Another aspect that struck me is that if a guy follows several different blogs and visit them on a almost daily basis, he is actively seeking a form of information overload and can choose to be picky with his focus of attention.

Or is the influence of a style/look/combination more important than the actual brand?
    I'm an avid blog reader myself, but most have already been mentioned here...including Put This On (cough cough).
Noticed that the discussion in here has died a bit, but with regards to blogs, I'd love hear hear you guys' opinion on this thread.  
---Edit--- This thread was temporarily deleted as I, rather eagerly, stupidly, and naively, referred to it in other threads concerning blogs, which I was following. I have cleared it with the admins so that I hopefully can get some help for my study. I apologize to anyone offended.   Do you follow any style/fashion blogs? I would love to hear how you relate to these and whether you believe that they can affect your purchase decisions, desires, and...
