5 Blogging Tips We Picked Up From The #LetsBeMemorable Workshop | Clozette

Ever since the Internet was invented, thousands, if not millions, of people all over the world discovered "the blog" – websites created where anyone can express their passion for different things such as fashion, beauty, entertainment, food, and whatnot. However, because it’s become such a common thing nowadays, getting your blog to stand out can be quite challenging.

Which is why when we were at Kuala Lumpur for KLFW 2016, we decided to gather all our Clozetters in Malaysia for blogging workshop called #LetsBeMemorable. It was a morning filled with bonding with our fellow Clozetters, blogging tips from not only us but Clozette Ambassador and YouTuber Charis Ow, and a lot of fun and laughter!

So if you’re new to blogging, or need a bit more help in getting your content and website to pop out more, below we listed down the 5 blogging tips we picked up from the workshop!


--------------------------


Know your brand



The number 1 rule in blogging is to always know your brand. Are you going for that bright and happy look or that minimalist and “cool girl” aesthetic? Whatever it is, it should be reflected in all your social platforms – from your website, down to your other social sites – and, as much as possible, be consistent because it's going to be your "signature". 

Be yourself

Aside from knowing how you want others to see you, you should always make sure that your brand represents yourself too. After all, personality is key in the blogging world. Don’t be afraid to share the unique parts about yourself because it’s those quirks that will actually make you stand out more.


Create relevant content



While talking about something and providing a new POV on what you’re passionate about is important, it has to be relevant to the times and trends. Everything is searchable now, so make sure that the story you’re creating gives a unique take on an issue to get people talking about it and have them come back to your blog for more.


Engage with your audience

Whether your readers raise new questions to you, or are simply stating how much they love your blog, talk and speak to them. These are the people that you have, for lack of a better word, touched through your writing and engaging with them will make you seem “more real," someone they can relate to who feels like a friend. 


Pre-write and schedule



Sharing relevant stories on your blog is what will keep your readership growing. But there will come a time when you’ll feel tired or burnt out from writing new posts, especially if you're uninspired or you have other responsibilities like a full-time job. In order to power through that, you can pre-write and schedule in advance. Choose a day to dedicate to just writing new content for your blog and schedule them to go live on certain days. That way, you’ll have stuck to your posting schedule and will have new content up.

K-culture, K-drama, K-beauty, K-fashion! We just can’t get enough of the Korean craze here, so much so that even Zalora had to cave in to our demands as our go-to haven for shopping online. Earlier in August, the digital fashion retailer -- along with Samsung -- presented 16 premium Korean brands as part of the #ZaloraLovesKFashion evening held at The Blue Room at The Arts House.


Guests were treated to Korean-inspired canapés and soju cocktails, and a multi-label fashion showcase that reflected the it trend of the moment: Korean fashion. Ahead, we pick out six Korean labels -- now available at Zalora -- that have been filling up and readying our shopping carts for check out.

Lucky Chouette



The sub-brand of Jardin de Chouette, Lucky Chouette is a vibrant street style brand that boasts a casual yet feminine vibe. If you’re a fan of graphic prints with a youthful edge, get shopping here. The brand also recently teamed up with Laneige for the Korean beauty brand’s third annual installment of the Laneige Meets Fashion series, featuring its iconic owl motifs (Chouette translates to “owl” in French -- get it?) on the limited edition makeup products.

Stylenanda



For the Korean fashion lover, a Seoul holiday will always include a trip to Stylenanda’s brick-and-mortar store in Hongdae. Now, we know that the brand -- also known for their beauty line, 3CE -- is currently stocked online and at multi-label store i.t. in Singapore, but we have to say that we appreciate the convenience of a digital shopping cart (and warehouse) situated right at home.


Jucy Judy



Are you always game for some fun in fashion? Then Jucy Judy is right up your alley. Dubbing themselves as a fashion playground, Jucy Judy is for the girl on the street who knows no boundaries and is never afraid of experimenting with fashion.


Nohant



If you’re guilty of stealing your other half’s shirts to assemble your #ootds, you must know Nohant. This urban cool brand transforms classic pieces into sleek designs. The best part? It’s unisex. So, good news: you get to share a wardrobe staple. Bad news: you may end up fighting to wear a wardrobe staple.


Headline Seoul



Headline Seoul’s brick-and-mortar venture into Singapore was short-lived. After closing its first flagship store that opened in 2013 after almost two years, great news: they’re now back, and they’re on Zalora.

It’s that time of the year again where you have to temporarily say goodbye to summer and be sad that your hassle-free days are coming to an end. By this time, most students are back at their respective universities, while others still can’t accept the fact that school is about to start again.

Skinny jeans, mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, or any type of jeans are one of the most important, if not the most important, pieces of clothing everyone needs in their closet. They’re ready to wear at all times and will always make you look trendy without even trying.


Button Down Shirt


This wear-anywhere piece is very simple yet so elegant, and has always been a closet staple. What's not to love about this top? It doesn’t need much styling, and it can be matched with almost any kind of bottom.

Not really a fan of repetitive outfits? Put a denim jacket over it to add a bit of edge and twist; making you look instantly chic. Always a life-saver!
