100 followers and how I got them!

Today I woke up to my 100 follower award!

And I feel like throwing a party! I knew blogging would be hard work and take lots of commitment and consistency to get me where I wanted to be, but the reward of an increasing following is coming sooner than I expected, so that’s just great!

Some of you may have thousands of followers, and my number may be but a pinch of salt to you. On the flip side some of you might only have a couple of followers to your name so far and want to know more about how you can hit that 💯! So here are my three top tips for successful blogging!

1: Post consistently

As much as blogging is done for fun, if you’re wanting to build up a good following, you need to give something back! Regular posts will keep your followers interested. If you only blog every couple of weeks, your blog isn’t going to gain any momentum!

Set yourself the task of sitting down and working out how regularly you can write a good blog post. You might find you can write one every Monday, Thursday and Sunday. Or like me, you could blog daily! It just depends on your schedule and how you decide to fit blogging in! I wake up a little earlier than I used to now, so that I can make sure I have a good blog posted before I go to work!

2: TALK TO OTHER BLOGGERS!

I can not say this enough! Your blog is ran by you and you alone. But the blogging world is not a lonely place to live… it is rich with information and people that have the same interests as you, and indeed have something to share. Get out into the blogging community and share your thoughts on others posts, if you like the blog, give it a follow. It is that simple. I have picked up so many tips from my fellow bloggers and I have had fun reaching out to others to share a kind word.

If you’re not reaching out to other people, why should people take an interest in what you’re saying? We can all grow together, imagine how good it would feel if you rose to success along with the people who stuck with you from the beginning? HELL YEAH!

3: Make use of the tags!

This is a pretty simple one, when you’ve finally got to the end of your blog post, make sure you tag the topics your blog covers! If you write about fashion, tag fashion. This way people who are interested in he same subjects as you will see your posts! It’s no good blogging into thin air, you will find it a lot harder to gain readers this way! You can add up to 15 tags per post so USE THEM!

Valentines Fashion Picks: Dresses

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! …Don’t you just love, LOVE. And the fashion that comes with it of course?!

I do! But you probably figured that out already!

Why? Because love is one of the most beautiful things in the universe. So if we celebrate being born, we are sure as hell entitled to celebrate love! Am I right? Of course I am!

Deep down inside all of us is the desire to be loved, and to love alike. If you’re in love already, good for you! If you’re not, don’t stress, hey, you could even meet your match this very Valentine’s Day. Or party the night away with your single independent gal pals -it’s your day so do whatever you want with it!

So let’s kick off my valentines fashion picks with…

1: The Belice Dress by House of CB

Need I say more! This dress is tailored to perfection and that is reflected in the price at £129! So if you’re planning a sophisticated night out somewhere special, this is the dress for you!

2: The Bonnie Dress from Tigermist

This dress screams passion! The colour of love and the deep lacy plunge make this dress drop dead gorgeous 😍! All the way from Australia this dress will set you back $40 reduced from $89 as it’s on offer as we speak!

3: The Black Lace Fishtail Dress From Missguided

This dress screams classic LBD featuring a classy twist with the fish tail! I’m literally in love with this dress! I’m thinking cocktails in a high rise?.. A girl can dream!
