Be friendly.
Use an about page or bio to introduce yourself to new visitors. Give information that your readers or brands both want to know: your location, the type of content you create, and anything else that defines who you are! Again, present this information in a way that aligns with your personal voice so both fans and brands can quickly understand what you’re all about.

Be Original.
Go beyond curating content and products and focus on creating your own original content—words, photos, videos, art, and more! Think of yourself as a creator and make what you love.


Be polished.
Blogs and social media are extremely visual platforms and high quality photography has become the expectation. Even if your main camera is an iPhone, make sure your images are sharp and in focus with consistent image sizing across posts. Review content for spelling, punctuation and typos before positing.
