There are millions of bloggers out there who blog every single day, many of them multiple times a day and we don't do it because we have been told to, we do it because we want to. No one pays me to sit on my sorry arse all day just to write something about them on my blog, I only write what I feel deserves to be written about on my blog. Countless emails from PR's every single day but I choose what I want to mention because this is MY personal space and in MY own time. My writing style is probably very different to a lot of blogs out there because I do not draft a copy before I post. It's very no holds barred and I write exactly what I am thinking in that precise moment just as I would be talking to somebody face to face. It may make people laugh, or it even may offend certain people, but this is me. There are no barriers with Ozzy, I write my own and honest opinion.
During LFW, I felt a backlash against bloggers. It wasn't only me but many other blogger friends of mine have felt this way and we have discussed it countless amount of times that journalists often look down upon us. At one show that I was invited to, I was seated front row next to a journalist, "What is it that you do?" She asked. I replied very politely saying "My name's Ozzy and I have a fashion blog called We Scream Style". She had then flipped out asking the PR why I was seated front row and that if he could possibly move me, the PR saved my arse and replied, "Well if there is a problem I can move you instead." Even when the bloggers would to go to the press lounge within Somerset House we were given some nasty looks, looks of disapproval, looks of disgust, like we were nothing.
I appreciate some journo's out there have worked all their lives and many of them have qualified as journalists with degree's and all of a sudden students who blog are getting as much recognition as they are. But all I wanted to say to those journo's who look down on us for no reason is... FUCK YOU. There are tons of journalists out there who j'adore blogs and bloggers and recognise the importance of bloggers within todays society but for all of you evil, nasty, low life, self loathing, obese piece of scum journalists who look down on bloggers I only have one thing to say to you.... GET YOUR UGLY HEADS OUT OF YOUR ARSES AND LOOK WHERE YOUR GOING BECAUSE US BLOGGERS ARE HERE TO STAY AND WE WILL MILK EVERY LITTLE RECOGNITION WE GET BECAUSE WE DESERVE EVERY LITTLE OUNCE OF IT!
Rant Over! :) x
