A common trend that I’ve noticed since I joined the blogosphere is that people love to post pictures of their food and share what they are eating with others. What’s more is that people love to read about and see what others eat!
Whether bloggers photograph and post their food as a food journal for themselves or they do it for reader interest is not always clear. What is apparent, is that blogs that have photos of food seem to do better than those without! I have seen this firsthand right here, and today the NY Times took a look at exactly this phenomenon in the article “First Camera, Then Fork.” And if you’re curious to see what people around the world (and readers of the Times) are eating, take a look at the food photos readers submitted of what they ate today.
What do you think of this trend? Do you like seeing what other people eat?
