Comment on How to Start a Food Blog by Donna Lewis.

This is an amazingly informative post. I found it through google, searching for an answer about featuring other blogger’s recipes, but I am still not sure of something. Say, I want to feature My Favorite 10 Zucchini Recipes (or something similar)….showing a picture (from the blogger’s post), a description and why I like it, and a link back to that other blogger’s post. Do I contact that blogger and ask permission – especially since I would be using their picture? What is the blogger etiquette on something like this? I see it done all the time, but I can’t really find out how to go about doing it in the right way 🙂 That being said, I loved your post and thank you for sharing such a well-organized summary of what you have learned as a blogger!

Malcolm Bedell is co-author of the critically acclaimed "Eating in Maine: At Home, On the Town, and On the Road," as well as the junk food blog "Spork & Barrel," and "Brocavore," a blog about food trucks and street food culture. His contributions include Serious Eats, Down East, Eat Rockland, L.A. Weekly, The Guardian, and The Huffington Post and his food truck, "'Wich, Please," was named "Hottest Restaurant in Maine" for 2015 by Eater. Finally, he finds it very silly to be trying to write this in the third person.
