Blogger Mentoring

As I was adding a bunch of new blog listings to the site, I realized that many of them weren't only new to the site - they're just plain new! Since blogging is evolving into such a multi-faceted hobby/job/something-in-between with so many different things to learn, I thought it might be helpful to match up veteran bloggers with newbie bloggers as mentor/mentee pen-pals of sorts.

Are you interested in participating in the Boston Food Bloggers Mentoring Program? Here's how:

(1) Fill out this form to tell me whether you'd like to mentor or be mentored (and some other related information).
(2) If you haven't already filled out the general sign-up form for - the same one that appears on the "Add Yourself" page - please do so now. It'll help me categorize your blog and better know your interests and writing areas.

Once enough people have signed up, I'll start pairing people off based on shared interests and goals, I'll introduce each pair by email, and then you're on your own! Chat via email, meet up for coffee, whatever you'd like! (Disclaimer: This is not meant to be a dating service or anything like that, so if that's what you have in mind, please look elsewhere. This is purely to match up veteran bloggers and newer bloggers in mentoring relationships.)
