I hate food blogs.

10 May

What does irony taste like, huh?

But it’s true. I really hate food blogs.

I hate the long, drawn-out stories about nibbling on bits of bullshit while walking the streets of some over-worshipped city and reading about some diva wannabe’s childhood dreams of whipped cream for eight paragraphs before you get to the recipe.

There’s a limoncello taco on Pinterst. I want to read what’s in a limoncello taco and how to make it. I don’t want to hear about how you bought corn from some street vendor who told you about special sour creme cows that are massaged with olive oil so the cream is extra buttery so you got some of this sour creme and it was oh so divine you would not believe oh my gosh.

Seriously. That’s how every one of those fucking blogs sounds to me. Like a bad teenage diary about food.

They aren’t all bad. But they certainly aren’t all good.

If I want to read a story, I’ll read a story. If I want a recipe, I want to read a recipe. Not your shitty narrative. Nothing is worse than reading the long-winded musings of a journalism major who decided to not work for a newspaper and decided to blog instead.

I should know. I’m a journalism major who decided not to work for a newspaper. However, I don’t make money from this blog. So I have that going for me.

And I keep these things short, something I learned from my professional, non-journalism writing career.

Anyway, I’m going to go eat a taco now. Adios.
