The surge of the Internet in the past two decades has created numerous possibilities that we never knew could happen. And this includes creating new jobs that are relatively recent and unique to this technologically advanced age. One of those new career paths is blogging. Looking back to 10 years ago, blogging was uncommon and maybe even unheard of by the average person. But now, it's a booming industry that has proven to be very financially rewarding. Fashion blogging, in particular, is a very popular niche. The industry now has renowned fashion bloggers with massive following, giving them something similar to celebrity status.
Part of why we are interested in fashion bloggers is their ability to earn money from doing what they love. Well, the good news is, you can do it, too. So read on as we and Clozetters Cassadra Tan, May Guerrero and Tesle Telan share our tips on how to do fashion blogging full-time.
Produce Quality Content
You've probably heard this many times but it's true — you have to produce great content. If you want to be a full-time blogger, then you have to be really good at what you do. Fashion bloggers make it look like it's easy to create quality content but it's not.
Take it from Clozette Ambassador Cassandra, who says, "People follow you because what you create benefits them, so the amount of effort that you put into your blog posts, photo and videos can always be seen. Care about the content that you make and be ready to make an effort to go location scouting, gathering all the right information, and sourcing props among other things."
Meanwhile, Star Clozetter May Guerrero emphasizes the importance of capturing good photos, saying, "Learn how to take quality pictures. Capture unique and original photos to make your blog look professional." This means that you have to invest in a decent camera, learn about lightning techniques, know your most flattering angle and learn some basic editing skills.
Above everything else, coming up with good ideas is the most essential part of blogging. Give twists to the usual fashion content. As an example, instead of the usual latest trends post, how about giving the trends of past decades a modern twist? Just play around with ideas and see what will be interesting for your audience.
