So some of you may know that I've recently landed a new job. I have left my job at the National History Museum to work with a fabulous company where I will be working in their press department as well as writing their blog. I am SURE that I'll be sharing more details with said company soon, however, I may be keeping this separate. Anywho, we get a lot of emails about how we got this far with Bright Young Twins. Of course our blog isn't perfect, we both don't post as much as we'd like, (and please don't think us 'up ourselves') however, heres our best advice.
Pick yourself a good name and stick to it. The best blog names are the ones that you can remember off the top of your head. Fleur's 'Diary of a Vintage Girl' is a great example of a great name. It just does says what it says on the tin.
Find your niche. Whats the point of writing another Vixen Vintage, Fashion Forestry or Andi B Goode? If you wanted to read about an amazing red head who sticks all manner of crazy beautiful head dresses in a Vice style photoshoots then you'd read Nicole's awesome blog right? It took me and Harriett a while to find our niche, it came when we got more creative with clothes and more ahem creative with words. Theres a million great ideas out there, make sure no one can do it like you.
Lovely lovely original content. Okay, so a lot of bloggers do the whole reblogging over images, but on the whole the best blogs (in my humble opinion) are the ones who produce great writing and photographs. Would you read our blog if we constantly compiled together other ladies' images? Probably not.
Hang on in there! Rome wasn't built in a day, look at all your favourite bloggers, I doubt their Smorgasbord of loyal followers didn't appear over two days. Keep going, digits aren't everything. If you've put together a great blog with some good quality content then I think thats something to be proud of.
I hope this helps, lots of love.
Got any advice? Think we're wrong?
