Always remember you can be anything you wish to be, including a blogger.
Becoming a fashion blogger is a dream for many and after years of hard work, for some it is now is their reality.
Believe in yourself
The first obstacle many people experience is a lack of support by those closest to them, as many people still don’t believe that blogging can become a job. This requires a lot of effort and with time money can be earned but the most important thing is to always put passion first.
How does one begin with little or no budget? Fashion is about creativity, style and working with what is already available in your wardrobe. Having a wide variety of clothes to pick from is nice but is not necessary. In fact, limitation forces creativity and will help separate you from other bloggers by creating looks that are easily accessible to everyone.
Here’s a tip, wait for sales! Typically stores have sales at the beginning, middle and end of the year. If there’s a must-have item, try waiting for the next sale to pick it up at a discounted price.
This is Instagram we’re talking about, right? You don’t need the latest camera on the market or an expensive one either. Instead try getting creative with your camera and use apps to edit your pictures. Ask a family member or a friend to volunteer as your photographer, just make sure to provide them with some creative guidance on how you would like your pictures to look.
In addition to the styling of your outfits, try applying the same filter or colors to all of your pictures. With time, you’ll notice your Instagram will begin looking more organized.
Growing your audience is one of the most challenging parts. It requires patience but with time and dedication your followers will grow as people become more attracted to your style. Using relevant hashtags related to fashion is one way help gain exposure to a new audience. For example: #Fashion #Style #Blogger #FashionBlogger. Making sure to tag all of the brands in your photography and geotag locations, will also help engage new followers.
The fashion blogger space has become very competitive and is becoming more challenging for new bloggers to enter each day. However, the fashion blogger space is also always evolving and there will always be plenty of opportunity for new names to enter.
We hope this helps give you some lights to start this adventurous journey.
Remember, not everything is easy and just like any other job, it requires a lot of patience and effort.
