Thoughts on fashion bloggers

I must confess, my opinion on the subject is veeeery serious.
How do we know a real fashion blogger? There are some pretty simple people out there who simply get a white blog on an easy platform, and start to post pictures every now and then.
Usually pics from catalogues, maybe last season (year?!), podiums if they're lucky. And they post it without any particular order or serious purpose at least. The only reason they do it is because they find the term "fashion blogger" very hip and think what they are doing gives them the right & evidence to go and say - hey, I'm a fashion blogger!
Only they are not.
Take Tavi for example. Only recently she began to add text to her blog, which I look at pretty irregularly as there is loads more interesting (and truly professional) blogs out there. She got popular because she was one of the first ones who took fashion blogging so sreiously - and quickly progressed to a certain wide audience of readers. The designers, knowing this, invite her to their shows, give her gifts and all that in hope of her writing a goooood report on her blog for a few thousands to read. So what happens? Tavi is just a little kid who can't say "no", she doesn't have any qualifications (does she even have secondary education yet?!) and her trying-to-stand-out-of-the-crowd style has gone horribly, horribly
. I am not saying that a person of a young age is forbidden to show talent, but I do not tolerate unprofessionalism. Therefore, Tavi cannot give a professional opinion of ANY of the collections she sees, and neither can she say anything bad about the designer now, for he/she has invited her to the front row. Result? An unobjective opinion and false reports to blog.
The higher the heel, the closer to heaven.
