You Know You're a Blogger When...

My life has changed because I write this blog. And my blog is itty bitty. I find myself doing, saying and thinking the weirdest things. 

I've become a blogger. 

I've noticed that bloggers can be identified by some common traits. So I put together a short list: You Know You're a Blogger When...

-You need a picture to add to your post, so you scroll through your phone and instagram to find the perfect one. 

-Your camera roll has become a treasure trove of flowers, feet and other random photos that are pretty and non-descript. 

-You are better friends with some of your blogger friends than your real life friends. And you don't think it's weird. 

-Your favorite color is gold metallic. 

-When you take a photo, you spend approximately 10 years staging, lighting, and editing the photo. 

-You know basic HTML.

-You have a very expensive planner, such as a Day Designer, Erin Condren Life Planner, or Simplified Life Planner. 

-Said planner is FULL of post-its with blog post ideas. 

-You frequently use the hashtags #thatsdarling #weekendstyle and #itsthelittlethings.

-You search out products, activities and recipes to share on your blog. "Do it for the blog" might have been said once or twice. 

Today I've teamed up with 13 awesome bloggers to bring you a $185 Sephora gift card! 
Make sure to enter "Always, Al" as the referring blog name on the free entry! Good Luck Ya'll!

  1. I laughed so hard at this because it's TRUE! Oh the funny things we must do as bloggers... I definitely feel closer to my blog friends lately and don't necessarily think that's a bad thing!

  2. So true! We are strange birds but I love it all the same :)

  3. ha these are great and so true!

  4. I'm rebelling against the gold! Honestly, I don't really get it, because gold doesn't look good ON me, and it's still the trend to have a silver toned wedding/engagement ring.

  5. This is so true. I always laugh when my friends have started to pick up on my blogger tendencies. We have our calling cards traits.

  6. Me either!! I was telling my brother about my blogging friends yesterday, and he was like "seriously that's weird." And I was like "NO IT'S NOT! YOU BITE YOUR TONGUE!"

  7. It was way too easy to think of these. :) We are a strange but awesome bunch!

  8. This post is fantastic! I agree with practically everything you said! I am always taking weird pictures "for the blog" or for Instagram too.

  9. this is SO ACCURATE!!! SOOO ACCURATE!!! you NAILED my photo stream on my phone ahhaha

  10. LOVE this! It's so accurate. Last night I was with a group of friends and spent a good 20 minutes trying to take the perfect photo of my homemade margarita and my friends are like "I'm guessing we'll see that photo on the blog in the next week?". They know me so well haha

  11. hahah! I always am stopping or putting random stuff together! It's for the blog though!

  12. It simply must be done. You have to share these things with the world!

  13. Or putting stuff together. The best thing I've bought for the blog was my $1 pieces of foam core. I seriously use those ALL THE TIME.


Comments make my day! Leave me some love :)
