So you want to become a fashion blogger huh?
Well here is my how to guide on how to get started.
First thing’s first, what is your drive?
This is going to be at the core of your blog, your motivation to keep going and your vision for the future. So think about it and then think a little harder again.
Mine is to grow my experience as a writer to one day work professionally and gain and understanding behind running a site.
This next point I know you know. FIND YOUR COMMUNITY – for more on this read my ‘Finding your blogging community’ article. You need to understand and produce for your audience and their needs. If 90% of your viewership lives in the UK, when a major event relating to the UK comes up, be sure to write about it.
Have an understanding of SEO and other techy things. Now yes, it’s a pain and takes time but there is no way your going to grow a community without understanding the importance of this. So, get googling and watching those YouTube videos.
Photos, photos and more photos. Get an understanding of aesthetics and how to enhance them. Look up some blogs and get inspo from them, see what’s working and what’s not ans build from there. As much as I love reading, blogs are a place to write but do require visual aids. Imagine reading about ‘New York Fashion Week’ and seeing no photos – that level of creativity is hard to visualise alone.
Lastly, to become a fashion blogger be sure to comment opinions on upcoming trends, fashion shows, celebrity Collab’s and share on ALL platforms of media in particular the hidden gem ‘Pinterest.’
