OK, so obviously the asshole who put this sign up outside his bar during SxSW has not come across Fired 'n' Fabulous yet...obvi. Kidding. I could care less. If there are bloggers out there pulling the "Don't you know who I AM?!" stunt, then they deserve it. (Who are you, Justin Long?)
However, a lot of people DO give a shit about bloggers. They are being taken more and more seriously (Hello, this teenager sat front row at every major show during Fashion Week!), and little of that has to do with the fact that they are real writers. Most aren't. I know a lot of amazing writers with unsuccessful blogs--the two don't really go hand-in-hand. You have to just kinda...get it. I'm by no means the authority on blogs, and mine is a constant work in progress, but I think I have a general idea of what works and what doesn't. I try to keep it real and write about things people can relate to, while sprinkling in a bit of fun and fabulosity here and there. And I really try to cut myself off when I start to ramble. (I'm constantly asking myself, "Would anyone care about this?") Right, I think it's about that time.
So you tell me: Do you think bloggers are real writers? What do you think makes a good blog? And how many blogs do you follow regularly?
Oh and I FINALLY have a winner for the PH8 tote bag giveaway--I totally forgot about picking a winner! And the lucky reader is...RACHEL! Shoot me an email with your addy and I'll get it to you :)
