The ones with inappropriate posts. Or for people to lazy to make a feed just for mofo posts. I've seen a bunch of them so far.

I have a dumb question. Really dumb, since I apparently did this successfully last year. I have a feed for 2010 MoFo, but not 2011? Where do I find that?

Also, can't inappropriate blogs be cut from the feed?

I don't know how to make a feed just for mofo posts. BUT I don't plan on posting anything except for Mofo, which should alleviate part of the problem.

I'm technologically incompetent, but I'd love to know how.

Well, there was the "last post before vegan mofo" post with the macdonalds and bacon, but at least that one was about food pricing, it's the ones about random shiitake, a.k.a peoples normal random shiitake blogs on the feed, that annoy the fork out of me. Maybe I just need to chillax the fork out.

Yeah, some girl did a big post about steak the day before, when we had already released the bundles...just email us the blog names to veganmofoblog@gmail.com so we can keep an eye on them, and if people are posting other stuff and no MoFo at all, we'll watch them too.

When I look at mine on the reader it's got posts from a long time back. If anybody knows how I can fix that, I'd be happy to. I *thought* I followed directions.

Can you just mark everything as read? You might miss a few people's posts from the earlier today.

When I subscribe to a new blog through google reader, it usually gives me the last ten posts they've made. I don't think there's anything you can do as an individual blog owner. I'm slowly reading through the feed and I plan to stop when I hit posts from yesterday.

I'm also getting peed off with people posting recipes from books without permission, but then I seethe about that most days.

Are there specific guidelines posted somewhere? Saying something about how you should either only do mofo posts or create a seperate feed for them? I notice a lot of people mofoing in their personal blog, meaning the feed also shows up their personal posts. Will they get deleted for this?
Could somebody post directions on creating a separate feed, and if a blog gets put on watch for bad posting, could it be warned in some way instead of deleted silently?
There are a lot of new people participating this year, including people that aren't PPK members. Its more difficult to expect them to know exactly what's expected of them.

You don't get deleted for posting non-MoFo posts. If it bothers people then they can just delete that person from their feed. We only delete people if they are posting non-vegan food or something offensive or if they aren't posting MoFo posts at all. Beyond that it's up to the individual reader to figure out what they want to read about. We aren't the MoFo police.

AlienPMK I'd have thought you knew the mofo rules

Is there etiquette about this? It seems to me that posting a recipe from a cookbook is kind of like posting an excerpt or a single poem from a book -- it's not posting the whole book, it just gives the reader a taste of what's in the book, which in effect promotes the book and encourages people to buy it.

Personally, I get frustrated when people post photos of food without the recipes - I don't really care what the food looks like, I'd rather just have the recipe than just a photo. I'm happy to look at food photos, but without a recipe they are useless to me!

Choirqueer, I guess it's my librarian/copyright queen coming out. Recipe copyright is hazy, but really people should have permission for typing out the whole recipe..

I tend to agree, Efcliz. Here's the recipe etiquette thread from last year's MoFo, viewtopic.php?f=38&t=1455.

I don't, but usually people say so when they do.

I'd say inspiration from a food porn is a nice reason to check out a new-to-you cookbook...

I'm the total opposite! I never bother reading a post with no pictures and would rather just have a picture than a recipe.

I am the same. Where I can forgive a cookbook without pictures I feel like there's no point to food blogging without some photos (hopefully accompanied by an explanation of what it is, how well it turned out, and where I can find the recipe if not on the blog).

Though I don't quite know how to make my own blog very aesthetically appealing, I do know that is what I look for in other blogs. So, pics are of the utmost importance. Recipes are nice, but I'm not scared of doing some leg work and hitting up my library.

I'm with you guys, pictures are more important than recipes on blogs. If I like the look of a picture I can find the recipe in a cookbook I own, buy the new cookbook or borrow it from the library (or find it on the original writers blog). I'm finding myself getting irritated by the amount of people just posting recipes out of cookbooks as they are or just changing one ingredient to make it "their own".

I like both pictures and recipe. Especially for MoFo. I don't really like if it's just one or the other. A recipe without a picture is fine, but it would only grab my attention if I'm really looking for that specific kind of thing. For example, I'm looking for a chili recipe. They all look similar; it's the ingredients that really matter.
On the other hand, if it has a picture but nothing more than just a few words, I'm not likely to acquire the book just for that recipe. Sure that looks good, but how do I make it? Is it super difficult? Does it call for expensive ingredients or equipment I don't want to buy? I'd be pissed if I went through the trouble of tracking down a copy of the book just to find out it's a pain in the asparagus to make. This is only okay if the book isn't out yet.

That said, on my blog I include the recipe and give credit if I can find it online somewhere else pretty easily. I'd bet that 90% of Isa's recipes are easy to find online, but I still own every one of her books and plan on buying the pie book too. Why? Because I was able to try a lot of recipes before I bought the book and they were all fabulous. Plus, it makes it easy for me to figure out what I need from the supermarket when I'm at work and I decide to make a big bowl of cashew ricotta for dinner.
