popularity and registered readers, I'd mention it again and share results of a post I made on the site yesterday.
On the new Netscape.com anyone can post content to the site and the top posts get moved to the top of the site, similar to Digg.com. Digg doesn't have a food channel though.
I posted my a link from my own blog about fresh tomato sauce. The posting brought about 50 new readers to my site in 12 hours. While this isn't a huge number, even for relatively small sites like mine, I was happy with the results. I might get one or two regular readers out of it and that would make me happy.
We might try to post our best work on Netscape and see how it works?
Each time you post an article in the Netscape.com system you get to add keywords to it, maybe we use the tag "foodblog" to tag our stuff? This way we could simply find each other's posts on the site and, if we like what we see, vote for each other.
You can also post work of other food writers. I've submitted some of my favorite food blog posts to them.
The site is a Beta and they are always looking for comments and advice from users. If you find it distracting to have the food and travel headlines mixed together, as I do, you might want to mention this to them. The site is run by Jason Calacanis who was the founder of Weblogs Inc. He's posts some interesting thoughts on blogging and the future of promoting content on the web.
