How To Be A Top Blogger By Following Beyoncé And Solange's Lead!
Beyoncé is renowned for keeping her private life, well, private, but since she logged onto instagram and tumblr earlier this year, she’s become quite the regular user. Sharing everything from personal holiday snaps to her daily outfits, Refinery 29 has noted that B’s got all of her online style moves – like wearing the season’s buys or getting the most flattering pose - totally down. So should she want to segue into the world of the über bloggers, this looks like a good start. Maybe she’s been taking tips from DJ sis Solange, whose website My Damn Blog has been giving us a great insight into her hipster Brooklyn life and a peek into her even hipper wardrobe for quite some time.
If you are still thinking of joining the blogosphere, and you didn’t get enough advice from our masterclasses at Regent Street’s Apple store, we’ve put together the Knowles sisters definitive guide to weaving some great web action. Scroll through the gallery to find our six key steps to online stardom…
Wear new season must-haves: From Beyoncé’s Phillip Lim’s Kapow sweatshirt to Solange’s Givenchy tee these siblings have their season’s ‘It’ buys all wrapped up. And Solange’s knack for always finding a cool accessory or two (this necklace is from newbie Holst + Lee) continues to astound us.

Give an insight into your faaaabulous life: Parties, yachts, filming music videos in exotic locations… it’s all tantalisingly too good to ignore. We were particularly keen on seeing Beyoncéand Solange with their ultra-glam holiday crew.

Remember that bold colours and brave prints always catch the eye:These two aren’t afraid of a strong colour clash or bold print mash-up. Solange’s fluro pink dress certainly pops, doesn’t it?
Show your fun side: Get silly with accessories. Be a dork in glasses. Pull a funny face. Unveil some house party pics. Any of these things show that you are a normal human being (who just so happens to have major star quality).

Let us see your super-cute kid!: We’ve been hooked on the girls’ offspring snaps. Ivy Blue in papa Jay Z’s WatchThe Throne tour t-shirt… Solange’s beyond adorable son Daniel Julez Smith Jr getting all fashwan with mama. It’s just a swoon-fest.

Share seminal life moments: Seeing Beyoncévoting for Obama or understanding the true meaning of Solange’s lyrics to her singles – like True above, that’s the kind of personal insight a keen web watcher wants from a blog.
B for Obama!
