Love her or hate her, Taylor Swift has a knack for blowing away fans and gaining an interest. The preppy pop star not only churns out catchy tunes, she keeps herself in check by constantly doing more for her fans. Bloggers should take notes from the singer because she seems to have social media on a string and fans are always coming back for more – no matter what. Here's what bloggers can learn from Taylor Swift.
Besides that on point cat eye eyeliner and side swept bang.
She includes other signers in her tour and shines the spotlight on them, too.
For her 1989 tour across the world, she's brought singers and even celebrities, both old and young, to join her on stage and sing or dance with her. Not only does this bring huge exposure for the celebrity, it brings her exposure, too. For example, when she was in Nashville a couple weeks ago, she brought Steven Tyler on stage. Fans of Tyler might not be interested in T. Swift are suddenly following her and listening to “Shake It Off”. She's gaining fans she might never have before.
Blog takeaway: sharing about other bloggers, big or small, in your genre or not, is GOOD for your brand and your blog. There's room for everyone.

My friend, Whitney, attended her concert recently with her sister. They made posters and Taylor's mom found them in their seats and moved them up to the 3rd row! Now, these girls were already fans of Taylor but now they are fans for life! They also shared more on social media and felt forever thankful for the opportunity.
