I haven't done a "Fashion and Philosophy" post in a long while,
I saw this as a perfect opportunity ;)
*(Remember these are my thoughts only)*
I just paroozed the IFB weekly roundup of Links a La Mode, and of course the first one I clicked on was yet another "What's wrong with Blogs" ... Or better yet the writers/creators of them.
The"Question my approach, Should I feel bad about myself" links
that seems to dominate most groups these days...
I honestly don't even know who or what site it came from (I swear!),
but just for a moment can't we just see it for what it is, and stop dissecting fashion blogs? They aren't about brain surgery,
but fashion, personal style (and pretty,inspiring pictures).
Style and Fashion blogging!
It's really just a simple forum to talk and display what it is that attracts us all to fashion...
Sure, great, original content is a bonus, but also the cool outfits and ideas are probably what keeps most people coming back to our little old blogs in the first place... Yes, most folks of this generation,(as in me), have the attention span of a gnat on crack, but that's OK.
It still is what it is.
Pretty pictures, learning something new, fun DIY's, new friends,and showing off how clever we can be on occasion.
I don't think I need a dissertation on the mechanics of brain surgery or a course in existential thought (at least not on a style blog). I'm sure there are lots of blogs for that. Don't get me wrong, there are great style bloggers with terrific content, I admire that!
I suppose I just hope that we continue to remember that Fashion Blogging isn't brain surgery, but a forum to just be ourselves (which does sometimes include a bit of philosophy), inspire, and appreciate each other whether through text or cool images ...
I believe there's room for both...
outfit post to resume tomorrow ;)
