Geek Chic by Blossom

Today we have some fabulous words of advice for anyone who wants to start a fashion blog.

This post was written by 12 year old fashionista Blossom who’s from Lincolnshire in England.

And if you’re already a fashion blogger, leave a link in the comments so we can check it out.

 

Hello there, readers of Kids Blog Club! My name’s Blossom, and I run a blog called Geek Chic, which you can find here

It is a personal style blog, with the occasional lifestyle and beauty post thrown in. Now, I’m quite new to the blogosphere, and I think it’s been great. I’m going to tell you 5 tips to starting a fashion blog. Let’s go!

1- Find Your Niche: First, you’re going to need to find your Niche; whether it be Vintage Style, Doubling Denim or DIY-ing Clothes, find something that is natural for you to write. If you insert your natural voice into your writing, people will believe and connect to it more.

2- Plan Your Posts: What sort of things are you going to write? How often are you going to post them? How long/short are they going to be? Think of all this before you post any, otherwise you may lose track of time, or post something you may have already talked about!

3- Pick A Name: Good names draw people in. Think of books like Twilight, and The Hunger Games- if Twilight was named Vampire Sparkle Love, would you read it? If The Hunger Games was named Arena Fight, would you read it? No. Plain and Simple.

Those names are boring, and have no oomph in them. Instead of naming your blog ‘Unique Style Blog’, why not name it ‘Chic Unique’ or ‘Unique Chic’. It is more eye-catching and will draw readers in.

4- Design Your Layout: Nobody likes a blog with a clustered, messy layout. Blogger and WordPress have lots of pre-made themes, which are quick and easy to use. Despite what other people say, I don’t think you should spend a lot of money on designs.

Pick one that is clean and easy to use. Only use money if you absolutely have to.

5- Promoting & Social Networks: Not everyone will have access to Social Media sites such as Twitter & Facebook- and that’s okay! If you have an older sister or brother, maybe they could advertise some new posts on your blog!

If you are old enough to get Twitter or Facebook, join in on conversations. Don’t be a stranger!

I hope all this has helped anyone wanting to start a Fashion Blog!
