I can hardly believe that we have now been doing Weekend Herb Blogging for ten weeks. What started as a joke has now become a full-fledged food blogging event. I am pleased week after week at how creative and informative the posts are that are submitted by food bloggers from around the world.
Now that my garden is completely buried in snow, I am experiencing a creative challenge every weekend deciding what to blog about. Actually, though, this event is about as flexible as you can get. Simply photograph and post about any herb, plant, vegetable, or flower any time over the weekend, and mention Weekend Herb Blogging with a link back to Kalyn's Kitchen. Then send the permalink for your post to me (kalynskitchen *at* comcast *dot* net) by midafternoon on Sunday (Utah time) and I will feature your post in the recap on Sunday night. (If you use Technorati you can also tag the post with Weekend Herb Blogging, but that's optional.)
Other weekend events include Weekend Cat Blogging at Eat Stuff, Weekend Dog Blogging at Sweetnicks, My Indian Kitchen at Mahanandi, and a new event called Weekend Cookbook Challenge that I am kind of intrigued by (since I have so many cookbooks). Entries for the first cookbook challenge, spotlight a recipe from your oldest cookbook, are due by December 12, so I might work on that over the weekend. Maybe a combined herb/oldest cookbook recipe? What do you think?
Something else happening out in the food blogosphere is the 2005 Food Blog Awards. Kate of Accidental Hedonist is accepting nominations in categories such as recipes, writing, photography, theme blog, restaurant reviews, and many others. Nominations are open until December 16, so visit Accidental Hedonist and nominate your favorite blog. It's also great fun just to read the nominations and visit the nominated blogs. I've discovered several great new blogs this way.
