The Independent Fashion Bloggers Guide to…Professionalism


The last IFB Guide on Affiliates and Monetization was pretty popular, so this week I've put together another. The topic? Professionalism. Even if you're not a “professional” blogger in the sense that your blog pays your bills, it's still important to be professional when communicating with brands, readers, and the general blogging community. A reputation for unpredictable, unprofessional behavior can completely wreck your blog before it even builds momentum. So how do you establish credibility, find networking contacts, avoid conflicts, and work with brands? Scroll below and click an article to find out!

    This has got to be one of your best articles yet. This and the one about Affiliate/Networks for bloggers. Such great tips. As my blog grows in readership, I am way more aware of the things I say. Can speak of a dietary influence a young girl? Can a joke offend? Does my sarcastic phrases sound snobby? I think of each thing and everytime I read through your site I go back to mine to make sure I’m treating my blog as a job. And I wouldn’t say certain things to a Boss. Im going to tweet this link in a moment. great post!
