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 [a target="_blank" href="http://iam.beyonce.com/">tumblr[/a] earlier this year, she’s become quite the regular user. Sharing everything from personal holiday snaps to her daily outfits, [a target="_blank" href="http://www.refinery29.com/beyonce-instagram">Refinery 29[/a] 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 [a target="_blank" href="http://mydamnblog.com">My Damn Blog[/a] 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 [a target="_self" href="/fashion/archive/2012/10/30/watch-our-introduction-to-blogging-masterclass-on-itunes-now.htm">masterclasses at Regent Street’s Apple store[/a], 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.
Solange and her holiday pals!
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!
