You Know You’re a Blogger if…….

First, a blogging tip:

I wanted to share with you blogging tips that I have learned throughout my blogging and e-zine journey.  They may come once a week, once a month or even twice a week.  I am not sure, I will just go with the flow on this. Be rest assured, that I am still learning right along with you!

Even though we are an e-zine not a blog I did dabble in the blogging world before diving into the E-zine world.  Actually, I still blog for myself and my family when I have time, which means not often.  The above tip is something I see newbie bloggers and even from those who have been blogging for years, do.  If most bloggers are anything like me, when I click on a link and it takes me to another blog this is how I get “oooh, ahhhh, I want to see how she did that, oh wait, I want to pin that…”  Before I know it, I forgot that I was ever on your blog.

Guess what?

You lost a reader, not because their content was better but because one can easily get distracted when surfing the internet.

Now onto some blogging humor:What would you add to the “You know you’re a blogger if….?

    You know you’re a blogger when you have been away from the computer for 1/2 the day and you can’t wait to read the comments people have left you.

    This is so true! Especially the part about not having met some of your closest friends!

      Charlotte,
      Yes, I can see how that happens. Esp. if you are in a tight blogging community.

    Those are hilarious!!! I totally do most of those. I would say, “You know you’re a blogger if you constantly think about how this could become a blog post…” I now take way more pictures (and different pictures) so that I can use them on my blog.

      Beth, I totally relate to the not letting guest or for that matter my children eat until I have taken pictures of the food. Glad I can laugh at myself.

    Oh that list was funny! Have me cracking up. And that is a great tip! I’ve gotten into the habit of right clicking and “open in a new tab” because I know people that don’t do that. :)

      Nicole, I didn’t realize you could do that. I will have to try that b/c sometimes it’s annoying when I do want to go back to that persons blog but I have to keep hitting back on my browser or typing the address again. Good to know.

    It’s just so funny because it’s just so true. Especially the one about waiting to go to the bathroom because “I’m just about to his PUBLISH.” Yep. (Oh, the shame.) :)

    Great list!
