WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY A BLOGGER

Okay, okay, let me go ahead and tell you that I only put this as the title because I cracked myself up doing it and because there are SO many articles/posts about why you should marry _____. Like come on, marry who you want to marry and not because some random article had 27 reasons on why you should.

ANYWAY, entertainment of the title is over. I just wanted y'all to get excited about why you should marry me (jk jk jk) or get worked up about an article dictating your life. This is really just a post about why I love my blog friends so doggone much. 

When you start a blog, you think it's fun. Putting your thoughts out there and oh heck, it's a blast, it really is. Then... you start to make friends with it. Not just a few mutual Twitter followers, but actual friends that you talk to on the reg. And they're the coolest.

Rachel of Sunshine and Sinatra wrote a post about why blog friends are the coolest a few days ago, but I just had to add on.

They like to blab on and on. Never worry about a lull in conversation because if you've stopped talking, they'll go right ahead and start talking about themselves once again (if we haven't already blogged about it) and you can just listen. We're all used to having people listen to us ramble about our life, so never worry about a lack of self esteem. Every blogger knows why they individually do it, which means they have at least a little bit of self esteem. This may sound like I'm putting it in a negative light, but you've gotta trust me, having someone to always talk and always listen is the best.

Haley knows how excited I am about Europe.

They're excited about literally everything they're doing and everything you're doing. Everyone obviously started their blog because they were passionate or excited about something. Bloggers have to stay excited about their life and your life in order to keep up in all of it.



KATHRYN'S THE BEST.

They know the value of something being blog worthy. Rachel jokes about how she hopes her date goes bad so she has something to blog about. A cute outfit, a cup of coffee, a new restaurant? We eat that right up, no doubt about that.

They're crazy on your social media. They don't even have to know what's going on in your life to favorite a tweet, they just thought it was funny. And you're always guaranteed a like on your Instagram because they know how hard you worked at that editing and caption creativity. On Pinterest, they repin your original pins not necessarily because they like you but because they know it'll give you traffic. It's simple etiquette. They also know of and utilize every new social media. And by the time you get on, they're probably already following you.


Like oh heyyyyy Carolina, Dana, and Kathryn

They're analytic like you and love stats and trial and error. It's hard to be a blogger and not want to look at which posts do well and which don't. They're right there with you in the Google Analytics addiction.

They believe in aesthetics. Not only in real life, but in site design. It's so easy to put up a simple design and start typing away about how it's "just the writing", but everyone knows a pretty, unique site keeps people reading. They know your worries of fonts and colors and lines and symmetry and which widget should go where.

They all understand and respect your level of privacy for your blog.


Giveaways are the best and everyone loves getting together. That's it. We love it.


We know other people think we're crazy but it makes us love each other all that more.

They also live with the anticipation of a post going live.


The coolest blog friends don't care about your numbers/followers on every social media platform. It doesn't take thousands of Twitter followers to be funny or thousands of Instagram followers to be fashionable. A good blog is a good blog and that's all that matters.

There's no limit to creepiness and I don't even think it exists (unless you're a 50+ male blogger without a real name who blogs from inside of his van). They'll openly send you their phone number and email you and tell you they love you. And know their quirks and send them random stuff you see online (the other day I just randomly sent Rachel a picture of dogs playing cards with Frank Sinatra. It's casual). They love it when you tweet them back and comment on their posts and say cute things in Instagram comments. You don't even have to care if they're your blog bestie or not, there's just so much love.

They've always got your back. No matter if you have different types of blogs or are in different niches, they'll stand up for you and the things you blog about because they know you've put in hard work!



And if you haven't understood the backbone of this argument... bloggers care. They are some of the most caring and passionate people in the world and I love them!

love everyone,
Meredith

PS: I literally only put like a few people in here. I have so many more blog friends I care about!!
