Life Advice For 'Portfolio' Fashion Blogger Lauren Goldstein Crowe

Portfolio magazine's fashion blogger Lauren Goldstein Crowe is in New York, no doubt visiting with the people who hired her, which may be why her blog posts are suddenly really long. (But still bad!) Crowe's most recent nugget details how, after attempting to incite a backlash-to-the-backlash against the new Tom Ford store from across the Atlantic, she actually visited the store in New York and hated it (denied entrance to the velvet rope area — hmmmph!). Lauren, two biiig rules of blogging you should know, from people with almost as little blogtime under their belts as you:

1. Hate everything, and
2. Hate yourself.

We dunno if you're a religious type, but there's an easy way to remember this if you've read that part in the Bible where Jesus boils down the 10 Commandments into two easy ones. Only where He says "love", substitute "hate," so it's more like:

1. Hate Yourself above all those things.
2. Hate (the thing you are blogging about) As You Hated All Other Things (you hated before) The first part is really important for when you make really, really dumb mistakes borne of arrogance, like that time we fucked up your name and even had our intern PHOTOSHOP AN ENTIRE GRAPHIC INCORPORATING THE FUCKUP. And look, we hate ourselves so much we're linking to it! How easy was that?

Moe, for the record, I like your posts. And I don't like the shit going down in that post.

If people don't like reading your work, fine. They don't have to. But to broadcast their boycotts and start bashing you on a linked website is pretty shitty, in my opinion.

I don't always agree with you, but I appreciate that you are willing to say what you think, even if you know that the majority of readers might not feel the same way. Every voice on this site is important and I think people who don't see that are really missing out.

If you don't like Moe's posts, fine. But bring a balanced argument to the post, instead of just bashing the writer.

Also: I'm on Concerta 27mg every day, too. So fuck it. ADD+ Uppers FTW.
