BLOGS THAT HAD ME AT HELLO

There is no better way to ensure I will not follow your blog than to post a comment saying "Follow my blog." I know increasing traffic to your blog is one of the more challenging aspects in establishing yourself as a blogger, but it is no excuses to "follow for follow" - it is tacky, not to mention annoying. Work on your blog content and loyal followers, who actually care about what you have to say, will come in time. Now, promoting your blog to people you think would enjoy reading it is an entirely different thing. Just please, people - it is about the blog you are proud of not how many people "follow" but do not even read it! This all being said, I welcome comments, positive or constructive criticism; and if you think your blog would be of my interest or any of my blog readers leave a link to your blog so we can check it out.

I had no intentions for this post to be a rant, rather to share the blogs I have been loyal to since the moment I came across them. They are in the order of who I have been following the longest. 


Shop with Jenna: Her name is Jenna, from Vancouver, and the content is primarily fashion. I have been entertained by what this girl has to say since she had a YouTube Chanel and her blog was For the Love of Retail! I found her by searching "Aritzia Haul" on YouTube, I think back in 2011. Things have changed, and I have never tired of her OOTD's, hauls and sales (she shops ALOT), wish lists, reviews, life updates, moves and home tours, and of course, closet reconstructions. Since I have been following her for so long it is like I am always rooting for her to find happiness when her life is a challenge and find success when she is lost. I do not even know this person! But she works hard to better herself through life's tribulations and she is beautiful in and out with a big heart, she really cares about her blog and followers, and ALWAYS looks fabulous! If you love luxurious shoes, bags, and homes (especially closets) - check out her blog, you are going to love it. Oh wait, how did I not mention her pugs! She is defiantly a fur mommy with the most adorable pictures of her pug, Pablo.

Cocktails and Luxury: Her name is Mel, from Montreal, and she is surrounded by fashion around the clock. I also found her on YouTube but by searching "Louis Vuitton Collection" probably a year ago. I do not think she intended to grow her YouTube Chanel when she began since the visual and audio quality of her videos were pretty poor. It is a testament to how awesome she is that so many people love her and what she has to say without the video quality most YouTubers have now - and I am only saying this because she just got a new laptop and camera for her birthday, so that is a thing of the past. Between her Blog, Instagram, and YouTube you are constantly being updated. She does vlogs around Montreal (my favourite city in Canada), OOTD's, reviews (mostly on bags), wish lists, blog sales, but what is best about her is she will try and post responses to her comments as best as possible. She has an amazing life with amazing friends and family surrounding her and I love to keep updated as though it is my reality tv. I probably like her more as a person than a blogger but only because she is a genuinely good, down-to-earth person.


Boobs and Loubs: Her name is Morgan, from Los Angeles, and the content is anything relevant to her life at that moment. I found her indirectly though sarahmh__'s Instagram, to dorothywang's Instagram, to finding out about #RKOBH (halfway through season one), to watching the show and finally realizing she has a blog! Even though she is one of the more famous bloggers I follow, I sure did have to work to come across her. I am glad I did. I added her blog to my phone's homepage as soon as I found it and have been checking it regularly for updates ever since. Her posts are short, usually about one thing, but her personality is why I read them. She is so funny; always seeing the irony in things and comically commenting her way though life. Nothing is off limits or  too embarrassing and she never holds back her honest opinion, even if it is harsh.
