Did you know that the Financial Times has a special section from time to time called “Watches & Jewelry?” I didn’t either until recently. How neat is that?
A recent Financial Times article discussing the power of blog in the watch industry featured myself (Ariel Adams) and aBlogtoRead.com. While brief, the article mentions the immense influence blogs have over the watch industry as well as the people who buy watches. It also remarks on how the watch industry doesn’t always know how to deal with blogs like aBlogtoRead.com, as what I (and the few others like me) do is often quite different from the traditional watch media.
Nevertheless, the Financial Times suggests that sites like aBlogtoRead.com command a readership and awareness that watch companies realize is something that have to adapt to. Many thanks to reporter Simon de Burton who covered the story. I am honored to be recognized by the Financial Times and featured in their fine publication. Also thanks to my readers who make this all possible. See the story here.
