a letter to you all RE: IFB

Dear Readers,

I hope to share something with you all. Maybe you already know about this and maybe you don't. It is history in the making. The world of Fashion Blogging is changing.

Have you heard of IFB before? Something tells me you have. Well I discovered them maybe a year ago and never really utilised all the amazing tips and information they have to teach us Fashion bloggers until around 7 or 8 months ago. I now check them daily, read their latest posts and indulge in the wealth of knowledge they have to offer. It has helped my blog more than I would have ever known possible offering advice on all the things that, at times, make my head feel dizzy. When it comes to business, my understanding wasn't too informed when I first started out. Along the way however, my knowledge has grown. It has to because essentially, we are running little businesses.

So my dad runs and owns a small company and has offered me lots of advice but his knowledge is very specific to the area he works in. I started reading and researching the business in blogging on the Internet. Eventually I came across IFB but had no idea what it was all about. A few months after signing up I decided to really look through the website and came across all the things I had been looking for in one place. Questions that had been pulsing through my brain since the birth of Hailes Hearts Fashion. It was like being in a room with everyone person you need to speak to. People you know will be able to answer your questions, or at least give it a good go. Since making this discovery, it has undoubtedly taught me a lot in terms of improving my blog, retaining inspiration and applying the knowledge of business to fashion. I know that some of you aren't fashion bloggers but we read each others blogs because in terms of interests, we aren't one dimensional. I love fashion but I also love reading the amazing on-going stories people post, following a person as they travel and learning to make weird and wonderful things from the craft blogs I read.  IFB will be able to provide all of you with some helpful tips so please give their website a check out.

I was soon be sharing my notes from watching yesterdays LIVE IFB conference. I posted it on here so you all had a chance to watch it. Maybe you viewed it through a different source or maybe you didn't catch any of it but it was filled with inspiring panellists, useful tips and helpful answers to those questions that have been infecting my mind.

I hope you have found this post to have been to some interest. I hope IFB can help you all with blogging as much as they have helped me.

Truly some good tips I noticed from the live feed. Although, I'm not really a fashion blogger, but I like to do what I like to do.

Looking forward to more of your notes.
