MOBILE MAVENS: MAKING SAVVY AND STYLISH CHOICES TO IMPROVE OUR BLOGS
Edited by Maggie Battles
Trends and technology move at a rapid speed these days and along with that comes unlimited choices. We can choose from a variety of blogging platforms, we can shoot from any number of cameras and shop from any number of online boutiques. There’s so many styles and options to choose from in fashion and technology that we’re constantly evolving our taste to match each moment in time. This weeks Links has a collection of examples on how to take your blog to the next level. The following are a group of links with helpful advice on everything from how to work with PR people, to switching to a new blogging platform and to navigating user-generated fashion on the web. I trust that many of these links will prove to be very useful to all of you. Happy posting!

FOR THE LOVE OF THE FASHIONABLE TECH’IES
Edited by Joanne Faith
I am very appreciative of each and every fashion blogger who has written on the subject of blogging and technology. Each and every article helps to further inform and empower, enabling bloggers to upskill and better their craft. Blogging can get pretty technical, and even if your blogging platform is relatively easy to use there are so many surrounding factors (e.g. Twitter, Photo Shop, Mobile). In fact, I imagine very few fashion bloggers aren’t tech savvy. So, please keep writing tech ladies (and gentlemen), because we are all reading it up!

TIME TO THINK MOBILE
Edited by Vyque of Fasshonaburu
Anyone else feel like their lives have begun to revolve more and more around mobile technology? While I still can’t travel without my netbook, I can’t go even an hour without at least one of my smartphones within arm’s reach! So it didn’t surprise me when I read Miss Viki’s post on the prediction that “by 2013, mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most common Web access device worldwide.”
As a full-time new media professional, I had heard this before, but I hadn’t really considered how this would affect my blogging. Until I started using the iPad, I never once checked how my site rendered outside a computer or considered blogging from my phone! But as more and more users start accessing content while on the go, it’s important to remember to think mobile!!
