  • Bloggers who live in Williamsburg and work at Condé Nast/ are in a band
  • Bloggers who live in Williamsburg and know someone who works at Condé Nast/date someone in a band
  • Bloggers who live elsewhere in Brooklyn but can get to Williamsburg easily, ideally by bicycle
  • Bloggers in general (residents of other parts of the country are fine, so long as those parts are Chicago, L.A., Seattle, or Manhattan)
  • Non-bloggers who work at Condé Nast/are in a band
  • Non-bloggers who went to high school with someone who runs a top-tier blog
  • Non-bloggers who live in Queens and operate barely solvent literary magazines, the literary magazine being, as we all know, the blog of 2000, the old black, so over, etc.
