Toot, toot

I was reading blogs today and realized, MAN, I'm a sucky blogger.

Here are 5 totally honest reasons of why I'm a suck ass blogger:

1. I don't keep up with my social media.

If I can catch up on ONE social media outlet, I consider it a successful day. I will have gotten my news, gossip, and TV spoilers. If I check Facebook, Twitter, AND  Instagram within a 24 hour period, I just may die from information overload.  Plus, ain't nobody got time for that!



2. I have never watched any Housewives.

Not the Desperate ones or the Real ones. GASP! I know, I know. I should be ashamed. I watch all other mindless TV, but prefer my reality TV with brain cells  *turns off this season's Bachelorette*  (Those guys are just stupid) Unfortunately, this means I have no idea why all these GIFs are even funny.  I suck, I know.  How's this one?




3. I make my own schedule. 

I work nights and I work a lot. So I post when I damn well feel like it. Which means I never post on a schedule. Hell, I don't even know how to schedule posts (someone please tell me!)  So link-ups?  Yeah, I do them when I remember.  At 2am.


4. I'm a doggie mom that wears scrubs.

It seems like bloggers are either mommies, DIYers, fashionitas, party girls, or newlyweds.  Well  shit.  I'm none of those.  I'm just a lifestyle blogger trying to be  funny.  My dogs eat my crafts and leave dog hair on all my not-so-fashionable-I-just-buy-what-I-think-is-cute-clothes. I don't drink (coke is as strong as it gets!) and I'm  pretty sure I'm about to start a petition to get that boy to  hurry up and pop the question.



5.   People piss me off.

I'm a new blogger (I think my 14 followers gave that away) and I haven't learned the in's & out's of blogworld yet.  But I've already been burnt.  I've had an idea straight janked and used for her own blog. I've also had multiple "sponsors" let me put their buttons on my page, but they have failed to do the same. To help those bloggers out...

         swap [swop] verb (used with object) 1. to exchange, barter, or trade, as one thing for another.

 So help small bloggers out.  Follow them. Swap with them (and really do it!). And don't steal their ideas.  And don't piss me off.  Because I don't like getting mad.  Shake dem haters off.


But no, really.  I'm awesome. Not trying to toot my own horn, but toot, toot. I think I make an ah-mazing blogger because I love taking bathroom selfies.

  1. Hey girl! I'm sorry to hear you had someone steal an idea from you. Ugh, so frustrating! You aren't alone about Housewives. Heck, we don't even have cable! To schedule a post, when you are in blogger and choose new post, under "Post Settings" to the right hand side, you'll see a little clock symbol that says schedule. If you click on it, it automatically is defaulted to Automatic. Choose "set date and time" and you can schedule when you want the post to be published. Hope that helps and hope you are doing well! Be blessed, Kristin

  3. I'm a big fan of scheduling posts. When I was doing my 30 days of truth I got a head start so I wouldn't feel obligated to "blog" everyday. And I think you're awesome and you are definitely funny and that is always a win for me which is why you were instantly one of my favs. Someone stole your idea? I will cut them. Okay I won't really, but what can you do to make your awesome idea even more awesomer?

    Oh and I know what you mean by the new blogging thing...I've been doing it since I think November. My advice to you is to just blog about everything and anything whenever and wherever and eventually you'll find your "niche". It's okay to be a work in progress. I'm still working on what kind of blogger I define myself as, but at the end of the day it's not that important. Just love what you do, mmm k? Ok that's all. :)

  5. I approve of this post. :) I had the same basic 'problems' when I started. I'm like: dude, I'm not that into fashion, I'm a style and makeup guru, I'm not crafty, foodie, or a mommy (except to my cats). I have no niche except to be my weird ass self. So I find the most entertaining blogs to be those in the same line. :)

  6. I schedule all my posts- I write them on Sunday some time and then fix them up on Monday, etc... if there are changes or pics to edit or add... and then I just schedule them to release in the morning. If I participate in a linkup (ie Thirsty Thursday or Fan Froday), I make sure the posts for those days match up the linkup. :)

    Scheduling helps me soooo very much. And I get to release posts at a time when everyone can read them, whatever coast they are on.

  7. It took me a while to finally understand blogging, and I am pretty sure that I still don't know half of it. I can't keep track of all of the media either. Good thing I blog with my sister and she deals with most of that stuff!

  9. I don't post on a schedule either! And I sure as heck don't watch any Housewives. There should be a button on the right side of the blog draft box that says "schedule" so you can pick the day and time your post publishes. But really, I don't think anyone cares about that. It's not like you can tell. I have my own schedule too!
