Emily Brill Does Obligatory Post-Profile Damage ControlSocialite-blogger and publishing heiress Emily Brill was profiled in Page Six Magazine this Sunday as a high-society "outcast" whose uptown and Hamptons-centric blogging project has irritated the status quo, alienating her from other socials. "I hope people don't think [my blog] is an attempt to draw attention to myself," she told the magazine. Now that the article's out, she's posted a point-by-point rebuttal on her blog, acting as if she's a public figure with a reputation to defend. No matter how shamelessly they court attention, people generally don't like being written about or profiled, because they can't control the outcome.The post-profile response in the 2.0 world is to huff and sigh—on your blog—about how you were misquoted, taken out of context, or maybe get all upset about your photoshoot. Exhibit 1:
NY Post: Anonymous says, "She's always on her BlackBerry blogging, even at a sit-down dinner."

Fact: At 25 I don't go to too many sit-down dinners. And even a cursory look through my blog (with the exception of fashion week) would show I don't blog too much at night. If you see me on my blackberry after dark, I'm probably doing what any other flesh and blood twenty-something does with her blackberry: texting or bbming. Jeez.
There is more of this! And it is fascinating. There is one factual error in the article that Brill does not dispute, so we'll do it for her: Emily, your blog so does not get 72,000 hits a day! (Unless you're counting them the old-fashioned way, and who does that?) She also has a problem with anonymous quotes attacking her: "I will never use an anonymous quote that's critical of someone without first calling for a response." (Looks like I'm in the clear—I went on the record with my bitchy quote!) [Essentially Emily] The Modern-Day Tale of a Society Outcast [Page Six Magazine]
