Who are Irish Buzz?
We are a group of dedicated ANTIbloggers.
We are either Irish by birth or by nature.
We are with vision.
Irish Buzz was born because each of us had a depth of knowledge in our particular field, but we wanted to give create something novel. To come together, think in the same vein. We had to find the crossover point.
We searched our psyches. We saw that while each of us came at the Irish condition from different angles, in our passion for Irish food and drink culture we were united. In its multifaceted, assorted aspects was the secret sauce that oozed through our veins. From the traditional recipes we learnt from a scandalously early age, to the Irish food traditions enlodged deep in our souls, and the history flowing from the kitchen of our people.
Irish food pivot
Ireland’s food heritage became the lens that focuses Irish Buzz. The pivot around which insightful content of practical and literary worth has been woven. It simply made sense to cooperate. By combining our knowledge, each of us could (attempt to) render something that usually unspoken but which is so deeply entwined in our lives.
But ours is a world diverse and constantly full of fusion, diffusion. We decided to bring our divergent expertise and perspectives to the table, but we would also merge them, mix them, overlap and underlap. This would surely make for a stupendous ANTIblog, boosting both reader and writer to a higher level.
Quality content, not relentless branding
We are all about content.
Because you are as weary as us from being constantly hijacked by hackneyed words. Frustrated with the non-stop marketing, and death threats unless you buy or bake whatever you’re told to.
If everyone treats us like we’re dumb, eventually we all will be – especially those who treat us like we already are. Redressing this situation and reducing the level of triteness is central to the ANTIblog concept and the core guidance laid down in The ANTIblog Manifesto. As a committed ANTIblog, Irish Buzz had to do their bit to change things.
The team behind Irish Buzz know us humans aren’t stupid – but that we are fed up of being treated that way. Our simple wish for changing the world is to simply be the change we wish to see in the world. This means doing our bit to depollute what is left of your space.
Blogging can be such a powerful tool, helping to interconnect the human species more deeply and jointly undertake worthwhile, rewarding pursuits. We have at our disposal a tool previous generations would have died for. But what do we use it for?
There are 500 million blogs out there. How many of them elevate and uplift?
Speaking without a face
Alongside our recipe guarantee, Irish Buzz brings you its zero visibility promise. That means not putting us at the center, but instead using this ANTIblog to create a space into which you, the reader, can lightly step. A place where content is paramount. And where your mind will find room to wander freely, be tweaked and spurred, and maybe even inspired.
We won’t be ramming down your neck who we are and exactly what we want you to do/think. We won’t be giving links to our beautifully branded faces at Saturday morning bake offs. And we won’t be putting on our best tunics and poshest accents to instruct as to how best to crack an egg.
We are otherwise.
Spirited insights from separate space
Instead, we will just bring you content that is clear, playful and insightful. This means leaving out unnecessary filler. Because it is just waste, yes. But also because it would stop us from showing you the deep worth of truly Irish. And would take away from your user experience. We are writers and so will just write, for your pleasure. Fun and spirited articles that elevate.
We promise just to be us, and encourage you to be the true you.
It might seem ludicrous, it might even be hard to understand, because we live in a world focused on promoting and ensuring maximum visibility. But in such a world there will naturally occur an opportunity for a separate space within which, if they choose to, people can steadily work away with great focus and dedication.
Such a space can be used to see deep.
We don’t insist you step out of the clutter and into the emptiness, but let us float there. Let us be unbranded messengers from this space, bringing the value of content created outside of reverberations from the same stale echo chamber.
Let us be nothing. Let us be all. Let us open a space where Irish dishes and Irish drinks are the focus, not the ultra-cool blogger that has to be given (and desperately needs) adoration. We don’t go in for that. We’ll be whatever you say we are.
A collective of award-winning chefs from all corners of the Irish world. A nomadic tribe of itinerant farmers camped outside your back door. Scythe-you-down-with-wit intellectual elites. Corporate stooges enlisted to speed up the process of world domination.
We’ll be _________.
You being you and getting to see our words is the only important thing.
We are just space.
The words will be left to shine through, and we’ll be there behind them, lingering in the mist. Actual humans, positing human thoughts and feelings. Not machines. Not vultures conditioned to service the line that gets you to blindly feed, click, buy, ape, appreciate, advocate.
We show you the world of both Irish dishes and Irish drinks. We want you to come out and play. We are just humans, and have a thing for doing humans things.
