How to become a fashion blogger

It was never easier than in this times to become what you want to be.

You only need few simple things wich you probably have if you are reading this post, and those are:

- Willpower
- Passion for fashion
- Computer with internet connection

In this blog post, we will go through basics of becoming a fashion blogger, and I  will give my personal experience input - as I am blogging for 5 years now (wow that sounds so long).

What is blogging?

Blogging is writing on certain topics and posting what you wrote online. Blogging is basically writing an online journal, topic by topic, although once you start earning money from it, you can surely consider it a job.

For you to earn money from blogging, you would have to have people to read it, and for people to read it you need a platform to share your text on - and that's where platforms such as Blogger, on wich you are reading this very blog post, come to the picture.

Where can you post your blogs? 

Free blogging platforms such as Blogger, WordPress, Jekyll, Wix and so on. Basically, registration is free and everything in it that you can use. I chose Blogger because of the reason this platform some of the fashion bloggers I followed used.

What should you name your blog?

It's very important to:

 start your blogging experience with the right name - you should be original and recognizable, just have that in mind.

Now that we have answered some of the questions that probably bother most of you guys (i know they do because once upon a time I was in your shoes)  let's start working on a blog itself.

How your blog looks are one of the thing's that will keep people there, or if you haven't done it right, push them away.

For you to understand how you should design (pick a theme, colors, fonts)  your blog to represent you as a solid, professional fashion blogger worth spending time reading.

 You should go around and do a little observation, or let's say research, of popular fashion blogs:

see wich colors they use, wich fonts prevail, what kind of themes they have on etc.

One of the most important things for you to become a fashion blogger is:

 Fashion related content.

You should start writing blog posts about the topic your blog is built around, and in this case, it's never ending and the always inspiring topic of fashion.

To have relevant things to say about the topic you are writing on you should be a fashion follower obviously. Keep track on fashion happenings, on who wore what and where, learn more about fashion history and its industry,  and of course give yourself a chance to give your personal opinions.

Basically, it's not a higher science - fashion blogging is all about writing online about things you love writing about, and in this case, we love fashion.
