Not This Mess Again!

Why, I'm even talking about this I don't know. I was emailed this by BlogLovin. *Sigh* You know I wish stuff like this would just stop. It's so unhealthy to the blogging community. Yet again, the same tired people (year in and year out) no diversity what so ever. People bringing their 'high-school popularity contest' mentality onto the web. Don't see how crap like this benefits the fashion/personal style blogging community. I also do not see ANY diversity in this line-up. I don't see any African-Americans or Hispanics bloggers. I do not see bloggers that focus on affordable fashion or Plus size fashions, and what's up with the reality TV actress, really, I mean really? This is just a numbers / traffic game for BlogLovin'. I can't! What are your thoughts?

    I totally agree. It’s really highschool and the lack of diversity is sickening.

    No African-Americans or Hispanics bloggers, no bloggers who focus on affordable fashion, curvy gals or even plus size fashions…..???

    Where and who do I write to – to complain? That is ridiculous.

      @ Marie – girl, save your keystrokes, because they are clearly not about diversity in the blogging community, it isn’t even about fashion, IMO it’s ‘traffic and numbers’ so they can increase their advertising. That’s why they picked those blogs!

    I agree with you. It is just silliness. People should blog because they want to not to be popular.

    I agree that the Blog Lovin’ awards seem to be one big echo chamber of the same folks congratulating themselves year in and year out. While I enjoy perusing some of the popular blogs from time to time, most of them don’t represent my cultural point of view at all. I’m always thrilled to find a great blog featuring people of color…especially when they are 30+! I think it’s nice to acknowledge folks who work hard to delivery a quality blog, but it does run against what I think should be the true spirit of blogging about personal style. And if you’re going to have these sorts of awards, at the very least they should honor different bloggers every year and not the same ones over and over. That gets old really fast.

      @ Sonya – so true. I agree with all the points you made. I know its not going to happen because they are only interested in blogs that will increase their traffic. :-|
