From the Desk of Roséline | Editor’s Letter Autumn 2017

by

A few of our colleagues in the Blogger OG celebrated their 10-year anniversaries this past July, which means that it was also our anniversary here at TIG. It’s a bit insane to think that it has already been a full ten years since I hit publish on that first post on the Blogger platform, and yet, at the same time, it doesn’t feel like it has been all that long at all, if that makes any sense.

So much has happened over these past ten years. Some in their celebratory Editors’ Letters spoke about how much the blogging scene has changed since then, about how we were a tiny, tight-knit group who knew each other by name and were supportive and sharing in our comments and with our link-building. Some sounded rather wistful at all that has changed.

In 2007, Facebook was only three years old (2004). There was no Twitter (2006), no Pinterest (2009-11). And definitely no Instagram (2010), the latter of which seems to threaten to overtake nearly everything else. Things were much simpler when we would publish things that caught our fancy in real time and whenever the mood struck. Fast forward to 2017, and blogging has become a business, and not only that, but “influencers” who do not even have blogs, solely an Instagram page, can still wield a considerable amount of power.

Of course, those of us who have been around long enough will have seen trends like these come and go, and know that the one constant through all these emerging and fast-changing and (some) nearly obsolete forms of media. That one constant (in all this time) is what we have here, at This Is Glamorous, a website that has grown from a blog into a beautiful online magazine, and furthermore, a community of intelligent, sophisticated readers who still believe in this world.

And for this reason, we will always keep our focus not on trendy new media apps, but on building this beautiful community by contributing new and exciting content that sometimes challenges our readers, always captivates and excites, and most of all, makes you dream.

xo,


(Below are a few things that have been happening around here over the past few months.)

Paris by Daniela; follow along at @dana_chels

In July we welcomed a new Travel Editor, Daniela Chelariu. Based in Paris, Daniela writes about the hotels you should stay at places around the world, museum & gallery exhibitions not to be missed, and even her favourite restaurants in Paris. She’ll also include the occasional book recommendation in her collection of articles for good measure as well. You can read all the work she’s done for us so far here. We’re wildly delighted to have her and her beautiful take on the world.

    Dear Roseline, TIG has been a touchstone resource for me for several years. Whenever I worry about what is happening in the world, I come here to be reminded of beauty, of comfort and of love. The creative efforts of you and your team in sourcing and curating such uplifting and inspiring content are reassuring; your readers are reminded that there is more that is intelligent, adventurous and cared about in our (sometimes) crazy world. Congratulations on 10 years! Here’s to the next 10.
