December 7 – Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?
There’s the digital communities. The likes of Foursquare, Twitter, and Foodspotting.
But in the year of 2010, it was the community of food. I had partially discovered it in 2009 when my fascination in making food from Thailand and street food started. But 2010 was when it really started.
It was partly my joining of Foodspotting and the Big Eat 100 of San Francisco.
My constant attendance at the SF Food Wars.
And my creative creations from using leftover Christmas cookies….
…to creepy zombie creations.
And of course, street food.
In creating all of this, I met food bloggers. I got to know some of the street food people. It was so brand new and intimidating. But I was a eater and I was granted permission to indulge.
As for community, now that I have glimpsed from the outside, I wanted to get a chance to glimpse it from the inside looking in. Now I want to be a part of it.
