A few weeks ago a bunch of us blogger people were talking on Twitter and somehow it came up that we had just about all considered starting a food blog at some point.
The problem was that we of course already have our hands full as bloggers, plus we need time to play the games that we write about! The general consensus was that none of us had the time or energy to devote to a second blog, even if food and drink and cooking was a legitimate additional hobby.
And so an idea was born.
Introducing 8bit Kitchen, the new collaborative food, drink, and cooking blog! I solicited people in the original Twitter conversation that inspired this ideaplus other MMO bloggers here and on the social medias to join up and write.
Right now there are posts up by myself, and Murf and Jeromai and gamerlady, and author invites out to a bunch more folks. The type of content is broad: photos of dinner, recipes, reviews, funny essays, tutorials, posts about our culinary history and inspirations, basically whatever people want to post on the topic. And thanks to it being a collaborative blog, we can all just post when we want and not sweat it when we don’t.
(“But Liore,” I hear you saying. “Isn’t it a little crazy to launch a new blog of any kind during Blaugust when many bloggers are already stretched thin?” And I will reply, “Umm.. so.. umm. NEXT QUESTION.”)
So check it out! And subscribe to us on WordPress or Twitter to stay up on posts! And if you want to contribute, let me know. All MMO bloggers are welcome.
