Some bloggers a drawn toward bright, vibrant colours. Others use filters to make photos look darker. Whatever they opt for, they know theme is important: it makes those 'grams easily recognizable and creates a uniform look on their feed.

Yes, bloggers do take photos with their phones — sometimes. But the majority of pics you see were really shot beforehand with a professional camera, like a Canon, then edited to perfection before posting.

3 Post Often

It's not enough to post once a week: followers want that daily dose of style! Like fashion blogs, you don't need to post something "new" every day. Just save photos on your phone and share them later on!

3 Find the Light

It's tempting to snap away in your bedroom or at a bar, but there's a reason most bloggers shoot during the day: natural light is the best light. Consider the sunshine your own personal spotlight.

5 Try out Hashtags

Even established bloggers use hashtags to boost those "likes" — they just write them in the comments section. After you post a photo with your chosen caption, repeatedly type one symbol — such as "." or "*" — for the first few lines (to ensure the comment stays hidden). Then, hashtag away, using popular ones like #currentlywearing, #thatsdarling, or #flashesofdelight along with your typical #ootd.

6 Mix Things up

It's nice to have variety on your feed, so alternate between simple photos, boomerangs, and quotes to keep things interesting.

7 See the Bigger Picture

When someone new discovers your feed, they're not going to click on photos one by one. They'll likely scroll through your page first — which means you should be curating something visually appealing. Is it your color theme that draws them in? Do you keep things uniform with a white boarder? Is every third post a quote? It's definitely something to consider!
