Blogger. The term itself has become one of fashion’s dirtiest words, a catchall axiom for superfluous clingers-on and fashion riff-raff. But why exactly is the blame for the bi-annual circus that fashion week has become — including overstuffed shows, fashion peacocks and Sartorialist-wannabes — falling on the shoulders of well-meaning bloggers? And why are the designers themselves (and their PR representatives who often aggressively enlist bloggers to post about their clients) getting off so easily?
You can say the same about other industries (including tech) where blogging has become a the media machine.

The term ‘Blogging’ has definitely fallen out of fashion.
same reason why district attorneys and prosecutors use the word like it’s derogatory when they use our words and ideas against us?! yeah, I don’t think I’ll ever forget how she said that to the jury in closing arguments, or my attorney doing an imitation of her antics. hilarious on one level, but mostly just mean h8rs and what do u do about that?
Too true. The fashion industry loves to be the transient bitch and if everyone else is doing it it just isn’t fashion darling?
Ha. Major League Baseball players most-hated used to be sports reporters, in ancient history. Later, the most-hated were labeled “talk-show callers.” I’m not current on baseball locker room vocabulary. I’m guessing the players today are not fond of either bloggers or Twitter users.
Let’s come up with a new name….and start all over again. http://bit.ly/1aEyK0d
