New York, NY (PRWEB) December 3, 2004
Today Weblogs, Inc. (http://www.weblogsinc.com), the largest publisher of professional blogs, announced the launch of their 62nd WeblogÂLuxist (http://www.luxist.com), a blog based on fine living and luxury items.
ÂIÂm addicted to magazines like the Robb Report, Cigar Aficionado, Wine Spectator and Conde Nast Traveler, and IÂd prefer them in a blog format, so we launched our own spin on the luxury space,Â explains Weblogs, Inc. co-founder Jason McCabe Calacanis.
According to Calacanis, the blog will focus on categories such as high-performance cars, writing instruments, timepieces, spirits, luxury travel and destinations, wines and spirits, cigars, handbags, apparel, yachts, planes, and collectibles.
Brands featured on the blog include Maybach, Baccarat, Gucci, Hermes, Jetshare, Rolex, the Four Seasons resorts, Mont Blanc, Cartier, Chanel, Burberry, Bvlgari, Vertu, Rolls Royce, Cristal, Hennessey, Grey Goose, Montecristo, Cohiba, Versace and LVMH.
Luxist is launching with two fully refined bloggers. Deidre Woollard, who grew up on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, and worked on the advertising and production end of a number of national magazines before deciding to go back to school and finish up her degree at Harvard University Extension School, has also written for several websites including Elites TV, Black Table and Posh City. DeidreÂs philosophy regarding luxury is, ÂI believe that luxury is not necessarily about what is most expensive but instead is about what is unique or exciting about a product or service.Â
Our second Luxist blogger, Nino Marchetti, spends his waking hours as a full time, freelance journalist writing a variety of stories for the San Mateo Daily Journal and at Weblogs, Inc. as ÂBlogger in ResidenceÂ. Nino has written on food, travel and personal technology, with work having appeared in ComputorEdge, About.com and DesignTechnica.
