Unpopular Opinion - Blogs are Kinda the Worst
Updated: Jul 25, 2018
You really don't need to read this. I promise they all wont be like this.
I can feel my face start to cringe as I type this because I am a self proclaimed blog hater. I don’t know what it is about blogs but they (not all) rub me the wrong way. I think more times than not bloggers send a few different messages that leave me feeling less than good about myself. 1. My life is perfect. 2. I know everything about everything. 3. I am all that and a bag of chips. 4. I can now put “Public Figure” in my Instagram bio. YIKES. I can’t believe I am saying this on a public platform.
Before I get ripped apart on social media let me say one more thing - I do applaud bloggers because it takes an insane amount of energy, thought, organization, creativity, time, and vulnerability to create a successful blog. You guys keep doing you and just know that slowly but surely becoming more pro-blog.
I’d like to think of this as more of journal where I will have the chance to write a longer post on the events I’ve done. This way I don’t have to bombard everyone with a painfully long Instagram caption (you know the kind) and one day I can look back on my past posts and do that thing where I think “wow what was I thinking”...kinda how I am feeling now writing this brutally honest post.
To be clear - Though my life is far from perfect the people who are in my life and put up with me daily are perfect and I love them more than anything. I don’t know everything about event planning or design but I do know that every day I learn and evolve more. #startedfromthebottomnowgot442instagramfollowers. I am not all that and a bag of chips. I am more like a few stale crackers. Finally, while my whopping 442 Instagram followers make me seem like a public figure, most of those followers are my friends and weird European spam accounts.
If you made it to end, thank you. I hope you read the next post which should be less bitchy. Shout out to the bottle of Menage a Trois Red that gave me the unwavering courage to write this.
