“Should I start a fashion blog?” If you are asking this question you probably already know the answer.
If you want to start a fashion blog, I say go for it! You have nothing to lose. And, if you figure out that you don’t like blogging about fashion, you can at least say you tried and didn’t like. (Otherwise, you’ll probably spend the rest of your life wondering how your life would be different if you did start that fashion blog).
Starting a fashion blog is not difficult. There are a ton of tutorials out there to help you start your blog, especially on the technical side. But I’m not here to talk about how you can start a fashion blog. I’m here to talk about why you should start a fashion blog.
If you already have a fashion blog, that’s awesome! (Leave it in the comments, I would love to visit!). I hope you will gain some inspiration from this post, even as a blogger yourself.
If you are still undecided, this post will help guide you in going through with starting your fashion blog.
(And if you are not interested in starting a fashion blog at all, this post can still be applied to any kind of blog or website!)
You should start a fashion blog because you are interested in fashion. Now, fashion is a really broad area or topic. You should read my post on How to find your fashion blog niche to get a better idea of what I mean. But in short, fashion varies from personal style, to fashion designing, to fashion brands, to fashion history, to street style, to global fashion, to photography, to sustainable fashion, and the list goes on. (Get your 55 fashion blog niches guide here). So in short, you should start a fashion blog because you are already interested in some element of fashion.
You should start a fashion blog because you want to share your ideas, knowledge, and/or style. Now, you don’t have to post your blog publicly. You don’t even have to promote your blog if you want to keep it within a small group of people. But regardless of how large you want your audience, you should start a fashion blog because you have something you want to share with others.
You should start a fashion blog because you care about a cause and/or you want to bring awareness to specific topic. This is slightly different from the second point because this cause doesn’t have to directly correlate with fashion, while the point above does. What I mean is you can use your fashion blog to directly bring awareness to a cause or a movement. For example, there is a rise in sustainable fashion blogs because these individuals care about the environment, and they want to bring awareness to the importance of caring about the earth. You can use your fashion blog as an outlet to talk about politics, feminism, human trafficking, education, career, motherhood, body positivity, and the list goes on.
You should start a fashion blog because YOU WANT TO! If you are worried about the time commitment, what other people will think, how to manage or how to start, don’t worry! Just start and learn as you go. I’ve already mentioned this but I’ll say it here again: You have nothing to lose. And, if you figure out that you don’t like blogging about fashion, you can at least say you tried and didn’t like. (Otherwise, you’ll probably spend the rest of your life wondering how your life would be different if you did start that fashion blog).
And those, my friends, are a few reasons why I believe you should start a fashion blog. Yes, “fashion” is a saturated niche but even within this saturated niche are unique niches. Start because you want to, start because you can, just start!

I know that by reading other people’s inspirations and stories definitely inspire and motivate me.
