Sometimes I feel like I’m not a “real” blogger.
Some blogs I love just seem to have it all together.
They edit their pictures and add not only watermarks but those cute little titles and designs and stuff.
Most of my pictures are from my camera phone.
Most of my posts are done up in like 30 minutes flat. Sorry guys, but I have three small kids and a house full of crazy to keep up with.
Every now and again I get the blogging bug and just whip up posts and schedule them out.
I feel on top of things.
90% of the time I have a million emails to reply to, a million drafts saved and a million blog post ideas that I just haven’t gotten around to finishing.
Seriously, I think I have like 24 drafts saved currently.
I have a to-do list for all things blog related that just keeps growing.
Every time I mark one off, I add three more.
I have a blog post idea list that’s even longer.
Every time I type one up, it sits in draft form. Sorry, guys.
Sometimes I feel like I’m not as cool of a blogger as I used to be because I do sponsored posts and reviews.
But at the same time, those things excite the crap out of me! It makes me feel so amazing that my little blog has grown into something that people and brands consider someone/something that they want to work with.
David asked me the other day after I told him about a sponsored post I was selected for if I was selling out.
I starred at him for a second resisting the urge to punch him in his face.
I then explained things to him and how blogging worked but he was still confused. Such a man, that one.
Then I got to thinking–am I selling out?! Does this make me a “real” blogger?
But I like them, I’ll keep doing them but I’ll keep blogging about the real day to day life and random posts (like this one) as well.
I call that a blogging win.
I mean, I take a million random pictures just to blog them.
I have so many random recipe pictures to go with recipe posts that I just haven’t put together yet.
A lot of my post ideas come from scrolling through old pictures. It reminds me that I took certain ones just for blogging.
Lacking ideas?! Go look through your photo album! I mean it!!
I feel real spiffy because I actually made that little picture up there. It’s not the best, but it’s cute and I actually made it JUST for this post.
See, sometimes I feel like a such a blogger, but the majority of the times, I just ramble.
