To The Friends and Families of Bloggers

I hope you enjoy this slightly funny tribute to the friends and families of bloggers! Also, make sure you scroll to the bottom for an ad announcement and discount code!

To the Friends and Families of Bloggers - Kate the (Almost) Great
To the friends and families of bloggers, thank you for taking pictures of us. For only rolling your eyes a little when we stop and have to photograph something. For pretending we don’t use too many hashtags in an Instagram caption when we probably do, and for double tapping them anyway.

Thank you for going along with our craft projects or fashion posts or whatever the current project is that’s taking up the living room. For posing for approximately 10 pictures with us until we get just the right one. For eventually getting so used to the entire process that you start to ask, “Do you want me to take a picture? You know, for the blog?”

We’re sorry that we become even more obsessed with social media since we started blogging. We’re sorry for spending way too long on Pinterest and saying that it’s “for the blog” and “it’s basically work.” We’re sorry for taking forever to find just the right caption for Instagram or just the right way to phrase a tweet. (But let’s be real, we’re only a little sorry for some of this … Sorry for that?)

Thank you for accepting this slightly strange hobby where we might seem a little self-centered. Thank you for listening to us talk about bounce rates, monthly unique visitors, and Google analytics in general. Thank you for cheering us up if we don’t get into the ad network we wanted and for celebrating when we do get into them.

Thank you for proofreading and giving your honest opinions on posts and ideas. Thank you for telling us if we have messed something up and for telling us when a post hits it out of the park.

And, of course, thank you for overall putting up with and/or enjoying this hobby that we love so much!

Bloggers – what would you want to say to your friends and families?

  • I like this post a lot! I would just say thanks to my family and friends for letting me ramble on and on about my blog work and the fact that no one is allowed to eat anything until I take food photographs. Ha!

  • This is so accurate!!

  • This is too funny, and so true! My friends just smile and laugh when my reason for doing something is "the blog." I would definitely say thanks to my awesome friends who let me run ideas by them, read my posts beforehand, and look at my graphics that I create!

  • So true for my family and the few friends that know about the blog. And it is a strange hobby isnt it!

  • Haha, I WISH my family was better at the taking pictures part 😛

  • Entering the world of blogging I never thought it'd create this weird kind of "hey guys I have to do this for x,y,z" Luckily for me my family and friends are incredibly understanding and helpful which I'm very lucky and grateful for. They may do some joyful ribbing on me when I take the same picture from 20 angles, but I'm still always surprised when they ask if they can help out or toss out ideas.
