Fashion Blogging

Web

  • Smashing Magazine is one of my absolute favorite web design sites – tons of useful information not only about the technical side of web design, but great creative inspiration as well.  Whether you’re a novice or an expert, you’ll find something useful on their site.  Check out their selection of free icons – a lot of options for social media icons and more (some even commercial free) for your blog.
  • Webtreats on MySiteMyWay is a treasure trove of free resources like patterns and icons – free even for commercial use.  One of my new faves!
  • Independent Fashion Bloggers has tips & resources for fashion bloggers.
  • Hootsuite manages all your social media in one spot.
  • SnackTools offers a variety of free, no-coding-required widgets that are easy to customize and embed in your blog.  I’m partial to the flipping books, an elegant and interactive magazine-like widget.
  • Da Button Factory makes clean, professional buttons with a simple interface.  Granular controls make this tool highly customizable.
  • If you blog on your own domain, use web analysis tools to optimize your site.
    • WebSiteOptimization.com is a free tool that offers good suggestions on how to better optimize your site.
    • Google Analytics is the best free analytics tool to check on how your visitors interact with your site.
  • Google Keyword Tool helps you find keywords for SEO and tagging your posts.
  • Play around with the analysis tools at Google Insights to learn more about demographics and keywords, especially pertaining to categories, geographic locations, and seasonal / time oriented data.
