Decide exactly what to blog about
This can either be the easiest part or the hardest part of starting your blog site. If you already understand exactly what your interests and passions are, you’ll currently understand that this is what will define your blog site.
The most important thing at this stage is to choose a niche to own and call yourself an authority in– the greatest error many new bloggers make in such a congested blogosphere is to start a blog without aiming to do something interesting or offering readers something various.
If style is your thang, rather than choose to become an ordinary fashion blogger, why not combine your love for fashion with your big-hearted concern for the environment by creating a blog that focuses on environmentally conscious clothing lines instead.
You can keep readers up-to-date on the controversy surrounding high street style outlets and their connection with sweatshops whilst channeling your love for design (bonus idea: debate is always great for drawing in readers).
Originality goes a long way in this game! Particularly nowadays, where there are literally millions of fashion blog writers out there, so what can you provide that they don’t have covered already? Discover your niche and own it.
