You Know You're a Blogger When...

How do you know if you're a blogger?  Read what these 5 bloggers have to say!
For as long as I can remember, I've always been interested in how people think and why they think the way they do, which in turn causes them to act a certain way.  I find it totally fascinating.  We each have different talents and abilities, likes and dislikes, interests and desires.  For example, I'm really glad that there are people out there who like accounting.  I hate accounting (and pretty much anything to do with math), but I am really grateful for them when tax season comes around. *wink*  There are also people out there who do this crazy thing called blogging.  And unless you are a blogger, you probably don't think like a blogger or even know what bloggers think about in the first place.  Well my friends, you're about to find out.

When I started Sunshine & Munchkins 16 months ago, I didn't really know what I was doing.  I set up a new blog separate from my personal one, bought a domain name, created social media accounts and read A LOT of articles found on Pinterest about all things blogging.  Slowly but surely, I've learned about HTML, photography, finding my voice, telling stories, sharing my vulnerabilities and challenges with strangers and making friends all over the world.  Blogging is a powerful thing, even if it's only for the person doing it.

But enough about me.  What you want to know is how to know if you're a blogger!  Odds are if you're reading this, you already are one and are looking to connect and maybe have a little laugh, almost like an inside joke that only bloggers will get.  If you aren't a blogger, then this is going to be a fun little peek into our brains.  You'll get to see how we think, feel and try not to go crazy trying to manage our lives and this blog thing that you don't really understand why or how we do it.  (Kind of like our kids!)

I've partnered up with 4 other awesome bloggers to share "You Know You're A Blogger When..."  You can read the full post on Little Dove.  Then be sure to check out the other ladies and their blogs and social media.  You just mind find someone new to like (besides me, of course *wink*).

  2. I read the post at Little Dove earlier...I found myself thinking about how I know I'm a blogger. I think it's just carrying around a camera and always thinking about future posts!

    1. Oh my goodness, I am nowhere near being a pro at it! But I have learned a few things along the way that have been helpful.

  5. I feel like people put too much pressure on themselves. If you blog, you're a blogger. There's no college degree for it. You're a blogger. You're special and wonderful and don't ever let anyone say "to be a real blogger you must do x,y,z." No. You're already a REAL blogger.
