EXCITING NEWS – International $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!!!

Hey Everyone!!!

Yesterday, I am glad to say that my blog reached its two-year anniversary here on WordPress! Even though I haven’t been able to post regularly for the last six months or so, Adolescent Chic has and will always have a special place in my heart. However, as I grow, I find that the scope of my interest also follows the same path.

In order to commemorate this blog’s anniversary, along with thank you – my loyal subscribers – for all of the support that you have granted me in the last few years, I am hosting a giveaway!!! Today, I will be giving away a $50 Visa Gift Card. The reason that I chose to give away a Visa Gift Card instead of a fashion or beauty related item is because as my interest begin to expand, I also feel obligated to give away a prize that can be used for an array of interests. Here we go:

How I Got 2,000 Followers in Six Months + Giveaway!!!!

Hey Everyone!!!

Following my last post, in which I’m running a giveaway in celebration of my six month blogging anniversary, a lot of you commented asking about how I reached 2,000 followers on my blog. Here we go:

Image

I started my blog on July 27th, 2013 after being inspired by Beth from Polish Influenza. I had always wanted to start a fashion blog, however, I never really had the confidence to start; I always worried that no one would read it. I decided on the name “Adolescent Chic” due to my concentration on teen/young adult fashion and beauty trends. My following stats are as follows:

WordPress.com Followers: 1,259

Bloglovin Followers: 545

Blogger Followers: 300

Total Followers: 2,104

(Before I start, I love all of my followers!!!)

Tip #1: Join a Blogging Network

This is definitely the main avenue that changed the amount of followers I had. When I originally started my blog, I had absolutely no fashion blog connections or relationships with other bloggers. This all changed when I joined the Independent Fashion Bloggers Network. Here, I met thousands (literally!) of different bloggers who shared the same love of fashion.

Tip #2: Be open to advice

One of the defining moments of my blogging career was after my Hanna Marin blogpost. One of my followers told me how much she loved my blog, but recommended that I include more pictures to balance the writing. After I took this advice, my followers grew exponentially! Make sure that you balance the amount of pictures with your writing!

Tip #3: Make Relationships with Fashion Companies

Now, most bloggers that I know are too shy to reach out to fashion companies due to their lack of followers. DO NOT BE AFRAID!!! If you never try and reach out, whether it be people or businesses, you’ll never get that ‘yes’. Companies that I have worked with over the last few months include:

Classic Sugar Boutique 

In Love With Fashion 

Brilliant Earth: Wisteria Collection

Black Up Cosmetics

Prom Dress

Tip #4: Post Consistently + Social Media

The photo above can be found here. This is the fool proof method of gaining followers: blog on a consistent basis! I have seen time and time again male and female bloggers who blog less than twice a month who wonder why they lose followers. Followers become frustrated when you don’t update often, so find a realistic schedule to update your blog (I try to blog at least twice a week).

Along with this, keep your social media connections updated. I suggest opening a twitter account, Facebook page, Polyvore account and Pinterest Account for your blog.

Thank You so much for reading this and remember to enter my LORAC PRO Palette Giveaway here!!!

This is Maria from Amriaa’s Blog. You can find and follow her blog here. Maria is an stunning young lady who not only shows proficiency in fashion-related endeavors, but who is also a Medical-School student. I was so surprised when I learned that Maria was not a full time blogger, as her pictures are so clear while her work looks professional. Maria posts about fashion, makeup and hair tutorials. Here is some of her work:
