SPEAKING HER MIND: Self editor Lucy Danziger has taken well to blogging — and perhaps to its blunter tone as well. At a recent breakfast for the magazine’s Healthy Beauty Awards, she told the audience of beauty executives that her Yahoo-syndicated blog is “taking in numbers that make people at Condé Nast jealous. Don’t tell my fellow editors in chief! But they don’t blog anyway, so what the heck.” Those numbers, according to Danziger, included 10.8 million page views in March. She then pulled out a camera and snapped a shot of the crowd for her blog.
Danziger also pointed out Kathy Leutner — a model the magazine frequently shoots — as an exemplar of the Self reader. Leutner recently graduated with a degree in communications. “Sit down; eat your breakfast,” Danziger urged Leutner after introducing her to the crowd. “Healthy girls eat. Self models eat.”
The awards honored 86 products, voted on by a panel of 1,370 readers.
