It seems, my critics are after my blood again following my DIY dress day yesterday. So now I want to make a couple of things CRYSTAL clear because people are either misunderstanding my intentions with Style Bubble or are miunderstanding me!
1) I am very happily employed in digital advertising. I have NO intentions of pursuing a career in fashion journalism/styling as a full time-career. I’m not trying to worm my way into Vogue House or anything of the sort!
2) Any styling/writing work I undertake is purely voluntary and done during my leisure time.
3) My reason in writing this blog is to take my interest in fashion and get something from it – an end product as it were. It’s my way of culminating all my ideas, thoughts and findings that I constantly have. Prior to blogging, it was literally a Muji notepad and contributions to forums.
4) If my writing style is not deemed professional enough, this is because I’m NOT a fashion journalist and have no intentions of becoming one (as Lol B pointed out) Ergo, why would I write like one? I’m also very visual with my blog so I’m not exactly going to be writing theses that would bore you to tears anyway.
5) Finally, ye critics take the time to leave comments on my blog which is frankly a waste of your precious pro-journo time. A better alternative would just be to close the browser if you accidentally stumble onto my page. If you do intentionally come here to check up on what mistakes I’m making on my ‘inconsequentional’ blog, then I can’t feel anything but pity for you.
I don’t want to have to start deleting comments or blocking anyone because like phantom critic said – the internet is a democratic place, and I welcome difference in opinions. But if you just start ragging on me randomly, I will just block your IP address as Orchide suggested. By the by, with some nerdy sleuthing, said critic’s IP address does INDEED reveal him/her to be working at a London magazine – which one, I can’t say, but honestly, anymore pointless comments, and I will have to get in touch in person!
