Panel: So I Started a Food Blog

Presenter: Molly Wizenberg of Orangette 
Moderator: Emily Farris of Casserole Crazy

Orangette always makes me smile. Orangette was the first food blog I started following years ago. This Monday, I had the opportunity to see her speak at SXSWi.

Molly is not only a blogger, but also a freelance food writer, author of A Homemade Life, and owner of Delancey restaurant in Seattle. The lessons from Molly's talk contrasted with TECHmunch, a food blogger conference which I also attended for work and life. More on TECHmunch in a later post...

Molly focused on why we blog and the story behind the food. I hope my notes help you understand the feel of her talk.

Just in case you're wondering, here's my favorite recipe from Orangette's blog: Chickpea Salad with and Lemon Parmesan. It's super simple, just make sure you buy the best ingredients.
