The blogopshere is extremely crowded in this day and age and while that might bring out your competitive side–it can also benefit you.
During a class with Rumi Neely and BryanBoy, Teen Vogue‘s fashion news director Jane Keltner de Valle told us that 70% of the 525 fashion university students who attended Teen Vogue‘s Fashion U have their own blog. That’s 368 blogs, or as you should see it, 368 people to exchange promotions with. One of the main points the pair drove home was that networking with other bloggers was how they got their traffic in the first place. It only takes one other person to create a best-friend duo/blogging partner-in-crime team–like Rumi and Bryanboy–and that person could easily be sitting next to you.
