Isuwannee!


Friend of the blog Jamie Meares is in the NY Times today. Not just a mention, but a quote, a photo, the whole enchilada.

Jamie writes Isuwannee one of my all time favorite blogs. At least it always is until I see yet another one of those "Hey-I-am-going-on-a-vacation" posts, because I swear to god that lucky bitch goes away every other weekend. But I'm not bitter or anything.

You can read the article (about the demise of Domino) HERE.

Domino was in my opinion, a bit of a disappointment.
Too craftsy/cutesy!

Fair enough... but our friend is in the NY Times! We love that part, right?

Kwana said...

I love me some Jamie! That's great. Gotta go say congrats.

And Decorno was mentioned, too.

Ha. For like a nanosecond. :)

I am over 50 and felt exactly like all the comments posted about Domino on the blogs. I read it cover to cover when it came. My neighbor, who is 60, felt the same way. It was about a new generation of style and if you like design it didn't matter what age you we

It definitely gave the impression where "old" media doesn't get "new" media and the future potential for profit, see The Music Industry, et al.

Perhaps too, it's an indicator of the fact that tje middle class demographic doesn't have the profit potential that A.D. apparently does, in regards to the advertising revenues. It is going to be interesting to see whether the publications like A.D. are going to weather the recession.

AD will weather the rough times. It is run like a tight ship.
From what I heard from an insider, some people at Domino (the higher up people) spent money like there was no tomorrow.

I don't know what to say... I am sad all over again. I miss Domino and REALLY hope that another magazine will step up to fill the HUGE void. I'm sad.

isuwannee does more in a single throwaway sentence than most decor bloggers manage in eight paragraphs of earnest blather about Dorothy Draper.

She deserves the attention.

holy eff that was nice. Thanks!

SGM said...

I agree with anon. She packs so much into one sentence. Love her.

Decorno, you are being too modest about your mention in the NYT. Face the facts: you are a big hitter.

Decorno is the Norman Mailer of decor blogging.

hello gorgeous said...

Oh, Decorno is the biggest.

I have had almost 10,000 page views on my blog this week as a result of her links to it.

10,000!!!

Criminy.

As I said in my comment on the next post, you have GOT to figure out how to bottle this.

Or maybe you already have. :-)

Congrats to isuwannee, too.
