Jeez, I go to Santa Barbara for two days and I miss all the big news at Variety as well as the L.A. Weekly's new food blog Squid Ink finally launching. It also marks the return of "Ask Mr. Gold" where readers can ask questions directly of the Pulitzer prize-winning writer.
"How 2006," someone Twittered about Squid Ink. That seems a little harsh, especially since contributors Jessica Ritz and Margy Rochlin, and of course Jonathan Gold, are respected and knowledgeable members of the food writing community in L.A. I hate to think that Twittering is killing blogging, but it does seem to have wounded it a bit. I'm always happy to have another voice out there, so all I'll say for now is that I don't find the Weekly's standard blog template very appealing. Have you checked out Squid Ink? Do you think blogs are over and Twitter won?
