    Yeah I read that earlier and I was like Lol wtf? This is the opposite of any normal person's thought process. Somebody should tell him that "looking like it came from a thrift store" isn't a positive attribute.

    I'm so glad I clicked on that kid's blog this morning. Gave me a good laugh.:laugh::laugh:

    also lolol close

    I'm amazed how many clashing color combinations of ties and pocket squares I see. They think they have sprez when in fact they have no sense of color coordination.

    The first key to writing good is to having good grammar

    I enjoy written content, I much rather prefer it over the tumblr style of having everything just endlessly reposted so I never know the original source or context of the picture. What is terrible about blogs is that the written content has non substance, it's just a personal diary for people to muse on and wax poetry. I'd much rather prefer a cold analytical approach. Comparing fits of clothing, commenting on the fabric, fit, and maintenance of their wardrobe. Really anything moderately relevant or partially practical makes for good reading material. Is this relevant to me? Am I gaining anything from reading this? robin's blog is a pretty good example because it tends to show case a few local Seattle stores (clothing and non) which is both highly relevant and practical info for me. Local food, culture, shopping experiences, newest designs, shit even stuff like decent recipes or good drinks would make for readable content.

    Only very rarely does a person's writing, or quality of photography alone make up for an interesting enough blog. Too bad 99% of blogs are styled this way.

    Just took a look through Phat Guido's blog, as well as his sister's. Good stuff. The ironing video is strangely mesmerizing.
