I had lunch on Monday with Bon Appétit editor-in-chief Barbara Fairchild, here in LA (yes, still). I was so cheered that she was well aware of the thriving food blog niche - which, by the way, should have a lot more food companies engaging it and taking part in the conversations going on there. Indeed, Julie/Julia Project blogger Julie Powell won a James Beard Foundation Award for an article she was commissioned to write for Bon Appétit last year.
As we sat eating lunch, who should walk in but Hollwood Reporter editor Anne Thompson, who attended our LA blog party a couple of weeks ago, and who met with Adriana in January for a blogging bootcamp. It’s a small world, online and offline - especially when you blog.
