She looks kinda original to me.
I do it, you do it. We all do it... sometimes we do it too much.
I was just visiting another blog and I saw images from a publication I JUST READ. It's one thing when people scan and post old photos from magazines to kind of tie together themes and ideas from different points in time, but totally weird when some people are posting things that just hit the newsstand. I was thinking how bloggers have such a huge opportunity to get to new content first, like when our friend Habitually Chic had a pretty fantastic behind-the-scenes look at the recent H & G spread on G Paltrow.
BUT, with Habitually Chic excepted, since she attacked it with a totally different & unique angle, I think some of us need to reevaluate how much we are using our blog to react to what was *just* published. Scanning it and posting it and rehashing it isn't the point, right? Blogs actually have a chance to publish a new idea faster than those dinosaurs who go to print only 12 times a year, so why don't we take advantage of this?
So... who is with me? I officially declare next week (starting Monday) as design blog "Original Content Week."
This means, no magazine scans... and if you borrow photos from the web, you need to be making a new point about something. And... for the love of god... no images from dominomag.com. (I am guilty, too, so don't worry, I scold myself at the same time I scold you, fellow decorno blogger..)
