Fashion blogging is a fabulous way to share your knowledge of fashion and your skill at putting together a variety of styles and trends. Share your fashion skills and love of style with your visitors.
Because the nature of the
blog is to provide information about what you know, there is a lot of creative
freedom you can have when starting a online business blog.
Fashion blogging ideas that come to my mind are discussing some of the creative styles you personally enjoy, how you've identified individual wardrobe pieces, what you did to create a specific "look".
Share your experiences on where you’ve found individual and unique pieces and how you’ve put them together to create your own individual style.
Encourage others to share their experiences creating their inspired fashion art.
Fashion blogging can allow you to remain independent and be your own person/business working from the comfort of your home or as you travel. Or you can seek out businesses who may want to hire your services – it’s best to get some experience under your belt and prove you are a worthy at fashion blogging before attempting to seek out companies to hire you.
Your blog can serve as your online resume for other businesses who may be interested in hiring you. Again, you may want to do a hybrid where you write your own fashion blog and work for others helping them with their blog as a consultant. There are lots of options for you to become successful at fashion blogging.
Resources: As you become a fashion blogger, you’ll want to have a good quality computer, internet connection, and work place comfortable for writing your blog. I like to recommend multiple monitors for efficient and easier computer work. Access fashion information, a good camera, and quality photos to share on your blog.
Research the best blog platform for your particular blog business to make sure you’ve got a good software program that allows you the flexibility to do your fashion blogging the way you want to build your posts.

Training: Some type of modeling, fashion school, retail job, or other exposure to fashion (although the gift of fashion seems to come naturally for some individuals!). If you struggle with writing or photography, look for classes at local recreation centers, community colleges, universities, or even online internet courses.
