Josh Brusin was the founder, editor and writer of the political blog Preachin to the Choir which followed the 2004 elections. Focus then shifted to food. When you're depressed you eat.
Chicago Foodies was founded in 2005. It's a site that focuses on the Chicago food scene and national food trends. Interest really caught on with the tremendous resurgence in the "Foodie" trend and celebrity chef phenomenon. Chicago has been cited as one of the best food cities in the U.S. (G.Q. Magazine, 2006). Chicago Foodies has been noted as one of Chicago's top food blogs by the Chicago Tribune Web Edition (March 2008) and Chicago Magazine (February, 2008).
