I'm curious how many Chowhounders out there visit Tastespotting.com on a regular basis. Do you submit your photos to Tastespotting too?

    I check it out daily. Lately, it's been overrun by a very few bloggers who are posting there at a rapid pace...but overall I like it for a great snapshot look at food blogs and photography.

          I had posted on Tastespotting. I really liked looking at the site - I thought it was a really neat place - where will I go now?

            Tastespotting was truly unique!

            Altho not anywhere near an ideal replacement...and if you enjoyed the visual dynamic of TS, this is a sad substitute BUT...http://www.foodblogsearch.com/ will get you to interesting food blogs. I entered "egg" into the engine and picked out a dozen blogs I'll read all week.

              Tastespotting.com is gone -- "due to legal complications," according to the site.

                This is a major bummer. I went on that site every day. Does anyone have updates on whether it'll be relaunched, perhaps by another company?

                  Serious Eats has a commentary going on TS.
                  You'll read there that a blog called Recipes2share has offered to start up a version of food blog sharing..

                  Personally, I'd like to give it a week or two to see what happens next. I haven't read an official explanation; only blog fan speculation. I enjoyed the blog myself..read it nearly daily...but will await word from TS folks before bummin too much.

                    Hi HillJ

                    recipes2share is my site, & yes I have offered this food blog sharing as it fits with the site's mission of sharing, I already had an in-site gallery running & I loved Tastespotting. Its early days but I've had some great feedback and some great photo submissions.

                      Good for you Fiona R.
                      There is def. an audience for such a blog.
                      It would be great news if TS returns and recipes2share thrives.

                I agree that Food Gawker has done a great job trying to replace Tastespottting.
