Blogging Behind the Scenes: Why Blogs Have Assistants and Interns

Blogging

Oh gosh, why does a fashion blog need an intern? All the blogger does is stand around and look cute in gifted clothes while her boyfriend takes her picture. It’s not like blogging is hard, it’s just to try to look important, right? Wrong. In 2016, blogging is a true business and is far more complex and time consuming than you can imagine.
