But the whole point about her blog is that everybody is talking about it, for good or for bad. Everybody was talking about it before it launched, during and after.

^ that is true. but as far as we know ''everybody'' is just everybody here, because we knew about it before it was launched. but to GAIN readers some big changes will need to be made.

"Her" blog could be anyone else's, the problem with it that Olivia is missing from it.

That was better than her previous post because it was less pretentious and seemed less overly thought about. She was, however, lacking in good punctuation and tends to overuse the words 'peppered' and 'smattering'.

God, that sounded like a school report

The "Stepping into Spring" post was much better than her first posts, and much more on par with what I was expecting from her blog: a discussion of collections with a little bit of lifestyle and styling. There is still an air of pretension, especially towards the end of the post. But still, much improved.

It was much better written, I agree, the grammar has left a lot be be desired but the "It also gave me the opportunity to visit friends and help them prepare for their spring 2012 shows." Really? Oh please. I like the girls style, but I'd really rather have it without the great big dollop of self-importance please.

it got my attention that after her very first post, all you see when you scroll down is thousands of fb messages saying how great the blog is and that they're all looking forward to read upcoming posts.... and here in tfs, we all dislike it! how come?

It was disappointing for me too, english isnt my mother language so i probably dont notice as many spelling mistakes as you guys, but definitely thats bad image for her... and judging the whole design and look of the blog itself, it definitely doesn't look like you have a whole team working for/with you. Thousands blogs out there are better than hers and 20-something bloggers don't have any help, so im definitely waiting for some improvements.

Disagree. The problem is the blog lacks ANY personality at all .

I guess that that's happening because on this site we're supposed to be a little bit more knowledgeable or at least just more into fashion overall than maybe a lot of those people that post on her blog, therefore we are a lot more demanding.

^^^^^^
I agree that we're just a more discerning audience than a collection of random fangirls on Facebook. Not to mention that Olivia's people or Olivia herself no doubt delete any negative comments on FB whereas they can't do that here.

I actually think the blog is an embarrassment to Olivia.
