The Blogger Symptoms: 15 Things ALL Bloggers do!

hi-guys

I hope you’re all having an amazing week :). Can you believe it’s already December 1st? Time flies when you’re spending too much time on the internet and not enough time doing your homework. Personally, I’m just happy about the  whole advent calendar tradition starting up again. Seriously, why isn’t that an all-year round thing? I mean I think I deserve a little chocolate every morning to make up for all the sport I don’t do.

Anyways, about today’s post…The Blogger Symptoms. Very dramatic sounding, isn’t it? Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying blogging’s a disease – you guys know Ilove being a blogger! But, I’m sure all my fellow bloggers can agree that there are some things we all do that are pretty crazy. Last month was my one year blogiversary and I wanted to write something fun to celebrate an amazing year of Artsy Teening! I know a lot of my followers are also bloggers, so I hope you guys can relate to this list (or alternatively if you don’t have a blog, I suggest you sit back, relax and laugh at all us crazy people who post stuff on the internet 😉 ).

1 – Taking a million slightly different photos of the same thing, because you need to get the angle just right!

2 – Constantly checking your blog stats has just become part of your daily routine.

3 – Spending more time replying to the lovely comments from your followers than you do replying to texts from your friends.

4 – Having that one drink/snack that you like to have when you’re writing a post.

5 – Double checking to see if the post you scheduled was actually published on time!

6 – Suddenly remembering that a twitter chat was happening, but you’ve just missed it!

7 – Always having a bunch of post-its lying around.

8 – Trying to think of synonyms for the same word so that you can have as many tags on your post as possible.

9 – Always randomly jotting down ideas for potential blog posts.

10 – Basically having a nervous breakdown when there’s no Wi-fi connection nearby.

11 – Sunny days are an excuse to take plenty of pictures while the lighting’s good!

12 – If you’re blogging and someone asks what you’re doing, you say you’re “working”.

13 – Making decisions solely based on the fact that “you can blog it”. Seriously, the amount of times I’ve only baked cookies for the sake of a decent recipe post!

14 – Always having a hundred tabs open at once.

15 – Getting super excited every time you change up your blog’s layout!

Blogging Symptoms from Other Bloggers!

Another great thing about being a blogger is becoming part of an amazing blogger community…So I decided to ask a few of my blogger friends to send in some of their own ‘Blogging Symptoms‘!

“You accidentally bring blogging up in your every day life. You make little updates to the layout of your blog all the time and can’t seem to stop. You forget to reply to comments. You follow way too many sites, but unfollowing them would make you feel guilty. Whenever you receive a lovely comment from someone, you can’t stop smiling!”

“You struggle with bloggers’ block at some point. Or hate automated comments!”

Sanna

 “All bloggers make their significant other take photos of their outfits for OOTD posts!”

Lynell Marie

“All bloggers openly stress about how hard it is to grow instagram :(.”

Lisawww.thechinadolldiaries.com

“For me it would be.. Forgetting there’s an outside world! I sometimes get so wrapped up in blogging and all things digital, that I forget to take a breather haha!”
 
“I am crazy about emails. Every day, (almost 😀 ) I will open each one up with excitement, replying if necessary or just reading them with a great big smile. Emails are just so exciting to open. Before it used to be the tearing of snail mail, and now it’s the clicking of online mail!”

    Oh man I used to take literally hundreds of photos of the exact same thing all the time! I’ve ended up stopping that now though because it was just taking me way too much time to edit.

      I know, editing takes ages! But I think after a while your photography skills improve enough to take fewer, but nicer photos
