    Also I watched a news piece on the photoshoot that they did with Taylor Swift for that Glamour cover. It was very interesting to see what they liked in a photo and what they didn’t. They chose that shot because she was looking directly at the camera.

    Have original content is great way to be featured.
    Great list by the way, but you might want to rename your post to how to get traffic to your blog.

    Very motivational! Great list! The HARO tip in the comments is very true, too. I’ve gotten my husband quoted in New York Times, and me & friends on Good Morning America & Nate Berkus Show, just to name a few, as a result of HARO

    Just when you think you’re doing everything you can, there’s always other solutions! Thanks so much for this list. I’m saving it now for future reference.

    Honestly, as a blogger outside US and Europe where brand-blogger collaboration are robust, I’m a little confused as to how I can connect with publicist and brands in order to collaborate with them. But for the rest of the list I agree, there’s no point of staying the same with other bloggers, we have to stand out and reach out in a good way.

    I so needed to read this. I’ve been working on this issue lately. I was so wrapped up in doing events now I’m pulling back to focus on building my credibility. That’s really important to me!

    As a newbie blogger, it’s been tough to find a following ’cause there are so many out there. I’d like to establish more “real” relationships with other bloggers, but it’s been difficult when it seems everyone wants you to “follow me, and I’ll follow back” and in actuality, they just want you to follow them – but there is no real personal connection ever made again.

    But I’m glad I saw this post. I’m going to print it out and add it to my ‘to-do’ list!

    Okay, so this post is going to become like my version of the bible. I feel like, after a couple of months getting going, that I am ready to start ‘being featured’ and ready to branch/reach out to others and the ideas and tips you have featured will help me to do this. Thanks for the great advice, I think I will pretty much work through the whole list. I fully expect to come back to you when I have checked off number 25 and am an internationally renowned blogger. See you on the front-row!

    Oh, I’m actuall going through IFB posts and these are so useful. I can’t believe how much I’ve learned. I do think I have a different point of view but some people do not respect that because obviously not everyone agrees with me…

    I came across your site in search of information on niche blogging and was not disappointed. I have absolutely no fashion sense, (& only a passing interest in the subject, until now), but the blogging posts listed here, have been very informative, insightful, well thought out and fun to read. Thank you for posting them!

    It’s quite an eye opener yet a great refresher, reading this. Been trying new ways to expand my readership and I decided upon doing a giveaway! It’s still on going so do drop by and I recently tried to take on more controversial topics like the gift and curse of make-up and cosmetics! http://www.silverpotpourri.com
