"We love as much coverage of fashion as possible. We don't care at all where it comes from, and we embrace bloggers and video and social networking, and anyone that's talking about fashion is a good thing. And we now have our own website that incorporates all of that. But I think what's interesting to us with this new phenomenon that 'everyone's a fashion editor, everyone's a fashion writer' is that all of that actually helps Vogue, because we have access and the understanding of fashion that, forgive me, but maybe some bloggers and some of the newcomers to this world have a little bit less experience of, but as I said, the more the merrier. We embrace it." Anna Wintour speaking at Pratt this past week.
I love that a group of bloggers was featured in the March American Vogue. This year the Council of Fashion Designers of America sent off nominating ballots to a hand-picked group of bloggers including Tavi and Bryanboy. Blog, blogged, blogger, blogging, blogosphere - the only blog-related words in my online Oxford American Dictionary. My favorite word, bloggerati, is not included. Oh and there's nothing on blog in the Oxford Writer's Thesaurus.
This is actually meant to be sort of an I Love Bloggers and Blogging post so without further pictures, videos and language ... here are a handful of links that I didn't know about when I began my very, very new blog.
http://heartifb.com/2010/03/22/evolving-influence-videos ... Independent Fashion Bloggers has absolutely everything a blogger needs: community, polls, videos, friends, a badge for your site. It's grown and grown and moving the main site to a new server that should be up tomorrow. You can set up a home page which miraculously keeps track of your tweets, your blog entries, your friends blogs, polls, everything. There's always someone to chat with and it's all about blogging. And you can follow the founder, the very nice Jennine Jacob @thecoveted. And @IFB is now on twitter too.
