Have a read of this article in the Boston Times about our community of foodbloggers. I feel I know everyone mentioned in the article in person, having spent so long (years for a few blogs) reading, posting/replying to comments and emailing them. Several even helped me with finger food ideas when I had a function to cater a few month before I set up this blog. It's a great little community.
