You Might Be a Blogger If..


Y'all have no idea how excited I am to share this post with you! As bloggers we all have some...quirks that non-bloggers may not fully understand. It has taken me so long to get this up because every time I go to hit "publish" I think of a new one! With that, I give you:


You Might Be a Blogger If...

-you buy contact paper in marble or light wood panel prints

-you take a picture of all your meals and snacks before you eat them

-you take 10-15 pictures of the same thing at different angles

-you have a whole folder in your phone dedicated to "photography" aka photo editing apps

- wine. coffee. smoothies. all must be photographed

-you can stage a photo like a pro

-you refer to people in conversation as "my blogger bestie" or "my in real life friend"

-you know some people by their blog name instead of their real name

-you check facebook, twitter, and instagram before getting out of bed in the morning

-you set up a tripod and laugh at it to get the perfect insta shot

-target. must be photographed

-your hands are in 60% of your picutres

-your legs strategically placed on a bed are in the other 40%

-pretty handwriting and planners-always photographed

-when the lighting is good, you mass shoot pictures for posts in the future

-you evict your dog from their fav blanket because its the perfect background

-you get full glam for an hour to take pictures then revert to sweatpants

-you put on jeans for 5 minutes to get a "view from above" picture then go back to netflix+chill

-floors. ceilings. and walls-all need to be photographed

-you have a running "post ideas" list in your phone

-you email yourself blog pictures 5-8 times a day

-you blog on the toilet

-you use your personal hotspot to blog on the go

-you purchase inflight wifi to blog at 30,000 ft. 

-you believe that if it wasn't snapchatted, instagrammed or tweeted about, it didn't happen

-you cringe at poorly written posts/bad comment grammar

-you may post a picture of avocado toast from last week while you're eating cheese fries

-you always post pizza pictures because, pizza


so, are you a blogger? what are some of your quirks?

  1. Just today I posted on my blog a bunch of the funnier pictures I've taken for the blog over the years. I'm a fairly 'relaxed' kind of blogger--but this hobby has certainly impacted my everyday life!

  7. These are so incredibly true.
    Especially this one for me: -when the lighting is good, you mass shoot pictures for posts in the future
    I get so few good light days in my dark home - we had it built and yet I didn't request any extra windows.

  8. lol, all of these are so true! Every time someone asks me to do something and I've already scheduled to do a post or shoot a product, I tell them I can't because I've got blogging stuff to do and then they give me this bewildered look and are like....ookkkaayyy. I can't even take photos of something without having 20 or 30 different options to choose from. The struggle is definitely real lol!

  22. These are so true! How about, you are a food blogger if...you take the same photo 50-60 times to get the best angle and composition. Because sadly, that happens. And really...if you didn't document it, it never happened. I agree 100%!

  23. LOL that is too funny and oh so true. I have a notepad to jot down everything that I think can possibly be a post..

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes to all of these!!! Love this list!!! Especially taking pictures of the same thing a million times but at different angles. The struggle is real on that one! I just bought some marble paper. Checking social media all the time is a must.
