Blogger problems, oh I have many...

There are many, many hilarious issues you may have to face as a blogger.


  • A Grade-A caffeine addiction. Before I came to the UK and met fanatics like the incredible RunawayKiwi (who comes complete with Coffee in London Pinterest board no less) I didn't like coffee. Now? Don't try to speak to me in the mornings until I'm cup of joe in hand - you're just wasting your time...
  • A ridiculous amount of confusion when a new friend asks your for your phone number - surely connections on Twitter, Google+Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, email and Bloglovin'. are enough, right!? Oh hang on wait, phone numbers are the normal method of communication...
  • An inability to stay at home for 2 whole days in a row.
  • Having a photo archive folder just for pretty skies. I wish I was kidding - it was just so much easier to begin organizing all my photos and having a 'skies' folder just made sense. Only 18,000 random shots left to sift through and delete over the years...

  • Confusion as to when Mothers and Fathers days are.
  • Panicking when a post is meant to go up and there's no wifi at the current train stop... then realising that the world won't end if it goes up at 5minutes past the hour.
  • Feeling like an outsider when everyone at home prefers to drink out of a pint glass rather than a tumbler. Including the cat. Now I too have gone over to the dark side...
  • Finding 'your voice'.
  • Eating lukewarm food - photos are too important! (As an aside, do you think baristas pouring Flat Whites are going to start signing off sick with stress/performance anxiety on occasions when their coffee isn't papped & instagramed by a blogger!?).
No longer seeing this as a shed door, but instagram perfection...
  • I will never understand the lack of English street signs. How did the Brits navigate without Google Maps or a husband on speed dial?
  • Watching the painful blink of the mouse cursor on a blank blog post 15minutes before bedtime plus the sheer popularity of a blog post you've shoved together vs. a slightly more lukewarm one you slaved over...
  • Too. Many. Photos.
  • Chosing a handbag in the morning not for aesthetic reasons but for practical blog adventures purposes (I am such a rubbish girl).
  • Not telling my workmates I have a blog, just leaving them guessing why we get up to such random weekend plans (one colleague did ask if I was doing everything because the UK government was planning to deport me).
  • Suspecting my colleagues have unearthed my blog by their pointed 'you should look into a second career as a restarant reviewer' remarks...

  • Finding inspiration in the strangest of places - a snippet of song, an errant thought whilst weeding, in the bath, a nibble of a cracker, the decoration on a downpipe, toast...
  • Envy of other fantastic, talented bloggers living and discovering the wonders of the world.
  • Juggling Twitter, Instagram,Google+, Facebook...
  • Spending hours searching for the coding of a particular aspect you want to change in your blog.
  • Having so many wonderful posts to read all written by outgoing, articulate and self propelling creative artsy types - not to mention all of the recipes you'll Pin and never cook...
  • Remembering that blogging is a hobby...
