If you love fashion and beauty products, you may be wondering how to start a fashion blog. Or, maybe you are convinced that there is no way you could start a blog devoted to fashion and style. If fashion is something that you’re interested in, then there is no reason that you can’t! All it takes is a love of fashion and the ability to write and photograph well.
Many women think that in order to start a fashion blog they need to be young, thin and gorgeous. That couldn’t be further from the truth! Women (and men) of all shapes, sizes and ages are interested in looking more fashionable.
To begin, you’ll need the traditional blog site and social media channels. Don’t get caught up in what type of blog, where it’s hosted or how to get followers. For now, start basic with a blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can always do more or less later.
Decide what your focus will be. Do you want to focus on plus sized fashion? Designer brands? Minimalist wardrobe tips? Be realistic about how often you wear what you want to write about. Will you want to invest in a whole new wardrobe? Will you wear what you’re styling on your blog?
You don’t necessarily need an expensive camera to get good photos but you will need a camera or camera phone. For the most part, people will want to see you wearing the clothes you’re writing about and that means someone will need to take a photograph of you.
Find a group of other fashion bloggers to learn from. You can try searching Google or Facebook for other bloggers who have the same vision. Once you know the direction you want to go, jump in and start posting. Don’t wait until everything is perfect or you may never start.
