panel Travel Bloggers Greece recently spread the word about “Blogging and the Foodie Generation” at the 4th Annual Xinis Education Festival of Gastronomy which took place on 18 March 2015 at the Municipality of Glyfada.

Co-Founders of TBG, Elena Sergeeva and Marissa Tejada, took the stage at the Glyfada Town Hall to talk about why food and travel blogging has taken off and how blogging and social media can make an impact on a food brand/blog/business.

One particular slide in Elena and Marissa’s presentation that got a few laughs was a cartoon Simpson’s character. No longer can we say “Food is to eat, not to Tweet!”
