After almost four years of blogging, I’ve decided to make some changes around here. As you can tell, this world is FULL of bloggers. Blogging has become such a “thing” that now, everyone has one.. which is both exciting & annoying. It’s exciting because I am so supportive of girls following their dreams, & if carving out a creative space on the interweb is their dream, I’m all for it. & it’s annoying because it’s hard to not compare yourself to other influencers sharing the same space with you, especially those who have a massive following. #respect
Now, let’s talk about these changes. I see a lot of people becoming successful straight off of Instagram which is GREAT. But, will Instagram be around forever? No clue, but I know my domain URL will be.. & so will this blog, dammit. It’s important for me to be consistently posting on Allie Wears because THIS is my main source of blogging, & Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, are just branches off of my cute lil’ tree. So, expect more posts!
In addition, I plan to be way more engaging on Instagram stories and Snapchat. I noticed over the week of Thanksgiving that items I featured in my Instagram story (like these boots) were getting 5x more clicks than the items I link to on my blog. I also updated my blog’s header to include a “Shop my Instagram” tab, which makes it easy to shop the items I’m wearing on Instagram incase you miss my Instagram story.
& last but not least, I want to be more personal! Which is why this blog post is dedicated to everything but what I’m wearing. I’ve noticed lately that I am visiting blogs that feature tips, tricks, or even an FAQ so I can learn more about the blogger I
envy admire instead of their clothes. In this digital age, it’s really about connecting with the individual, whether that be a consumer or a reader, at a deeper level than just the surface.
& as always, thanks for coming along for the ride! You can shop my look above below.
