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, 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 Oh and my snail mail address is at the bottom too. I love samples and free stuff.
Submitting information to Foodimentary:
If I find anyone sending information to more than one ore two email addresses my service automatically send those addresses to my junk. I receive numerous emails daily and do not mind receiving emails submitted more than one within a couple of weeks apart. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, I say
You want to pay for a tweet on my more than 800k Twitter account @Foodimentary?
I have seldom ever tweeted for a brand, food product, or another party other than myself. If you want to ‘bid’ on a Tweet, Retweet, or Hashtag then email me. Heck, I have influence and never turn down money if it agrees with the fundamentals of what my followers expect. No promises on results. Come on, we can’t predict that kind of thing, but the chance to have 800k+ eyes read your tweet, you do the math… Send me a compelling email with a dollar amount and I will read/consider it. ‘Will Tweet For Food‘ has a certain ring to it.
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 Mainly because either the previous ‘day’s’ food is outdated or irrelevant.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.
