Fashion bloggers are an interesting mix aren't we? Who else takes photos of ourselves (often with a tripod) and posts them on the internet? Sounds strange when you say it out loud doesn't it? But somehow it's the most delightful escape, talking about outfits and fashion throughout the day.
What's more, is that not all fashion bloggers are the same. We're all different and each put our unique take on the ritual of getting dressed every day. Over the years, I've noticed a few types of bloggers evolve… which one are you?
You are gorgeous and your readers cannot get enough of you! Your content is stellar, and you're the center of it all! Readers come to your site to get a glimpse of the world of a star, and you love it. Sharing your favorite things gives your readers that “insider” feel of knowing a cool girl. People love commenting on your posts about how perfect your outfit is… and your Instagram is a treat of its own.
