Greetings! So this weeks assignment was to research varies artist/designer blogs that you find interesting. We were encouraged to research blogs that dealt with our particular fields of interests. My particular filed is that of Performing Arts. Because of my profession, I research daily what’s the “up and up” with the theatre world in New York City and more. Although I’m actor, leisurely the majority of blogs that I tend to thread are fashion blogs. I have in the coming years become more and more interested in the world of men’s fashion, and so there are several blogs that I tend to go to when and if I ever need a tip on what to wear for an event. I have found that any genre or field can and do have blogs.
One of the first things I do every morning is check out this blog. Broadwayworld.com is a great source for information on local, national, and international theatre. A main reason why I like this site is because of it’s unique format videos, articles, and casting call post. It most certainly keeps me abreast to all things Theatre.
Playbill.com is my other go to when it comes to knowing wuz up in the theatre world. New York City is the “central hub” of theatre in the USA and so it’s great to read the content on Playbill’s site because they always keep you informed of the New York Scene. More specially there’s a blog within the sight that I quite enjoy. ONSTAGE & BACKSTAGE is a blog by a Seth Rudeksky who is a musician, actor, writer, radio host, and broadway personality. I enjoy this blog because Seth shows another side of the theatre business that most do not get to see; Actors off the stage.
The Style Blogger is a blog that I happen to stumble upon a few years ago by chance. Once while reading Esquire Magazine there was a “Best dressed Man in America” article that showcased a few “everyday” guys who were deemed “best dressed”in the Country. Being featured in that article is what sparked the creator of The Style Blogger to start a blogging his daily fashion. Now because of this blog, the once Wall Street creator has transitioned into the New York Fashion industry and has his own clothing line. My reasoning for using this blog is it’s unique format. The Style Guide is a unique feature that allows you to find clothing suggestions based off the weather or events that may be attending.
Qui Style in Savannah is the most recent blog that I’ve discovered. I have only been at SCAD for six weeks, and one thing that I have noticed is the various fashion styles of the students here. I am constantly pulling out my iPhone and snapping photos of interesting fashion that I see throughout my day. So I was quite excited when I found that there’s a local blogger who has noticed the same thing. What I like about this blog is it’s simplicity. The blog is very easy to navigate and it’s pretty much just photos that basically explain themselves. Many of the photos in this blog are of people whom I’ve seen before while walking to class….some of them I have class with! Another thing that I like about this blog is that the creator Mangue Banzima is a relocated to Savannah fashion professional from New York City.
These are a few of the blogs the take my interest on a week basis. I think that all of these blogs have a easy navigation layout and do a great job in being precise and unique within their respective fields of interest.
