Recently, I overheard a conversation on the streetcar, and it went something like this, "Oh my god, EVERYONE'S a blogger now. Like, maybe I'll just become a blogger and make so much money." In the year 2017, the ideal career seems to be becoming a fashion blogger or influencer. I mean, when you read about all of the glamourous events they attend, travelling, the great clothes, and of course, the money—who wouldn't think that it was a dream job?
The popularity of the fashion blogger might not be dwindling any time soon, but there are certainly a few bloggers who have gone above and beyond the #ootd and have become some serious boss ladies. Let's not forget that while being a blogger looks glamourous, it takes a lot of hard work and some serious hustle. Here are a few standout bloggers who have built successful businesses from their blogs. Also, BRB, I'm about to start blogging.
