Nowadays, more and more girls and women of all ages are going online for their fashion and beauty tips. This is of little surprise really, as online makeup tutorials and fashion guides offer the perfect blend of convenience and relevancy, with the huge choice of fashion and beauty bloggers meaning that any girl can find the right style guru for them.
Due to this new online age of fashion and beauty, more and more people are also deciding to become bloggers themselves and share their beauty and fashion tips and tricks with others. If you are considering doing this yourself, here is a quick guide on how to become a successful fashion blogger.
Firstly, get to know you own style and what you want to share with your audience. You may, for example, love budget high street fashion, and want to share with your audience how to get the best pieces for very little money. You could therefore make your blog or YouTube channel about this.
On the other hand, you may prefer more upmarket products and therefore want to center your tips and advice around finding these. You could, for example, find the best key designer pieces to buy for a reasonable price, helping your fans find the perfect pieces and investment of their money.
The next thing to bear in mind when building your online following is just how you are going to communicate with your audience. Some people are naturally very chatty, and prefer to make videos showing off their fashion hauls or doing makeup tutorials. Other people prefer to write or take photographs, and are therefore better suited to a blog or Instagram.
It is worth bearing in mind that fashion and beauty are very visual fields, and therefore Instagram and YouTube are two of the best social networks to start sharing your content on and building an audience. Indeed, these platforms are where a great deal of famous fashion and beauty bloggers started off.
The next piece of advice is to make sure that you take care to chat with your audience as much as possible and build a strong relationship with them. This is one reason why all kinds of YouTubers are so successful, and that is because they are making a real connection with their audience every time they speak directly to them on a YouTube channel.
Otherwise, be sure to chat with your audience in the comments section of your blog and on other social media platforms. Take the time to listen to their requests and also to answer any questions they may have. This will help you build up a sold relationship with your followers and encourage more people to follow you.
A word of warning, however: it can be easy to spread yourself too thin when trying to become a successful fashion blogger. Due to the fact there are so many social networks out there, it is easy to lose focus on the type of audience you are catering to. Instead, focus on building your audience on just two social platforms before you try to build an audience elsewhere.
Our last piece of advice for those who are wondering how to become a successful fashion and beauty blogger is that it is important not too expect too much to quickly, and remember that persistence is key. Apart from a lucky few, many bloggers take years before they get famous, so you must be consistent in your efforts in order to see results long term.
These are just a few tips on how to become and successful fashion blogger. The first step is to determine what you want to share and who you want to share it with, and then you must put in the effort to build up your audience and be consistent with the quality of your content over the long term.
Many people can be defined by their habits, such as drinking coffee. Many coffee drinkers enjoy the taste, and some enjoy the nice boost the caffeinated drink gives them in the morning. People can tell you approximately what age they started to drink coffee and why. People tend to answer "Oh! Coffee? I started drinking that in college! Studying and homework at the last minute. Thank you coffee and Google!"
Me? My first sip of the flavor was about in third grade. I know what you're thinking, third grade? That's such a young age to even think of drinking coffee. Don't worry, my mom liked to trick me into thinking I was older than I actually was. She'd fill the cup up with milk and a little of a vanilla flavored cream. She'd top the drink off with a splash of coffee for the color. Gullible me, there I was drinking a cup of coffee with the grown ups at the age of eight!
I'm absolutely convinced I was made to love coffee though. My mom would tell me stories of how she was pregnant with my older brother, Chris. Since he was the first child, my mom had to follow every rule there was in the book to having that beautiful, glowing, smart, and healthy child by the time he was ready to come into this world. So, books and other mother's had stated drinking coffee wasn't the best idea for the baby. Stunt growth and all of that non-sense (I'm a 5'7, young, lengthy, woman if you were wondering, so I'd like to possibly be evidence of coffee not stunting growth). But hey, my mother was just here to protect her first born, so in this case I do not blame her for drinking coffee while pregnant with Chris.
Bada-bing-bada-boom, my brother was born and four years later I'm on my way! Things were different this time around, my mother felt a little bit risky with this one. I guess while pregnant with me she had the choice to have a healthy baby or drink coffee for her satisfaction. Yes... you guessed it. She fell to her wants instead of my needs. Can you believe that? Ha, I'm only joking, I came out a healthy baby. While the pregnancy, she decided she'd give coffee a try.
To this day, I'm convinced that drinking coffee while you're pregnant with your child will only breed coffee addicts. Here I am today, being defined by my coffee drinking habits (well, that's not all that defines me). I'm sure if you asked anyone that knew me, one of the facts they know true to their heart is that I am quite in love with coffee, that's for sure. So why not share the love with all of the other coffee drinkers? Let's learn together about more products, international coffees, what coffee does, health facts, decor, coffee art (because who even knew there was such thing!)
Well, I hope you're making your second cup of the day because were about to get started!
