Introducing FoodPress

Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”

Those wise words are from celebrity chef Julia Child, who was never shy about following her passions in life.

FoodPress

Serving up the hottest dishes on WordPress.com

Child was passionate about many things, but especially food — and she shares that in common with WordPress.com bloggers, who publish thousands of mouth-watering recipes and food stories every day.

For that reason, we couldn’t resist building a special new site dedicated to showing off the amazing breadth of food-related posts on WordPress.com. Today we’re thrilled to announce FoodPress, the go-to destination for the hottest dishes from WordPress.com bloggers. To help us run the site, we’ve partnered with publishing company Federated Media. Each day, FoodPress features snippets of posts, which is designed to get new people to discover and then click through to a blog.

How to Get Featured?

If you’re wondering how posts are selected for the site, it’s easy: They’re all hand-picked by FoodPress editor Jane Maynard. She finds most of the posts by scouring food-related tag pages like food, recipes, baking, cocktails, and more — so if you’re a food blogger, be sure to use tags on your posts.

We hope you enjoy FoodPress as much as we do. But be forewarned: Viewing the site is known to cause hunger pangs!

    Foodpress should add glutenfree to their “Featured Tags”. Perhaps also other allergies like lactose etc.

    I smell (no pun intended) other vertical interest areas represented on WordPress.com eventually getting the same type of treatment as Food-related blogs. Say, tech-related or social media-related blogs (ahem… hint, hint) getting their own “xxxxxxxPress” treatment. At least I’m hoping!

    That being said, FoodPress is a great design, and wonderful idea. Anything to showcase the blogs and content… Kudos.

    Hey guys,

    Food press is a great idea! Why not have a similar concept with Creative Press? Basically, search engines are very poor in identifying creative stuff (automated search bots searching for keywords and title tags – not my idea of judging creativity!). That’s where WordPress has a great resource – its community of bloggers! Why not hand pick some of the most creative posts from around the WP community and introduce them in various categories?. BTW I appreciate that you got a ‘Vegetarian’ category in FP – I am a great proponent of Vegan food, and happy belated Vegan day for all of you!!

    May I suggest the option to add Icons for vegetarian/vegan meals? It would be nice to be able to see on the first gaze wether a recipe contains meat or other animal products, without having to check the list of contents or the tags of each post.

    This is a great idea.
    As it is backed by a publishing company, Federated Media, will selected food blogs be paid for their unique content? What are the copyright provisions, ie will those who wrote the blog own copyright? It’s great to be published, but generally writers get financial recompense and copyright.
    Can you clarify this, it would be much appreciated.
