We all love bloggers with a fantastic sense of style. And when such a blogger is also capable of making you smile or burst into giggles, that’s just icing on the cake. Here’s how you can add a personal/humorous touch to your posts.
1) Make up a story
You are wearing your prettiest skirt and blouse, you have stunning pictures ready to post but your mind draws a blank at what to write. Spin a yarn! Make up a story about how you met your skirt (just don’t make it as long as HIMYM). Add a fun element to your post. Being silly sometimes helps!
2) Share your thoughts/ opinions
Read an interesting article yesterday? Saw a tweet that sparked off a debate in your mind? You have a few more points to add to someone else’s post?
Make a post out of it (and give credit to the source). If you want to personalize your fashion blog, you don’t always have to talk about fashion. Let your readers into your mind. Let them know your way of thinking, your opinions on issues.
3) Add a bit of humor
Make people laugh. Sarcasm, satire, and witty one-liners – they all work!
4) Make fun of yourself
This is an instant icebreaker. There is nothing more delightful than knowing the other person is as big a klutz as you are. Readers will connect to you and love you instantly. But don’t go overboard and sound like a fool!
5) Skip writing boring and monotonous descriptions about your clothes
“I decided to wear my new shoes for the party. I paired it with so and so and completed the look with this and that…”. I’ve already skipped reading and gone to the next blog after a quick look at your pictures. If you want comments which are more meaningful than just ‘Nice post’ or ‘Awesome outfit’, you’ve got give more meaningful content.
This is my favorite and is totally fun to read.
Had a hilarious conversation with your friend? Overheard two people talk about something really funny?
Writing, “I said” “She said” posts are really fun to read.
Like this one for example.
Monica : Rach, its the visa card people
Rachel : Oh, God ask them what they want!
Monica : Could you please tell me what this is in reference to? Yes hold on.
Umm.. they say there’s been some unusual activity on your account
Rachel : But I haven’t used my card in weeks
Monica : That is the unusual activity
Just don’t quote FRIENDS, but write your own conversation.
Keep it light-hearted and have fun with words!
You are on point – I like blogs that are not super serious and some fun observations and opinions are always nice to read (actually I wrote about a similar topic some time ago :))
Good luck for LALM 🙂 !
good points! so much bloggers only spend attention to their pics they almost forget they also have to actually say something…
