Just got back from seeing Julie & Julia at the movies. It was great - great story, great acting, funny and even mr yardage liked it!
As you would probably know, Julie is a blogger who blogs about cooking all of the recipes in Julia Child's book Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I found the bits of the movie about blogging really interesting and thought provoking ... are we all a part of a phenomenon that we will look back on in future years? Will we look back with pride? I think yes, and yes. It will eventually evolve, as all things do, but in essence people have been communicating and sharing with like-minded souls for ages using whatever technology or means are available at the time. We are lucky enough to have the internet and blogging!
As soon as I got home, I rushed to find Julie Powell's blog - the original one is here - the last entry is the day that Julia Child passed away (2004). Julie started another blog here. It's a good read, but you know what struck me straight away - the simplicity of the blog - just words - nothing else.
Anyway - that's my rambling for tonight! Go and see the movie if you can - it's really good.
P.S. The movie website also has some great foodie blogs on it - check them out here.
