Yes, I am one of those 'blogging types', but I'm also so much more, too.
I'm more than just my blog.
Isn't the world of online dating just so, so wonderful?
I hope you can sense my sarcasm here, because I've not been back on dating apps for long, but I'm already tired of them. I'm tired of the small talk. Of all the 'yeah I'm good you?'s being the first and last minimal-effort interaction you have with a person, and of all of the instant stereotypes.
Like a lot of bloggers I know, I will always leave my blog off my profile... mainly because I massively overshare on here, and a quick scroll through my blog and you'll know a lot more about me than I know about you, which seems a little unfair, don't you think?
I mean, it wasn't a question, but a simple statement with negative connotations and like most things, I started over-thinking it.
Yes, I suppose I am one of those 'blogging types'. I drink coffee and will order avocado on toast for breakfast. I will probably insist on taking photos of our brunch date before you can eat any of it (but doesn't everyone now?). I spend a lot of time editing my photos and way too much more time planning my Instagram. I will sit in a coffee shop with my macbook for hours while I write. If we go somewhere pretty, I'll probably ask someone to take a photo of me stood in front of it. OR I'll plan a day in a location I know I'll get a good Insta snap.
Blogging is simply my choice of hobby right now, but it's not the only thing that defines me, that interests me, or makes me who I am.
Like all of us, I could go on.
I'll never be embarrassed about being a blogger. I love it a lot, it has given me skills that I never would've gotten before, and there's no doubt about it that I wouldn't be where I am today without my little blog. I have met the best of friends through the industry, my confidence has blossomed and I'm constantly inspired every day by the content that gets produced by the community.
So yes, I am one of those 'blogging types' and I'm pretty damn proud of it, but there's also so much more to me, too.
