We could write this entire post on how unworthy people who wear pants from H&M were invited to fashion week and we weren’t, but that would hurt too much. Instead we’ll be focusing on something else that has been giving us a headache for quite some time: 20 something bloggers.
We know, you might be thinking that we fall into this category. Meaning that we are 20 somethings, and we blog. However, our disdain for these “authors” comes from the sheer lack of sophistication in both topics and writing styles.
We could sit here and talk about our daily outings, outfits, and brunches too, but would any of you be interested in that? No. We don’t care that you had french toast and it was “soo good” and made your “mouth water”. We do not need to be up to date with your saliva habits, thank you very much. Perhaps the worst type of post is the “outfit of the day”. Curse the woman who made this an acceptable idea. You simply cannot write a quality post based solely on your outfit. Particularly if your outfit is made up of “brands” (using the term loosely) like: H&M, Target, Forever 21, Love Culture, Charlotte Russe, American Apparel and god forbid your shoes are from Payless. What a STEAL. I’m sure those will last for a long time. I digress. We couldn’t care less about what you’re wearing, and if you think that sharing with your readers that a white button down is a great staple piece is groundbreaking information, you’re wrong.
If we can get past the topic, it’s a rarity that we can finish a post due to the lack of writing skills. We cannot stress proofreading enough. We will not stand for spelling mistakes like using the wrong “to”. We will not stand for starting a sentence with “As well”. We will not stand for writing the way that you speak, if the way that you speak is “Sooo like yesterday I went to the mall so today I’m gonna show you everything I got in a random haul LOL”. You are a travesty and we will not listen to you for one more second.
The only bloggers we follow with any admiration are Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere, Julia of Gal Meets Glam Blair of Atlantic-Pacific and Leandra of Man Repeller. They can do whatever they want. And so can we.
