Talkin’ ’bout A Revolution

Hi everyone – join me at Evolving Influence/IFB Conference on Feb. 10th and at the Blog Lovin’ Awards on Feb. 13th! I’ll be moderating the first panel of the day at the conference and hanging with friends at the awards show. Here’s more…
As some of you may know, I’ve been shooting street style and posting the photos online since 2005. At first, I was just sharing the photos with friends and a few people in the industry – I still made most of my money DJing runway shows and various parties. Since mid-2007 however, style blogging has been my full-time job. (Prior to launching Mr. Newton in the late summer of 2009, I was the photographer and blogger at Stylesightings.) During this time, I’ve watched fashion blogging grow from a cute-n-precocious child (who people got a kick out of, but didn’t really take seriously) up into a are-you-available-on-Wednesday-for-a-meeting young adult. Because no one enjoys bloggin’ for a livin’ more than me, no one is happier than me about this transformation from cute hobby to “I think I need to get an agent/intern”.
All of which is really just a ’round about way of saying, “Wow fashion blogging! It’s pretty cool, huh?” Now it’s even got its own industry conference AND awards show! (Well, the industry conference has been going on for a few seasons now – but the awards show is brand-new.) I’m super excited for both Evolving Influence – aka the Independent Fashion Blogger Conference – and for the Blog Lovin’ Awards. They’re both being held in New York (of course) during NYFW. How about you?? Do you have your ticket yet for the IFB conference? Or are you watching it via live stream? Have you cast your votes yet for the awards?? Better get on it – this revolution is not going to wait! xx Mr. Newton
