Blog of the Week: Independent Fashion Bloggers
This week the BoW accolade goes to a site for more than just pretty images and witty content. So much more than just a blog, IFB is the web equivalent of a Haynes Manual for wannabe fashion bloggers. The website (yes ok, so technically it's not a blog) acts as a community for fledgling and seasoned fashion bloggers alike, offering a forum, technical tips and the opportunity for users to send in their own stories and articles for publication, boosting traffic to their own blog in the process.
Created back in September 2007 by American-born blogger Jennine Tamm of The Coveted, IFB is a fantastic resource for those new to both fashion blogging, and blogging in general, as many of the tips on the site are not confined to fashion alone.
The 'Tech Tips' section is packed full with info on how to customise blog posts, increase reader traffic via search engines and how to make the most of found content. Other useful articles include a guide to getting press credentials and how to take the perfect self portrait, something every fashion blogger would find useful.
If you're interested in setting up a style/trend/fashion related blog then definitely check this website out before you take the plunge. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to research Copyrighted images and self portraits...
