With the rise of sharing platforms like Pinterest and Polyvore, consumers are no longer just following trends, they're influencing them. Not only has the internet provided people with the power to create and share inspiration boards, but platforms like Kickstarter and Etsy have empowered them to drum up support to actually make their design ambitions a reality.
Design and craft bloggers are imperative to curate the chaos caused by this industry revolution and new source of information overload, and they dictate the design trends of tomorrow. As bloggers expose consumers to the best new design tools, tips, and available funding sources, they empower consumers to create their own goods, while simultaneously helping those consumers rise to fame by promoting the next big (consumer created!) thing.
Join Blogads and friends as they discuss the future by exploring how these influentials are able to find what's cool in this explosion of consumer generated content.
Launched in 2002, Blogads connects blue-chip advertisers with passionate publishers.
Our crew hails from a variety of backgrounds, including a radio station manager, doggie spa owner, TV producer, biologist and Wall Street titan. We're based in Durham, North Carolina, one of the smartest, brainiest and most tolerant cities in the US (says Daily Beast). For programming and design, we draw on the brilliance of programming and design colleagues in Budapest, Hungary.
