Confessions of a Blogger

Friday, 29 January 2016

Chanel adertisement, Makeup Revolution palette, MAC lipsticks, Urban Decay setting spray and Exuviance Cleanser.
I have been blogging for over a year now and I have to admit that although it has been fun it has also been somewhat stressful and a little daunting from time to time. I feel like people see us bloggers as perfect people living their perfect, luxurious lives and not having a care in the world, this isn't true and so I want to give you a taste of some of the less luxurious things bloggers do and think.

1. IT'S NOT ALWAYS AS TIDY AS THE BLOG PICTURES
From the pictures I post on my blog and Instagram it seems my perfectly lit bedroom is always sparkling clean with not a piece of dust or a dirty sock in sight. This is so not true, sometimes my room can be an absolute mess and I have had to clear space to get that blog photo looking clean and clear.

2. WE DON'T LIVE OFF KALE SMOOTHIES AND CAESER SALADS
Due to the amount of healthy green salads and fruit smoothies we post on our Instagrams and the healthy recipes many of us post on our blog it can be interpreted that we all have such incredible healthy diets. Also not true, on more than one occasion I have been known to eat a large Dominos pizza on my own.

3. PYJAMAS ARE THE BLOGGING UNIFORM
We don't sit at our laptops with our camel coats and perfectly ironed a-line skirts, I mean sometimes we do if it's convenient or very cold, but most of the time we are sat in our wrinkled, miss-matched Primark pyjamas (because Primark do the comfiest pyjamas obviously).

4. OUR LIVES AREN'T OUR INSTAGRAM
Not going to go all Essena O'Neil here, but what she said was correct, we obviously only post what we want you to see on Instagram. We don't have a perfect life, we wish our Instagrams were accurate representations of our lives most of the time.

5. WE AREN'T ALWAYS CONFIDENT
A comment bloggers tend to frequently get are on how confident we must be. Yes, we all did start a blog which of course took some confidence, but we do feel rather un-confident from time to time. We worry our blog isn't good enough or that our photography sucks.

6.WE CAN BE VERY GROSS
Some of us pop our spots, some of us don't wash our hair for long periods of time or change our pyjamas over the weekend. Just because we like to post selfies with flawless skin, shiny, volumous hair and tell you about all the good things we do on our blog doesn't mean we aren't gross sometimes. I mean I sometimes don't brush my hair for days at a time.
(disclaimer: personally I don't pop spots, it's always gave me the heebie jeebies.)

7. WE PLAN IN THE SHOWER
A lot of the time we will be in the shower, doing our thing when we think of the most amazing and popular blog posts for our blogs. This blog posts is an example.

8. WE LOVE SUPPORT
A comment, a follow, a little message just to say you gave our blog a read. We love getting support from both bloggers and non-blogger alike, although we never just expect it.

9. WE ARE ALWAYS TALKED INTO BUYING THINGS
Whether it be make up, clothes, a book, perfume whatever, we always have blogger induced buys. Bloggers are able to sell us products all the time, we love trying out new products out favourite bloggers have reviewed on their blogs.

10. OUR PHONES ARE OUR BEST FRIENDS
We use our phones to read other blogs, check stats, network, promote, tweet people, interact, write blog post ideas. Our phones are our favourite little device with everything we need for keeping on top of our blogging life.

So there are my ten blogging confessions, I am not saying these fit every blogger, but I have written ones which other bloggers have definitely agreed with.

So what is your biggest blogger confession?
