Food Bloggers Connect 2011 and some Links

Blogging is a lonely job although the subscribers and the ability to receive and post comments make it a little more interactive. But to be physically in the same place with other people who blog about food, no matter if some that you've never heard about their blog before, or some that you've been reading for years, this is a one of a kind experience.
I had high expectations on the 2011 edition of the food bloggers conference FBC held in London Aug 12-14 and they were met. The venue was the elegant design hotel Hempel, the people were friendly, the food was fabulous, the sponsors were generous, the presentations were interesting and in the end I was offered a prize!
My new friend Artemis from Wonderfoodland asked me if I would attend the Masterclass with chef Omar Allibhoy instead of her as she lives in Greece. Could I say No?! :) So I am going to the Spanish tapas Masterclass in October and will be blogging about it after that.

I would like to share with you the interesting people and their blogs I met (in no particular order), check them out!

Reading your list of bloggers, it's nice to see that everyone is unique - i.e. blogging about a niche area :-)

It was a good event. The presentations were interesting and meeting other bloggers was really fun.
