The ways of the past are quickly being left behind for the technology at our fingertips today. The newspaper that we anxiously waited for to be delivered to our front doorstep is all but a distant memory of days gone by.
Comfortably sitting in millions of people’s pocket and purse is a device that has revolutionized every aspect of our lives. Where do we first turn for a news update? Sports score? The latest gossip on social media?
We are in the midst of an instant gratification avalanche. Patience is as rare as goodwill for our elected officials on select 24-7 news channels. So, with this in mind, let’s look at 2 sites that have established themselves as perennial powerhouses in their respective fields. Before this, however, a new blog has arrived for music lovers that bears consideration.
While most of us love to listen to our favorite stars that tour nationally and internationally, there is a segment of us that relishes in the opportunity to take in an independent artist. The atmosphere of a small venue, filled with 50 or so fellow revelers, is intoxicating.
Many of us selfishly hope that our favorite independent artists stay “small sized”. However, we don’t wish them lack of financial success. It’s selfish because we long to hold on to those special nights at the small club with a couple dozen of our fellows. The intimacy of these nights is unforgettable.
For those of us who crave the latest on the independent music and culture scene, a new music blog in 2017 helps satisfy this insatiable craving. Mixed in is a sprinkling of political and societal independent thought, a true smorgasbord for the free soul.
One of the fastest-growing sports digital properties in the United States is Bleacher Report, which is a division of Turner Sports. Often referred to by sports reporters on-air from major networks such as ESPN and Fox Sports, what sets this site apart from others is the quantity and quality of content.
Hundreds of pieces are posted daily covering all the topics and teams that the fans want. How did this come about? Simple. They ask what the fans want, and the team at Bleacher Report responds with the material they seek.
Equally impressive is the real-time experience found here. While this certainly is not the only online avenue to take for sports information, it certainly has earned its reputation.
This category is not limited to the ladies, let’s begin there. Men and women alike can benefit from a timely, well managed, and edited fashion website. Men do, after all, hold many positions in the fashion industry, even in companies that are primarily dedicated to female design.
With a monthly tally of approximately 2.5 million readers, Fashionista is two-fold. First, it carries one of the most influential voices in the fashion media with its large audience. Secondly, with its powerful voice it helps shape the trends to come both from an industry and consumer standpoint.
Readers find everything from fashion career advice, open criticism of trends in the industry, and fashion relevant news.
The music blog and 2 sites featured are mobile compatible. Since we are an instant gratification society nowadays, isn’t that comforting!
