    These are all really good tips! I haven’t approached brands because I really want to improve myself as a writer and there’s also a few things I want to do first, like gaining a loyal following. However, I really liked this list and will definitely be bookmarking it for the future!

    This is a great post with awesome advice! My blog is fairly new and my following is pretty low so I havent ventured into reach out to brands as of yet. Saving this info for when I do!!

    Hello Hello!!

    Great tips, I especially agree with giving them (the brand) as much info in a short amount of space as possible and help them see a vision for a collaboration rather than leaving it open-ended.

    On another note, this question is for you about working with a photographer to build a portfolio of images for you to use for blog content and social media. How much does your photographer charge and how often do you use him/her for fresh content? I’m really at this point of having to decided how much and how often to spend on getting some additional content photographed with ME in them.

    Any insight is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
