Blog: Ten minutes of fame

Catherine Sleep | 12 September 2006

The other day I was interviewed by Ross Bentley, a journalist writing an article about blogs for the food industry. It was kind of weird being on the other end of the notepad, as it were, and probably something all journalists should do now and again to remind them how it feels.

Anyway, Ross’s article is now available for all to read on Caterer & Hotelkeeper, and it’s an insightful piece you may enjoy. He talked to several food bloggers and a few industry observers.

I think the quote that resonates with me the most is “a good blog won’t avoid controversy”. It’s an interesting one – I’d never seek to upset anyone intentionally but if a blogger is going to be forthright and honest, it’s almost inevitable at times.
