I literally just need to write something light hearted and maybe a little bit funny, if I dare? I’ve got so many organic posts to write for my blog, but sometimes I struggle in the sea of reviews to find the time, not that I’m complaining! I thought this would be a quick and easy post to write, with no strings attached for anyone, and I came up with this idea while cleaning out my garage the other day. So I asked a few people to come up with some other things that prove you’re a blogger, or not. Are you even a blogger if…
You don’t have about 50 cardboard boxes in your garage/house that you can’t fit in your recycling bin amongst your every day stuff? Boxes upon boxes upon boxes I’ve gotten rid of over the last week. There were so many it required a trip to the local recycling centre simply because they had just accumulated. Everything comes in boxes!
You don’t have about 20 USB sticks that have been collected in goody bags or press releases from brand events? I counted five coming out of the garage today alone. That doesn’t include our personal ones, the ones that we’ve thrown away and the ones that are definitely somewhere in the house.. or possibly at the bottom of my handbag.
You don’t constantly have a camera in hand ‘just in case’? (Leanne, A Slice Of My Life Wales)
Off the back of the above, are you even a blogger if you don’t have an Instagram spouse? Don’t these people know how to style the perfect Instagram photo?
You don’t find yourself constantly uttering the phrase “Oh, it’s for a…thing” to non-blogging friends and acquaintances? (Chloe, Sorry About The Mess)
Your tablet and phone never runs out of battery? (Sarah, The Parenting Trials)
If you don’t own at least one marble background for photos, or have a specific drawer/shelf full of “backdrops” (aka coloured pieces of card)? (Halina, Vie Choufleur)
I’d been feeling a little like these tulips over the past few days: Past My Best. Thankfully the sun has come out today so everything is better and I’m definitely going to swing by a shop for some new flowers…

You don’t know the delivery drivers and postman by name? (Laura, Dear Bear and Beany)
You don’t have to raise eyebrows at your husband for attempting to eat before you’ve taken a picture of his food? (Lyndsey, Me, Him, The Dog & A Baby)
Your kid doesn’t ask if we can make ‘another video’ (Instagram story) ten times a day? (Sarah, Run, Jump, Scrap)
You don’t order the prettiest cake when you go out for coffee because it makes a better Instagram picture? (Becky, The Mummy Adventure)
Oh this cake was a success for Beanie’s birthday party! It is moreish, full of different textures and, wait… It’s got popcorn on it ????????????Best thing about it? It’s allergy-friendly and suitable for Jumpy (no eggs, wheat, nuts) #snaphappybritmums #glutenfree #wheatfree #freefrom #allergyfriendly #foodporn @allergy_blog_awards @britmums @foodies100

Your kids don’t have to wait to open anything incase you need to take a photo? (Beth, Twinderelmo)
Your two year old doesn’t automatically go to the middle of a door and pose like you’ve taught them when you reach for your camera? (Kate, The Less-Refined Mind)
Your kids don’t ask if you’re putting a picture on Instagram? (Emily, Emily and Indiana)
What else do you think proves or disproves that you’re a blogger? Whether you’ve been nodding along to all of these, or shaking your head all the way through there is no right or wrong type of ‘blogger’ but for me this absolutely epitomise the blogging side of me.
