To start, a group of investors from Seattle and Amazon have decided to
throw away invest over half a mil in the site. That’s not as much cash as it sounds like; but, it’s still more than I’d like to see handed over to a company with no apparent ongoing revenue stream on the horizon.
Back to that Seattle connection … apparently Foodista has decided to organize a conference in Seattle. Targeted at yours truly, and the like, the International Food Blogger Conference is scheduled to hit the ground running in mid-May. Okay, so there are some impressive sponsors and some great topics; but, I already have plans. Thus, no visits to see my sister. Seriously though – 500k in investment!!!! What’s up with that people?
Nonetheless, the site is worth checking out … so head on over to foodista.com and see what you think for yourself.
