Thursday, January 16, 2014


Am I old fashioned for leaving my GFC button up still?

What if I put on a cute outfit and no one is around to photograph it?

Is Blogger.com trying to not let me renew my domain name?

I've never used a day planner, am I going to hell?

Why is restaurant lighting so bad for iPhone food photos?

What if someday I actually have to make the switch to Wordpress?

Why hasn't Blogher sent me any campaigns lately?

What if I lose another follower on Instagram today?

Will doing another product review this week piss my readers off?

What is Disqus commenting? Do I need to figure it out and put it on my blog because everyone else has?

What if people find out I'm being serious when I take a bathroom selfie even though I like to play it off like I'm just joking?

Sometimes I drink a Starbucks latte and I don't photograph it, is this bad?

Why didn't anyone buy an ad today? Do people hate me now?

What if PicMonkey stops being free? Will I actually have to pay the entire $2.99 fee?

Am I going to get a really mean comment today?

Is my page design dated already?

Are people getting sick of my dog?

But really, what is google + ?

What if people find out I don't really like chevron?

I've never taken a fashion photo while looking to the ground, am I a bad blogger model?

What if someone that I don't know and probably never will know, doesn't like my blog?

What if people figure out my life is actually a mess?

What if the internet blows up tomorrow?

What if no one shares this post, then how will I get blog famous?

What if someone takes this post seriously?

  3. LOL love it. I went out for Margaritas last night and debated whether or not to take pictures of chips and salsa for Instagram. I just knew that I would feel guilty if I didn't.

  5. The pinterest one!!! I don't understand. I mean I do, but when I blog about just general life, I sure as hell hope people aren't pinning my pictures. Then my friends and family would find out and I may Just. Die. I do NOT want to see myself on pinterest.

  6. I'm so over chevron! Actually I've been over it for over a year. Thank god someone else is acknowleding that that pattern needs to go away for a few decades.

  7. More importantly, how do you pronounce Disqus?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Haha!! Really though, we think like this ALL.THE.TIME!!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. All life or death questions, in my opinion.

  12. Sadly I worry about a lot of these things too! But replace Starbucks latte with Dunkin Donuts Dunkacinno... Hey I'm a New England girl through and through...

  13. Hahaha, we do wonder about some weird things. I often wonder, since my life isn't exciting enough to Instagram most days why do people even follow me there?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Seriously what is Google+ I ask but I really don't care :-P

    It makes me sad when people aren't old fashioned and don't have the GFC follow option, I'm lost as to how to follow them because that's how I read blogs. I rarely check Bloglovin and it overwhelms me. GFC for life!

  15. I will never be sick of Harlow. Never! But yes, you are going to hell for not using a day planner. Sorry 'bout that.

    ReplyDelete
  16. omg yes! And a year ago before I started this, I wouldn't have understood most of those points!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Google + and Disques are the mysteries of the blog world for me. Also, "what if I create a Facebook page for my blog and no one 'likes' it??" It'd be like throwing a party and no one coming!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Bloody brilliant. Why is blogging so hard?

    ReplyDelete
  19. literally amazing. pulled straight from my brain!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I will NEVER get sick of your dog.

    ReplyDelete
  21. yup. nailed it. but seriously i only use GFC to read blogs. this whole bloglovin thing just isn't for me!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hahaha you rocked it . I'll be worried if I have something nice on my nails and there's no Wi-Fi to have it instagrammed , I'll die in worry.

    ReplyDelete
  23. What if I lose another follower on Instagram is so right!! LOL I love this Taylor :) Your Harlow is too cute, I will never get sick of him.

    ReplyDelete
  24. All of this! We are crazy. Just flippin' crazy. One day there will be a TV show on Bravo about just how bananas bloggers are.

    Also, am I the only one who still uses GFC to read blogs? It's like...nostalgic. Not ready to give it up!

    ReplyDelete
  25. "Are people getting sick of my dog?"

    In your case, the answer is no. Not now, not ever.

    ReplyDelete
  26. haha. it's all just so true. so true. I'm loving your blog!

  27. I swear, 90% of these thought have gone through my head…that makes me lame, doesn't it? :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. 4 or more of these questions cross my mind every day, okay really its more like all of them!
    I will never get sick of your dog and I could care less if I see another picture of a starbucks cup.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I still have no clue what the purpose of Google + is :( lol

    ReplyDelete
  30. hahaha blogger anxiety just reading this...

    ReplyDelete
  31. What if they find out that I don't like wine? or rain boots? or coffee?
    I still don't know what an SEO is.
    Oh I could think of so many!

    Great post, Taylor! :]

  32. If the internet explodes, my life will be over.

  37. So great!! In short, yes, abandon Google's commenting system because it stinks (it always breaks on mobile devices)--Disqus would be good but it's not the only alternative--and also switch to WP.

    ReplyDelete
  38. But seriously. WHAT IS GOOGLE +?????

    ReplyDelete
  39. What if I put on a cute outfit and no one is around to photograph it? Every. Freaking. Day. Except, not really because I don't dress cute everyday, but you get my point.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love this! I also hate Disqus. I work at a newspaper, and we use it on our site and it is seriously jacked up about 50% of the time, so I would not recommend switching. I also kind of hate Google+, but that could be because I don't understand it even a little.

    ReplyDelete
  41. hahahahaha. It's ok... I didn't take a picture of my starbucks today and I'm really not into chevron ;)

  43. But seriously. How will anyone know if I drink wine or Starbucks if I don't tell Instagram?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Absolutely love this! It's so true. Reading it does actually make me feel a bit silly for worrying about this stuff =)

    ReplyDelete
  45. People will never get sick of your dog. I promise.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yep! I can check almost all of these off, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  47. "Are people getting sick of my dog?" Never. If someone gets sick of your dog they aren't human.

    ReplyDelete
  48. yesssss -- tired of trying to understand google+

    ReplyDelete
  49. What if I forget to comment on the blog post after I read it.. will they still know I read it?
    Or what if I do comment, will they even care?
    What if I don't get any blog comments?
    What am I doing with my life?
    WHAT IF TAY STOPS POSTING PICTURES OF HARLOW?!
