Wordpress.com is now aggregating food blogger's articles in the new domain at http://foodpress.com .

Looks like lots of recipe posts, and very few restaurant "review" posts so far.

    Do you know when they started this? I had never heard of it until this post but when I looked at it, I discovered I was one of their 'featured bloggers'!

      I think they just went live with it today. There is a small announcement on the dashboard of wordpress.com blogs.

        Thanks, I must have missed that. I think it's a good feature so food lovers can get straight to what we're interested in, amongst the tens of thousands of blogs about fashion, design, current events, etc.

        That's pretty cool. Have you noticed a spike in traffic?

        Once this site gets rolling it's going to my food newsletter editorial life so much easier!

          Here is some more info about this new site: http://www.blogherald.com/2010/11/02/...

          Apparently Wordpress.com has hired someone to harvest Wordpress.com blogs (likely tracking tags) and produce the editorial result that is FoodPress.com.

          Only Wordpress.com blogs are being tracked now.
