5 lies bloggers tell




1. I don't care if anyone reads my blog

Why do you share every single post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Bloglovin, Pintrest, Tumblr, LookBook. Of course you care. If you didn't you wouldn't share the link with people. When I began I don't think I shared my blog at all. But I also only got 5 page views in my first month.
 It's much more fun having people read your blog and I want people to read it as it's something I'm proud of. I'm not exactly tracking the page views every day but I look every now and again just to see how I'm doing. If you didn't want people to read it you'd not let your posts go live and it'd just sit in your drafts. 

2. I'm not in this for the free stuff. 

I see so many people say this and then after a couple of months of not getting sent anything they give up. Genuinely I began Blogging because I want to share my thoughts with the world and I loved fashion and wanted to know more about it and document my journey. I had no idea about this idea of being sent clothes and make up but once I did learn about it, it certainly intrigued me, as it would anyone. But in order to even begin being considered you have to have a hell of a lot of followers and you have to genuinely be interested in what you're on about. So if you're in this for just free stuff you're in for a shock because to get free stuff you'll need to put in a lot of work.

3. That were pristine, perfect individuals

I can't tell you how many times I've taken a photo and looked in the background and there were clothes, wrappers, a hoover, a cat and kicked them out the way for a retake (sorry cat). It's not as pretty to post a room tour which has your underwear hanging in the background or left over pizza. So we make it look like we have perfect tidy houses.
 I think vlogs are so popular currently because people like people flawed so they can be like "hey I do that to". I'm far too messy for Youtube. 

4. That were happy 100% of the time

I made a pact with myself a very long time ago that the only emotions I would allow myself to post about on social networking sites are happiness and hunger. Stress occasionally creeps in but I'm probably stressed 80% of the time so one status a month is allowable. I used to be that person who aired everything on Facebook (I know cringe) it's why I had to delete Timehop because I can't deal with how irritating I used to be.
 Obviously bloggers aren't happy 100% of the time it'd be very boring if we were

5. It's easy 

I only do this part time with minimal deadlines and tasks so I have no idea how people cope with it as a career. It's hard work constantly thinking of new posts and new outfits etc. you also put out there a part of yourself to be judged and ridiculed so you have to have a tough skin. It certainly has its perks and it's fun and rewarding but it's not the easiest thing to maintain.
