With Paris and Milan still in my mind, I thought you’d might find it interesting to read some tips on how to become a better blogger. This list also includes some tips on how to get invited to exciting events like Fashion Week.
1. Content is everything
This includes showcasing a variation of different content, while maintaining your personal style. It also means fluent sentences (without spelling mistakes) and great photography/images. I personally think that spelling errors are the biggest no-no’s in the blogging industry. We aren’t exactly saving the world so if you want to be taken seriously it is the least you can do ;). Sure I make mistakes too, probably a whole lot of them. But I know my vocabulary, while some people just Google translate their sentences. The best tip I have on that is to have other people read your content, before posting it – or just write your content in the language you were born and raised with.
2. Find you personal style
A lot of other bloggers talk about how everyone should find her/his own niche to be successful. I don’t really believe in that, because I think it is more about finding your own style. Sure there are hundreds of other fashion bloggers on this planet and sticking out is difficult, but you are probably reading this because you like my style, not because my niche is so different from what everyone else is doing. With the word ‘style’ I do not just mean the way I dress, but it also includes my content, my tone of voice and how I try to connect with you all :).
3. Social Media
Social platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter are everything these days. While my favorite platform remains Instagram, the others are also great to look into, because you can reach a whole new audience on there. The point on being of social media also means you have to be social. Interact with people: respond to their comments, like other people’s pictures and engage. In my experience, this is the fastest way to grow online.
4. Be social
Being social isn’t secluded to social media ;). It is all about going to events, meeting new people and about interacting in real life. When you’re invited to PR events for the fist time you should ALWAYS go. Even if you don’t find it that interesting. The interesting part of it all is meeting new people, expanding your network, getting to meet other bloggers and getting to know new brands. This is the foundation of building your network and expanding your business. And who knows! You might even get a fun collab out of all of this! For instance, when I went to Milan for Fashion Week, other brands noticed I was there and I got some last minute invites to Paris too. We live in a social world and you can always use that to your advantage.
So guys! These were my tips on how to become a better blogger. Hope they can help you out. Let me know what you think of them. XO.
