The Weekend Edition

Happy October, friends! Welcome to your weekly recap of what caught our attention around the internet and what’s going on around here…

Around the Internet Lately

Vogue Blogger “Discussion” 

Plus, I must mention the blogger discussion that has been going on in the fashion industry this week, since Vogue posted this article. Read more about the Vogue blogger takedown and Fashionista’s opinion that it’s embarrassingly out of touch here. Then be sure to check out this well thought out and wonderfully written counterpoint to Vogue from The Fashion Law.

What are your thoughts? 

Let me know in the comments. Or ask me questions, if you have them. And I’ll reply to you with more of my thoughts… 😉

    Hi Carrie,
    Thanks for the link to the Vogue article. Frankly, I do not really buy Vogue (never have been a regular subscriber), as it was way too aspirational and fantasy like for me. When Wintour took over, I did see it become more accessible (not the clothes necessarily) but the way they interacted with their readership. So, that I think has been a positive shift on the continuum.

    Blogging is part of that shift, I think. I do not really have a problem with the article. I think there will is always a dynamic tension when new ways of doing things (business, tech, and fashion) and the fallout from that (the good, the bad…yes, some bad bloggers, etc) Not surprised this article has generated a bit of controversy 🙂

      Hi Sheri,

      Great thoughts. A couple of points I’ll share a few follow up thoughts…

      1. There are some bad bloggers… By “bad”, I mean that there are bloggers who give the roll a bad reputation for a number of reasons – not developing quality content, being in it just for free product, etc, etc. The onus is on us as publishers to be professional in how we conduct ourselves and our business.

      2. I take issue with the hypocrisy of the piece. That hypocrisy is at least two fold. First, content in magazines is largely driven by advertising and free perks that editors get. Second, Vogue pushes bloggers when it’s advantageous to them — i.e., street style galleries that drive clicks to their site, featuring bloggers on their covers internationally, etc.

      3. To your last point, I totally agree with the dynamic tension during times of change. However, I think this criticism took everyone aback because this discussion has already taken place YEARS ago — like 2006-2007.

      Also, I added a link above in the article to recent comments by Neiman Marcus. That plays to your point about tension during change, embracing change, etc.

      I appreciate your comment. i always enjoy our conversations.
