The Next Food Blog Star Challenge

I am going to be completely honest with you -- my fingers are shaking as I type this. Why? Foodbuzz is hosting a competition called "Project Food Blog", a 12-week competition between thousands of featured publisher food bloggers to win the title the next food blog star. The next food blog star will win $10,000 and a special feature on Foodbuzz.com for one year!

Check out my contestant profile here.

This competition is a huge undertaking for me. I am pretty much considered a newbie in the foodie world because I have no professional experience and I have been cooking for less than 5 years. I do, however, have a strong passion for cooking and I believe that puts me on the same playing level as anyone else in the competition.

For the first challenge, we are given the chance to tell the world what defines us as food bloggers and why we should be the next food blog star. No one wins or loses this first challenge; it just sets the stage for the remaining challenges.

You can help! In the near future, I will have an icon on my blog for you to vote for me. There are judges for the competition as iterated below but there will be one readers' choice winner per round (except the final round). The readers' choice (blogger with the most votes from the public) will automatically advance to the next round.

The competition is judged by Dana Cowin, Editor-in-Chief of FOOD & WINE Magazine; Nancy Silverton, Founder La Brea Bakery, Co-owner Mozza; and Pim Techamuanvivit, Author of ChezPim.com and The Foodie Handbook.
