Do you own a blog? Do you consider yourself a blogger? If not, maybe you will change your mind after reading this post.
Some people don’t consider themselves as bloggers because they don’t have a huge amount of followers, comments or they don’t get picked for brand deals. But I am here to tell you, you don’t need to have these things. Just having a passion, a want to make your blog the best it can be, and any of the following blogging habits, will make you a blogger!
Social Media Has Become Your Domain And Notification Watching Your Game
Social Media is the place to be if you have a blog.
You need somewhere to connect and interact with other bloggers as well as the people who read your blog. It is also the home of (none) shameless plugs, otherwise known as our blog links.
We have to. Our blogging journey just wouldn’t be the same without it. Plus, I really love supporting others in my community and receiving that same support back. It’s all about spreading the positivity in more than one place!
You Spend More Time Replying To Comments/Commenting On Blogs Than Talking To People You Actually Know!
I think I have actually become ADDICTED to reading other peoples blog posts, but not only that, I have an obsession with commenting on these blogs. I just think it is important. It gives others a boost and shows you care about their posts.
You know what? I also love receiving comments. Obviously, it isn’t the be all and end all. I don’t do it just for that, but when I do see a comment, I get so excited and just want to show my appreciation by replying, although I sometimes forget to do so. Oops!
Your Emails Are Constantly Cluttered But You Really Don’t Mind
I remember the days when I would barely get 20 emails a day.
Jump forward a few months, I have gone up to about 60 emails a day. Obviously that doesn’t sound like a lot for some of you, but compared to what I had, that is, how do I put this? A LOT more!
Then again, who doesn’t want positive emails outlining how things are going with your blog and about other bloggers you know and think are amazing?
When You Have More Photos For Your Blog Then For Personal Use
I am pretty certain that none of the photos I have taken in the last few months have been just for general use. Almost all of them have been for blog posts or my social media content.
Yeah, we are all aiming for that perfect shot that makes people go, #GOALS!
Getting Way Over Excited When An Idea For A Blog Post Comes Into Your Head Or Every Time Someone Follows Or Comments
Probably the most relatable of them all!
There are moments when you may be feeling down, maybe from the day just gone by or from a lack of inspiration, but the very second an idea for a post comes into your head, a smile so electric and infectious will creep onto your face. It’s such an incredible feeling. You just want to run to your laptop, computer or maybe your smartphone, to quickly start writing what is in your head before it leaves.
The same goes for when you see someone new has followed you or commented. You just want to thank them, because it really means a lot to a blogger to know that people are supporting them. It’s not always the easiest thing out there, but every person who follows, likes a post or comments, makes a huge difference. You are making a bloggers day!
Have I changed your mind? I hope so! Whether you have 10 followers or 10,000, you are a blogger. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! You’re doing amazing!
