You know you're a blogger when...

Kelle Hampton is a household name.

People in your phone are saved under names like:
"Bargain Blonde"
"Young & Fab"
"Busy Bee Kristin"
 "Kentucky Jess"
 "Buckeye Katie"

Thanks to fashion bloggers, your shopping habits have become borderline obsessive/compulsive.

The only places you shop are from other bloggers' Etsy shops &/or Marley Lilly.

Your mailbox gets more love letters than it does bills. <3

You take pictures of anything remotely close to being "blog material".

Your latest meal was either blog or Pinterest inspired.
[Applesauce cupcake/muffin recipe here]

"#OOTD" is something even your husband knows the meaning of...

Sunday nights consist of picture uploading & photo dumping.

Your most recent vacations are spent with complete strangers.

Your new girlfriends live thousands of miles away and you've probably never met them.

"HTML", "followers" and "pageviews" are now everyday vocabulary.

The top of your wish list is your first DSLR camera
even though you don't know a lick about photography.

Your husband rolls his eyes every time you snap a photo because he knows,
damn well, that you're about to blast his face all over the world wide web. 
[Poor guy!]

When shut down, it was the worst day of your blogging life because you knew, that very moment, you were going to fork up an arm and a leg to buy and learn how to use Photoshop. (Or stick with a free site like
Amiright? Or amiright?!


  1. Spot on! The hubs is always rolling his eyes when I snap photos too! "I better not see that picture on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter or your blog!"

    And he's always asking "How many page views are you up to this month?"

    Ahh, the joys!

  2. I love it!! And it's all so completely true!

  3. True True! I love it! It was truely a sad sad day when picnik shut down. Thanks for sharing the picmonkey site. I didn't know about that :)
