Fridays are kinda big in the fashion blogosphere.
We’ve got our Friend Friday* (#FBFF) posts, which I usually participate in; Follow Friday (#FF) on Twitter; and that last push-one-more-post-out-before-the-end-of-the-week frenzy since we all know fashion bloggers don’t blog on Saturdays. They shop. Or date. Or wine. Or dine. Or all of the above, which for me, is the making of a perfect weekend.
This is not a Friend Friday post.
This week’s Friend Friday topic is about how bloggers participate in blog events—like 30 for 30—and still maintain their individual blog personas. I am not participating this week since I don’t participate in collective endeavors like 30 for 30 (30 wardrobe staples remixed for 30 days, with no shopping) or GAAD (the Great American Apparel Diet). And that’s because:
- I don’t have the time to shoot photos and post them daily.
- I’m too self-indulgent and I have a very short attention span.
- Life is too short to limit myself to only 30 pieces of my wardrobe, even if for only 30 days.
- You never know when a good sale might happen.
I don’t know how y’all do it, but hats off to you! Anyway.
This is a Friendly Friday post.
Since Friday somehow became the day of love and friendship in the blogosphere, I’m going to use my post for the day to cover a couple things. First…
OMG, NEXT WEEK IS EVOLVING INFLUENCE!!!
Yes, that fashion blogger conference. The one that just made the Harper’s Bazaar New York Fashion Week Hot List!
So excited. Truly. And I’ll be even more excited if my All Saints order arrives today as scheduled, and it’s perfect. That aside, several lovelies have contacted me about meeting up in New York—I’m only there Wednesday through half of Friday next week, and here is where you can find me:
- Wednesday, February 9—Wine Down Blogger Meetup
Click the image for event details in Facebook.
- Thursday, February 10—Evolving Influence Conference and After Party at The Chelsea Room.
When I’m not moderating from 11:00am to 12:30pm EST, I’ll be in the audience, probably tweeting my little fingers off. If you’ll be there, please come find me and say hello! If you plan to follow from afar, click over to G&G that day. I’ll have a post set up to make it a cinch to follow and feel involved, no matter where you are in the world.
If you didn’t score a ticket before they sold out, you could win one! Find out how you to win IFB Evolving Influence Conference Tickets, and some sweet swag—a video recorder and your video, professionally edited and distributed.
- Friday, February 11, 2011—Evolving Influence Workshops
That is, if I can get in. They are completely booked, so I don’t know. If not, I might have some free time that day. TBD.
Facebookers and friends, please welcome G&G to the dark side…
Speaking of being friendly, I’ve revived the Grit & Glamour Facebook page. Make no bones about it—I still detest Facebook for many reasons aside from the fact that is is an impossible application to work with. OK, that wasn’t very friendly.
Apparently the majority of the free world prefers to get its social media fix there…and oh, that little meetup invitation on Wednesday next week? Facebook. I can’t escape. So as they say, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. I’ve tried to find many of your blog pages and add them as G&G favorites. If I missed you and you have a page, please let me know.
*The Friend Friday project by Modly Chic is a way for fashion bloggers to share more about themselves and create a friendly connection with other bloggers. Join the Fashion Beauty Friend Friday Google Group to participate.
