I originally read this post on Immanuel’s blog and I could not resist a good laugh. Y’all should please check out his blog…he blogs about Faith, relationship and inspirational.
When I read this post, I felt like he was talking about me. I could connect with almost all of it and I commend bobo for still putting up with me after all these…So it’s this hard, chai!
Whether you’re a blogger yourself, dating a blogger, or are thinking of asking a blogger on a date…this is what you have in store.
A date isn’t JUST a date. It’s a blogging opportunity, an Instagram snap, some footage for a vlog, a snapchat story. Bloggers are constantly on the go, especially serious ones and a date isn’t going to stop that.
Whatever you say or do on a date, our followers will know about it. Lol, but most time it is true. You Spilt your drink on them or anyone? Messed up? They Blogged about it. You’re basically famous now. Are they scaring you off yet? (???)
You will become a professional and accomplished Photographer, whether you like it or not while dating us. Bloggers like or NEED photo’s being taken from different angle of lighting, ambiance and hue to get the perfect one. A cute date night outfit is vital blog content, so of COURSE , they need a thousand pictures taken before walking out of the door. Take it as a positive, you will learn so much about cameras and editing that you will basically qualify as a Pro and trust me you are about to like it
Bloggers generally like to write most time really long messages. They are good with words…that’s a good enough excuse for us sending you a hundred word WhatsApp message at 3am right? Most grumble about being limited in writing which is why some of us detest social platform that kind of restrict us to a 144 word count.
Their mood depends on their phone battery. Yes, it sound weird but isn’t because their phone battery life can turn their mood from an all time to high, to a scarily and angrily all-time low. Who doesn’t get depressed with a red battery, it is annoying isn’t it? THEY CAN’T CHECK THEIR TWITTER NOTIFICATIONS, NUMEROUS COMMENTS AND E-MAILS TO ATTEND TO, A BLOGGER’S CHAT IN 5 MINUTES…SOMEONE HAND THEM A CHARGER BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT!
There will be days where you will more than likely find THEM in bed at 3pm, still in their pyjamas, covered in biscuit crumbs and spilt hot chocolate or coffee. They absolutely love their lazy days. Even though their lazy days aren’t actually lazy in the sense of the word. They consist of scheduling, editing, posting, reading…and so on. OBVIOUSLY it is absolutely comfy to do that from the bed. So leave them to it…and NO…don’t you dare open the curtains!
There will also be days where they like a good cry to rants about how stats are low and that they aren’t good enough. This one should be pretty easy to handle. Provide endless cuddles, snacks…and give your best effort by remembering that post you liked, the one where her hair looked pretty and they were wearing that red dress? Well, it was pink…but good effort.
They talk about their blogger friends and followers as though they are people they have met in real life. Don’t be alarmed if they start reeling off twitter handles and blog URL’s mid conversation. Don’t freak, it is an obsession, they can’t help it
We might get a LOT of mail, don’t get worked up. That’s because they are sent samples and free gifts, blog stats update, mails from different clients, products and services they subscribe to
Even though they seem and look like a high maintenance, they can be the most honest, encouraging and supportive people you will ever meet. So don’t ditch us just because of what we do.
