25+ Posts from IFB That Will Take Your Blog to A New Level / by Erin Baynham

  I found the Independent Fashion Bloggers site about 3-4 years ago. I became obsessed with the blogging tips. Obsessed. While the focus is fashion blogging, 90% of the content could apply to any type of blog. (I highly suggest that you subscribe to their email list and get updates on new posts throughout the week.) I've been to two of their conferences (they've got another coming up in September), and each was empowering, insightful and a helluva lot of fun. Those 3 am train trips to NYC were totally worth it, I'm telling you.

This resource is so phenomenal because their isn't always a lot of help with things like this--people just don't like to share sometimes. Here are over 25 links to outstanding articles that will help you throughout your blogging journey!
