I've been blogging since 2011. I don't want to say that it's been 3 years because if you follow my blog you would find a lot of gaps between my posts. The reason, you ask? Very simple; I lost interest. I lost interest in blogging because I did not find myself in a community where I wanted to belong to, and that's the fashion community in my country. I did not however stop following my favorite international bloggers (especially you Spanish ones<3). I am grateful to them because they reminded me of what fashion blogging started as; Street Style! (And no, not the street style Instagram accounts that are bullshit). It's about matching clothes you already have in your wardrobe, using an item in a way you never though of! It's a Mix-n'- Match affair as I like to call it. So what am I tryna approach my fellow Lebanese Fashion Bloggers?
What's up with you trying to sweeten yourself up?
Caramel, Chocolate, Vanilla? Why do you call yourself such names?
Stop with the "In Style" posts; "Going out in style", "Checking out X place In Style". We get it, you hang around the city in style, don't keep reminding us of so: show us! Make us comment on your post and go like "wow, what you're wearing is cool!"
Decide upon what you are. I am no business expert but a "Focus strategy" is the best strategy you could go about. So what are you? A Fashion blogger? A lifestyle blogger? Don't write posts just for the sake of writing or doing something similar to the rest! Maybe, (and only maybe) if you get enough viewers; you get the chance to be all you want!
For god's sake, you ain't no news reporter! Not every time a shop opens or something happens, you blog about it :/ You can tweet it, you can post in on Facebook, but is the news really worth a whole BLOG POST? Unless you were invited to an event and took some awesome pictures and you have good (and by good I mean meaningful) tips for us, do not bother writing a whole post about it.
People don't want to know about all your designer bags, they want to be able to identify with you! So unless you have worked real hard to get this bag (and by working hard I don't mean begging your father to get it for you), do not talk about it. We all want nice items (not necessarily designer labeled) and I am not against buying stuff (This is not an anti-materialistic post), but show us what to do in order to get similar stuff! Again, this is what blogging is about, no?
I don't know why you signed up to blogging at first, but if you're thinking you're going to be one of those bloggers that are earning millions, travelling around the globe attending events and covering them, getting expensive gifts from I don't know what brands, I am sorry (not) to burst your bubble, but you gotta work a little bit more on your content and what have you to earn that ^^
Any thoughts about the matter?
