I like to refer to a “fashion blog” as a fashion website, for the simple reason – there is more to it than blogging and posting content. Running a fashion website comes with a lot of responsibilities that you may not even think of.
Taking photos and posting about your personal style only makes up a small percentage of what goes into running and maintaining a fashion website.
If you’re interested in fashion and want to show off your take on it,
Looking to break into the industry,
Looking for a way to build up your clientele
Wanting an outlet to showcase your products or services,
Look at your fashion website as your resume, your portfolio.
Your website is your opportunity to create and showcase your skills and talents and share it with the world.
While you may think step one is getting your website up, that actually comes later down the line.
Do you know the type of content you’ll be sharing?
Your brand’s message?
How you plan on positioning yourself to stand out amongst the sea of blogs and websites?
The admin work and behind the scenes tasks that all go into running a website?
Yea, things that may have never popped into your mind.
