Lot 48: 6 reasons i'm a bad blogger

6 reasons i'm a bad blogger

i don't own a dslr.  i don't!! i can't afford one and i really don't care at all about photography.  that should go on the list of being a bad blogger.  it really should.  i feel like you have to care about photography and lighting and all of that.  i take all my pictures on my iphone and the majority of them are blurry.  now i know its not good for my pictures to be blurry, so i really try hard to avoid that, but other than that, i don't really care.  

i use photos from google.  gasp!! i could get in trouble with google or whomever!! i do use those free sites nadine posted, but those pictures aren't always what i want.  that dslr up there? stolen from google!! oh no!! someone is out to get me!! 

i don't ever post fashion posts.  i don't know if this makes me necessarily a bad blogger, but a ton of bloggers only post fashion posts with just a splash of lifestyle in there.  i don't follow fashion blogs.  they bore me.  i don't really have an interest in it.  i talked about that here but if i follow a blog thinking it is lifestyle and realize it is allllll about fashion, i unfollow immediately.  i just don't really care about clothes.  ask my mom.  she will say shopping with me is a nightmare.
i rarely post recipes.  i hate cooking.  i really do.  i do not enjoy it in the slightest.  i equally hate grocery shopping.  that is why my saint of a husband does all that for us.  i am so beyond thankful for that.  i pin tons of recipes just to give him.  i hate cooking and have only posted two recipes that were baking not cooking because i do enjoy baking.  i like that.  just not cooking.  ugh.  i hate it so much, guys.  

i post too many photos of my nieces and nephews.  people have got to be annoyed by that.  aren't they?? i post waaay too many i think.  but i really can't help it! they are so cute and i am so baby hungry, i have to post pictures! i want everyone  to know how cute they are.  and if you ask where my baby is and why don't i have a baby if i am baby hungry i will slap you

i'm always sick and always asking you to pray for me.  guys, i have so many issues.  i don't have the best health.  there are times often when i am bedridden for days and i can't move because i am in so much pain.  like over thanksgiving weekend, i didn't leave my bed from friday afternoon until monday morning for work.  and i hated myself for it.  i don't like staying home that much.  i want to go out and do fun things.  being sick for that long makes me feel worthless, a waste of space, and a million other negative things.  and i hate it.  i absolutely hate it.  there are lots of tears and angry crying.  i hate it.  so that's why i post instagrams like this and ask you to pray for me.  because i can't go through these hellish times by myself.

  1. haha! I don't have a DSLR too (this shiz is expensive) and I'm completely fine taking photos with my smart gadgets.

  2. I'm with you on the photography...I'm so bad at it and would have no clue what to do with a DSLR!

  3. I don't have a nice camera either... the iphone is just much more convenient! Plus I wouldn't know how to use a nice camera if I had one.

  4. Girl I am the same way! I blog maybe twice a week, hardly ever post photos (although I do own a DSLR only because it was on sale for $180!), don't do recipes or crafts or fashion posts, and don't do anything fun in my spare time (because what spare time?! I'm always working between my 2 jobs!)

    Random question: How did you get your blog so big? I'm trying to grow my blog! I don't have a lot of money to invest it in right now though.

  5. No DSLR here and I don't care all that much about photos. If I have a photo to use, great! But it seems like some other bloggers have a photo to go with every other sentence of a post, and I just do not have that kind of commitment! And I'm with you on those misleading lifestyle blogs that turn out to be fashion blogs. Nope, don't care about your outfit, byeeee.

  6. I do have a DSLR, but I hardly ever use it! I need to get better about that in the new year...

  7. I'm the same on a lot of these! Ummm, I didn't even know it was bad to get pictures from Google. And I am so not a fashion blogger or a food blogger, I think I have a grand total of one outfit post and one recipe post.

  8. I am with you on a lot of these things. I don't have a DSLR camera either, I just use my trusty Cannon point and shoot. If I had a better cell phone I bet most of my pictures would be coming from there! LOL! I use Google images all the time! Oops! ;)
    Loved this post!

  9. I don't have a DSLR camera, and I posted today about how I am very aware that I am not a fashion blogger and even posted horrid pictures of me posing as proof to why I never would be. I say just do you!

  10. I love the photos of your nieces and nephews! They're so cute. :)

  11. I love this post!! I am really bad blogger too!! But I think that is was makes it fun!! I'm not a perfect blogger & I don't intend to be!

  12. Haha you know I hate kids so I just skip any posts I see with baby photos, nbd! I only use iPhone pics nowadays. I at least upgraded to the 6 so it takes good photos but still - no camera, never going to get one. too much $$

  13. Love this! You are such a great blogger; but it's always fun to laugh at yourself. I think some of the best photos can be taken with your iPhone really, so no shame in not having a DSLR. I am not a huge cooking fan either, but I love to bake. Or maybe it's eating all the treats afterwards ;)

  14. hahaha yes - all of these are me, too! Well, except the recipes. I love to cook. But struggle with iPhone picture shame in the worst way!



Hearing from you makes my day!!
