, couple of thoughts as someone who's been kicking around the forum for a few years. I'm premising this on the assumption that you want to participate in the forum on an ongoing basis; if not, feel free to disregard (or disregard anyway; your call).
- First off, the photos are good and your fits are interesting. Keep posting them, although I recommend posting them here instead of starting a new thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/394687/the-what-are-you-wearing-today-waywt-discussion-thread-part-ii
. People generally post in existing threads when they have content that pertains to one of them rather than starting a new thread. People are more likely to view and comment on your fit - and ultimately click through to your blog - if it's in a high-traffic thread like the WAYWT discussion thread.
- Keep the link to the blog (solid blog, btw), but move it to your signature. That way you'll always include it in your posts. Also, it may be some kind of forum rule violation or faux pas to link to a blog or commercial site you own within the body of a post if you're not an affiliate. (I assume part of your reason for posting is to drive traffic to your blog.)
- I like it that you provide commentary on what you're wearing, but people are always going to be leery of someone who appears to be a) overtly self-promoting, b) offering unsolicited advice, or c) pushing advertorial content or a commercial agenda (with the exception of forum affiliates, obvs). All of these hold particularly true for newcomers to the forum.
- You may want to act like you're truly new to the forum even if you have a background in men's fashion. Lurk, read through some of the more popular threads, post in the ones where you have something relevant to say (definitely WAYWT, maybe the Uniqlo x Lemaire discussion), and try to take in the forum culture before becoming an outspoken presence.
I realize all of this sounds critical of your posts thus far, but I'm writing this because I think you could become an excellent contributor to the forum if you take the time to get to know it first. Just try to have a thick skin if you get flamed for shilling for an H&M collection or using phrases like "adding some golden details to keep my sharp".
