This post is in homage to all the smaller bloggers out there hustling in a crowded industry. Sometimes we can get caught up in the numbers game or put too much focus on the few well established bloggers and forget that there is a wealth of talent that largely goes under the radar. There are so many I would have loved to include that I’m thinking about turning this in to a series of posts. Let me know if that is something you’d like to see! I had a hard time narrowing it down to just 5 this time but I had to recognise these lovely ladies first because they have been a huge support and inspiration to me on my blogging journey.
I find myself going back to Chloe’s blog more and more. Her content takes blogging to a new level in my opinion. The topics she writes about are so individual, she looks at the industry from a completely different point of view. It’s usually the imagery that attracts me to a blog post but in Chloe’s case it is definitely her writing, not that her images aren’t stunning too! Nearly all the topics she writes about are thought provoking and make me want to know her opinion. Not every blogger would have the guts to take on some of the topics she writes about but she does it well with wit and charm. I’m sure Chloe is destined for great things in the near future.
Here are a few posts of Chloe’s that I really enjoyed reading:
I love the endearing way Holly writes. She’s unapologetically open and honest about her life which is such a refreshing change in our over edited world. Although I’m a bit older than Holly I can totally relate to her posts now or remember experiencing similar thoughts and feelings when I was her age. When I scroll through some of Holly’s posts they remind me of an editorial spread in a fashion magazine. Her modelling really helps bring her blog to life and gives it a maturity beyond her years.
These are my favourite posts from The Simple Things:
This girl is an inspiration to all us blogging business women. Not only does she have a super cute blog but she’s also the founder of Blogging Gals, an online community to help recognise and promote smaller bloggers. Blogging Gals and Zaineb have been a huge help to me since I started blogging. You can really see her passion for the industry in everything she does. She gives the best skincare advice, or any advice for that matter. If you feel unmotivated or are struggling for inspiration, that will all change after a 5 minute chat with her! And to top it all, she’s also one of the kindest bloggers you’ll ever meet.
These are a couple of posts that I enjoyed reading:
If you’re not new to my blog you’ll have heard me talk about the importance of being true to yourself and your style. Layla is such a good example of this, she stays consistant across her blog and all her social media. She’s a great example of how building your own brand in blogging can help establish a loyal following. You always know what you’re going to get with Layla! That level of consistency and individuality makes Layla one of my favourite bloggers. Any time I need some Instagram Baddie inspiration she is my go to.
Here are a couple of my favourite posts:
Having one of those ‘I have nothing to wear’ days? Well Patricia is your girl. Her Instagram and the fashion section of her blog is a catalogue of outfits that literally anyone could wear. From the latest trends to classic pieces she has a post on it all. I can’t imagine the sheer amount of time and effort she puts in to creating her outfit posts and Instagram feed. But the section of her blog I love the most is the travel category. Her post on the Maldives that she captured on her iPhone reminds me that you don’t need all the bells and whistles to produce good content.
