Blogging Is Weird

Blogging is weird.

One of my most popular posts is an entire post about candles.
Not a DIY How To Make Candles post, which would actually be understandable, but no, it's a post about my obsession with candles.
Nothing else.
There's nothing in the post other than a bunch of iphone pictures, poorly edited of my candles.
It got 16 comments.

Blogging is weird... and I like it.

Bloggers are weird.

Half of the bloggers I "know" write about their lives every day, and yet no one in their lives actually knows they even have a blog.
Including me.
Well my parents know. And my sister. And my aunt. And Marion. (HI MARION!) (she's gonna snapchat me this)
Other than that? I just don't talk about it.
But then I went and had brunch with someone I met online. (aka a blate)
But any other blogger reading this doesn't see anything weird with that at all.
Ashten drove 5 hours in the middle of the night to stay with Megan this past weekend. They'd never met before. Totally normal.

Bloggers are weird... and I like it. 

And with those happy thoughts, I see all you fine and happy bloggers tomorrow!
And you too mom.. And Jeff.. And Tina.. and Marion.. But probably not my sister, because she's "busy".


  1. I love this post!!!

  2. The only people in my real life that know about my blog are my mom and my boyfriend haha but that's the way I like it :-) Blogging IS weird hehe

  3. I love blogging and its weirdness. No one in "real" life knows about my blog either...oops!

  4. we are weird. and I do like it. It's our own little world.

  5. It is so funny you say that about blogging about your everyday life but nobody in your life knows about it. I am totally that way maybe like 6 people know I don't even think my parents really read what I post. At first I wanted my friends to know but I kind of like having a "life" totally separate from everyone :)

  6. This is so true. Most people who don't blog just don't get it. When someone asks me how long a project took me my answer is always something along the lines of "well it took me *insert time here* but it took twice as long because I was photographing each step" and the response is like uhhh why??? And I remember that non-bloggers just don't get it. It's weird to them. And to hang out with one of my favorite bloggers? Dream come true. I'd drop everything to have lunch with a blogging friend and non-bloggers are like "you'd meet a stranger from the internet?! omg no that's dangerous!".

    What you said is so accurate. Blogging and bloggers are weird and I love it :)

    "Ashten drove 5 hours in the middle of the night to stay with Megan this past weekend. They'd never met before. Totally normal."

    I'm dying over that one. DYING. It's true though--we make some new friends on our blogs and we feel an instant connection to them even though we've never met!

  8. blogging is weird, but in a good way! obvs.

  9. LOL i'm one of those people who blog about whatever is in my mind/what goes on with me and only 2 people IRL know about my blog. and meeting a fellow blogger is sort of like meeting a long lost friend; we stalk them on the regular and it's only geography that's keeping you apart!

  10. Great post! I think a total of 5 people in my life know I blog and I'm totally ok with that. :)

  11. too true! we end up doing questionable things we wouldnt normally do. like driving hours to meet someone who my mom probably thinks is catfishing me (thank god fallon is actually real) haha.

  12. LOL- yep, you and I were on the same wavelength with our posts apparently ;) No one knew for a LONG time about my blog-- you know, the real life people, but now my parents, in-laws, siblings etc.. they all read it. EEK!

  13. I love this:) Blogging is weird and I love it:)

  14. Totally true. Bloggers are weird...and I <3 them!! :)

  15. let's do brunch again! because we can't be totally weird and just meet once like a weird online date or something..


I love you people! Let's be friends.
