Hi everyone! I’ve been here on chictopia for almost 1 year, and I finally decided to create my own blog, and a facebook page. but how can I announce it to my friend and followers, and invite them to have a look? because what I mostly see is people who come to your chicblog and leave a standard comment : <<amazing>> and they immediately tell the real reason for why they’ve left a comment : << by the way, good news, got a new outfit/post/blog/…, check it out if you want!>> and I hate that. I never answer, I never go to their blog, because I think that this kind of comment is so fake and hypocritical, and they even simply copy it to all the followers! It’s forbidden to do so. But how can you sincerely invite them then?! I mean there are so many blogs, and I guess that normally when you follow someone on chictopia, you go to their blogs too, because you love their style… what would you do? See I don’t even feel comfortable enough to promote my blog now at the end of this post and to leave the link. maybe I just don’t have a commercial mind :p

thanks for your help guys!

Personally I don’t think there’s a way to sincerely invite people to take a look at your blog, but here’s the best ways I’ve found to get traffic to my blog.
(I don’t claim to be an expert, I only have about 340 followers myself!)

Follow other bloggers, and leave genuine, well thought out comments on their blogs. Show them your appreciate what they’re writing, and include your link at the end of the comment. Don’t ask them to check out your blog, like you said- that just annoys people.

If you haven’t already, set up a twitter account and follow other fashion bloggers. Some people will follow you back, and you can promote your posts by tweeting them! Make sure you tweet other things aside from just new blog posts though.

Be active on fashion forums like Chictopia and Lookbook. More people will check out your profile, and hopefully click your blog link.

Include your blog link in the description when you post things to Chictopia. Perhaps something like ‘Read more on my blog..’

Your blog is lovely, so don’t worry! It just takes some time to build followers!
I hope that helps!

Your blog really is lovely! Yeah I think that the main thing to start is to really get into a blogging community-post nice comments on other peoples blogs (definitely not the just “check out my blog!” variety!), post in forums. Giveaways (if they’re good) can also work, but then that depends on whether you’re willing to spend money to get your blog out there.

Thanks for your advices! Well I’d like to do some giveaways, but they would not be very attractive, I don’t have that much money to buy designer clothes, as famous bloggers do. Some of my friends on facebook were very nice, they posted a link to my blog to tell their friends. I hope this can be helpful if someone else have the same issue with announcing ^^ I decided to be the more honest I can. I leave comments only if I really have something to say and if I really like what I’m commenting on, and then I just add a link to my blog / facebook page. I follow only if I like. I know this may not be the most simple and faster way to get followers, but at least I don’t feel hypocritical and annoying as you said :)
