After Tastespotting and breast cancer campaign

This past weekend marked the end of Tastespotting, which many of us have come to love for our daily dose of droolicious photography and innovative recipes from the many food blogs it featured. After getting over the shock of seeing nothing but a note on the website, some determined food bloggers have set up alternative sites that would continue the good work of Tastespotting. Impressive work given that it's only been days.

Food Gawker - Set up as a clone with almost identical layout. The submission procedures and graphical interface is still being tweaked but it all looks very promising

Recipes 2 Share - Housed within a new Gallery section of an original site. It aims for a creative look rather than a clone of Tastespotting.

Food Porn Daily - Featuring much larger pictures and more editorial input.

I personally prefer Food Gawker at this point but it will be interesting to see how these sites develop over the next few weeks and months. In any case, these options should help fill the void left by Tastespotting for those who love food and good photography.

The Breast Cancer Site

Little Corner of Mine brought to my attention a breast cancer campaign by The Breast Cancer Site, which is to get as many clicks as possible by end of June to reach their target of 8 million clicks, in order for their sponsors to donate an additional $10,000 for free mammograms. Each click helps fund free mammograms for women in need — low-income, inner-city and minority women whose awareness of breast cancer and opportunity for help is often limited. All you have to do is click on the pink button on the site. Every click counts toward the goal of early detection, which allows for the best possible treatment options. You can also help by spreading word about this campaign and linking to The Breast Cancer Site.
