You’ve Been Blogging Too Long When…

This whole thing started for me around 2008. That’s when I started blogging and it became my vice. I was hooked. I started with a beauty and fashion blog. I tried my hand at a celeb site too. Once I became a mama, that all changed. I wanted to connect with other moms. My friends that lived near me weren’t married and weren’t having babies. I kinda felt like I was on this journey by myself. My solution was to find a community that I could connect with about this mommy journey. I wanted to talk to other women who were trying to maintain their identity and style after having babies.

I have to say, this community has been amazing. I have gotten to know so many women who have become friends. Isn’t that always the way things work with this bloggy life? This whole world of blogging can take over  – if you let it. Here’s how to know when maybe you’ve been blogging too long! Is that even possible? LOL!

blog e1410925818326 Youve Been Blogging Too Long When...

  • Every life event is a bloggable moment.

Who am I kidding? Every day moments become blog worthy!

  • You have more online friends than you do IRL.

I may or may not be guilty.

  • You go to bed thinking about ideas for posts/new site design.

So GUILTY!

  • You inbox is a black hole. Will never see zero again.

Who has over 40K emails? That would be me!

  • Alone time with your lap top and a glass of wine is perfection.

Absolute perfection. It sets the tone for creation.

  • You take a picture of everything just in case you need it for a blog post later.

Am I alone in this?

  • Your friends are all “Are you going to blog this?”

Actually, they don’t ask anymore, they know the answer!

  • You happen to be looking cute one day and your friend offers to take a pic.

  “So you can blog your OOTD”

  • Everything you read is a post.

No matter if it was in a magazine. It’s, “Did you read that post?”

  • You keep late hours burning the midnight oil.

Because that’s the only time you have to blog.

Your smart phone is FULL of post ideas!

Bloggers, do you have any other things to add to this list?

Memories – We Made ‘Em

Tweet When people say that moms need a break, believe it! When people tell you that you should get away, do it! I’m back from a much needed retreat! I think that’s what I want to call it anyway, a retreat. Two of my girlfriends and I decided to treat ourselves to an overnight trip….

What I’m Feeling Friday… Road Trip!

Tall Girls Rock

Tweet It’s becoming more and more apparent to me that I have some pretty tall kids. My son is an inch or two shy of 4ft. He’ll be 5 in November. My daughter had her 2 year old check up recently and we found out that she is 3ft even. Both of them are almost…

Six Things I’m Going to Miss About Summer

Tweet Six things I’m going to miss about Summer? I sat staring at this question for a while. I couldn’t think of many things I’m going to miss about summer. The only thing that came to mind are the adventures I’ve been able to take with my babies. Having them all to myself has been…

What I’m Feeling Friday… FITNESS

Tweet This Friday, I’m feeling all kinds of determined. I have talked about my fitness woes before. You all were full of suggestions and support! Love that! Things are slowly turning around for me in that area. It all started with Twitter. Yep, Twitter. I got a tweet from a workout group here in the…

First Day Jitters

Tweet Sometimes we’re ready for the stuff that comes our way. At other times we have to get ready. My first baby started elementary school yesterday. I had so much anxiety about it all. I was totally nervous about him fitting in, making friends and all of that.  Preschool was one thing but this…this is…

What I’m Feeling Friday… Bossy + Glossy!

Tweet My wardrobe has changed significantly since being home with the kids. It’s been almost a year since I’ve worn my stylish “work” clothes. I miss my clothes! My new uniform includes lots of jeans, t-shirt’s and flip flops. Every now and then I step it up and get mommy chic. As much as I…

My Skin + Valentia. A love story?

Tweet My skin and I have a pretty good thing going on. I don’t always treat it the best, but I try. We have tried our share of beauty products over the years but, I have a pretty good idea of what works. In the last few years, I have been more drawn to skincare…
