My friend Robert and I had an interesting conversation last week: How do you show intellect on a style blog? Outside of a certain expertise or passion for fashion - how does someone demonstrate their intelligence on a style blog? Short of writing dissertations or talking about the faltering Euro or the latest development in nano technology - how do you stay on point with a style blog, especially if that's the only way some people know you, and still illustrate that you're interested in the world around you, and you're not shallow and superficial? Has anybody else dealt with this? Or is the question itself pointless? Maybe there's no need to demonstrate intelligence (aside from knowledge and interest in a very specific area) in a forum like this?
~ Thank you Ori for taking the pictures ~
And speaking of taking pictures, on yesterday's post I mentioned that I had to rely on the kindness of a complete stranger to take my blog pictures one day. A lot of you were really nice about sharing your own challenges with getting pictures taken for your blogs and I loved reading about all varied experiences. I have to give a special mention to two lovely women: Morgan and Romilla. These two colleagues, and friends, each emailed me yesterday after they saw the post (and I can only assume took pity on me) offering to take pictures for me if I should need help. You know what? People are wonderful. Thank you Morgan and Romilla for the offer, and I will certainly take you each up on the offers.
