Happy Friday Everyone!
Remember that time I wrote about why I hadn’t hit big blogger status yet? And then that other time when a monthly link-up called the Secret Blogger Club was created b/c of it? I thought those two things alone would instantly propel me to rockstar status…..sadly this was not the case, and I was forced to take a harder look at my Blogger-soul….
These are 5 more reasons I’ve decided I haven’t become a Bigger Blogger……..yet.
>> 1. I Don’t Have Any Haters. Well none that I know of, so will the real haters please stand up…..and exit the building b/c I’m plenty happy not hearing from you. Since I’ve started contributing to a large site like Run Haven, I’ve definitely read mean comments on things I’ve written, but as of yet, the garbage trolls haven’t migrated over to my lovely space. I’m ok to keep it that way too.
Although with my Quest post getting so much attention I’m definitely working on this status maker. Maybe one day I’ll have my own fan club!
>> 2. I Don’t Have Professional Photos. And by professional I mean someone to take my photos for me……Refer to this fashion blogger post if you will. I’m thinking if anything this one needs to change but probably won’t (at least for a long time). Have you ever noticed many bigger bloggers have these cool photos of them looking flawless? Usually in a really cute outfit looking over their shoulder, or effortlessly laughing into the camera…Yea, I’m not that girl even when I try really hard..case and point? You can click here for some reasons I’m not “cool,” as if you really needed any more.
Now all I need to do is snag a man I can bribe into taking my pictures…..hmmmm…..
>> 3. I Don’t Frequent Brunch. This is actually one I’d love to change. Brunch just sounds cool, right? If you don’t “brunch” you must just be extremely uncool. Welcome to the club….. I’m gonna blame it on the fact that I don’t live in a big city with a hundred new brunch spots to try every weekend. Also I have no friends in which to attend brunch with, so there’s that…
Ok fine, the “no friends” thing really isn’t true….I have friends, I’m just an Ambivert remember…Please someone help me with this….
>> 4. I Don’t Have a Ba-jillion* Giveaways . (*technical term) Not that there’s anything wrong with a giveaway. Lord knows I’ve done a few myself (and have a few coming up don’t worry). I’m talking about that blogger that is in literally Every. Single. group giveaway you come across. But hey it works, so actually I need to step up my game on this one…or my budget….oh wait, I’m poor….
>> 5. I Don’t Use GIFs. Beyond the occasional Vine video that just really tickles my fancy, (case in point here and here) my blog isn’t too animated. I enjoy gifs on other’s blogs, it’s just not my style. With the short attention span of people these days maybe I’m just not shiny enough, who knows. Maybe if I used more glitter…or gold, gold seems to be what the cool ladies like.
The longer I’m in this blogging game the more I realize I’ll just never be at the top, and that’s ok. I love my space and I love the people that come here to laugh along with me.
Besides, if I made it big, who would make fun of them? (I joke because I care 😉 )
What other trends do you see in the “Bigger” Bloggers?
