When I was first approached about becoming a contributor to Lunch.com back in November of 2008  I took a bit of time to survey the site before agreeing to come on board.  As I recall, my biggest concern was that much of the content appeared to lean in the direction of what I would characterize as "pop" culture.  Since my moniker is "The real world is so much more interesting" I wondered whether there would be any room on this site for what I enjoyed doing most, namely reviewing non-fiction books and anthology CD's.  I was also concerned about the fact that was I a good bit older than most of the people already on the site at that time.  I expressed my concerns to the individual who had sent me the invite and he assured me that Lunch.com was definitely interested in what I had to offer.  Over the past 20 months I have spent countless hours adding content to the site.  Thus far, I have been extremely impressed with just about everybody associated with the site, most especially the staff.  I have found that the people in the office are extremely responsive to any concerns that I might have.  Such a refreshing change from some other sites!    Likewise, I have found the caliber of person contributing to Lunch.com thus far to be outstanding as well.  Let's hope this continues as the site grows in the weeks and months ahead!
 

Being someone who has absolutely no aptitude for designing and building anything I have really appreciated how Lunch.com has evolved over the past two years.  And I am certain that the site it is only going to get better.  I love the way that fact and opinion on the data points are now side by side.  Everything is neat and clean and very visible.  Outstanding job!  So whether your passion is cooking, fishing, yoga or books this is the place to share your knowledge and expertise.  At the same time you can learn from others about subjects you would like to know more about.  Using Lunch.com's unique similarity network you are sure to meet lots of other people who share your ideas and opinions.  I have met quite a few already. 

All in all I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here.  I am prodding more of my friends to give it a try.  I am convinced that those who painstakingly developed this site are well on their way to accomplishing what they set out to do at the outset.  Lunch.com is rapidly becoming the place to "feed your curiosity".   If you are considering joining us then by all means give it a try.     And don't be shy about jumping right into the fray by taking a poll, rating some data points or offering some quick tips.   You definitely won't regret it.     Very highly recommended!

I agree......sometimes I get tired of seeing products reviewed, like "Bac-os" for instance. Who cares?? I love that your reviews are on the serious side, and I long to read opinions that have some depth to them. It's nice to know that there are some great thinkers out there!

It is a fun site, and you've added a lot to it with your book reviews, which I enjoy reading--and I may actually get around to some of those books soon. Thanks!

I agree. I also love non-fiction books and enjoy your reviews. Thanks for your time. (I am 65.)

Okay, here's that odd circumstance where I am being offered something for nothing and whining about it.     As you can probably tell from my rating, I generally like Lunch.com. One of the site owners found my work on Epinions.com and asked me to drop in and give Lunch.com a quick whirl, even offering a little bit of payment as an incentive. With Epinions.com swirling ominously around the suckage drain at the moment, I shrugged and said "Well, why not?" And did I mention Lunch.com …

I blogged about Lunch.com on my personal blog (Sharrie.TV) 2 days ago.   Here it is:   As some of you might have know, I was into travelogues many years ago. Spent majority of my waking hours on VirtualTourist. Made some great friends along the way too & got to see many parts of the world which I otherwise wouldn't have step into!      Well, the boss JR Johnson sold it off (I believe he did unless I got my facts wrong!) and is beginning to …

Well, they got me.  I can't remember exactly when I came to Lunch.com.  It was in late December, and when I first got here, I must admit, I was not nearly as impressed.  But they were gracious enough to send me an invite and so I accepted.  Because I was curious.  The site was, for the most part nice, and they just kept improving.  Are there any immediate problems I have with the site now?  Well, not that haven't already been addressed …

This is a review that I have been contemplating for quite some time now and one that I certainly take no great joy in writing.  But after spending more than three years contributing to Lunch.com I have finally come to the realization that the high hopes that I had for this site are probably never going to be realized. The clarion call to "Feed Your Curiosity" is what attracted me to the site in the first place.   The prospect of engaging other members in writing …

It's interesting how community managers disappeared entirely from the site as soon as they are not on payroll! Beats me who is actually running this site now or it's simply on auto-pilot these days. As for me, I hardly switched on the laptop these days and writing for leisure on the iPad or iPhone is not my forte.      If a founder is no longer passionate about his/her site, should the members or employees really be?!

Dear nonexistent people who who keep popping up at random: If you're only posting a phony profile of a person who doesn't actually exist, don't follow my work! You're a waste of space and having your name on my followers list is a discredit to me. If you're not an active poster and/or have never been an active poster and/or have no intention of ever being an active poster, you have no business placing me - or really ANYONE AT ALL - on your follow list!

   Well, I'm not going to lie to you. Other than logging out for 15 minute coffee breaks at work or signing off for the end of the day, lunch is what I look forward to. Considering the work I do, lunch can never be heavy nor can I indulge myself in something too sweet. Perhaps a snack that's low in carbs, salts, & sugars will suffice while I catch up on emails or what not. Lunch is a very peaceful time of day where you kick back & relax while …

What's this—another social networking site??  Well, not exactly.  Unlike the other popular leading sites, MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter, Lunch.com  uses your personal likes and dislikes to scientifically connect you with other members; it keeps a tab on what kind of things you like and makes no assumption that you are already seeking a connection with long lost friends, family, or coworkers. "It's not who you know, but what you know" on Lunch.com.      …

What can I say? One could get addicted! Great for exploration and engaging one's curiosity!

Please consider that this is a fictionalized account of how Lunch.com came to be. Once upon a time, there was an empty space in the information super-highway… Two exciting creative women met in the world of flashing lights.. One was called Healthy Rache. Another was called LingEatsCake. Healthy Rache insists that this empty spot in the cyberspace be made into her own image that it be made "Healthy" and full of energy and life. LingEatsCake insists that it be filled by all the sweetness of life--love …

I guess I would qualify as a frustrated writer. My work requires very little writing and so since 1999 I have been writing reviews on non-fiction books and anthology CD's on amazon.com. I never could … more
