Fashion Spotlight: Fashion Bloggers Part One
I started blogging after reading my friend's personal/travel blog, I had no idea that is was essentially a little world with its own "celebrities", and that bloggers were so influential that you could find them in front row of catwalks. Blogging quickly became my new obsession, I liked the sense of community and the freedom of expression (which is a polar opposite to the writing I'm used to as a Psych student which is very objective and follows the strict guidelines of APA). So this post is dedicated to fashion bloggers about fashion bloggers, and written with bloggers in mind. Hope you learn from these fellow bloggers how to grow your own blog as they have theirs. Thank you to La Societe de Mode, Obsession Isnt Just a Perfume, Fashion Whore The Sydney Girl for taking part. Part One features The Sydney Girl and La Societe de Mode, I'll be posting the second and final part next week.
Sydney Girl: I love being creative with makeup, hair styling and what I wear. Blogging about it helps me express that creativity and share it with others. I also love my readers, and that has also kept me blogging.
La Society de Mode: We are so inspired by the world of fashion and blogging is a way to stay connected with it. We feel as though updating our blog is like writing in a journal; it's something you just gotta do for yourself.
How did you build your fellowship?
Sydney Girl: Mostly commenting back when someone comments on my blog. I think it is important for bloggers to develop a nice interaction with their readers.
La Societe de Mode: We commented on blogs and posts we genuinely liked and just hoped our blog would be good enough to attract readers
What do you think makes your fashion blog unique?
Sydney Girl: I try to add a particular freshness to it which gives it my own twist. I try to be creative and let the rest go from there.
La Societe de Mode: We think that our interviews make us unlike any other fashion blog out there. We're obessed with talking to other industry professionals and networking. Also, we're the only street style fashion blog of Rennes, France that we know of!
You have ads/sponsors on your blog, how did this come about? Also would you recommend monetising to other fashion bloggers?
Sydney Girl: Making money on a blog is really an individual thing. I think you need to establish why you have your blog. Is it to make money or is it share your passion for fashion with others? I think advertising and sponsors come handy when your blog has an extremely high volume of readers.
I don't have any ads or sponsors. Mainly bloggers and companies have approached me to swap links which helps promote my blog and theirs.
