While I still need to write lots more on this site, I did get published on the blog of Boston University’s Metropolitan College Gastronomy Program Blog. Check it out at https://sites.bu.edu/gastronomyblog/2019/09/27/summer-at-rare-book-school/
I am not an active food blogger. I tried for a bit a few years ago, and found that I lost focus quite quickly. Instead of blogging I became a candidate for a Master of Liberal Arts in Gastronomy at Boston University. However, I continue to be amazed by people who blog successfully and also the mechanics behind running a successful blog. That is why I am happy to be attending the International Food Blogger Conference in Juneau, granted at a higher price than the active bloggers. I hope that this week in Juneau will allow me a glimpse into this world that is currently creating an amazing amount of content. I also hope that my greater understanding of the blogger world will allow me to be a part of the conversation about how we will archive these food blogs in the future. My information science side is also interested in how food blogs in other countries differ from those in the United States.
