Women like fashion. Women like style. So what's all this fuss in the blogosphere about a wee article covering the BlogHer conference, Blogging's Glass Ceiling, in The New York Times? Sounds like The NYT is trying to break some stereotypes here, reporting this huge festival of women bloggers...or is it?
BlogHer features over 10,000 blogs covering a long list of topics, see the full blogroll, from health and food to politics, green issues and technology. So why does the article feature in 'The Fashion and Style' section of the paper?
It originally appeared on The BrandBox blog. It's writer Amber Naslund, wrote a letter to the NYT editor:
I'm so disappointed that you managed to completely undermine the professional, hardworking group at BlogHer by parking that article on your "Fashion & Style" page. Why not Business? Technology? These women are changing the face of technology and the online world, and you're parking them off in a trivial corner instead of among the gamechanging minds of Web 2.0 where they belong.
