13 Things That Happen When You Date A Blogger

Dating A Blogger

  1. Most of us have a routine first thing in the morning. Check blog stats, check Pinterest, check Twitter, check our Facebook pages… okay, now we’re ready to start the day.
  2. We’re GOING to take a million pictures. Sometimes, yes, of delicious food. Whining about it isn’t going to make us take any less. You’re just gunna annoy us.
  3. A planner isn’t just a planner. It’s a way of life. Please don’t disturb us when its pages are open and we’re writing stuff down.
  4. Notebooks WILL be found all over the house. Often, stacks of them. Yes, we need that many.
  5. We easily become obsessed with weird random stuff like flamingos, pineapples, pineapples with sunglasses, watermelons, etc. Get used to our crazy.
  6. We take this stuff seriously. For some of us, it’s a business, so don’t dismiss our blogging as a simple little hobby. We sign contracts, pay taxes, and have clients, we’re not just aimlessly surfing the internet.
  7. Want  to impress us? Learn about PhotoShop or develop some professional photography skills. Bloggers like guys with skills. We’ll definitely keep you around if you can help us with our work.
  8. We talk to ourselves. Sometimes, a lot. Especially when writing a blog post. Nothing wrong with that.
  9. We’ll be having a great time, a great conversation, and mid-sentence we’ll run into the other room searching for a pen and paper like a crazy lunatic. When an idea comes up for a blog post, we can’t risk forgetting it!
  10. If we’re taking a long road trip, chances are we’re listening to a blog podcast instead of music, so you better be okay with that.
  11. A high traffic blog day puts us in an instant good mood! Celebrations are always in order on those days!
  12. Yes, we have tons of online friends we’ve never met. And you know what? They’re a whole lot nicer than most people we interact with face to face, so no, it’s not weird.
  13. Don’t know what to give us for our birthdays/V-day/anniversaries? Lucky for your, gift giving is no longer difficult. Just scroll through our blogs and you’ll likely find a whole bunch of wish list posts. You’re welcome.

5 Tips For Buying Your First Car In Your Twenties

5 Tips For Buying Your First Car

Okay, so let me start off by saying that I hate being a grown up sometimes. I hate having to do adult stuff like going to the doctor and filing taxes. So up until a year ago, the thought of buying a car was absolutely repulsive.

Up until a year ago, I had always leased my cars. 3-year leases were my thing. I was a pro at that. I’d get a car I liked, it was never too expensive, and there was very little commitment involved. If I liked it, great! And if I got bored of it after a while, the end of my lease was never too far away.

But then I met my husband, and ended up moving really far from where I work. When I’d look at the miles I was putting on my car, I’d cry. That’s when I knew it was time to be a big girl and actually BUY a car. Plus, I was a little tired of just throwing money away. I wanted something that was MINE, so I knew it was finally time to make that investment.

Turns out, there really is a right way of motivating us, and most of our employers have it all wrong.

Just listen…
