Savage Blogging

Edited by Vahni of Grit & Glamour

Savage Beauty. Don’t tell me you haven’t heard the paradoxically exquisite title of the Alexander McQueen exhibit currently mesmerizing the fashion world and the blogosphere. I mention it for two reasons. First, a couple bloggers in this week’s roundup show you the exhibit in New York—as well as a satellite version in London—through their own lenses. So if you didn’t know about it, check out their posts and resurrect your fashion cred.

Savage Blogging. Now that’s my title, and while it was inspired by the McQueen exhibit, it also characterizes the approach many bloggers take, as well as entries this week that speak to the issue. Want to be haute stuff in the blog world, like The Sartorialist? Think it’s all a numbers game? Well, I certainly hope not. That is savage blogging: when your objective ceases to be the art of it, the connection, and you are devoured by an obsession with your numbers. When you get so big that you forget you used to be a nobody until fellow bloggers read your blog and lifted you up. When you stop conversing, and simply become a talking head. With a camera. No thanks.

As blogging and social media mature, many are finally realizing what my mama told me years ago: You get more flies with honey. Don’t be savage bloggers, loves. When you give and interact genuinely, your star will shine, I promise you. Your numbers will grow, and people won’t write you any “open letters” to remind you that you’ve gotten a little too big for your britches. Honey, honeybuns. Got it?

 Thank you so much to Vahni for including my post this week, and congrats to everyone on the list.

Reading Vahni`s wise words on savage blogging I was agreeing with her out loud, feeling that what she said goes to the core of what authentic blogging is about.

Let`s dare to keep it true, sweethearts.


 I would love to connect with you!   @AnikaByAnika   Facebook

Anika this is such a thoughtful blog…it is absolutely true that you have to forget the numbers, the scores, the hits etc. Etc. to genuinely interact with the people who read and like your blogs. The moment you loose the authenticity you might as well start dishing out “automated” blogs. Also another point learnt from your blog is to enjoy the journey, the results will follow!!
