You Know You’re A Blogger When…


In the short time I’ve been blogging, it’s become a big part of my life. It’s my hobby and my passion, and I’ve learnt a lot along the way – from how to manage my time, to learning about my writing style, to taking and editing a decent photo. I’m a small fish in a huge blogging pond, but I love it. Here are 21 things you might find when you’re a blogger…

  1. You can’t go anywhere without your phone or camera on hand so you never miss a good photo opportunity.
  2. You even look at things around you and see them as photos.
  3. You’ve got your editing technique down to a tee and have your go-to filters.
  4. You carry a notebook for when those ideas come to you from nowhere.
  5. You justify new purchases by saying ‘but this would make a good blogpost’.
  6. You can’t look at new makeup products without being absolutely covered in swatches.
  7. You might buy a product to review purely based on a recommendation from your favourite blogger.
  8. You feel proud when your favourite blogger likes your photo/post.
  9. The anticipation you feel when you press the ‘publish’ button on a post.
  10. Sometimes the blogposts you just throw together prove to be popular, while the ones you’ve spent more time on get less traffic.
  11. If you have no wifi or 3G, you have a problem.
  12. You have so many drafts of half-written posts and abandoned photos saved for a rainy blogging day.
  13. Your chargers are your best friends.
  14. You’re forever on a quest for the perfect flatlay.
  15. Blogger terms have become part of your everyday vocabulary.
  16. You check your stats at the most random times. Wakes up at 3am… checks blog stats. Waits for the washing to finish… checks blog stats.
  17. When you have a free day, you often devote it to blog planning.
  18. The slight panic you feel when someone you know says they’ve read your blog.
  19. You’ve realised just how much time, effort, and self discipline blogging involves.
  20. A successful blogpost with lots of trafficΒ and nice comments can literally make your day.
  21. Your blog and social media are your babies, and you can’t remember how life was without them.

Can you relate to any of these? Thanks for reading.
