Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I suppose because I still only really frequent personal blogs, albeit many with their own different slant and focus, it rather surprises to hear that 'blogging now is a vehicle for competitive foodieism, personal branding, and all forms of marketing', though I dare say it's true elsewhere, and I had noticed the huge number of very rarefied foody blogs around. But, though it may be less and quieter than it was, it seems to me personal blogging is alive and well, and long-standing blogs like this one of consistent quality and commitment maintain and inspire that.

I do like the idea of blogging snippets from one's reading, interesting...
