It’s been a while since I’ve shared a little “Top Three” list with you. I’m thinking it’s time. 😉
Before we get started, you should head over to Shay’s blog. She’s sharing some BIG NEWS with you guys and you don’t want to miss it. Trust me.
I told you it was big. 🙂
I get asked a lot about blogging. All kinds of why, when, and where type questions from people I meet or who read here. I shared some thoughts on blogging here and here. But one question I’ve never answered on the blog is…“What are some things I wish people had told me about blogging?”.
This is gonna be fun.
#1 You will take pictures of EVERYTHING. And I do mean everything.
As a blogger you start to think of your life in blog posts. Anything and everything could lead to a post if the idea strikes. I remember sharing this with you girls a few years ago. I was at the gym getting ready and I took a picture of something…my hair, jewelry, make-up, something and one girl said, “Did you just take a picture of yourself” in the most disgusted tone. I TOTALLY denied the picture!! Why did I not just own it? I have NO clue, but I didn’t!
#2 You will think of people you’ve never met as friends!
You girls are SO encouraging to me. You have the best advice, give the best recommendations, and are simply awesome! I know it sounds crazy, but I think of us as friends. In real-life I’d shriek and hug you if we met…which leads me to my next one…
#3 You will meet other bloggers and fan-girl like a boss.
I do this one as both a blogger and a blog reader. I’ll see people whose blog I read in real-life and fan-girl, pull out my nervous laugh, and be on the cusp of breaking out in hives before I reach my normal “Erika” levels. haha! And if someone tells me they read my blog, I want to HUG them but I realize that might scare them so I do the above steps…nervous laugh, and so on. 🙂
What about you guys? What do you wish someone would have told you about blogging? I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.
Have a GREAT day! XOXO
