A little while ago I exposed the virtues of not blogging about food. Well, in signature fashion I’ve done as I do, not as I say and am now, in fact, working (to some extent) as a food blogger. I am, as of yesterday, one of four interns for Adam Roberts over at The Amateur Gourmet. Prestigious? You bet!
What does it mean? Well, time will tell. For the immediate I’m helping out on the site (I designed the fresh to death intro graphic for the four of us) and doing some write-ups. My first two assignments are under way. There’s more in the future–mainly attending dining events in NYC that Adam cannot make and writing them up after.
Why would I want to be an intern? Why wouldn’t I? It’s a chance to validate the already inordinate amount of time I spend thinking, writing, and talking about food and to do so on a platform that puts my writing in front of a lot more eyes than a blog I started on my own. Plus, I can’t imagine that knowing Adam will be a bad thing.
So check out the introductory post and skim the site if you aren’t already a fan. In the interest of self promotion I’ll probably post here whenever I have posted there.
