The BAWK Apple - Chicks of Fashion Blogging

Shoes in New YorkPhoto of chicken legs

You say poootatoe

I say potaaatoe!





My sugar is so refined
She's one o' them high-class kind
She doesn't wear a hat, she wears a chapeau
She goes to see a cinema, but never a show...

Alice:  Here a chick, there a chick, everywhere a chick, chick.  Old New York has some chicks - Iman, Iman, OOOOO!

 Chook, Chook! A Chicken Fashion dream come true to see Iman at the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference in Soho.






Joanie B: Bawk! What about the business of (fashion) blogging?

Alice: I scratched some notes down - like -

"The future of fashion is blogging."

"Brands want bloggers to bring their products alive - the personal/emotional touch"

"Readers want fun and they want meaningful."

"Make yourself a celebrity in your own locality...

Joanie B: Wraaawk - I'm a celebrity in my own mind at the Milpitas Library!

Alice: Yawwk! Become your own brand without being obnoxious... 

My sugar is so refined
She's got a real high-class mind...

And you should see how She holds a cup of tea
With just two fingers while She sticks out three...

My sugar is so refined
She's one o' them high-class kind*

Notes from Laurenjoan:

Blogging is big business - in fashion, in politics, in writing, in art, in food, in libraries...any where you look these days. . .

From educator and blogger Tom Whitby  -- What’s the big deal about Blogging? -- "There were two words that as an educator I come in contact with almost every day. Two words that have changed the way information is exchanged...the two words are “Blog” and “Post”. Sometimes they appear as one, “Blogpost”.

So - for the business of blogging - you've got some great resources at hand from Santa Clara County Library - try these out for size:
