I got this one at many Christmas parties this year: "so Elien, tell me, how can one actually make money by blogging?". Good question, distant family member! I notice people always ask themselves this, and people tend to be divided in two groups: the ones that have no idea how monetizing a blog works and think all a blogger does is posing for pictures in the middle of the street, only for themselves, and the ones that think bloggers are multimilionairs that get everything for free, make loads of dough and never have to buy a single mascara or pair of black booties again. It's not so black and white, the mysterious world of fashion blogging, and I'm here to shed some light on the topic. Ready to talk money? Here we go!
