More on the Death of Food Blogs

I guess a fairly obvious answer to the death of food blogs is the rise of things like Yelp and reviews on Google and Google Maps.

The good thing, especially with Yelp, is that you can see potentially lots of reviews, all at once. The bad thing is that those apps make everyone a food critic, and people are idiots.

For instance, I searched for "restaurants" on Google Maps. The app gave me a bunch of local restaurants with ratings from people. A certain Chinese restaurant was rated 4.9 out of 5.0 stars. I'm like WTF? Those reviewers are idiots. That place is average at best. And if 2.5 out of 5.0 means average, it deserves a 2.5.

OMG Why?

OMG who still comes to this thing?  It makes me almost want to start blogging again. Just because I feel bad for the people coming here and seeing a vast wasteland.

2 new posts in one day! Unprecedented!

Where's Everybody Been?

So how's everyone's summer? Haha omg who even looks at this thing???

But seriously ... Have recently been checking out food blogs that were once popular, like in 2005. I see many have folded. But not me! I'm still around!!! This post is proof!

I'm old enough to remember when people thought they could actually make a living writing about food or wine on stupid blogs, like a stupid blog such as this.

Not that I ever thought I could. And never intended to.

The reality? No one cares about food blogs. They sure went away fast huh? And I'm sure whoever currently gets paid to write posts about food makes squat.

Anyway, I'm still around (i.e. I exist on this earthly plane). Maybe more posts to come. You never know.
