Future Plans: Finding a Wider Internet Audience for “Every Day Style: Fashion for the Mainstream”

On August 1, 2017 when I started my new blog, Every Day Style: Fashion for the Mainstream (https://www.victoriawordpress587.wordpress.com), and the accompanying website, Lookin’ Good, Feelin’ Good (https://www.lookingoodfeelingoodblog.wordpress.com) to help readers, and myself, coordinate clothing for daily activities and realistic budgets little did I know stores like Target and Walmart would step it up so much with such great buys for regular people, and online companies, like http://www.thredup.com, would offer the same type of quality second-hand merchandise found at Goodwill Thrift Stores and Council Thrift Shops.

After talking to a lot of people, at work and around the city, I kept hearing the same complaint about how difficult it was to find attractive clothing for plus sized women, older people and those with financial restrictions. Now it looks like there might be hope among the those listening in the industry. I hope to be one who is continuously on this track.

So far I’ve written about 10 blogs, and plan to add more about fashion coordination, great accessory finds and other related tips in the future. Recently I created a professional page on Facebook, “Keepin’ Up With Vicqui,”@victoria2thread (username) where I plan to add my updates about my blogs regularly.

Facebook App Review: The Honolulu Star-Advertiser Facebook Post Adds Another Chapter to United’s On-going Saga

I believe the Facebook app is the best for getting news breaking stories out, especially for ones that’re on-going, and have a variety of angles. In the Honolulu Star-Advertiser article that stated,  “United mistakenly flies Kansas-bound dog to Japan”, Facebook also consistently recorded how many people were “talking about it” and provided a link to the full article, along with a previous one about United and another unfortunate dog incident.

In addition to the spare writing, the story was also quite witty and easily shared online. Facebook,  known for “allowing users to engage publicly (via postings on walls) or privately (via messaging with readers on a story), is the perfect venue for this.

Personally, whenever I want to share something quickly, whether it’s about a LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) symposium I’m attending or a new thrift store haul I’ve just scored, I’ve discovered it’s the most effective way to share with my friends, family, contacts and the public.
