In another article about how fashion bloggers are using their Movable Type accounts to further their careers, we learn that local blogger Cheap Jap may be getting her own reality TV show. "The show will mirror her site's philosophy, teaching girls used to living off their parents' credit cards to shop creatively at thrift stores.
