How To Be The Perfect Blogger

I got my nails done as a treat for myself on Saturday after a semi-hectic week at work, and it actually made me giggle how having nude pink nails made me feel like a 'real' blogger, despite not really being able to even type with them.

It got me thinking about what other blogging stereotypes there is, something I first touched on in my 'I drank coffee, am I a real blogger yet?' post wayyyyy back in March, so I came up with this post poking fun at all the blogger stereotypes out there.



You can't be the perfect blogger unless you're super dedicated, so posting every day is an absolute must. No slacking on this is ever allowed, under no circumstances. You're sick? Shame 4 you. Write that post up, bitch. No pain, no gain is the blogging mantra.

Live an Instagrammable Life

As a blogger, you are a representation of everything bright and sparkly - your life should be the equivalent of a rose-gold Instagram quote. Having a bad day? Wrong! Suck it up honey and Snapchat yourself lounging in your white IKEA bedroom with the caption 'Love My Life', there's a good girl.

Look Like a Blogger

If you're not petite and pretty with a nose piercing and quirky flower tattoo, THEN WHY ARE YOU EVEN READING THIS? Go away, get a manicure, and come back when you look like a cross between Amanda Seyfriend and Ellie Goulding, you'll suddenly realise just how much more popular you'll become!

Thou shalt drink Starbucks

Always. You can't be a proper blogger without a Pumpkin Spiced Latte in one hand and a Strawberry Frappuccino in the other, it's practically illegal. Being constantly hopped up on caffeine also means you'll maintain the bubbly, happy blogger demeanour that we can't allow to slip, it's a win-win.

Speak in acronyms

Knowing your LOL from your BRB just isn't good enough anymore. Being a blogger, the phrase "OMG that is totes amaze" should be as frequently in your speech as the word "sponsorship". How do you expect to be cool and relatable on social media if you talk like an old granny?


Chanel perfume? Check. MAC makeup? Check. Rose gold Michael Kors watch? Double check. You simply can't be a blogger unless you constantly buy the best of the best, absolutely no exceptions. Basically, don't try to be a blogger if you don't have a sugar daddy funding you, LOL SOZ BABE.

Had a good giggle?
What other stereotypical things contribute to the perfect blogger?

  5. Ok this weeknds to do list now looks like this:

    1. Spend all of my none existent money on make up
    2. Drink Pumpkin Spice Latte (and dn't tell anyone that it made me feel sick)
    3. Hack off half of legs (width and length) until classed as 'petite'

    Thanks for giving such actionable to do points! Although hacking off my legs doesn't sound too instagrammable UNLESS I turn my blood rose gold?

    This was amazing haha xx

  17. Here's one - Never take a shot for instagram of your chilled day at home unless it is of your legs bent at some off angle with a cup of tea in the middle.

    1. Ha! Those images are littered all over Tumblr and Pinterest too. Many of them are lovely in composition, but they do make me even more self-conscious about my legs. :-)

  18. Hahaha oh no, I'm petite (short) and have a nose ring and tattoo of flowers on my arm! Damn it. This post did make me chuckle though.


  19. This definitely made me laugh! Blogger stereotypes are so ridiculous and unrealistic x


  20. Most of this post I can laugh at, but is it terrible to admit that when I was looking for an apartment 99% of my criteria was based around its instagramableness..
