Barry's Blog   

By Kevin Rector
     


Dave Barry doesn't think of himself as a "pure blogger," but he's been using the medium to interact with his fans ever since he retired from the Miami Herald in 2003.

The former syndicated humor columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner says he liked the idea of having a blog because he's "always thought the Internet is where we're going."

A year after he launched his blog, editors at the Miami Herald were having the same thought. They were looking for ways to increase traffic on the paper's Web site (www.miamiherald.com), Barry says, so he offered them his blog.

At first, there was confusion. "The Herald didn't have any blogs or know what blogs were when I approached them about putting it onto their site. They didn't really know what I was asking. They had to look into it," Barry says. "It was pretty funny. I think they thought I was trying to put something over on them."

But Barry, now 60, says he knew his blog was something the Herald, where he worked for 20 years, could use. "They were trying to get their site going, and I said, 'Well, my blog gets hits if you want to put it on there.' "

The editors agreed, and Barry's blog, which consists mostly of funny headlines slapped on top of links to other stories, was transformed in March 2004 from davebarry.blogspot.com to blogs.herald.com/dave_barrys_blog/.

Today, the famous funnyman's blog is one of the Herald's most popular, a reality that seems only fitting.

After all, it was Barry's personal blog that started the Herald's foray into blogging an endeavor that now includes more than 30 editor-checked blogs responsible for attracting 1.5 million hits to the Herald site in March.

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
