Food Blog Forum Launch & Camera Giveaway!


I can’t believe we did it.

No…I can’t believe that Diane and I were in Mexico 6 weeks ago at Rancho La Puerta, brainstormed an idea to create Food Blog Forum and kaBLAM!

We built it, thanks to the genius work of Todd and Scott (each of our better halves).

Food Blog Forum is just that…a forum dedicated to food bloggers. It’s a site where we can all help each other, discuss hot issues and read expert advice. It’s where we are going to spill all of our secret tricks to food photography, lighting, monetization, social media and whatever else we can think of!

Oh, and we’re giving away one of these babies!:

    Signing up for the forum is not working. There’s not a contact link on the page either. I thought I’d let you know here.

    I keep getting a “only lower case allowed” message, which is fine, but when changing to lower case I still get the message.

    I want to join!

      If you would email your preferred username, email address and name to support@foodblogforum.com and I will create your account for you and send you your temporary password.

    Sounds fun!

  7. Michelle — 3/16/10 @ 12:28 pm

    What an amazing idea. This will certainly help break down the walls that blogging ‘competition’ has built – aren’t we all here to inspire and learn from one another?

    You (and Diane!) are a gem!

  8. This is super cool jaden – I am signing up right now!

    I am so happy for you! I am going to TRY to get my Mexican Food blog going. It’s amazing what great authentic food we can get here in South Central Kansas. And I have a gorgeous collection of Mexican Themed Dishware that I want to highlight as well. Really wish I was in LA so I could attend your seminar. GOOD LUCK in your new venture.
