Yesterday, was an exciting day for a handful of New Jersey Food Bloggers and Jersey Bites was lucky enough to be one of them. We were featured in an article by Tammy La Gorce called A Vibrant Culture of Food Blogging.  You can read the online version here.  Our little blog is growing up <snif, snif>.

The Times sent a photographer out to follow me last Sunday while I conducted a restaurant review.  Talk about intimidating.  Not only did I have someone taking pictures of me taking pictures of food but he also captured quite a few shots of me with my mouth full. Yikes.  I am very grateful none of those made it into the paper.

I want to welcome all the new readers we picked up through our day in the spotlight and hope you enjoy the information we share here.  Jersey Bites is an eclectic place where we dish about all things food, restaurants, recipes, events, hunger awareness and the list goes on. 

We are very excited to be welcoming some really talented writers to the Jersey Bites family.  Stay tuned for our new Jersey Bites local blogs in Monmouth County, Hunterdon and Mercer Counties and in Hudson County.  We hope to roll out Jersey Bites hyper-local blogs in every county by the end of 2010.

If you have tips on great restaurants or food events in your area, send them to JerseyBites (at) gmail (dot) com.  It is going to be an exciting year for little ol’ Jersey Bites and we hope you stick around to share in the fun.

If you are a Facebook fanatic, hop on over to our Jersey Bites Facebook page and join the party.  If Twitter is your social media hang out of choice, we’ve got quite a big following @JerseyBites.
