Does Blogging Make You Shop More?
I have seen some bloggers saying that blogging makes them shop more b/c they feel pressured to keep new looks for their readers. I beg to differ. LONG before I ever decided to blog I had a shopping problem......I think blogging and reading other blogs has actually helped to curb my spending (ok I still haven't really curbed my spending), but I used to be notorious for wearing things once and never wearing them again. Blogging inspires me to go closet shopping and wear old things in new ways so I don't feel so bad about buying things. Sometimes I even see a blogger in an item that I own and say hey I haven't worn that in so long!!! I would definitely say that blogging has helped me manage my wardrobe a lot better and it's also inspired me to stop hoarding so many old shoes. Blogging also inspired me to thrift more.......b/c curvier women tend to migrate to the same places a lot of curvy bloggers end up with the same looks so I love thrifting b/c it's easy on the pockets and you don't have to worry about seeing an outfit styled the exact same way you envisioned it before you ever post a pic of it...........
Does being a fashion blogger help /harm you? As a reader do bloggers make you shop more? Comment below.
Until Next Time,
