I'm seriously contemplating starting a food blog, very likely group one. It would be nowhere near as good as some of my favorites (e.g., the hands-down unbeatable EatingAsia, the very useful NYCNosh, the stream-of-consciousness explosion of personality at The Girl Who Ate Everything). But it might still cover some great little-known restaurants, post a few excellent recipes. I have a few friends in "real life" with whom I might do this. But I wonder if it would be a good idea to get film bloggers, many of whom I know are at least part-chowhounds, to have a voice at this blog. I mean, I haven't really discussed this part with my friends, but would there be any interest in having a "film blogger" (or "arts & culture blogger") contingent at a group food blog? (Or, less regularly, the occasional guest blog entries?) How many readers here are big fans of food & drink, and how many among that group would be interested in a cinephile's pre- or post-screening Vietnamese as much as the screening itself?
