I know there’s a ton of articles telling you “Blog secrets revealed!” or “How to be unique in the crowded Fashion sphere”, but the truth is there are only 5 real ingredients for any successful blogger.
And it’s not hard to figure them out. Look at the pretty successful blog already out there doing a great job. What do they have in common? What makes you coming back everyday on their platform? How would it possible for you to achieve success? What is the recipe?
Once you’ve answered those questions, you’ll be on the right road. Luckily for you, we’re going to skip all of those tough questions, and we’ll get straight to the answers. Dive right into the 5 things to start doing to find your uniqueness.
#1 High-five yourself. Your style is yours because it’s unique and special. Of course, you have the ability to put together some incredible outfits, and you don’t need someone to give you his approbation. You’re dressing for yourself, and you’re doing it according to your own personality. It’s also a trick to motivate yourself to try more and not backing back about something you don’t feel like giving up onto. What about being happy about that outfit you’re wearing today?
Ps: A big misconception is that you need to wear designer clothes to feel part of the big league. You don’t. Some bloggers only wear affordable pieces, and they are definitely the best influencers out there.
#2 Set some goals. People with goals are more satisfied with their lives. If you set some style goals, it might be easier to accomplish them. Plus, you’ll feel like you’re in control of your own style and in progression. It’s up to you to find your style.
#3 Put on some IRL glasses. Instagram is such a tricky social media. Don’t you feel that everything is always picture perfect? Sometimes, I won’t lie, I do. Exception is most magazine editorials have a team to make them look incredible and to make you feel like it’s all rosy and glossy. Kick in this tendency to give yourself a hard time, and start to look at things, as it’s already good the way it is.
#4 Giving back. Soon as you realized some people as less lucky than you are, you’re realizing that it’s not all dark. Put in perspective this, giving back feels good. Giving back to charity – think about the clothes piling themselves in your closet – will feel good, since you’re helping others.
#5 Stop this FOMO syndrome. This FOMO (fear of missing out) is somehow one of the most popular syndrome in our society. I read somewhere it’s time to practice the JOMO (Joy of missing out). Around Fashion week, I feel I’m missing something important. But, as a blogger, my device is almost glued to my hands. Trying to beat this one constantly, it’s hard work, but it doesn’t mean you can’t find inspiration through your Instagram feed.
Ideally, all of those 5 truths will set up a path for you to find your style. As long as you combined those #5, you’re going to kiss a$$ in the blogosphere and in life.
