P.S. If we don't choose you, you can still feature your blog on Urbanspoon! Spoonbacks are a way for you to share your posts on restaurants with everyone on Urbanspoon.
Here’s how it works.
- Pick a restaurant that you’re reviewing on your blog, go to the restaurant page on Urbanspoon, and click the link “add your review to this page”.
- Pick an image link (there are a bunch on that page to choose from, some really tiny, some bigger with more interesting info) that you want to add to your blog post.
- Copy the html into your blog post.
From there Spoonback will take over. It will notice the image, read in your post, and show a snippet from your post and a link to your blog from the restaurant’s page on Urbanspoon.
