Additionally, in my blog posts, I played with methods used by real fashion bloggers - such as:
taking pictures of myself in the outfits
detailed notation of garments and sources (see any post after 4/11)
soliciting guest posts (not yet realized)
In the course of my activities, I became a fashion blogger too! I joined an online Fashion blog group - Independent Fashion Bloggers, discovered countless blogs to follow and had great fun.
Giving myself permission to illustrate "whatever" rekindled my joy in fashion designing, a joy lost during several years of design drudgery at jobs.
For fake journaling, I've found what works best for me is sticking fairly close to reality - SpyGirl is me, with benefits. My first fake journal in 2009 (a Leonard Cohen groupie) was too far off and too difficult to maintain. I'm curious to see what transpires in 2012, seeing that SpyGirl will remain an active fashion blogger.
