Create a Plan for Your Fashion Blog
Just like any business aimed at profit, you will need to have a goal and a game plan. Having a plan maps out in advance the direction you will be taking, how you will be getting there, and what you can do to make sure you actually get there. If you do not have a well-laid out plan for your fashion blog, take some time to plan before you start actual work on anything. You would not want to waste your energies working on a project when you do not have the vaguest idea where it is going to lead you or how you even intend to get there. Many bloggers start out prematurely and end abandoning their projects after weeks, simple because they do not know how to proceed or where. Any project should involve a clear-cut plan; and this applies to fashion blogging as well.
Now, is it possible that you may have missed something important? After creating your plan, make sure that you have everything covered. By answering these questions, you will at least know that you already have a good head start on things.
What goals do you intend to realize in a month? Every month? In a year? Which steps do you need to take in order to realize these goals? How long do you intend to complete the plan? How much do you need to invest financially into the plan? Do you possess the needed skills in order to carry out the plan?
It is fairly easy to miss a few things when you are doing all the planning on your own. These questions can help you stay on track should you veer off course while planning on your fashion blog project. Without a good plan, it will be more challenging for you to be a successful fashion blogger or to be able to make money online. Achieving success in any venture will depend on how effectively you have planned for it; and this is exactly the case with setting up a fashion blog.
STEP 3: How to identify a potential market niche

It is not enough to have a fashion blog, however. With the huge number of fashion sites populating the blogosphere, you will have to choose a market niche in order to stand out. Again, it is not enough to choose just any segment off the market. You have to choose a niche wherein you can establish yourself as an expert. In straight and simple words, pick a niche you are passionate on. When you are blogging about things you are interested in and are an expert on, doing so will come almost naturally. Doing something because you love doing it is easier than when you are doing it only for the sake of recognition or for money. If you must blog about fashion, make sure that it is about something that you are passionate about.
