Here is the first issue of Cellarer’s guide to the most popular food blogs. The contest includes all personal sites but the table shows only the 200 ‘best’ — ‘best’ is evaluated with public website metrics.
Herebelow is an overview of the results.
A comprehensive pool of candidates
The number of websites that I retrieve metrics for is 500. This list is close to being complete: it includes almost all the websites that qualify.
The small against the big
I chose to not include magazines, that is sites that are written by many contributors. Press and firms have their means of getting known. I’d rather promote unique voices (blogs). So the top food blogs is a convenient tool for getting to know prominent culinary authors. Please tell me if you spot an item in the list that would have more than 2 contributors.
How to participate
Websites are automatically included in the contest as soon as I learn of their existence. To be eligible to the next issue of the Top food blogs, the below conditions must be met:
- The main topic should be food.
- The articles must be written by one or two persons (not a team) — so as to screen firms.
