I am currently doing my first steps with JSON-LD and try it on my private
blog. As far as I understand Blogposts do require a publisher field, which
can only be an organisation. But I think it should be possible for persons
to be publishers too, but I also would like to question, that blogposts or
even Websites do need a publisher field at all.

I tested my blog with Google's Structured Data Testing Tool. Interestingly
enough the tool did not complain about the publisher being a Person, but
that the publisher entitiy had no logo, which on the other hand is not
allowed as a field for a person.


I also tested the root of my blog, which is defined as website, also with
myself as a publisher person. This time the tool was fine with it.


thx, Gerald
