I examined three pizza-related blogs: Legends of Pizza, Pizza Rules!, and Slice Harvester. Legends of Pizza’s “How the Internet Changed Pizza History” chronicles how the Internet has changed pizza to a once highly regionalized food (NYC, New Haven, Chicago) to a staple food choice easily accessible from anywhere in the world.
Pizza Rules! is a pizza blog with a personal edge about all things pizza and the author averages about 3 slices of pizza a day. Pizza Rules! also utilizes a more dynamic layout than Legends of Pizza
Slice Harvester is a blog that also prints a zine publication. Slice Harvester utilizes a multiple platforms to reach its audience and mostly reviews pizza shops in the NYC area. In addition to publishing a pizza zine, he has a Twitter and a Facebook, which allows for communication between himself and his audience.
The Pizza Blogosphere seems to me pretty uninhabited and the blogs that do exist aren’t updated often and go through long periods of inactivity. I haven’t found a pizza + media blog yet, but I am excited to contribute to the discussion.
