UtHC Coast to Coast

A cool thing happened the other week:

We're a relatively low-profile blog and that is fine by us, but every once in a while we'll pop up on someone's radar and it's always entertaining to see what transpires after that and where our name ends up.

This happened recently when a Top 10 list I had posted a while back happened to land a spot in another Top 10 list over at the popular food blog, Endless Simmer. Demonstrating a stroke of pure genius, Brendan Spiegel (BS) compiled a Top 10 Top 10 Food Lists, a shout out to the "funniest food stories we've seen in list format".

Topping the hilarious, exhaustive and often insightful (I need to see Tampopo like now) list, was my Top 10 Things to Expect When Dining With a Food Blogger. Sweet!

That was just the beginning of the fun.

A few hours later, the New York-based food website, Serious Eats came calling. As this site has been praised by some as the "next generation of food media" and named by Time Magazine as one of the 50 Best Websites, I about hit the roof when they called my list 'inspired'.
Equally entertaining was a commenter who stated "I refuse to eat with food bloggers or vegan/vegetarians."! Hilarious.

I would have been content if the link love had ended there, but the next day we traveled to the opposite coast and popped up on Eater LA, followed in quick succession by a spot on UrbanDiner, for some Canadian love.

Apparently, it doesn't matter which country you find yourself in, you might want to think twice before dining with a food blogger, as was proven by well-known Korean Food Journal ZenKimchi who stated that my list hit close to home.

We could talk about blurbs on News Now Network or SpliceToday, or all the food blogs that joined in the fun (at their own expense) but I think you get the drift...Wait, what was the drift? I've already forgotten.

How about this: Internet 'fame' lasts about 15 seconds, so grab a glass of wine and enjoy it!

.. and we're back off the radar. Cheers!

Did that header photo make you hungry? It's a Warm Lobster Salad with Asparagus, Fiddleheads and Poached Rhubarb.

That's so great... it's always so much fun to see what our food blogs bring us. And sometimes it's the most surprising of posts too! Loved that post.

Maria said...

Congrats! I love your blog!

Hilary said...

I doubt you're entirely off the radar. Yours is a great blog and this kind of thing tends to snowball a little bit. Congrats and enjoy your success, Aimee!

Sue said...

You deserve all the attention that come to you as a result of that post. It was SO funny and SO true. I really loved it and Brendan's as well.

Congratulations! That is all awesome and well deserved. It was a genius list!

Ingrid said...

LOL, that was a good (& funny)one! Congrats on your 15 minutes of fame though I'm pretty certain you'll have several more of those "15 minutes" which will add up to a lifetime of successes!

Aimée said...

Hi Michelle- I figured you would!

Hi Lori- Too true. I was floored!

Hi Maria- Thanks. Right back at ya!

Hi Hilary- Hm, you might be right about that..

Hi Sue- Aww, thanks! At least we can laugh at ourselves, right?

Hi Amanda- Hi! (as I snort my coffee all over the keyboard) That's a good one. Hugs back!

You're doing a great job here, so people are bound to notice, talk about it, and feature you on their favourite lists!
I don't think you're ever off the radar ;)

Launi said...

The list made me laugh my head off--because I've done so many of those things. Before my kids eat ANYTHING they holler, "Did you get a picture of this yet?"

Emily said...

That was a great post. One of my favorites of yours. Such a good idea. You're brilliant. Congrats in all of your success!

I love your posts and enjoy your "fame":)

Cheryl Arkison said...

I love it. I remember that post.
The kids are so used to it - constantly holding out their food for me to photograph. I could do without the in-laws teasing me about a macro obsession.
Congrats on all the love.
