You Know You're a Blogger if...

~You keep a list of post ideas in a journal or phone.
~You now understand that online dating could totally work {because we meet and connect with bloggers on a daily basis}.
~You start a sentence with "I was on a blog yesterday and saw the cutest _________"
~You know what a blate is {coined by my dear friend megan}.
~Your day suddenly goes south because dashboard isn't working.
~Everyone in your family knows if your camera is out...the photos will end up on the blog.
~Those same family members do everything in their power to dodge the camera.
~You stalk Sydney & Kendi...my favorite fashion bloggers :) {yes...first name basis)
~You loveee the holidays because it means craft and DIY inspiration galore!
~You use the phrase "I'm totally blogging about this!"
~You were embarrassed for yourself by the name the blogger girl {jenna} on The Bachelor gave us at the beginning of the season. #we'renotallthatcrazy
~Since you've started blogging, you've invested in a better camera.
~You've said "my blog friend ____ told me..."
~You've received weird looks when you say the above sentence.
~You have tried to explain blogging to someone who doesn't blog and given up because they don't understand.
~Peonies are your favorite flower.
~Finding a spelling error in a past post makes you want to cry.
~Rustic weddings are now your fave.
~Learning that a blog friend is engaged or pregnant makes your day.
~You've replaced People magazine with reading blogs instead.
~You consider friends you've met through blogging some of your best friends in the world. {Love this part :) }
~Chevron, ikat, painted furniture, neutral spaces with pops of color, or Kate Spade are now some of your most favorite things.
~You do a project and forget to take pictures then say "Man, that SO could have gone on the blog!"
- You see something in a magazine and think "I could make that myself for way less money!"


And finally, if...


~You love this community so much and think you could never live without it.

Am I right, or am I right?! Now it's your turn to make me laugh and to finish the sentence:
You know you're a blogger if ______.


Hope this brought a little smile and laugh to your Monday!

  1. You know you're a blogger if ... the first person you call or text after getting good news (you know, after your spouse) is a blog friend.

  5. This is GREAT - and almost all of these directly apply to me! I've upgraded to a better camera, frequently say - I just found the greatest idea on XXX blog, and often refer to people as blog friends in conversations with non-bloggers, always getting the strangest looks in return!

    Thanks for posting this, it really gave me a good laugh :)

  6. You know you're a blogger when more than half of the people who follow you on Pinterest follow your blog! (and then the other people you know who follow you on Pinterest say, Who are those people?)

  7. Beautiful pic of you at your desk!
    You know you're a blogger when you're on vacation and your walk around taking pictures, not only of tourist attractions, but of interesting architecture and food and fashion to post later.

  8. Yes yes yes to all of the above! My husband often has to tell me to put the camera down and just be in the moment. I try to find balance :)

  9. Love this post, totally made me smile : )

    "You know you're a blogger when... you have a pile of Christmas cards your best friend doesn't recognize any of the faces in and you have to say: oh, those are my blog friends...." HA!

  10. Ok this is the cutest post ever- I could relate to about every single one!! I have invested in a better camera, peonies are suddenly my favorite flower, I adore rustic weddings, and I am quickly discovering some of my closest friends are my blog friends. I am not sure if that is sad or what....? I'd say you know you're a blogger if you spend the first hour of your day going through your blogroll!

  13. This made me smile so much!! You know you're a blogger if...
    -you were on Pinterest before the whole world was, and have to stop yourself from pointing that out :P
    -you appreciate little details more than ever
    -e-mails from blog friends make you want to pack up and fly to the west coast for Starbucks/West Elm girl time...not that I would know anything about that one! :P

    you go on the internet to do your online classes, but then you start writing posts for your blog instead, and end up forgeting to do said online class anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  41. oh my gosh...I'm totally not following the rules, but I love this post so much! The part about "blogging friend" cracked me up! I saw it all the time!

    You know you're a blogger if you read your whole list and nodded "yes" to more than 5 of them :)

    Love you sweet girl!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm so guilty of way too many of these!! Eeek!

    You know you're a blogger when the first thing you do on the computer is check your dashboard, before facebook, twitter or anything else!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Great list!! And all so true!

    Thatsucks about your blog being hacked! Ehat does that even mean, and how do you back it up?!

    ReplyDelete
  44. You know you're a blogger when you lament pre-blogging days, when you didn't document your life in pictures as well, because when you try to recap those events you don't have many pictures to go with the posts.

    ReplyDelete
  45. You know you're a blogger...if you spend nights in bed tossing and turning because of a new DIY project that just popped up in your head or there's a post you're anxious to finish!

    Loved this post, Michaela! :)
    I'm a new blogger myself but can already relate to a lot of those things already!

    ReplyDelete
  46. You know you are a blogger if you wake up at 6 six before your baby boy just to make sure you can check your statistics and write a new post.
