Fashion Blogging. The online fashion diaries of many. Boys and Girls who started their blog to show their view on fashion or just to inspire others with their creative ideas. To be honest, I wonder where most of them went lately.What started so innocent as the girl in front of the mirror making pictures with her mobile phone has turned into a race about hits, views, rates and followers.
Almost every day my blog is getting the same comments with the question "I follow
you, you follow me back" and I think I'm not the only one who's more than sick of it. A serious reply on your content is soo much more worthy.Correct me if I'm wrong but it's starting to remind me of High School where you need to collect as much as possible votes (likes) to become the Student Council president. Do I really have to play this pathetic game at the age of 23 ?? Is that where blogging is for ?? I dont think so..
I'm not saying that it's wrong to promote your blog because visitors dont come out of nowhere but I follow you when you are inspiring to me, not just because I want you to follow me.
To be honest it seems to me that bloggers and a part of the Fashion industry forgot and don't care about the content as long if Google Friend connect, statics and all that are counting more than "Too much".
I can understand that a (part) of the fashion industry wants their brand or whatever to grow and to be seen by a big amount of people but there is more behind the horizon.
Now that fashion blogs are popping up like mushrooms it's hard to see the wood for the trees but creativity and great blogs are still out there. That's why I think it's stupid and wrong to stick by one select group of bloggers and forget about the rest. It's good to be more strict and selective when it comes to bloggers but keep your eyes open, give new creativity a chance, embrace it and think out of the box. It's time for a new way.
What your view is on this issue ?? Dont hesitate to comment me about it.
