Are you a fashion blogger or a social media influencer?know the difference!


Fashion blogging and being an influencer in social media sometimes go side by side but most certainly there is a thin line between them that separates them as two different entities.

I have seen many fashionistas who does not have a blog but they describe themselves as ‘ Fashion blogger’ in their instagram bio. Oh honey! There you’re going wrong….Most certainly you are an influencer not a blogger. A blogger is a person who writes material for a blog in a regular interval of time. A blogger is more like a journalist. On other hand I have seen many bloggers describing themselves as influencers in their bio inspite of not following the relative rules for being an influencer. They dont even have  the “so called proper feed”. Influencers are more like posers and wannabe celebrities.

  • Who is an influencer? 

We are familiar with this word. Aren’t we? We often see them in social media…having lot of followers , posing for pictures and promoting brands.

The correct definition can be ” a user on social media who has established credibility in a specific industry”. Influencer can chose any field like fashion,food,travel,make- up,etc but they should have more followers than usual.

A social media influencer has access to a large audience and can persuade others by virtue of their authenticity and reach.Thus brands approach them to promote them in their feed.

To gain more followers influencers mainly focus on their feed.They try to decorate as much as they can. They use “hashtags” that helps them circulating their photos. They post atleast once in a week that shows their follower that they are active and that in turn will reduce unfollowers.


  • Who is a fashion blogger?

A fashion blogger is a person who shares his/her idea of styling with the world through internet. Sometimes they showcase their style by modelling for their own style and sometimes they hire a model to do the same. Some fashion blogger pen down their thoughts and some showcase their style through photographs. It mainly depends on the individual.


Being a fashion blogger I love to post here but I cannot title me as an “influencer” as I don’t have a proper instagram feed but soon I am trying to achieve that part also and I will share my instagram username here. Until then, thank you for your support!

  1. I love the way you construct your post with immersive writing and some lovely images relevant to your post. Even though I am not a fashion expert, but I can feel at ease with your control over the subject. Keep on creating these lovely posts, Samridhi 🙂

  2. This was a very interesting post. I do agree with you that they are not the same thing, but I think in today’s world a lot of people are trying to be both! I find that most influencers are a blogger/vlogger of some sort anyway and the ones who are not influencers yet, just don’t have the following to be considered an influencer yet. Thanks for this!
