Today I’m teaming up with Ash from The Grits Blog. If you don’t already know about this girl, you should. She’s honest, she’s funny, and she blogs about everything from style, to hair tutorials, to makeup stuff, even wedding details- she’s basically as versatile as a blogger gets! And to top it all off she also has her own blog design service. Like I said, she does it all.
And now we present: 20 Things We Unexpectedly Become Obsessed With Because Of Blogging.
1// Twitter. Seriously! I had never realllly used Twitter before blogging. I didn’t get what the buzz was all about. Now. I. Do. It’s the bomb!! I obsessively check it through out the day and read what’s going on with my fellow blogger friends.
2// How to make a cool design. Everything from glitter layers to fonts – I am always on the hunt for some cool layer and font. (P.S. – Custom designs are on sale for 25% off!!! Check out my portfolio here and shoot me an email!)
3// Obsessing over why someone unliked my bloglovin or other social media site. Seriously, I always wonder why and what I could have done differently.
4// Well this isn’t exactly unexpected, but it’s sure been exaggerated – taking thousands of pictures of my dogs and posting them to instagram. THEN hashtagging them with tags like #chihuahuagram #ilovemyfrenchie and so on. THEN getting depressed when I don’t get a ton of likes.
And compared to Ash’s, my list seems a little more shallow… But here it is.
11// Camera accessories. I just got my first “decorative” camera strap and I suddenly feel really cool about it. If it weren’t for blogging I wouldn’t even feel the need to have a “fancy camera,” let alone a col camera strap.
12//Juicing. I don’t technically know what juicing means, or how to do it, but when I see all of the delicious smoothies bloggers are creating because of their juicers I know I NEED ONE.
13//Acquiring a planner. I haven’t actually bought one yet, but every time I see new one pop up on a blog I think to myself, “I’m going to get a planner.”
14//Having a cool home office. The best I can hope for is a cool desk space because rooms are limited. I look at gorgeous photos bloggers’ post of their work areas and I can’t help but wonder how they keep it so clean? Are they really working there? Like really? Because where are all of the empty coffee mugs and post-it notes everywhere?
15//Hashtags. It’s hard to resist the hashtag when they’re getting so fun.
16//Birkenstocks. I haven’t owned Birks since the 70s but I’m seeing them all over the place and I really want to get a pair.
17//Floppy hats. I wasn’t nearly as into floppy hats until blogging. Luckily they’re great for bad hair days.
18// Blogging about blogging… cough cough.
19// Having a morning blog routine. Or trying to at least.
20// Tutorials. Here’s a hair tutorial I once did called “The George Washington.” Check it out and let me know what you think.
