I will try my best to get back with you, no promises
~ John-Bryan Hopkins
I am considered by many to be one of the original providers of information in social media related to food. Early 2006 my quest began to try and supply shot-form, readable and most importantly sharable content. I never wanted to write long paragraphs about food facts or information. My belief is that quick, accurate, food information has a place in social media. In a world where food blogging is communicated through personal experiences, often ego driven or recipes laden prose, I focused strictly on a niche in the marketplace. A nifty name helps too. I truly believe in my “Just the facts Ma’am” approach to blogging. I am ever so humbled that millions visit my site and share my tweets.
Submitting information to Foodimentary:
Think you have a ‘Food Holiday’ that needs to be officially added to the calendar or recognized? This submit it here. No promises. New holidays show up almost every month. Feel free to throw your idea in the hat. The better the submission the better the chances. Most new days are placed on dates that have out of date or no longer relevant foods. So take a look at the calendar or just you can simply submit a food, cuisine, etc.
If I find anyone sending information to more than one or two email addresses my service automatically sends those addresses to my junk. I receive numerous emails daily and do not mind receiving emails submitted more than once. As long as is a couple of weeks apart. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, I say. I was once in your shoes and understand wanting to get attention or approval of any kind.
Blogging Requests or Reviews from the Editor:
My job is rather labor intensive and I can not promise that your information or book will be review. If I find something that is very interesting I will forward the information to people who are book buyers and others who are full-time book reviewers. They will either contact you or your publish and ask for a copy of the book for review. Like I said before, no promises.
Requesting further information from Foodimentary:
It is true that many food holidays over the years I have created or replaced them myself. Mainly because either the previous ‘day’s’ food is outdated or irrelevant. There is not an official council for food holidays My purpose is to procure the best food holiday for particular days, celebrating foods in season and relevant. Soon I will be creating an”obscure, retired and duplicate food holidays list” Case in point there are 4 supposed brownie days. I feel it my duty to help calm the confusion, no one else is doing it, why not me?
I seldom make seldom do appearances or travel for food related events. This not to say I would not consider it though. I have in the past been asked to provide interviews, television appearances, Skype conversations , or blurbs for food related cookbooks, etc.
If none of the above criteria fit, please feel free to use this email address.
