Madison’s most prolific food bloggers

Today’s 77 Square—the weekly entertainment guide from the Wisconsin State Journal—features an in-depth piece from Lindsay Christians on “Madison’s most prolific food bloggers.” It nicely captures the breadth of the Madison blogging scene from passionate cooks to dining-out diehards to advocates for sustainable eating, and includes everyone from amateur writers to folks who’ve turned their blogging into a full-time paid gig.

Check out the full article for links to lots of great blogs including, I’m delighted to say, The Conscientious Omnivore:

For a city of a few hundred thousand, the local food blogging scene is impressively active and varied.

There are restaurant review blogs, like Eat Drink Madison and Isthmus critic Kyle Nabilcy’s Irony or Mayo. There are blogs devoted to local fish fries, food carts and beer.

There are blogs that hinge on sustainability and food advocacy, like The Conscientious Omnivore and All Hail Honeybees. Some take a farmers’ market focus, like Driftless Appetite, or aim at those with dietary restrictions, like Farmers Market Vegan and the (mostly) dairy-free Badger Girl Learns to Cook.

For more, join some of the mentioned bloggers at a food-writing panel presentation entitled “Dishin’ with Madison Foodies” at the Sequoya Branch of the Madison Public Library on Thursday, September 27, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. I’ll be in the audience, so I hope to see you there!
