By it, I’m referring to his blog which he manages to update an average of 15 times a day despite a hectic schedule. New York Magazine’s Vulture had the same burning question so they asked Kanye. Damnit. I should have thought of that. Here’s what Mr. Caps Lock had to say:
“It might [blog for] two hours in a day, it might be fifteen minutes in a day. I have two people that I hired and I tell them exactly what I want — it’s just like how a designer would work. I tell them, you know, Surface magazine, Wallpaper, Architectural Digest, Hypebeast, Bossip — go to these different blogs and keep on pulling information. And then they send it to me, and I get like 80 e-mails, and I have to check and go through them. And sometimes I’ll have my own stuff where I’ll just be in a cool place, like if I had my camera right now, I’d like photograph this stuff and go home and be really excited to blog it. You know, cause I’m in cool places all the time. So it’s a great outlet, and I’m glad so many people are reacting to it. And it’s another opportunity to present design and my opinion of the world and what I think is cool.”
In short, if you want to be as prolific a blogger as Kanye, you just have to have two assistants and be able to travel the world. Simple, really. I don’t see why you’re not doing it yourself. Look at you just sitting there typing those reports. You’re not even indiscriminately using the caps lock key. Kanye would disapprove.
