How to become a Fashion Blogger & earn money online

Before we proceed to answer "how to start fashion blog first we should understand what is Blogger? (of course one who writes blogs),How do bloggers make money online? How to make a blog?
Today there is a GAP in the fashion blogging area, if you have a passion, you have guts to write something new, you want to be connected to the audience, you have good sense of fashion and you want to be followed by the millions then come forward and become a blogger of this exciting field. 
Gone are the days when people were writing blogs for creative satisfaction only, today  blogging is the main source of income for thousands of professionals.
For eg-  Caira is a fashion blogger (the blond Salad) who earns millions of dollars a month( and please note she is neither a fashion designer nor a fashion journalist).
Many professionals think that blogging was much beneficial  before 5 years, but still today there are chances for being successful in this career as numbers of mobile users and wi-fi enabled cities are increasing day in day out ,  There is comparatively  low competition in fashion blogging area so its right time to start a fashion blogging and make money through online advertiser (Google Adsence)
What is Fashion Blogger?
There are tow types of Fashion blogger. Personal fashion blogger- one who writes about him/her - self. They write about own dressing style and also about lifestyle.
Second type is one who write about tips and updates (fashion field) they are not focussed about own lifestyle. If you are good looking and have very fine dressing sense then you can start as a personal style blogger.  

 How Money comes from blog 
It depends on the number of readers/viewers see your page. Once you start blogging, search engine (yahoo, google, bing) will show your page to the readers (if key words are matching from your content), slowly you will get readers/viewer for blog. After six months of blogging your blog will be eligible for Adsense (adsense is the product of google through which most of the website gets advertisements) configuring Adsense in your blog, automatically you will get ads from different companies/brands ( type of ads which you will receive, depends on the contents of your blogs) Google will pay you on the per click (on advertisement) basis, generally 0.11 $  to 0.5 $ each click. There are many factors which affect your earning (for eg- targeted key words, no.of page view, viewers location,  types of ad you are showing..etc), we will discuss these things one by one later. 
After certain balance You will be asked to configure your payment detail, Whatever money you will earn, will be credited to your bank account at the end of the month. 
For more detail you can visit Google page "Make money with your blog"

How to start Blog

There are number of options to start a blog. First you need to identify the area of your interest.  There are two main option to start a blog one is through (i) Hosted account and second is (ii) Make your own website.

1. Hosted Account
For beginners hosted account is always good, Hosted account means you need not to invest a single penny, they ( host- blogspot,wordpress...etc ) will do all the things by themselves. You have all the liberties to play with these accounts, its all free, search engine  have automated  SEO system therefore no worry about search engine enlisting or key word ranking, No need to be a technically sound, there is no need to hire professionals for maintenance of your site, You can't even imagine how  easy it is to write a blog, its as simple as you write a mail. later you can redirect your blogspot page to your custom domain too. For eg.  www.yourname.com 
- I prefer blogspot.com becouse it is a product of google which is world's largest search engine so no need to do SEO
- Therefore, to start a blog - the one and only one thing you need to do is to create a gmail account(No need to create if you already have )
- sign in to gmail (in chrome) 
- at extreme top right corner you will see  different product of google ,  
click on blogger

you will be redirected to the new page

Now you need to give your blog a title it may be your name or you can start with your brand name, select your url address (try to keep it short because only first 70 letters html code is searchable) then go for template and select one, You can customize your template (color,width, style..etc) for more help you can go for google help centre here  " Change the Design of your Blog" then just click on create a blog. Now
You will be redirected to the "blogger dashboard" yes now you can start blogging

2.     Make your own website
If you are a professional (having knowledge of code/HTML/Java Script, or you can afford a professional for technical help then choose this method. (i)Purchase a domain name,  (ii) hosting space, (iii) SSL certificate ( godaddy.com sells all these things on early renewable basis and they do very fare business )  and hire  SEO(search engine optimization ) team. In this method financial support is needed. On an average  estimated yearly expenses will be as per below;
-         Domain- USD  8 $ = INR 450-500 (depending upon .com, in, .edu)
-         Hosting package-  50 $=  INR 3000 approx
-         SSL Security (optional for beginner)=  30 $=  INR 2000  
-         SEO – 100 $ per month= 1200$ PA=   INR 80000
-         Website design and upload – 300 $ to 350 $ (it is one time investment)
SEO is an important for individual website, otherwise search engine (Google/yahoo/bing) result will not include your piece of writing, it may come on the search result after 10 page ( to come on the first page of search result,  SEO team work on the key words enlisting and ranking) and your reader will not be able to read your website.
Benefits of making your own website-
-         If you have every thing( domain, hosting, SEO ) that means you have all the commands in your hand. You can advertise the company you want, you can quote money according to your wish and demand. You can advertise in any format (banner, pay per click) in short you have all the authorities and controls to run ads & make money. In this way you can earn more money than the next (hosted-blogger, wordpress) one.
Drawback of making your own website
-         Overall if I calculate, you need to invest a huge amount at the beginning stage, so in my opinion this option  can be avoided for certain period of time, once you achieve a milestone , start earning  handsome amount then you can go for your own website.
So, what are you waiting for, go and grab the opportunities. 

As a beginner you must be having too many queries, please feel free to ask the question (you can ask in comment) I would love to answer your query.
