Let’s all get real. Blogging has started to become a big part of everyone’s lives – it’s not just a place so a blogger can speak his or her mind about anything in his or her life anymore, like how it used to be back in the days. Most bloggers earn from their blogs and get stable income in it as well. If you are planning to start blogging or don’t have any idea about blogging at all, one thing you should know is that there are different types of blogger that focuses on a certain type of niche. There are lifestyle bloggers, technology bloggers, travel bloggers and one of the most in demand one are the beauty and fashion bloggers.
It really depends on their niche. You would even find bloggers who only talks about their daily lives, blogs about being a mom and about their family life, those who post about food and recipes, or book reviews. It varies, depending on their interests and niche to focus. Anyone can be a blogger but to be a successful one – you need to have passion, commitment and dedication for it. You need to be proud of what you do and be happy about it. It would be wise to not forget that people who read your blogs not just read for the heck of it, they want to know things, they are interested with details, feedback and your personal opinion. I believe it is important to be true with what you blog about – after all, this is one of the reasons why bloggers are even a better critique and endorser than a celebrity, don’t you agree? At the very least, those are my personal opinion.
For now, Let’s talk about being a Fashion Blogger… There are a few things you need to know to start up on being a fashion blogger.
1. Knowing your THEME and NICHE – Now, do remember that you are a fashion blogger so focus on fashion and style. It is important to know what kind of theme you want your readers to perceive you, after all, there are different types of fashion bloggers. Are you the type of fashion blogger who wants to just blog on what’s new out in the stores? What’s coming up? One who is active on events and fashion shows? Those who tend to share a lot of outfits and posts reviews, etc? Do know that its also good to know what type of readers are you focusing to get your attention and interests – is it for the preteens, mid to late teens? Are you focusing on fashion for kids, for men or just focusing on the type of having the fashion while being on a budget? It’s good to know what is your theme, as it will give you an idea what to publish on your blog.
2. Name your Blog – How do you want to be recognized by your readers? It’s nice to exert a bit of effort to make it personalized only for you so your readers can easily find you when they search for your blog online, especially when they don’t even remember or know the exact name of your domain. It’s like marketing – how you create your own brand for yourself!
3. Defining your Content – How will you make your content? How to do you publish your blog posts? All of these things are to be taken into consideration. Personally, if you would notice on my blog, I don’t really highlight every single word on a blog posts. I only put bold letters on the things I believe can highlight or bring importance to a specific topic I am talking about. I also sometimes do this to accentuate a brand I want to plug, at times. I also always make sure to insert wonderful photos within my blog. After all, I don’t want it to look dull – everyone gets bored with a blog post full of text and no photos, right? So put your research and photography skill to use. You can use your own photos or use stock photos available online. I also believe that the outline and color scheme of your blog defines you as a blogger not just a fashion blogger. Thus, I like to keep it clutter-free, simple and professional looking, as much as possible.
4. Be Social! Work on your Networking! – One of the few things to know is that, once you start blogging. Do know that you need to start building up your network. It’s nice to have other fashion bloggers as your friends as you get to learn from them as well. Sometimes, they will be sharing you stuff, as well. See them as your friends not competitors, we are not a shop or company competing for anything. Do know that you will need to share your blog updates each time, not in a spam-type of posts, ofcourse – people would hate that. Schedule what type of posts you might want to plug on your social networking sites. When you have a great build up of network, everything will follow through, from blogging events, PR connections, getting to know different types of people, etc. You may not notice this or maybe you will – but being a fashion blogger sometimes, makes you a role model as well – you inspire people! You should remember and take note of that.
As for me, it’s not really all about being a fashion blogger – again, it depends on the niche you want to focus. Way back years ago, I just started publishing blog posts all about skin care and beauty and I had readers who told me I should make a beauty blog – posting things of your own interest and passion helps out a lot. Everyone can easily know if you are posting for the heck of posting or really posting because you were true with what you are saying, etc. As for me, I focus on the things that interests me as a woman so I share anything related to women – you can say its a multi-niche type of blog that focuses on women’s interest between beauty, fashion and lifestyle. SEO-wise, this isn’t the best move to make, but this is what makes me happy and I love sharing my thoughts and opinion of the things I blog about – thus, if you have this kind of thought as well – then, it’s okay. After all, there is no specific rules with blogging and anyone can be a blogger!
