I don’t want this to become one of those blogs that contain more excuses for absence than actual posts, but I do feel like I need to give a small recap of the last 2 months before randomly launching an article online.
…Which I hope means I can pull myself together to write something more often. I already have a few articles planned that I’d love to publish, but I also need to get a bit sharper in spotting interesting conversation pieces to write about. In the meantime, I hope you’re all having a great summer! I definitely am and wanted to let you guys know that I’m still around, lol. Expect a new post up soon!
I’m on twitter now, find me @rbgblog! I’ll be posting my articles (obvs) but I’ll also be retweeting a lot of other interesting stuff and giving more bite-sized opinions on things 🙂
It’s that time of the year again! Or rather, a day later, but bear with me. And there’s no wrong day to celebrate women, of course.
After using a standard WP header for a while, I figured it was time to upload something original. I´ve been trying out different gradients in the background for a while and I think this is it, although I need to get used to the difference between this color scheme and the previous one. Finding a good vibe for your site is hard!
So, let’s jump straight into this article: in case you didn’t hear, ‘influencer’ is what we now call people with a lot of followers on social media, and that, being as popular as they are, are often paid to advertise certain products. These people are mostly beauty/fashion/health bloggers, but also people that just record vlogs of their daily lives. Some claim they are the future; others are more cynical. What’s up with those people?
You know what’s annoying? When you’re watching something on TV and whoever is in the room with you can’t stop commenting about how it’s stupid and doesn’t make sense. Aside from “Shh, that’s why it’s called fantasy” you will likely reply something along the lines of “Please, just let me enjoy this”, and rightfully so. But recently, things that seemed innocuous are becoming more and more political. Or really, they were political all along, but people have been picking up and commenting on that more and more.
To be honest, I hate having to write my second post about such a sad event, but if I want to have a feminist blog, I can´t let this go by. This won´t be a very long article, though, as I am not quite sure what to say.
Hello all, and welcome to Rejected Bond Girls! This site will have little to do with James Bond, but quite a lot with pop culture and feminism. I hope to see you around!
