Kansas City food lovers are all over the Internet. I don’t really know how to compare our online food scene to other cities without a prohibitive amount of investigation, but I do find it very active and engaging.
Over at my personal blog I have a list of 40-50 restaurant, cooking and beverage blogs, not to mention contributions by local media outlets like the Pitch and the Star. Bloggers have different levels of engagement with the medium, but it is fair to say that starting a food blog virtually guarantees readers because of the built-in community.
I don’t keep up with every blog in my Google Reader on a daily basis, but I check every one I can as often as I can. I am going to shout-out a few sites every so often just to provide a little virtual backslap to those who are doing a great job.
First up is Kansas Travel. This is actually not a blog per se but a static website. If you can get past that fact, this guy generates some very good content with restaurants being added constantly. While he ostensibly visits places all over the state, he often winds up in Johnson, Douglas and Wyandotte counties. The reviews feature excellent photos as well.
Take a gander at the site, I’ll wager he has stopped by a place or two that you have never heard of. He also has a Twitter feed.
