People nowadays has their own idea of what a blogger is. Sometimes they’re right, but most of the time, they’re really wrong. Like for instance, when I tell them that I blog, they suddenly become excited like it equates to being a celebrity online. And I’m really far from that. Here are some other things that they think about me as a blogger:
A FASHION BLOGGER
It seems like the bloggers that they only know are the ones who blog about style, who publish OOTD’s in every post, and who would mention where they got their clothes, bags, and shoes from. I have may have blogged about fashion once or twice but I’m not a fashion blogger. I don’t really belong in any niche cos I just blog about whatever I want to blog about.
I don’t know why some of them always have this impression. All I did was sign up on a blogging platform, take photos, write about things and ta da! I’m a blogger, or should I rather say, a girl who blogs. And I’m certainly not famous or a celebrity or whatever. I just have my own space on the internet.
When bloggers post about hauls, where they went, gadgets or anything, I’m pretty sure they don’t brag about it. Some readers actually want to know these and we often like to write about them too. If I post about a gadget, it doesn’t mean I’m showing it off. It means that I’m reviewing it so that other people can see the features before they can buy it. And since it’s a personal blog, we would blog about our life and would often mention the things we buy but it doesn’t mean that we brag.
Most people think that I earn from blogging but I’m not. Well, you can though but it depends on how much traffic you have or how influential you are. Sometimes I get to receive products for me to review or a sponsored posts or two, but that’s about it and it only happens occasionally. It would be cool if I can earn through this though but it’s not consistent.
I remembered someone asked me about an occasion I went to because she hasn’t seen me posting about it online. I don’t always post about what’s been happening in my real life. If I don’t document it, it doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen. My blog is just a fraction of my life. Not everything has to go online.
