  4. 4. Spreading The Important Stuff:Celebrity Gossip<br /> <br />“It is remarkable what a smart individual with passion can do with a blog. People have blogged their way to dream jobs (and book deals) through the ideas they express.” – Derek Meerman Scott <br />
  5. 5. Fashion Blogs: The Fashion Bomb<br />“I decided to publish my own blog on fashion andstyle and talk about what I wanted to talk about to people who sharedsimilar interests.”<br /><ul><li>Claire Sulmers
  6. 6. Fashion Journalist</li></ul>“It used to be that only a handful of elites were deemedworthy of relaying our most important stories. Now anyone with a passion, interest, and computer, can purvey their thoughts to a concentrated readership.”<br />“Blogging allows people who have opinions, work hard, and have a voice to be read by thousands if not millions of people. It&apos;s important to have several different voices in the mix so that there&apos;s something out there for everyone.”<br />
  7. 7. Self-Expression: Cliff Notes<br />“I started my blog because two of my friends suggested that I create a blog and entitle it ‘Cliff Notes’ so I did. My blog doesn’t have a specific genre or topic. I write about whatever i feel is relevant to me as well as people that are open minded and have an eye to see what is &quot;dope&quot;. – Cliff Skighwalker<br />
