A while back I spent a day looking over Baltimore food blogs and realized that I was spending too much time with books, rather than online.
I didn't know how to get started online and I didn't want to have to sift through too much. After a little time today though, I've found there seems to be enough blogosphere awards to make the search easy. To start I can look at Saveur, Food Buzz and Delish. I'll have to search out some more later.
For starters, Saveur this year held their 1st Annual Best Food Blog Awards and here are the winners:
