Lately I’ve been scavenging the internet with every spare minute I can get trying to gather information about blogging and how to increase traffic to my blog and social media. My eventual hope for LGIP is for it to propel me into the fashion industry, so I may use it as a stepping stone for future endeavors. I wanted to compile a master list of helpful links for any blogger (whether you’ve had for blog for 3 months or 5 years).
