How to Become a Teenage Fashion Blogger
What Does a Teenage Fashion Blogger do?
A fashion blogger will create a blog that is run by themselves or with a few friends where they can post about the general topic of fashion. This can range from current trends, tips and tricks, to whatever that you like to write about. Because a fashion blogger is self-employed, your pay will range from how much you work.
Your responsibilities as a fashion blogger are very complicated as the entire blog will be run by yourself. This being said, you will have to research the topic you will write about, write posts, edit and proofread posts, and respond to feedback from your audience. Since you will be doing a lot of writing on fashion, it will be good to be a fashion fan and have a general knowledge of fashion.
How Much Does a Teenage Fashion Blogger Get Paid?
As an article and blog writer just getting started, you probably won’t earn money. This is because you don’t have an audience in the beginning, so you won’t earn income from ad revenue or affiliates. Ads and affiliate partnerships will determine your pay, so the more viewers you have, the more money you will make. After a few months of consistent blogging with good content, you will begin to build an audience and then you’ll start to earn money. Professional fashion bloggers will have a very popular and successful blog that will earn them a lot of money, usually thousands of dollars each month, if the blog is well maintained. So, when starting out as a teen fashion blogger be prepared to not make anything for 6-12 months. But, when you do begin to earn money, it will become significant as long as you have a lot of website traffic.
How Can I Get Started as a Teenage Fashion Blogger?
1. Before you begin, you’ll want to polish up your writing skills. If you want to have the largest audience reading your blog, you’ll need to write well. People won’t want to read badly written posts, so you want to make sure your posts are error proof and have a good writing style.

To polish up your writing skills, you might want to take high school electives or college courses in writing. There are plenty of courses you could take in person, but if that isn’t appealing, you can also take courses online.

This covers the basic of article writing, which can also be applied to your blog as article writing and blog writing are quite similar.
