Yesterday my day started super early, since I had to be at the Westergasterras in Amsterdam at 11AM for the second edition of BlOG CLASS EVENT hosted by Yara Michels. A lot of you may know her from the super successful blog This Chick's Got Style! I was extremely excited to meet the girl behind one of the biggest Dutch (and international) fashion blogs out there. And to hear from her personally what worked best for her to get where she is now. It was definitely an inspiring morning!
Yara divided her biggest tips and tricks into seven categories:
01. Finding your Blog Niche
02. Creating an Editorial Calendar
03. Visuals (Pictures)
05. Attracting & Keeping Readers
06. Social Media
07. LET'S TALK BUSINESS (Turning your blog into a business).
Each category was equally informative and I took her tips very seriously. I have about 10 pages of notes to proof it. After her presentation was done, Yara recommended a few books (including her own) to help grow our blog even further, and did a little Q&A. Afterwards, she also took the time to have a chat with all the bloggers and snap a few pictures. She is so humble and truly an inspiration to me. And if you check her resume and see all the things she has accomplished with her blog so far, you too would aspire to be just like her! :)

Yara was so appreciative and thanked us the entire morning for attending her Blog Class Event and supporting her and her blog. But really, I want to thank her for giving smaller bloggers like myself the opportunity to learn what it really takes to make a blog successful. I can't wait to start implementing her tips into my blog's potential.
