Blogger Problems, Part 1

Blogger Problems |

1. Writing intros. Can I just skip them and get to the point?

2. Having this super brilliant idea for a blog post and then someone beats you to it. Do I still write it? Will they think I copied that other blogger???

3. When someone blatantly copies you. *side-eye emoji*

4. When you publish a post and it took you three hours to notice you confused you’re and your. WHY DIDN’T YOUR BEST FRIEND YOUR BOYFRIEND YOUR MOTHER TELL YOU???

(It happens to the best of us.)

5. SO MANY DAMN FONTS to choose from.

6. When an interloper decides the food you’re Instagrammin’ belongs to her.

7. Writing a solid blog post and then chickening out from publishing it at the last minute because it has too many feelings and you’re not ready for the world to ~know you like that~.

8. Feeling productive because you just typed up three blog entries and prepared the week’s images… only to realize you literally spent the whole day in bed.

9. When people from your past message you out of the blue asking if you can do them a solid and write about their business or event. My blog isn’t even that big, guys…

10. When a maggot leaves a mean comment in your moderated queue and you want to respond but you know they don’t really care about what you have to say and they’re just there to get a rise out of you.

11. Getting an invite to an event you’re actually interested in but it’s scheduled on 11AM on a Tuesday morning. Do people not work regular hours anymore??? Are all bloggers full-time bloggers now???

Do you have any of your own #BloggerProblems to add?

    So on point! ???? i can so relate to 1 and 11. Here in the UAE most, if not all, events are being held during ofc hours. Nakakaloka!

    • Reply Helga April 5, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    I feel you on the last one! I was invited to an even on a Wednesday, 12NN. I was like “seryoso ba to??? Ako na lang ba ang blogger na may regular na trabaho pa rin? Huhuhuhuhu”

    • Reply Helga April 6, 2015 at 12:09 pm

      I’ve stopped replying to invites na because they always happen during work hours :(

    I was featured in Candy Mag’s blogger of the month in 2004 and when I saw how many people checked my blog, I freaked out. I felt pressured to blog something great and I caved. Since then, I’ve been meaning to find something to blog about but I regret not continuing my blogging days then.

    Looking forward to part 2!

    • Reply Helga April 6, 2015 at 12:09 pm

      Oh no! You can always start again. :)

    I can so relate with 1,2,5,7, and sometimes 8. I love how simple and pretty your blog is.

    • Reply Helga April 6, 2015 at 12:09 pm

      Thanks, Nickle!

  • Reply Christienne April 5, 2015 at 10:44 am

    #7 + #8, tots relatable!

    • Reply Helga April 6, 2015 at 12:09 pm

      #8 was my Saturday hahahaha

    #1. #1 forever.

    I hate intros but I find it necessary to guide readers to the main point. :)

  • Reply Grace April 5, 2015 at 6:26 pm

    Typos are definitely one of my main problems! I just get so caught up in my typing that I sometimes just do it on autopilot. Mistakes that I’ve made in the past: now instead of know, aloud instead of allowed (terrible I know…), their instead of they’re,…

    Something else that is a common problem (in my case) is writers block! Sometimes I’ll be so motivated to write a blogpost but then no matter how I type it, it just doesn’t look right, I can’t get my words out the way I want to and then I just ditch it due to frustrations –‘.

    #5 when putting titles to images!! Ugh. Also, thinking of a good blog entry where “a lot” of people can relate to.

  • Reply Corinth April 6, 2015 at 5:46 am

    This is all so true! Number 1 is one of the biggest reasons why I have so many drafted blog titles but no content at all, yet! Geez.

  • Reply Krista April 6, 2015 at 11:42 am

    I can relate to #7 a lotttt. Pretty much the reason why I can’t update most of the time. There’s just too much feels. </3

  • Reply Dani April 6, 2015 at 2:20 pm

    I may or may not have skipped publishing some posts in the past because of #1. Minsan pati endings are so hard to write!

  • Reply Pink Haired Princess April 7, 2015 at 12:07 am

    Haha, well said sweetie!

  • Reply Kristel April 7, 2015 at 1:15 pm

    Yup, for some reason PR companies schedule events within office hours. Too bad not all of us can join the fun (especially people with day jobs!)

  • Reply Hazel Evangelista April 8, 2015 at 10:57 am

    Relate. Hahahaha.

  • Reply Paoline April 9, 2015 at 8:50 pm

    #1! I usually can’t create an intro for a certain post because the intro gets too far from the actual post topic. #ADHD

  • Reply Sarah April 12, 2015 at 7:23 pm

    Just when I was about to write about blogger problems, did a little research and I stumbled upon this post, #2 was just a spot on. After reading this, do you think I still want to write about blogger problems? I think not. Haha. :)

    • Reply Helga April 12, 2015 at 11:18 pm

      You should still write it! Haha
