How many views make you a "top blogger"? Or where is the line between blogger and blogger that gets promotions and offers?

I integrated StumbleUpon, Reddit, Google+, Twitter, and Facebook buttons into almost every page of our site, but Facebook seems to be the one that really gets used, followed by Twitter occasionally.

Be careful about social sites though, because you might get 1200 people showing up who only stay for 5 seconds, and that will really mess with your bounce rate. Quality traffic is more important than mass traffic. At least, that's what we're betting on right now. Our site is a trade publication though, so if you're running, for example, a consumer-targeted shoe blog, it might be a different story.

And uh, what if one actually starts getting legit inquiries from brands about advertising? Has anyone ever peeked at a top blog's media kit before?

It's always the same problem. Which advertising model should we follow ?!

Fashion bloggers don't have Union, so it will be difficult to answer this question.

Check F0F0's posts on advertising, they are very interesting.

Ton's of them in this and the first thread about this topic.

Problem is you need to read this whole thread and the first thread (link to that one is the first post of this thread). The tips are all mixed in ... sort of random.

It's interesting that most of the "top fashion bloggers" people think about were propelled forward by established players and traditional media. In studying where they came from, I have yet to see a real formula except "post often and get help from celebrities."

I think it'd be good if we could compile in one list the tips and tricks of blogging. Maybe I could do that...

Feel free to compile a list taken from all the suggestions in the thread ... it will be a big task, should you decide to take it on.

Also, remember, this is part #2 of this topic. So, be sure to also review the first part (link to Part #1 can be found in the first post of this thread) ... to make sure you haven't missed anyone's ideas.

Um, speaking of advice for bloggers ... was I abosutely the only person who took forever to figure out that little orange Blogger icon, in the bar at the top, will take you directly to your dashboard?! For years, I'd be clicking either the "new post" or "design" links and then clicking "dashboard" from there, which I was annoyed by, because 95% of the time, all I wanted was to get straight to my dashboard ... so when I discovered clicking the Blogger icon could do that ... my mind was blown.

Let me give you an illustration:

I post them using HTML, instead of the photo upload tool.
