That's right! Foodbuzz Project Food Blog 2010 has officially opened its doors for voting on Challenge #1!
Wait, what? What is this so-called Project Food Blog?
"Project Food Blog is the first-ever interactive competition where thousands of Foodbuzz Featured Publishers are competing in a series of culinary blogging challenges for the chance to advance and a shot at the ultimate prize: $10,000 and a special feature on Foodbuzz.com for one year."
What was the challenge?
"For the very first Project Food Blog Challenge, we're asking you to create a blog post that defines you as a food blogger and makes it clear why you think you have what it takes to be the next food blog star. Consider what makes your blog unique and sets you apart from other food blog brands: is it your foolproof recipes, your mouthwatering photos, or your perspective on family meals? Write a post that comes from the heart and is true to you and your blog."
Think I have what it takes? Check out my entry post for Challenge #1 here.
How do all these shenanigans work? (i.e) How do I vote?
50% of the total score is awarded by three judges:
Dana Cowin Editor-in-Chief of FOOD & WINE Magazine
Nancy Silverton Founder La Brea Bakery, Co-owner Mozza
Pim Techamuanvivit Author of ChezPim.com and The Foodie Handbook
50% of the total score is from votes by Foodbuzz Featured Publishers
I'm not either of those, can I still vote?
Absolutely! Each round there is 1 "Reader's Choice" winner that automatically advances. This is where everybody else comes in! The Reader's Choice is chosen by all non-Featured Publisher members of Foodbuzz. You don't need a blog or anything like that to join. All you need to do is make an account (or sign-in if you already have one) and then vote! First round you have 400 votes (number of contestants moving on).
To sign up for an account (they don't spam, and you can opt out of any and all emails) all you have to do is go to Foodbuzz.com and click on the "Join Foodbuzz" link all the way in the top right hand corner. Once you have an account, you can then go into "Project Food Blog" in the top menu bar, find me, and vote!
Or, click on the orange "Vote For Me" button below or in the Project Food Blog picture in the sidebar.
Or, just click here to go straight to my entry page.
But hurry hurry! Voting ends September 23 (Thursday)!
Thanks so much for taking the time to vote for me! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!
