Are blogs the new fashion magazine?

As magazines began to cut costs and budgets, and some even folded all together,  the number of fashion blogs began to increase. Soon, fashion magazines also tapped into the blogger world by creating their own blogs, frequently publishing articles daily. A large part of the popularity of fashion and personal style blogs is the accessibility to brands most people can afford to purchase versus spreads featured in magazines of looks straight from the runways. 

 

With the popularity and number of fashion blogs continue to increase and sales of fashion magazines continue to decrease, do you think that fashion magazines will eventually be replaced by blogs or eventually feature all of their content online?

I prefer blogs to mags anyday.

Are you kidding??! Blogs like this one are marketing gold for manufacturers especially Dior and diesel which get talked about a lot on this blog. With the opinion of the buying public ready available and posts from real fans of the brands who needs magazines telling us what we should/shouldn't wear anymore?

But you don't think that when bloggers get c/o'd items from retailers, that's influencing the reader what to buy? I think it's similar to magazines, just in different form. Personally, I prefer magazines because at least I know that everything is being sponsored.
