Social Media For Fashion Bloggers – Oct 24

Q1 As a fashion blogger, What social media tools do you find most useful? Most useless? #BlogTrends

@emilyanne227: Twittter for sure! it has helped me get guest blog posts on sites like @InternQueen #blogtrends

@DigitalKaitlyn: A1 I love twitter, always my first choice to post. I also love @pose for fashion, it’s like instagram for fashion #blogtrends

@blackblondeone: A1 For me, facebook is just redundant and so stick w/ Twitter which is real time. Great way to connect. #blogtrends

@blackblondeone: A1 Twitter is also more accessible. You can see the immediate effect. #blogtrends

@NYConmymind: A1 other than the basics of Face book and Twitter I am really loving Instagram and Pinterest! #BlogTrends

@novanights: @BlogTrendsChat twitter has helped me the most thus far it’s a great way to discover all the other fashion bloggers out there #BlogTrends

Q2 How do I edit the amount of social networks I am involved in? Should I be on every platform? #BlogTrends

@blackblondeone: A2 Like life in general, I try to excel on one area, like Twitter, and just learn the basics of the others. #blogtrends

@DigitalKaitlyn: A2 the way I feel is that it’s best to pick 1-3 networks & build them up,then expand 2 others as needed.Don’t overwhelm yourself #blogtrends

@emilyanne227: A2 I think the more direct you can be the better. if that means picking and choosing what social networks to be apart of! #blogtrends

Q3 What are your thoughts on social media ranking tools, like Klout and peerindex? #BlogTrends

@DigitalKaitlyn: I like Klout but it can’t be taken to seriously. It’s a fun representation of recent engagement but not of overall popularity #blogtrends

@blackblondeone: A3 I’ve personally never used Peerindex, although I probably should. #blogtrends

@DigitalKaitlyn: @blackblondeone peerindex is also fun and seems to give you a bit more insight than Klout. Another good 1 is twentyfeet #blogtrends

@novanights: @BlogTrendsChat Q3 I’m sad to say I’ve never used either but I’m definitely going to explore using them now! #BlogTrends

@DigitalKaitlyn: @NYConmymind I learned about Klout at ifb last February and peerindex has been more recent #blogtrends

Q4 If you had to pick 3 social networks or tools that a fashion blogger must use what would they be? Why? #BlogTrends

@blackblondeone: A4 I think my top three would have to be Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr. #blogtrends

@DigitalKaitlyn: A4 I love twitter @pose and facebook for my top 3 but tumblr is huge for fashion #blogtrends

@NYConmymind: A4 Definitly Twitter, Blogger, Pinterest, and Instagram #BlogTrends

@blackblondeone: @DigitalKaitlyn I use tumblr a lot for inspiration, since I dont do inspirational posts #blogtrends

@emilyanne227: @BlogTrendsChat probs @polyvore @Pinterest @instagram for ideas and organizing your blogging life #ithelpsme #blogtrends

@thestylecircuit: @blackblondeone I agree. They’re the 3 with the most reach. Tumblr is all about reblogging and Twitter is a way to reach brands #blogtrends

@TheTinyTieRant: @thestylecircuit @blackblondeone i use tumblr as my main blogging platform as it is much simpler & easier for me to navigate #blogtrends

@NYConmymind: @TheTinyTieRant If you put your own link to the pinterest people will be led back to your blog #BlogTrends

@DigitalKaitlyn:i like @pose too because it’s focused on outfits & accessories while allowing you to follow those you enjoy the most #blogtrends

@TheTinyTieRant: @DigitalKaitlyn ohhh yes fashiolista is good and they have a widget u can put right into ur blog to display what u like #blogtrends

@thestylecircuit: @NYConmymind so true! I’ve gotten a lot of followers by posting to Chictopia. I’ve also started experimenting with Lookbook.nu #blogtrends

Q5 What are your Twitter best practices? How much tweeting, who to follow, what to tweet etc… #BlogTrends

@blackblondeone: A5 I usually follow back, unless it’s a spammer, creeper, or someone that just promotes themselves all the time. #blogtrends

@TheTinyTieRant: @BlogTrendsChat hashtag most everything! u will gain tons of followers #blogtrends

@NYConmymind: A5 I tweet about anything &everything, I tend to forget who follows me, but I am real on twitter as in person! (i curse a lot) #BlogTrends

@BlogTrendsChat: A5 My twitter best practices vary but mostly consist of a balance of give and take #blogtrends

@DigitalKaitlyn: A5 I like to promote my followers with retweets and replies before I ever ask for help with anything #blogtrends

@blackblondeone: A5 I also like to talk about my normal life and not just fashion, because I think it might get boring #blogtrends

@TheTinyTieRant: @BlogTrendsChat @DigitalKaitlyn twitter turn off: instant auto dms #blogtrends

@novanights: @BlogTrendsChat I try to follow everyone that’s a real person that follows me because we are all here to build a support system #blogtrends

@thestylecircuit: A5 I usually follow back fashion bloggers who follow me. I try to do #FF every so often to spotlight people I find interesting #BlogTrends

@NYConmymind: I only follow people who are significant2 me even if they dont follow back. Like music artists, bloggers, friends, brands #BlogTrends

@blackblondeone: A5: I also try to stay of Twitter more during weekends and after work. I do need some Lindsay time after all #blogtrends
