Foodbuzz.com Brings Food Blogs to the Forefront

What makes Foodbuzz interesting is the site is essentially a social network for food bloggers and their readers. Each day, Foodbuzz ranks its top articles, recipes, and blog posts for readers to share and comment on. Similar to sites like Digg, Foodbuzz users can rate posts and "buzz" them, shooting their links to the top of the pile. Over 2,800 blogs currently publish to the site, making it a fairly robust way for people to sort and fine food information from around the globe. Today's top post about making homemade butter to pair with salt and radishes is a good example of a far reaching (and emotionally resonating) food blog.
The festival starts Friday with a San Fran street food showcase and costs a cool $350 to attend for bloggers (it's free for featured Foodbuzz publishers).
