Would you be so kind as to "like" my facebook page?

Please excuse the lack of photos in some of my older posts as I am trying to slowly go back through and add the photos that were accidentally deleted

Dear Foodgawker.....

Dear Foodgawker,

Every rejection email I get from you just kills my pride a little more. So could you please lower your standards for food photo submissions? I, and I'm sure I speak for all of your other rejectees, would really appreciate it. Thanks, mmmmk?

Until your next rejection letter graces my inbox...

P.S.  Add Tastespotting to that list.

Peace, and bacon grease!

Ok good! lol thanks for making me feel better :)

Dorothy said...

OMG I totally agree. My most recent decline said "photo/food composition". Um, how is that feedback? Argh!

Caitlin said...

Same here! I feel a little better to be in great company with my rejections though :-)

Leah @ Beyer Beware said...

Just keep on trying. Or start your own site with foodgawker reject photos. There seems to be enough of us!

Jess @ Sugar High said...

I feel ya! All I have to say is as long as someone looks at your picture and thinks to theirself 'I want to eat that, NOW!!', then your pictures are fine. And I think that all the time with your photos.

FYI For everyone- There IS a site that happily accepts photos that the others are so easy to reject. TasteStopping.com


Check it out!
