You know how they say an average person swallows about 8 spiders per year? Well I think I ate a spider last night.

Favorite Moment: Sitting on top of Hunt’s Mesa and looking down on Monument Valley at sunset, I am not very religious, but I felt the presence of something in that beautiful place.
Favorite Conference: I actually didn’t get to go to many conference this year due to work conflicts (I had to cancel both BlogHer and BlogHer Food) but I did go to one great social media conference in San Diego called Social Fresh West.
Favorite Viral Video: I don’t watch a lot of online videos, but I loved the Obama Anger Translator videos from Key & Peele!

Are you a food photo fanatic? If so, you’ve got to check out @sonyayu. Sonya is a full time food photographer in San Francisco. She serves up bird’s eye photos of gorgeously cluttered restaurant tables around the country.
Order colorful food and wait for the entire meal to be served before shooting.
Stand up on your (stable) chair to capture the grub from above.
Get the light right! Always sit by the window, avoid overhead spotlights, and never, ever use a flash - it’s food porn murder.
