TURN YOUR BLOG INTO A BUSINESS, INSPIRED BY 3 DEDICATED DIGITAL INFLUENCERS
The word blogger is easily thrown around these days. It’s now a word used to describe millions of individuals who express themselves over the internet. Whether it be through style, beauty, photography, travel or lifestyle…
However, if you have ever watched the reality show Fashion Bloggers, Margaret Zhang of Shinebythree.com sums it up by explaining that having a blog shouldn’t be your final destination in life, it should be used as a platform and a stepping stone that leads you to greatness, because the question that is more than often asked is — is being a blogger really a profession?
At The Digital Dose, we like to call ‘Bloggers’ digital influencers because these pristine and untouchable websites are growing stronger by the day and have become most people’s go-to for inspiration. We have put together 3 of our favourite influencers who took the blogging game to a whole new level and turned their blogs into successful businesses. Let’s begin…
