Social Media

"Why are ecologists and environmentalists so feared and hated? This is because in part what they have to say is new to the general public, and the new is always alarming."

If you've been Pinteresting lately, you've probably noticed a trend about blogging advice.  Just scrolling through my homepage, I've seen everything from "How to make your blog go viral", to "Tips and Tricks for expanding your social media contest", to "What to write about" and everything in between.

Of what I've read, two things stand out: first, this article on Venus trapped in Mars about being a no-reply blogger on Google+ (guilty as charged), which I found after reading the Jets and a Brunette article on blogging mistakes (I was 3 for 3); and secondly, the advice from The B Bar Blog.

The latter advice really resinated with me.  The author mentioned that you have to be unique when you blog, and that you should write about what you know.

As much as I love fashion, I don't know a lot about it.

But I do know (or am starting to learn) about the environment.  As an environmental studies major, I've endured readings on ethical consumerism, environmentally friendly products, and lifestyle accommodations on a near weekly basis for the past year and a bit (I thought enviro tied in with fashion better than criminology; what would I write about then, don't shoplift?).

So I've decided to start a new series: Eco2 (Eco Squared).

The idea behind my new blog posts is that you can be fashionable while being both budget conscious (economically friendly) while doing good for the environment (ecologically friendly).  Hence, Eco2.

Of course, not all of my posts will be based in this new series, but I'll be starting these posts in the coming weeks.

Until next time,

xoxo K
