Blake Lively (aka starring in Gossip Girl) has always been one of those celebs I never felt strongly about one way or another. My feelings for her have generally been positive, she’s been pretty smart about choosing her projects, but yeah. Just never felt super strongly about her. Now, she’s decided to try her hand at her own lifestyle site, Preserve. Here’s an excerpt from her letter from the editor:
I’m comfortable with the knowledge that I’m not a teacher, but rather, a student. I don’t do any one thing perfectly. I do a lot of things though. Some well, some not-so-well. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel. I’ve been all over the world and all over this country. There’s so much life teeming out of every pocket of this nation. There are people creating magic with their bare hands. Creating things which land at that amazing intersection between art and function. I’ve found that when approached with a curious spirit, people are kind, they’re generous, they answer, if asked. They’ll often open their doors and hearts and let you in. Because people with wisdom have stories to tell, and want them heard. Everyone has a story to tell. This idea is the cornerstone of Preserve.
Well, credit where credit is due: She understands her own limitations (to a certain extent) and has no problem talking about them. So if that’s the case, start a blog. But come on, a lifestyle site? Really? This is a general message for celebrities out there, but when your standard of living is drastically higher than that of the average person, you have to bear in mind that a lifestyle site might be just a little outside of reality.
