Giant fountain Diet Cokes in hand, contraband candy stowed in our handbags, we settled into the theater and let ourselves be swept away in this post-apocalyptic world where children are forced to fight to the death. Now, I'm no movie critic, and this is certainly not a forum to gush over Liam Hemsworth and give away a bunch of spoilers, so don't worry. We're thinking about blogger cornucopias and rising above the competition!
Here's our thoughts on The Hunger Games, as it relates to fashion, blogging & whatever else is on our minds at the moment…
After seeing The Hunger Games, I started to think about what it would be like if every year, 23 fashion bloggers were brought to The Capitol (New York City, probably) to battle to the last. What kind of games would we have? Would it all end in an outfit pose-off? A tweet-to-the-death battle? I also loved that Elizabeth Banks' character, years and years in the future, is wearing spring 2012's on-trend florals and a peplum skirt. In our games I think she'd say something like, “May the wireless connection be ever in your favor.” – Taylor
The Hunger Games is all about anticipating your competitors next moves and staying on top of your game. In the land of blogging, you may not be fighting to the death but you are going head-to-head in terms of readers and hits. If “the Hunger Games” can impart some kind of wisdom (besides stay away from weird berries and land mines), its that being aware of your competitors moves will keep you one step ahead of the flock! Monitor your favorite blogs by looking at which posts get the most comments, which pictures get the best response, etc. Think of it as a mini case study for your own blog! – Amanda
I can't stop imagining what a blogger Hunger Games would be like. The cornucopia would be full of spare batteries, wireless routers, DSLRs and the highly coveted iPhone charger… Would you run into get them if you we risking death by power-cord strangulation? What basics would you need to survive as a blogger in the wild? – Crissie
