Findlay, R. Forthcoming (late 2016). Book on Personal Style Blogging. Intellect UK.

This book, a development of my doctoral research, focuses on the practice of personal style blogging, a sub-genre of the fashion blogosphere. It implements a cross-disciplinary approach to consider what the practice means for style bloggers and their readers, and what impact style blogging is having on wider notions of the digital performance of self, the performativity of identity through clothing, the private in public, girls' writing and fashion communication.
