Topshop Blogging Event

Friday, March 25, 2011

Last night I attended Topshop's launch of their 214 magazine. (I wasn't able to get a copy but I'll possibly stop by another time & hopefully they'll have it available.) Anyway, to help launch it, they had two successful bloggers/writers speak: Karen Blanchard of Where Did U Get That and fashion journalist & columnist Indigo Clarke (who writes for FullFrontalFashion, VogueUK.com, LULA magazine, W magazine, and others).

Both were really friendly, entertaining & down-to-earth. They both talked about their experiences & perspectives on blogging and writing; they also discussed tips for bloggers (both new & those who are already blogging).

Some things they touched upon:
  • to join communities like IFB, BlogLovin', Chictopia, etc. to further interact with other bloggers who share the same interests as you or post similar content as you do
  • to join social networking sites like Facebook & Twitter to help you market yourself as a blogger
  • to be unique/true to yourself; don't just write about the latest trends but maybe more so what YOU like at that moment -- your style, your tastes, and just be yourself; don't be afraid to share your opinions & thoughts (it is your blog, after all)
  • post often or consistently so that your readers can follow & come back to visit when they know you posted something
After they spoke about their thoughts, they also answered questions from those in the audience. The event is also happening tonight in NY at Topshop 6-8PM if you'd like to go. I had a great time, and both Karen & Indigo are sweet to chat with.
Forgive how terrible I look! Haha, I wasn't able to dress up or change; I had classes early in the morning until the afternoon, completed a few errands around the city then headed to this event. Even so, love both the outfits on Karen & Indigo - all of it is from Topshop. They look beautiful!

Follow Audrey Allure.
