Marian Kihogo on why she is thinking of giving up blogging

Some serious food for thought

So I know I said I was going to bed but I though I should share this post on Marian's blog and it's a must-read if you're a fashion blogger or thinking of becoming one.

There was also a post by The Times, the Global Herald and Demi Couture on the same subject and it sounds like a serious lesson in etiquette and manners needs to be learned. The same way bloggers quickly rose to fame is the same way we can quickly crash and burn if we're not careful, and it's a shame that a few bad eggs should ruin the whole breakfast. I was actually discussing this with a fellow blogger and we were saying how excited and privileged we felt to even be able to see the few shows we did this season and I wish others would see it as what it is, a privilege and not a right. Bloggers pulling a 'do you know who I am' at fashion shows is soo not on. Yes I know who you are: nobody. And that goes for your dog too.

I love love love your blog header illustration! What a lovely piece. Did you do it?

Darling this is indeed an issue as it would be a shame for the minority to reflect badly on the majority.

Have a gorgeous rest of day

Thank you, it's by this amazing illustrator Natsuki Otani. Like I was saying on your blog post, I'm sure it will eventually get better, and a natural selection differentiating the good vs the bad will occur.
