Here’s a little peek into some backstage shenanigans:
In doing some press for the Blog Awards, a reporter asked me the following question:
“How much influence has Julie Powell had on Food Blogging?”
“Very Little. Clotilde over at Chocolate and Zucchini has had far more influence on Food Blogging than Julie”.
I calls them likes I sees them.
It may be petty and unprofessional for me to post this tidbit here, but as much as I respect the choices Ms. Powell has made in her life (whether I agree with them or not is inconsequential), at no point will I state on the record that her “influence” upon Food Blogging is anything more than marginal. There’s simply way too much that has happened in the community since Julie/Julia closed up shop in 2003.
