Here is part of the article:
"...the buzziest news of the week was our nomination for a prestigious Webby Award in the business blog category, alongside globally recognised digital heavyweights Mashable, Business Insider, The Atlantic Business and All Things Digital. According to our internal statistics, more than 2500 of you clicked on bit.ly.com/VoteBoF to show your support in the public vote, helping us surge into second place position with 33 percent of the vote, just behind Mashable, a site that gets 20 million unique visitors per month. In recent days, we have maintained our second place position, but our share of overall votes has dropped back a bit to 23 percent. In order to help us win what is truly a ‘David and Goliath’ battle of the business blogs, please click and vote to show that the fashion industry means business. It takes 2 minutes and with your support we can win this thing! Elsewhere this week, we published a story on Maiyet, a brand which, in only 18 months, has managed to beautifully fuse a distinct luxury sensibility with ethical credentials. It remains to be seen whether the business can be scaled, however. As Polly pointed out in the comments on the piece, not every brand needs to grow into a behemoth, but healthy businesses do need to expand. At BoF, we’re very interested to see where this one goes."
