So I am wanting to start a wordpress fashion blog, but after consulting with some of my friends, they said no one reads fashion blog these days anymore, better to focus on creating social media accounts like facebook, instagram etc I thought that to be a blogger of cause you should have a blog that you can link back to and write content with attachment photos and videos. Otherwise wouldn't it just be photos and videos on social media accounts? I personally think that blog should be the core and social media should be the platform that promotes it.
Facebook would like you to believe that everything just happens on FB and you don't need any content outside of the FB eco system. I can absolutely tell you that's not the case. There are hundreds of thousands of people putting stuff up on instagram / FB and that does not make them influencers. If your goal is to become a blogger then you need a blog :) If your goal is just to become some sort of an influencer, then you can become one on any of the SocialMedia platforms and you don't really need a blog, but in my opinion, when you have your own blog you free yourself from any one medium as you actually own the content, the way it's displayed and where it will be featured. To summarize, I would always start with good content and you might as well get a blog. There is no down side.
