Bogging versus journalism will forever be an ongoing debate. Undoubtedly there are distinctions between blogging and journalism which may spark a discussion however, is there a sharp distinction between the two disciplines? I think the two have merged together over time. Using a popular site known as fashionbombdaily.com, I have reason to believe it is both a blog and journalist site that provides readers with what they want. What started out as fashionbomb.blogspot.com solely about shopping grew into content about celebrities, particularly in the event that publisher and founder Claire Sulmers was asked where songstress Ciara received her dress she was wearing. With a fully productive staff the site is a space to showcase all things celebrity and fashion using multiple social media sites that include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Pinterest to network and inform celebrities when they’re being talked about and in turn, sometimes celebrities will retweet a link to their followers which means their fans will come to the the site for the latest scoop. The site is very thorough and consistent on the news they provide for their readers. At the same time they also encourage their readers to help in providing information that may be difficult to retrieve at times. Almost 10 years in the blogosphere the site’s credibility has never been waivered or questioned making it one of the top sites for daily insight in the celebrity world.
This presentation is a quick introduction into “The Shade Room” blog. The blog offers readers quick insiders to the hottest celebrity news, fashion tips, and unraveling social issues. This blog unlike others such as “Entertainment tonight”, “Access Hollywood” , or even “TMZ” is designed in a way that specifically understands its audience and targets them in a way that has made the blog a huge success.
