13 Things That Happen When You Date A Blogger

13 Tips For 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.

New to blogging? This might be a good place to start.

    […] of a lot more blogging than dating over the past two decades. Still, I must endorse this list of 13 Things That Happen When You Date a Blogger, simply because of that whole ring-of-truth thing: the mere fact that they don’t happen to me […]

    This is so funny and 100% true! Often times when I do a gift guide I leave a message for my husband literally say “Husband get me this”. It’s comical how many times he often misses that and thinks I mean it towards the masses. Men!

    One of my favorite things about my boyfriend is that he supports my blogging ventures. I actually have a post scheduled for next week about dating bloggers!

    My husband cooks for us and I follow him around the kitchen with a camera photographing his creations. HA! He also gets asked random questions as part of my research. 🙂

    Yes! I talk to myself so much that I have to say my husband’s name for him to know that I’m talking to him and not someone else or just myself. I do number 9 a good bit. But usually just type it out on my phone like a mad woman.

    Ahaha I love this post! So many things, ALL of them true. My significant other is a computer geek so he helps me a lot with coding when I run into an issue, and I make him read every single post for copy editing/suggestions. Sometimes I think he gets annoyed with how much time I spend on the computer doing blog stuff! Haha! Thanks for the hilarious post!

    This list made me smile. I’m sure my husband totally thinks I’m weird most of the time…but he’s gotten used to it (and pretty good behind the camera!).

    All of these can apply to when you are married to a blogger. This made me chuckle.
