Ten years ago, Bryan Grey Yambao, sitting at his computer at home in Manila, wouldn't have appeared much different from the scores of young bloggers trying to attract readers in Lebanon.Today, Yambao is better known by his pen name, Bryanboy, the title of his star fashion blog. The blog, now operated by Conde Nast, has earned him such accolades as one of the nine "hottest celebs on the Web" by The New York Post. Between a one-on-one chat with The Daily Star and his public talk, Bryanboy offered a smattering of advice, mostly inadvertent, for bloggers hoping to reach his level of fame – and notoriety.That lifestyle blog took on a fashion bent, as that's where Bryanboy's own interests lay.Standing out as a blogger has become even harder as millions of social media users vie for "followers" on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.The role of bloggers these days is a bit like the role that magazines played in Bryanboy's childhood. As a young boy, he used to read his mother's fashion magazines, ones such as i-D and The Face, which offered an escape from reality.
