The Cut

The Cut is a fashion blog, sort of. Other fashion blogs I have seen take pictures of real people with outstanding taste or original takes on various trends and show them to the world. This blog just tells about various topics in fashion. It's not really helping anyone, unless people are really in desperate need of knowing such things as "Jennifer Anniston to Sell Perfume By Sitting on a Rock Naked and Alone." or "La Roux's Elly Jackson Is 'Pretty Ready to Get Rid of the Hair.'" People love to comment and give their input on Elly Jackson's hair and style choices and others say, "Yeah, I'm not digging this ad." I guess people really do just need an outlet for their overflowing opinions, and this is a great place to get it out, even if you don't know anything about fashion.

Olson Advertising

I was recently thinking about future careers I might want to get into and heard about Olson Advertising in my journalism class. I visited their website to see if there were any internships posted. Not only do newspapers and everyday people have blogs available for comment, companies do too.

There are posts from the CEO, discussing the company's approach to advertising and there are also entries showing off the latest ads created by the company. Comments are able to be posted to give feedback on ads or discuss different things covered in the blogs, but I don't see many comments actually being posted on the blogs.

I think it is very interesting that pretty much every website now, whether it be for businesses, random discussion, tv channels, or newspapers, has room for comments to be posted. This probably draws in readers and viewers because people love to give their opinions on different topics and show that they are participating in something beyond themselves and their lives.

Now hopefully I can find an internship.

MinnPost

Minnpost.com

This web-based newspaper gives lots of insight on a variety of issues. It covers local news, national and world news, politics, health, sports, arts, business. I'm pretty sure anyone could find something of interest and relevance to their life on this website. A bonus of using this website is readers will know they are getting credible information. The writers on this site are not just people making up their own content to get their voice out there, they are trained, experienced journalists who pride themselves in digging up and giving readers the facts. Comments can be posted by readers who want to thank writers for covering a topic or just to discuss the issues covered in the article. This gives people a way to expand their understanding of the article and also give other readers something more to think about long after they've read the article.
