In Fashion: What I've Learned About Blogging12/27/2011
♥Nothing makes blogging more special than
being a part of a community. It's nice knowing bloggers by their first names; and it's even better being able to meet them in person at blogger meet ups, conferences and special events.
♥Basically, it's my blog and I'll blog how I want to. We should always be sure that we don't lose sight on what's important to us when it comes to blogging. Write about what we want to write about without feeling pressure to feature brands or posts that others will like. If you want ads on your blog then that's fine. And if you're against that, then that's OK too. Write your blog the way you see it. That's the main reason we started this blogging venture in the first place.
♥Half of fashion blogging is what you do on your on blog, and the other half is what you do on other blogs. I've known for a while that blogging is a two-way street and that interaction is a great way to keep engaged with the other blogs you follow and with the blogs that follow you. But I think more people in the community should be aware of this as it's a great tool to have in your blog kit.
♥Making your blog stand out can be accomplished in a variety of ways, from having a layout that is unique to your blog, or even personalizing your logo or blog buttons on your sidebar. It's great to also try to find unique brands to partner with, creative posts to write, and blogging in your own voice. Most of my blog buddies have very unique blogging styles that separate their blogs from the rest, and that's half the reason why I visit them day in and day out.
♥A couple of times this year I took a "blogging break" and I know others who have done the same thing. The break is needed when you feel stuck in a rut and lacking inspiration. Usually, the best way to not feel this way or to get over this is by being happy in what you blog about and keeping it fun.
