Blog to Watch: Tweet
Manchester-based fashion blogger Clare Potts shares the secrets behind her quirky site, Tweet. Having blogged for the last five years, she has now established her own voice in the fashion blogosphere. With varied posts featuring up and coming designers to celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Tweet is sure to titillate the fashion-lover's eye.
"My blog started as a way to showcase a little jewellery collection I had made when I was in Sixth Form, the collection was called Tweet as the majority of the designs were birds, my blog developed and changed but the name stuck."
"I'm based in Manchester now after growing up in the middle of Cheshire. I've been blogging for about 5 years now, it seems like such a long time ago it all started."
"I monetise my blog if a good opportunity arises, but only when the product is something I would usually write about anyway. I don't agree with monetising for the sake of it though, I'm not a fan of plastering my blog with flashy ads."
"I love that I can write about anything that is style related and it will fit in with the 'fashion' theme, it's great to have a place where I can rant about nothing in particular! I love the community too, I don't think I've met a fashion blogger I don't like."
"The first blog I started reading was Style Bubble, back in the day when she was in her bedroom with the flash covering up her face, I spent literally hours reading her backlog of posts, I especially love the DIY posts. Nowadays I love Wish Wish Wish, The Cherry Blossom Girl, Gemfatale, Calivintage, What Olivia Did and many, many more. I really wish I had more time to read blogs."
