Blogging is a Lot Harder Than it Seems

Hi guys!
So this is a different, not beauty/fashion related, post that I wanted to do because of some misconceptions about blogging. It is literally as time consuming (if not more) than a part time job, and on top of that most of the bloggers I know are either interning, working, or going to school along with blogging! So for all you non bloggers, these are all the things that go into blogging/youtubing!


  • Writings posts and yes, this includes editing, taking a billion pictures, editing those pictures until they're just right, and then adding links to purchase, or links to other relevant posts
  • Social media this includes scheduling facebook posts to go off when you're sleeping and at work, tweeting, re-tweeting, tumblr blogging, pinning, liking, sharing (the list can go on and on)...
  • Commenting on other people blogs so you can make little blogger buddies while sending people to your blog at the same time
  • Filming videos including doing your hair and makeup, getting the lighting perfect, and editing them so they aren't a billion minutes long
  • Responding to emails from companies, other bloggers, comments, questions, and more! 
  • Planning for when you're going to upload what, what you're going to write/film, and deciding when to upload things before holidays and things like that
Blogging is a ton of work, but I don't mean to sound like I'm complaining! There is nothing I would rather do than blog all day everyday, but some of the misconceptions really bother me! If you're a blogger, let me know if I'm missing anything in my little list above, and I'll add it! Also, follow me on bloglovin for more posts!

  9. thank you Katie! I'm pretty bad at social media too, because I'm too lazy to schedule tweets and facebook posts when I'm at school, so a ton go up in the evening!

    this list is on point! I put so much work into everything I post and I know lots of other bloggers that do the same, but a lot of non-bloggers/vloggers just don't seem to 'get' how time consuming it can be!
