Sparkles & Stretchmarks: A UK Parenting & Pregnancy Blog: You know you're a Blogger when....

Tuesday, 29 April 2014

You know you're a Blogger when....

*You check your social media, emails & new comments before you have your first cup of coffee in the morning...

*Your meals are often served cold after you've spent 10 minutes in the kitchen photographing them before serving....

*You have notes everywhere filled with scribbles of blog ideas that come to you at random moments throughout the day....

*A selfie check is more important than a mirror check....

*And you wish that Instagram Filters could be applied to the eyes of anyone who looks at you in the real world.....

*You have an Iphone/pad shaped dent in the palm of your hand...(ok not really, but I`m sure its not far away....)

*Your 1 year old understands the words "Hang on...Instagram!"...mean "Stay there and carry on looking cute while Mummy takes a photo"

*....and he understands how to smile for the camera, can take his own selfie and will probably have his own blog in the next few years.....

*Your camera is as essential on any outing as your house keys....

*Your partner has asked "You're not going to blog about this are you?" when he's said something embarrassing...

*And he also usually asks what blog you saw something on whenever you want to buy something or visit a particular place....

*Your friends & family know your news before you tell them....because they read it first on your blog!

*Your recycling pile looks something like this at the end of each week.......

*Your postman has asked if you have ever sought help for your online shopping addiction....

*...or has asked if "Sparkles" (Insert your own blog name here)  is your real name....

What would you add to this list?!
