Blogging & Bloggers

What I like about reading blogs is that there is (often) new content everyday.  I follow a number of bloggers who rarely fail to update their daily outfits or fashion/beauty-related news and I find that although I don't like all of their posts, just having new stimulation a click a way is exciting (versus having to find new stimulation).  Unlike fashion magazine websites or sponsored bloggers (like on Glamour) I don't have to worry about pimping or undeserved hype, and I get to comment when I have an opinion and not be drowned by other comments.

What do you like about reading blogs? This is partly asked in the poll I have going now and it's partly for improving my blog and partly for satisfying my curiosity.

For actual news I follow Refinery29, Mama's Rolling Stone, and just recently: Teen Vogue (not sure if it's a keeper yet). I wanted to follow Vogue UK's daily outfit blog but couldn't find the feed. I'm also looking for a decent feed from one of the Finnish magazines...

What I like about blogging is that I get to share my findings, share my new haircut (that even yobu didn't notice until I asked him), share my hauls, and I think especially other bloggers will understand just how much trouble blogging can be, or just how much trouble picking out the perfect outfit or doing the perfect make up/hair can be.  It also means that my personal blog will be saved from my strange rantings of new products, and my facebook friends won't have to deal with my strange feed notes about what I saw in the store today. What do you like about blogging?

And to close, don't you just love this black leather jacket blogged by Advanced Style? I think I need to pay more attention to granny styles now...
