15 Blogger Problems


Hello my lovelies! What most don’t realise before beginning a blog is how it can completely consume your life. Your experiences, be they big or small, all become inspiration for a potential blogpost; you find yourself spending a gruelling amount of time prepping the likes of your food for photos because if you don’t Instagram it, it obviously didn’t happen. For me, having a blog isn’t merely a hobby, it’s a lifestyle choice – a vessel and online version of myself that I can pour my heart and soul into, it’s a means of preserving precious memories and a way to make new ones. However, blogging doesn’t come without its problems, because with every perfectly crafted post I publish is a disheveled girl who has written a draft, deleted and written it again only to realise upon hitting publish that there are about 100 grammatical errors in the post #bloggerproblems

1/ As soon as there’s a new social media app released, everyone rushes to secure their username in accordance with their blog name (damn you fineanddandy1!)

2/ Limiting your Primark haul to essentials only, socks, hair ties etc and kicking yourself when you didn’t purchase that sassy summer dress, because nothing haunts us like the things we didn’t buy

3/ Having an absolute gem of a blog post idea only for someone beat you to it

4/ Attending an event or visiting a phenomenal place only to have forgotten your camera. But oh, I have my camera phone right? Wrong, it’s on it’s last legs with about 2% battery remaining

5/ Having a huge photo session, and taking about 500 photos only to end up using about 5

6/ The willpower that comes with not using products before you’ve photographed them first

7/ Home stores and craft shops become an endless source of props and backgrounds for blog photographs

8/ Meticulously skimming through your post numerous times, convinced there are no spelling errors in sight, only to hit publish and it’s the first one you see on the screen, taunting you

9/ Going into Boots or Lush for one thing and leaving with the entire store

10/ Having more online friends than you do in real life, and thusly seeming a lot cooler on the internet than you actually are (which proves prettttyyy awkward when you meet up at blogger events)

11/ The extensive preparation that goes on behind blogging – the tidying up, the photographing, the lighting, editing, responding to comments, interacting on social media…

12/ The winter months i.e. the bane of any bloggers life. Where there’s a brief window of light between the hours of 12:45pm and 12:48pm

13/ Looking back at old blog posts and cringing

14/ Doing absolutely anything for a good blog photograph, be it risking your life on top of a chair for that perfect flatlay angle or having people stare at you like a crazy person in the street as you pose for outfit photos

15/ Realising that the postman is basically the adult-version of Santa Claus and feeling the excitement building as you sprint to open the front door
