    Matt Rosenberg of the Public Data Ferret blogs about another example of emerging media in Greater Seattle.

    MOVE — Mapping Our Voices for Equality — is a government-funded effort to enable people to tell their stories about healthy living. It is another example of providing a journalistic service outside the context of traditional journalistic organizations. MOVE helps people tell their own stories, in their own voices.

    The Seattle Journalism Commons includes a list of noteworthy local blogs and news sites that are redefining news and information in the Greater Seattle area. Pacific Northwest Magazine highlights a category not yet on the list — fashion bloggers.

    The delightful article by Janet I. Tu, with stylish photos by Ellen M. Banner, says style bloggers are making their mark nationally. “In Seattle, too — not exactly known as fashion central, though it’s probably fairer to say we’re practical even when fashion-conscious — style bloggers are making their presence felt,” the story says.

    In addition to featuring several local bloggers, the article includes a list of style blogs  from around here:

    YouLookFab

    It’s My Darlin’

    Seattle a la Mode

    The Emerald Closet

    Lindsay Living

    Bora Bora Style

    Hey Pretty Thing

    Abiola (pronounce Ah-bee-aw-la), creator of Bora Bora Style, posted a note about the magazine article on her site. She says:

    “It’s jarring and somewhat liberating how much weight style bloggers hold in the world of fashion today, but why shouldn’t we, we’re someone to know! Fashion gives us the good stuff, the wearable art we’re inspired by, but it’s when you take that wearable art and make it your own that it becomes style, and that’s what we all want to see – ‘style on a girl like me'(as in all of us women occupying this earth), hints the birth of bloggers. Gotta love us.”

    Whether you are interested in fashion or not, this magazine piece reveals yet another aspect of Seattle’s vibrant emerging media scene. Let us know these entrepreneurs talk about how they are doing and what others can learn from their endeavors.

    Let us know if you’d like to attend a discussion with these entrepreneurs of how they are doing and what advice they can offer.
