your blog is gonna stand out against them well I have some tips for you ladies that wants to create your own blog bash Alana forth and I'm gonna give you guys some tips that has helped me with my blog and I get a lot of questions about how did you get your blog started do you have any tips and I do provide a little bit tips on my blog but you guys do actually more questions about it so I feel like maybe I should give you guys little details little tips tap you guys start off your blog or if you are a blogger and you need help with you know creating more of a successful blog definitely check out my video ok guys so I have been blogging since 2008 I mean initially when I started blogging I had no idea this is going to be such a big deal I kind of did it because I wanted to just you know take photos of my outfit you know if I'm going out with my friends I would get a lot of compliments and I felt like you know what why why not make a blog why not show people my outfits I didn't know that people were going to focus on me as much as I thought I kind of just did it for fun it was a hobby of mine I didn't really take it seriously in the beginning I was gained a lot of followers I didn't know exactly what I was trying to do it was just for fun back in 2010 so if you go on my blog and you see a lot of my work in 2010 put little to no effort and it's amazing how many people follow me again I put out the content that I put back I put out in 2010 was crappy you know I've had a regular camera I would say which is in the dark I was introduced in my house the lighting sucks you couldn't even see the details of my outfit but I just really wanted to go on my blog and express myself and you know I wouldn't an outlet where I can show people my sense of style because they're definitely I've seen so many bloggers average-size pockets but I felt like there wasn't a lot of representations of plus-sized bloggers now in 2013 it's a little different I do take my plot very seriously I do like to put great content I do like to update my blog regularly and that is very important so if you're gonna start a blog you have to first of all you have to create a really fun username my username on my blog is on the Q train calm I love that name I've had that name since 2007 I'm wait before blogging and I love the trains I have this obsession with trains I don't know what it is I love the trains and I used to take the Q train every single day to college so that was a train that I saw my inspiration I was trying I would reflect on my life listen to great music meet new people I'll study sleep eat all that gray slip on the train so that is a game that I really love so that is my name so definitely create a name that's going to you know show off your personality in your sense of style that you're gonna have a fashion blog also the one thing that you have to do when you start a blog don't have to because it's dead you can't out update your blog like once a month no one's going to check to check for you if you're gonna update your blog once a month you're gonna have to update when you first begin your blog regularly it's my sleep that may seem a lot but when you first started a blog you need to put out regular content so to spice the week you want to put out some you know photos on your blog you want to update regularly also another great tip that I did not have back in 2009 and I recently just got it you have to have a lot of networks but you have to have social networks by Facebook you have to have social networks like Twitter I don't have a Twitter I'm sorry I better not bad Instagram you just have all these different outlets because your blog is not gonna grow if you're not on social media it's no one's gonna grow people are not gonna find out who you are if you're just blogging you have to network you have to have other social media outlets so definitely I agree with that please if you're starting a blog please get a Facebook page get a Twitter account get an Instagram get a tumblr get it you to get everything everything you could think of because you want people to succeed your face you want to just touch your stuff because you aren't your friend so you want to advertise yourself like crazy so people can know who you are and say oh my god this is this new girl she's really dope I've seen her over that's what she want to hear you have to also if you're if you have a blog you have to also network with other bloggers you can't just sit back and have a blog and not comment anybody's blog not visit anybody blog no one's gonna finds out who you are if you're sitting back on your black spot and not you know networking I'm sorry from talking like this but I'm telling you guys it's the truth if you guys have wants to be successful you're gonna have to put in the work so you're gonna have to you know mingle with other bloggers you're gonna have to network now that everybody is gonna be nice okay trust me when I first began blogging a lot of bloggers were really not that nice but you want to be nice you wanna you know introduce yourself don't flood their their comment section with okay please follow my BOB that is annoying but you can you know hit them then tell them you'll check out my club and you don't recommend don't just you know hit up their box just for them to follow you back I know people doing that to me I don't realize that how you people are really genuine they really followed me because they're interested in my staff interested in my content so you definitely want to do that another great thing I have to say is don't stress yourself out just do it don't don't worry about what other people are doing don't worry about other bloggers that is not going to help you that's also that's gonna stress you out and you don't want to do that you want to worry about yourself you want to worry about perfecting your craft because to me my blog is my baby and I can't worry about the people I worry about myself don't stress yourself out buying a whole bunch of clothes to put it on no don't do that you're gonna spend all this money and you're gonna be broke and it doesn't make any sense so you want to you know create a style that you can identify you with and also you want to be responsible you don't want to spill this money on stones just to you know keep up with the Joneses it's not gonna hurt you like that so these are some tips for my ladies my camera is about to die but I feel like you guys aren't passing asking these questions I really would help you guys so thumbs up if you've got more videos like this I know it would be very helpful I didn't get this feedback when I started my blog no one really helps me no one encouraged me the one um you know tell me what to do I kinda just
