If you enjoy writing fashion blogs or blogging about anything clothing or style relevant, you have found the proper place to begin your research. On this page you will find a few tips to help you get started.
Having ideas to write about is one thing, but getting them in front of viewers is an entirely different matter.
How to create a fashion blog:
Step # 1: Find a Platform.
WordPress - WordPress is most associated with blogging but has evolved to support other types of web content including more traditional mailing lists and forums, media galleries, membership sites, learning management systems and online stores. WordPress is used by more than 60 million websites, including 33.6% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2019, WordPress is one of the most popular content management system solutions in use.
Why is their a WordPress.org & WordPress.com? The first obvious difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org is the hosting. WordPress.com hosts your website on their servers for free, whereas if you use WordPress.org you will have to find a premium hosting provider.
WordPress.com: they are a hosted version of the open source software. Here, you can start a blog or build a website in seconds without any technical knowledge.
Blogger - Blogger is Google’s free tool for creating blogs. Blogger is a blog-publishing service that allows multi-user blogs with time-stamped entries. It was developed by Pyra Labs, which was bought by Google in 2003. Whether sharing your expertise, breaking news, or whatever’s on your mind, you’re in good company on Blogger.
Wix - Start a fashion blog on WIX. Bring your ideas to life by writing and managing your blog whenever inspiration strikes, on your desktop or on the go.
Social Media - Yes, posting on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc., is very similar to writing a fashion blog. These social media platforms can be utilized as a blogging platform. HOWEVER, keep in mind that when using social media you are not building "your own" website. When posting on social media, you are essentially adding content to that companies website. If you own your own website domain and post on your own site, you are then truly adding content to your own website.
Step 2: Write Your Fashion Blog
Are you looking for a new topic to discuss on your blog? Learn more about fashion shows, fashion designers, clothing stores, fashion brands, etc. Blogging about special events, emerging designers, shopping sales, trends, etc., are often a good idea.
Stay true to your sense of style. If your every day style and previous articles are about wearing grunge, it may not be the best idea to write just one article about luxury high heal shoes to be worn with a dress to go to the opera. Sure, it is OK to expand and test the waters in other areas, but keep in mind your audience. If people are visiting you to learn about grunge, they may not need to learn what to wear to the next met gala.
Be personal & don't be afraid to be yourself. Fashion blogs are not about being cookie cutter or bland. Don't be like everyone else (unless you enjoy being like everyone else). Don't be afraid to explore & be creative.
What are other people doing? Read fashion blogs written by other people. You don't always need to reinvent the wheel. Check with other successful writers are doing.
