I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Several readers emailed me asking for tips on dipping into the style-blogging community, where to start and how to attract readers. I must say, I’m not in the deep end myself, but I can give one simple advice: Start from a community stylesite like Fabsugar, Lookbook, Chictopia or Modepass.

The best way to gather supporters and regular readers is from someplace where they know your style well and love you for it, then you can wade into a bit deeper area and contemplate in participating in the war between Blogger and WordPress. You may not even choose to move if you settle in and become comfortable with the audiences and method of blogging.

I personally moved out from a community because I didn’t enjoy being ‘graded’ for what I wear, and I wanted a proper blogger-to-reader relationship, but I’d still gained a lot of friends  and readers from using the site for a few months. For those like myself, I recommend Modepass, where I sense it’s less about the giving points to an outfit, and more about making an image for yourself.



Make your own personal header, determine the background colours and highlight colours, and then start posting outfit/inspiration photos. It’s that simple.

Thing is, I have something for those still deciding if they should give it a go. Modepass contacted me with an opportunity for new members to win a 100€ voucher, through Park&Cube.

All you need to do is Join at Modepass, go to My Account, then edit your Profile, and in the field Addicted to, write parkandcube. Yuh, my blogname happens to be your portal to winning moolah, am I not a Genie in a bottle?

I’ll see you at the finish line on the 21st of May, that’s when they will announce winners to me. Come back here for some pancake & cucumber celebration!

    This seems like such an amazing website! I think I’d much prefer it over Chictopia or the like. Can’t wait until school settles down so I can start posting!

  2. love reading your blog

  3. I chose not to join the above websites and rather blog because of the demands to look stereotypically “fashion forward”.

    I disagree with the image and the scrutiny one undergoes for better or for worse.


  4. nice tips. i joined modepass but i’m so confused with it! there’s so much i need to learn about that site and posting and all that.

  5. can’t agree with more re the grading.

  6. ttuttle

    i mean i can’t agree with you more.

  7. i’m already on modepass, but i added your blog in my addictions, cuz it’s true anyway!

  8. Interesting points! I used to have a blog on Xanga ever since high school and I really miss the community aspect that it had… that’s the one con to blogspot!

  9. Nikki

    Thanks for the lovely tips! (:

  10. i’m wanting that bolero in your previous post. it’s so pretty…

  11. I’ve never joined those sites because somehow I feel like I just wouldn’t fit in. I do browse for inspiration on them sometimes but I usually stick to browsing blogs!

  12. it’s too bad that we can comment just on your last post:( anyway,
    your style of writing is so funny, I like that!
    I wonder about your combination process of your outfits! :)

  13. I joined, but I’m also confused :-/ is there a ‘getting started’ page that i’m just not seeing?

  14. […] Oh btw, one more day to go to win 100€ by signing up in Modepass! Details here. […]

  15. i loved modepass and your blog is AMAZING, i specially love the DIY posts.
    btw,in the post where you put an acrylic organizer i could see a lovely panther ring,where is it from???


  16. Ah I actually bought the ring in Warsaw, Poland in Bijoux Brigitte, maybe you have that store where you live? I think they have stores all over Europe… Their site is useless though :P

  17. i did it as well, glad to find out even about the site itself!! :)) ps: been following your blog a while now, verrrrrryyy good! byee x
