Sometimes when I'm lacking inspiration I'll scan the popular posts section of Bloglovin just to see what the cool kids are writing about. And almost always after doing so I'm instantly reminded why my posts rarely show up on the All Category Popular Posts. For starters, I don't have 20k followers on Bloglovin, my photos don't look professional, and I don't enjoy making pumpkin spice funnel cakes from scratch. I enjoy eating funnel cakes, that is true, but only when they're served to me from a one toothed carny named "Tug" at the D.C. Lynch Carnival located in the Sunset Plaza parking lot in Norfolk, Nebraska.
But I digress.
Right now at this very minute, this is what is popular in blogland according to Bloglovin. So take notes, blog friends. Because if you suck, these posts can help.
How To Make Food posts.
About 80% of the popular posts are recipes. Understandably so, people will always love food. But the thing that gets me is that some of these food posts aren't REAL food. The Perfect Tasting Kale Chip? Nothing about that sentence makes sense. There is no such thing as the perfect tasting kale chip. The Kale Chip That Tastes Least Like Shit would be more applicable.
Pumpkin Pecan Apple Spice Nutmeg Crumbled Granola. Who has time to make their own granola? WHO? Why not save some time and money and invite me over to your house and then I'll just beat you over the head with several granola bars. Within minutes you'll have a nice full bowl of crumbled"homemade" granola.
Chai Latte Sweet Potato Pumpkin Flavored Cupcake. Let's get really crazy and just have a pumpkin flavored pumpkin recipe.
How To Transition To Autumn Makeup posts.
I had no idea these beauty posts were so popular. But according to Bloglovin, they are. Before I transition to autumn, perhaps I should transition to 2014. I'm still using the same eye shadow pack I got in 2012 when it was on sale after summer... I should probably be reading more of these beauty posts.
My makeup look is typically whichever eye shadow looks the least scary. But after I run out of the good solid golds and browns, I'll start using those scary blues and dark greys. I'm not just going to let them go to waste, am I?
How To Wear A Chunky Sweater posts.
You just do, right? Wrong. Turns out there are specific ways this fall to wear a chunky sweater. My thought process was, hey I'm feeling chunky right now, better put on a chunky sweater. But that's not how it works. You have to wear them with skinny skinny pants and chunky healed ankle boots and a floppy hat with huge sunglasses. The goal is to make yourself completely disappear apparently.
I just bought a great chunky sweater at Urban the other and when I tried it on for Chris he looked at it and said, well it's not very flattering. Duh Chris, that's why it's called chunky. Get with it.
How To Go Apple Picking posts.
Apple picking is all the rage right now. If you haven't done it, just stop blogging right now. Go get some kids and some chunky sweaters and some flannels and go pick some damn apples already.
Run through the fields, kiss some scarecrows and just let your freak flag fly at the apple farm. Apple farms are so hot right now.
How To Wear A Hat posts.
Finally! Am I right? If you were confused like I was, just find one of these great tutorial posts (Bloglovin has quite a few) and let this great mystery stump you no more!
Wearing a hat doesn't have to be like playing a Rubix cube! You can do it. Just face your fear and you'll see how silly it was all along.
There you have it, just a few things that are trending in blogland right now.
