Style TALK: M on the Bund

I have always been of the opinion that when someone gets you a diary for Christmas it’s them subtlety telling you that they don’t really like you that much, and couldn’t be bothered to think of decent gift for you.

So I was surprised when the guys who write the print magazine featured a diary in the ‘Hot and Cool’ section. To me this sounded like laziness on their part. But I’m happy to admit that I was wrong. The diary in question is the one from M on the Bund, and as far as diaries go this is pretty much the coolest thing I’ve ever seen.

The thing is amazing. From CD’s, pop-up pages, parlour games, and informative blurbs, the diary has everything you would expect from a diary but can also hold you attention like any good coffee table book does. I’ve already got my copy and couldn’t be happier. I literally spent almost an hour this morning flicking through it, while I should have been working. They have even included a couple of free gifts.

Price: RMB 198. Available at the M on the Bund and Chaterhouse Books. Web:

Um ok

That would or might be valid except that in general cannibalizing your own editorial isn't done by a magazine's blog. Also the link for the story is on the sidebar and all the stories are put online...

It is true that all the

It is true that all the content is put online. However as I said before many people who read the website don’t read every article from the magazine. I’m not really sure what the problem is. however, i do like it when readers offer constructive advice on how to improve the blog. the blog served to offer more coverage for something that i thought was legitimately cool and people might be interested in regardless of whether it was featured in the magazine.

How does this qualify as a blog post? Paying a backhand compliment to your coworkers and then writing about something that was written about in the print edition?

Maybe you should stop being lazy and generate your own content.

Im sorry you felt it was a lazy post. but not everyone who reads the website reads the print edition too. and i felt that the diary was cool enough to merit a blog post too. thans for readign and i hope you find future posts more in keeping with your interests.
