Omaha Food Bloggers

posted by snekse
When I first started this blog back in 2005, the foodie scene in Omaha was pretty underground. Slowly we've seen some encouraging changes. More locals joining the social sites like Foodbuzz, eGullet and Chowhound. More reviews going up on sites like yelp and urbanspoon. The Omaha World-Herald finally got a clue and gave food it's own subsection on their website. Food and Spirits magazine brought a dedicated local food publication to the area. And most importantly, more Omaha food bloggers have begun sharing their own thoughts and experiences.

With that, let me introduce you to our fellow Omaha Food Bloggers and announce the creation of the Omaha Food Bloggers Blog Roll. Blogs marked with a ** were added after our initial announcement.

Meet The Omaha Food Bloggers

The 2 Foodies

Kenton and Melissa make some great food, and better yet, take some amazing pictures of said food. The many recipes on their site cover both cooking and baking and they're not afraid to share their experiments.

Eating Outside of the Box

http://eatingoutsideofthebox.com/
A couple from Nebraska doing their best to minimize their reliance on processed foods (i.e., they strive to eat primarily “outside of the box”). They’ve created this blog as a way of giving people an “insider’s view” of what it’s like to live a life quite unlike the average American. While many folks are out at the bars or movies on the weekends, they are likely visiting a local farm or making homemade mayonnaise!!!

Meet the Omaha Food Bloggers Blog Roll

So here's the thing - the hard part about writing a blog is keeping it going. Life often gets in the way and the writing muse doesn't always want to dance with you. Before long it's been 6 weeks since your last post and readers have forgotten about you. And from a readers standpoint, it's not always practical to check each of the blogs above on a regular basis. That's where the Omaha Food Bloggers Blog Roll comes in. The blog roll is a shared Atom/RSS feed that can be subscribed to so you'll have a constant stream of new content delivered to your feedreader, email or whatever you use. We hope other good things will also come of this. Who knows, maybe we'll be able to re-boot the Foodies of Omaha Discussion Board and start meeting regularly. If we do, you'll already be in the know because you clicked one of the links below.
