You could say that Kim Muncey loves to eat out. But that
would be an understatement.
Katelyn Nelson's insight:

This article provides an intriguing look at a different type of food blogger: not those who blog about recipes they have created or tried, but rather one who acts as a kind of “everyman” food critic. There are links towards the end for a few of these food blogs. Though they are all based in Montreal, they may prove interesting to explore.

Katelyn Nelson's insight:

This article provides a look at both the freedoms and drawbacks of freelance writing about food. The author writes that a food blogger “has the leeway to tell the story of the recipe not as it should be but as it is, as it lives and breathes in home kitchens,” but adds that without the discerning eye of an editor, many blogs can deteriorate into stream-of-conscious ramblings. The author finishes with a brief look at the ethics involved in citizen journalism.
