5 THINGS BLOGGERS DON'T TELL YOU


Thinking about starting up a blog? Or you're already have one and you may be able to totally agree with me on this post. Nodding along and laughing now whilst thinking 'yep no one decided to tell me any of this'. We might sound ridiculous to some people. Not everyone knows what blogging involves, and what it actually is and where do you go from it. However, there's plenty of paths that open up for bloggers and take them on good journeys and experiences. Along with all of the fun stuff that is involved, as well as stress - no one tells you about this..


YOU SPEND ALL YOUR FREE 'ME' TIME ON THE LAPTOP, TAKING PHOTOS OR THE *FUN* EDITING
Every time you get an hour or two, you find yourself waiting for your laptop to load to get some content done. I'm either blogging or watching youtube, or even looking at things that I cannot afford. *Sensible Taylor saying YOU WANT TO BUY A HOUSE*. You can't even have a bath without wanting to take a photo of the lush product your using, or the set up you've created with candles, bubbles and a book. (Even a cheeky glass of wine, or the most sexy looking hot chocolate with marshmallows and everything included.)

YOU END UP BUYING THINGS THAT ARE TOTALLY OUT OF THE ORDINARY
I can't go anywhere without thinking 'that'll look great as a prop, or that would look good on my freaking face'. I can't even go in a bloody garden centre without liking the look of a plant. It's just anywhere and everywhere I go! The mister is always looking at me in the sense of *WTF* when I'm picking up the most pointless things. He sees it as a total waste of money, but I see it as an investment as the prop in the background of my photo.  

YOUR PHONE GOES WITH YOU EVERYWHERE - SO YOU CAN TAKE PHOTOS OF EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING
Where ever I may go, I think it's totally acceptable to take a photo of a pretty blossom tree/ a building/ an outfit photo. You just need your camera with you every time you venture out the front door. It's just a total must have.

EVERY TIME YOU GET READY IT'S ALWAYS WORTH TRYING TO TAKE A PHOTO OR 346
Being so into beauty, I've decided to add MOTD photos of myself to my 'gram'. So every time I do my make up different, or use a new product I try to take as many photos as I can before the mister is beeping his horn outside to hurry me up. He knows exactly what I'm trying to do the impatient little shit. You either come away with not liking a single photo, or you end up liking the first one you originally took.  

COFFEE DATES ARE THE BEST WAY TO START EVERY MORNING
Yes yes yes! A friend says 'coffee date?' - I'M THERE. The mister says 'shall we go for breakfast/coffee?' - FUCK YES. Every single weekend I think coffee is so acceptable, and is a MUST HAVE on the agenda for the day. There's nothing more annoying when the barrister making a total fuck-up of your coffee, and doesn't look so sassy after all. Coffee date photos are the best for every Sunday of course, because everyone needs one. Even a Monday, we all need coffee to get us through the first day back at work after a hectic weekend.

That's all the points I never EVER got told, or even thought would happen as a blogger. So basically, becoming a blogger you have no money, you wish about every 1,988 item on your Wishlist. You suddenly think you're the next Ansel Adams (famous photographer.) Andddd the last person you think about is yourself for having 'me' time for, so that's why it's totally acceptable to have a 'PAMPER TIME' every single freakingggggg day of the week.

Do you agree?

  1. I love this! Blogging definitely eats into your person time, especially when you've got to sort out all of your social media accounts, do blog posts, take pictures, edit etc, it's just so time consuming haha!xx

  2. I can totally relate to the most of these points (not the coffee date thing though as I don't drink hot drinks and breakfast is a no go on the weekends as I want to sleep). As much as I try not to, I have to take a picture of something that might look good on Instagram and I want to buy all the useless props I can. Fortunately, my fiance kind of understands but doing it in front of people who don't quite get it earns me some very odd looks.

    1. Yes the mister for me is starting to understand too which is amazing! Walking along somewhere and you're suddenly like STOP because you either need a photo of your outfit, or you've spotted something that's totally acceptable for Instagram! Lol. Thank you for reading lovely xx

  3. Yes, I can relate to a lot of these points! I feel like I'm either on my laptop or my phone ALL THE TIME editing photos or uploading to social media. Finding a cut off time to completely disconnect is something I'm working on. I also have to resist the urge to buy all the newest product launches. I always think, "Oh that would make a great review!" but I also don't want to go broke (or hoard too many products). Blogging comes with its battles, but I still love doing it :)

  5. These points are so accurate, I find myself buying random things and forever taking photos, but I wouldn't change a thing, I want my content to the best it can possibly be. Thanks for sharing girlie.
