Every since we created and started maintaining the blogroll of all Vancouver Area food blogs, we have at our disposal quite a database of the blogs. Believe it or not, there is a total of 121 blogs that writes about restaurants.
So with the blogroll along with the use of a couple of tools, we are able to quickly pull data out from the feeds of the blogs and put together some interesting stats of the state of food blogs in vancouver
I don’t think it is any surprise that not every blog is active but there are five which are worthy to be mentioned for their sheer hard working in hammering out at least one post a day.
Between 84 blogs that has at least one post during January 2011, there is a staggering 803 posts.
That works out to be an average of about … GOSH … 26 posts a day. LOL!
OK, time to call out the MOST PROLIFIC Vancouver Food Blog (restaurants only) for January 2011 because these bloggers deserved to be called out for their sheer hardwork to keep all of us informed and entertained …
is written by Design Girl. This is undoubtedly the most prolific blogger for the month of January 2011 … by a wide-wide margin. She had written a total of 45 posts easily surpassing the next biggest blog. That is not what is surprising. The jaw-dropper is that she churned out a total of 56 posts — almost twice a day! You see, we only counted restaurant posts for this leaderboard.
Food For Buddha
is written by Buddha Girl and Buddha Boy. For those of you who had the privilege to meet Buddha Girl, you will find her with a bubbly personality which is infectious. So you won’t be surprised to see how many exclamation marks in the posts … like this!!!!!! LOL! BB and BG is definitely the most autorative voice when it comes to Taiwanese cuisine. They had posted 37 posts in January which is A LOT!!!! Go check out their site. They had just started making videos too.
If ever any of the Vancouver bloggers who will one day end up with a food show on TV, it will be Mijune of Follow Me Foodie
. She is all glamour and most publicly visible blogger. And she writes the most longest blog of all. Her posts are very detailed. She had just launched a professionally produced vlog
on her blog which everyone should take a look at. What I can’t understand is how she stay so slim because she does have some serious binge eating in some of her posts. LOL!
Everyone knows Sherman
. Everyone loves Sherman for his fun, tongue in cheek commentaries. Sherman is the steadiest blogger … contantly churning out one blog post a day. Without fail and always on the dot at midnight everyday. Also an active hockey goalie, he has abundance of energy. I don’t know how he juggles work, blog, hockey, being a dad and most important eating at the same time. Does he have time to sleep? :-) Sherman is a pioneer of the Vancouver blog scene.
James and Amy is the people behind the Vancouver Street Eats
. They burst into the blogosphere when Vancouver started the street food program last year. Dedicated to all restaurants on wheels, this site had carve out a niche of their own. With the burgeoning street food program, I can see that this site will grow from strength to strength over the years.
The five blogs above belong to the 30-posts club for January 2011. I think they all deserve recognition for all the dedicated and hard work knowing that they are not doing this for money but are driven by pure passion for food.
Hehehe … please don’t be surprised. Chowtimes is #13 on the most number of posts with just a mere 19 posts (restaurant only) in January. You see, I keep telling you all that we don’t eat out as much as you think we do. It just feel like chowtimes has a lot of posts. We don’t. :-)
Anyway, I hope you take sometime going into each of the top blogs above and tell them how much their work is appreciated. It’s the least we can do. I know they will like that.
