What has kept you fashion blogging?
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.
Your style Inspirations?
Sydney Girl: Other bloggers.
La Societe de Mode: Maddy: I ADORE the vintage classy, "i'm a working woman" type looks that make a woman look professional, but feminine. I also adore designers such as Marc Jacobs (who doesn't?) and junya watanabe and somtimes play into that childlike blend of bright patterns and colors and bows no one can resist. I'm inspired by it all.Rebecca: I would do anything to have Alexa Chung's style. Seeing her in person was just incredible, she sure knows how to dress.
And finally any tips for fellow fashion bloggers?
Sydney Girl: Don't be a blog snob. Appreciate the people who take the time to make a comment on your blog. Have content that is original, fresh and that you really love and other people will love it too.
La Societe de Mode: Do what you love and make a blog you can't help but read. If you love it, so will others. Be patient, and be consistent. If you take it seriously, others will take you seriously as well.
