Farewell Tastespotting :o(

As of today, one of my favorite food sites has been shut down, kaput, no more, nada, bye-bye. It must be a cruel Friday the 13th Prank, yeah, that's it.

Anyway, for those of you that are fellow TS addicts, I know you feel my pain. For those of you who never surfed it's tasty pages, I pity you. TS was a great place to promote your blog, find ALL kinds of recipe inspirations, see what fellow food bloggers are up to, and let's face it, quench that food porn addiction.

The rumor on the net is that the legal issues had to do with bloggers that posted pictures from other sites on TS and their own blogs, presenting them as if they were the originators of the work. That's all I have been able to come up with. I only posted my own work, and I believe that most others did as well. You know what they say, "only takes 1 bad apple", blah, blah, blah.

If anyone out there knows of a good alternative to Tastespotting, or has the guts to start a site of their own, let me know!

As for now, Tastespotting.com, R.I.P..........
