« Absolut Brooklyn Sangria | Main | Video Recipe: Grilled Chicken Thighs with Absolut Brooklyn BBQ Sauce »



I find this all very icky. Bloggers, especially local ones, are part of a community and should act as such. Giving Louise and others a public lashing was just wrong. But kudos to Brownstoner and AY....they got the results they wanted. Tons of snarky comments.

Here's how I feel about the Blogfest, which I've now gone to 3 years in a row. I get to meet fellow bloggers, new and old. It's nice to receive acknowledgment from bigger blogs and as a "seasoned" blogger myself, I love to be able to advise those just starting out.

That's what it's all about. Spike Lee or not.

It was great meeting you, Heather!


rh: what I find a little icky is bloggers not having a voice at their own festival, to be given the chance to debate and question. That is what blogfest used to be about. you were at previous events -- remember how they used to be more inclusive? Did you ever hear Bob Guskind talk?
