Some people just get famous through blogging and immedietly they just shoot to stardom without even completing any grades or school..is that advisable?

Least advisable, i’d say. Yes, some people get lucky, but overall blogging is more of a hobby.

It really depends. Very few people REALLY make it out. Like Tavi Gavinson from thestylerookie, she got pretty damn lucky. She gets free gifts from designers, goes to shows all the time, but she’s still generally a normal kid.

And then there’s Cory Kennedy…popular for sneaking out of her house to go to clubs, get photographed, being on magazines, blogging and then had to be sent away to a private school. Where is she now? I believe she’s semi-working for Nylon magazine and still photographing and blogging.

Really, those were lucky shots. I’d just stick with it part-time.

Agreeing with the above comments… i’d think it was very very rare for a blogger to make it big so that they are able to blog full time or be able to support themselves just from blogging!!

And the ones who do make it big how long can it last as a full time career? It’s a relatively new phenomenon so we don’t yet know for sure if it can be sustained for 10 or 20 years like a traditional career. What happens when people and sponsors lose interest and move on to the next hot blog? A truly successful blogger must someday parlay their blogging fame into something more sustainable like styling, designing, editing etc. And without a solid back ground of some sort, that could be difficult. I started a blog very recently to promote my handmade shop on etsy. I hope to someday support myself through selling the stuff I make and collect but not by blogging itself. I am also a college grad and old by this site’s standards.

Blogging, like just about every other career in media (art, journalism, television, acting, etc), is very sensitive to demand: the support of sponsors and ad sales and how much people are reading your work and giving you views. You may have a good thing going now, but it could end in an instant, and you have to always have the next step in mind.

Unfortunately even the “institutionalized” careers blogging can directly lead to— like style columnist in a magazine— aren’t always the most secure positions, either. It’s definitely wise to have some other skills to fall back on (and quickly!) in case blogging ceases to pay the bills and it hasn’t brought you to anything else. I would NEVER encourage to cease their education to blog full-time. Make some money while you’re also in school, sure, but don’t hedge your bets like that!

Plus maybe it’s just me, but the most interesting style blogs I’ve read are written by people who do something else besides just blog about style. I think it gives them more perspective and flavor to their work.

Anyone who can be commited to a blog full time and make people want to read it, should do it. I see no problem with not completing an education to be a blogger. If the person makes it than their education or whatever helped them get there. If they don’t make it than hopefully they learn a lesson. I’m all for people learning lessons on their own. Well maybe except for meth.

i do it part time….i have a life. i say just do it as much as you have time for, without letting it impact the rest of your life. theres no point in looking good if you spend all of your free time in front of a computer blogging. people get too wrapped up in it if you ask me. just make sure you’re having fun.

wrensandroses, we are on the same wavelength! probably no coincidence that we’re also both about 10 years older than everyone else on here ;)

You don’t have to blog full time to become famous or make money. I guess once you get recognition and more visits then you should step up the posting regime but full time work isn’t needed for that.

I blog part time at Feeling Stylish, am not particularly well known and I make about £150 a month from my blogging activities along with loads and loads of free stuff such a make up and clothes.

I think it’s great as a hobby :) If you’re one of the lucky ones and get famous from it GO FOR IT! But I would prefer to have an education first as something to fall back on!
