Food & Wine Blogging - No Publisher, No Editor- Is it Good Enough | Litfest A Food and Drinks Literacy Festival at Ballymaloe

Blog: noun 
A personal website or web page on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis.
There was a time when if you wanted to share your printed musings on the subjects of food and wine (or indeed other subjects) with the general public, you broadly needed either an editor who would publish you in a magazine or newspaper, or who was happy to publish your work in a book. 
All of that has changed and with the advent of blogging, you can self-publish immediately to the biggest single audience in the world - the world wide web. As the above definition states, a blog is a personal opinion – it can of course contain definitive and scientific detail, but it is the lack of an overseer that causes concern to some. 
Others will of course feel that this is perhaps one of the most democratic forums humankind has ever had at its disposal. The panel, all of whom have tapped the keyboards to send their words out into the blogosphere, will all have opinions on the subject and discuss the undoubted merits and possible downsides of this modern method of publishing.
