Perth's Hottest 100 Food Blogs 2016

You are here: Home » Perth » Perth’s Hottest 100 Food Blogs 2016

I pondered until the 13th hour whether I should continue with the tradition of Chompchomp’s Hottest 100 Perth food blogs for this year. I confess the blog has taken a temporary back seat over the past few weeks as I recover from multiple gluten poisonings and Christmas over indulgences. Updating the list is a huge endeavour that involves a lot of researching and double-checking each blog for suitability. However after much encouragement and a little help from the Boy, we have managed to put the list together for Perth’s Hottest 100 Food Blogs 2016.

As per last year, in order to qualify for the Perth’s Hottest 100 Food Blogs list, blogs need to be based in Western Australia and their content needs to be predominantly about food. I have excluded any blogs that haven’t published content in the last twelve months. Blogs that have with no Alexa ranking data are also been excluded. If I have missed or excluded your blog off my list and you do qualify for the criteria; I apologise profusely. Just send me an email or comment below and I will add you to next year’s list.

This year has shown some interesting changes in the Perth food blogging world, most notably a massive drop in both blog numbers and readership. Many wonderful Perth food blogs have become inactive, or lost readership to the point they have no Alexa ranking. Consequently there are now less than 100 blogs with a ranking that make the list. So really, this is a Hottest Nearly 100 list! I hope you all enjoy and find some new blogs to read along with reuniting with those you love.

Just a little word about Alexa ranking; Alexa Internet is a US-based subsidiary company of Amazon that provides commercial web traffic data. It estimates traffic by comparing how a website is doing compared to all other sites on the Internet over the past 3 months. Alexa’s website describes this rank as being “calculated using a combination of the estimated average daily unique visitors to the site and the estimated number of page views on the site over the past 3 months. The site with the highest combination of unique visitors and page views is ranked #1”. To give you an idea of how it goes, Google is number one closely followed by Facebook. Noodlies has given a more detailed explanation on Alexa’s merits and pit falls when used for ranking blogs.To read more about the Alexa ranking please refer to their site at

18 Thoughts on “Perth's Hottest 100 Food Blogs 2016

  1. Oh dear, i hope your over the gluten poisoning you poor thing :( But Im so pleased you did manage to compile the list again Martine! You do a fab job and i really look forward to going through it each year to discover great new Perth blogs. Well done you xx p.s. personally, i think a lot of foodies are existing on IG or FB, rather than a stand alone blog nowadays. I guess its quicker and easier – it takes a lot of time and commitment to be a blogger!! :)

    • Well done for spending the time to do this again Martine! You’re amazing! :)

      I think you’re right Amanda. I have noticed some bloggers are moving away from their blogs to being ‘Instabloggers’.

      I’m not sure what’s going on with my blog. I don’t have enough data to rank. My blog stats did go down a bit when I didn’t blog a lot last year and stopped blogging in July/August but not a huge dip. When I started blogging more regularly from September, my numbers started to rise again and are now almost back at what they were in 2014/early 2015. Meh – I’ve never done this for the numbers though… just the enjoyment :)

  2. I really do appreciate the list. I follow it for a few years and I’m surprised but happy to see my humble space on it…even if it’s towards the end! Lol you work is valuable so keep it up! And hope you feel better soon.. Gluten poisoning would be awful.

  3. Love your work babes – can’t believe how much time and effort you have put into this list especially with your dream cat hospital opening so soon.

    Interesting insight re the Perth blogging space changing and hope you don’t have any more poisonings! Surely you’ve had your fair share for 2016 already xxx

  4. Thank you for sharing this list :) I haven’t been following up with my blog for few months due to my job :( and I was so surprised to see it in the list. Such inspiring Perth bloggers!

  5. Last year seemed like a really difficult year for many of us. I was a little apprehensive to open your post as I had a feeling that I might not have even hit the top twenty (having posted… uh, maybe once every 3 months last year?!). It makes me feel a little humbled to know that people have continued to read and maintain interest despite my huge inconsistency and slightly maudlin dialogue! I am so, so sorry to hear that the horrible gluten poisonings, discomfort and health issues have continued Martine. I’ve been thinking of you (as I have no I idea how you continue on with commitments, suffering such pain!) and i hope you experience some relief soon. Thanks to you and the boy for bringing this to us yet again. You are amazing and I will continue to keep you in my prayers! xxx

    • Thanks Laura for your kind thoughts, and you are so right, the year 2015 brought a lot of burdens for many of us. Your blog’s content is always timeless and beautiful and I had no doubt you would hold your own despite a lower number of posts. I love your little updates on Loki’s cheeky habits too. He is just so adorable. Let’s wish for a happy, healthy 2016, lots of love xx

    • Thanks Helen, it is certainly the way times are turning but it is beautiful to see some of the stayers that have persisted and consistently improved. Hope you are well xx

  6. Hi Martine 😀 thank you so much for compiling up a list! I remember reading the last year one at the start of 2015 and can’t believe now it’s already 2016! 😀 hope this year will be another year filled with awesome food adventure XD

    Get well soon :))

    • Hi Inex, it is my pleasure. I love having this resource updated each year even if it is a mammoth effort! Congratulations for doing to well, you put a lot of effort into your blog so well deserved. xx

  7. I hope you’re feeling better soon love. Damn gluten huh? Thanks for taking the time to pull this together again and I’m honoured to feature in it this year more than ever before, as we’ve just (a few weeks ago) moved from WA back home to NZ! So I’m guessing this will be the last year I’ll ‘qualify’. Wishing you all the best, Emm xx

    • Congratulations Emma you have earned a well deserved sign off from the Perth blogging scene. Your blog is a wonderful creative piece of beauty don’t ever stop! All the best for your new life back in your home lands, stay in touch! xx

  8. Thanks for putting the list together again Martine! I took a small break at the end of last year but have recently posted a new recipe which I’m hoping to post a few more this year too!! Good luck with your new business, you must be busy!! Take care xx

    • Hi April, yes I can empathise as I too needed to take a break from blogging. Things are still quite mental busy but we open (hopefully) in two weeks or so. Keep up with the blogging you do an amazing job. xxxx

  9. Thank you for taking the time and effort to compile all of this, I’m really grateful to be on the list. Hope to keep on reading everyone’s awesome blogs :)
