I've seen a lot of accusations of bloggers in the media lately, and it is super annoying as someone who is a genuine blogger and has a huge love for writing and her own space to do it in. I've seen several different articles about what it is like to be a blogger or what it is like to date a blogger and I can say as a blogger with blogger friends, none of it is true for the most of us anyways. Of course there is going to be expectations to this rule, people who are the stereotype, but it super annoying being tainted with same brush as those people as I am the complete opposite!


Get all ALL of the free stuff for doing nothing: 
First and most heard one by myself and one that is totally not true in the slightest, yes we get sent press samples but they are to review on our blog and share with our audience. We spend hours upon hours taking photos, editing them, then writing in depth posts on each item and on top of this we promote it and work very hard on our posts. I've never just received something for 'free' it is always part of a project or given for a reason. Although we get to keep the products and get sent cool releases and other things we have to work for them.

Blogging is easy: 
The amount of work which goes into one post will totally argue with the point that it is easy, from photo editing to writing and even thinking of the idea to start with there is so much to be considered and that can take hours, and even days. Although blogging is very fun and enjoyable don't take it as something which is easily done and everyone can do. It takes time, dedication and a lot of effort.

Blogging is so glamorous: 
Like everything else, blogging does come with some glamorous elements like events but we have to work to get there, not as soon as you start a blog you get invited to event after event you have to work hard and even then you won't get invited to all of the events. Not all of us get invited to red carpet events or gorgeous parties and even if we do a huge follow up is to be done and we spend a lot of our time taking photos.

We write because we love our blogs:
I am hopeful when I write this that it can stand for most bloggers, I write my blog because I love to write and I love the platform I can have to share my views with the world, whether that be good or bad, a review or a rant or something else, it's my space and the fact people actually care what I write makes me super happy about it.

Taking photos is simple: 
The most tasking part of a blog post for me, is taking photos in a cute location which is usually me in a corner of the floor with wallpaper stuck up and running down underneath to look like an amazing surface although it is never what it seems. I spend hours editing the photos after to create a perfect final product and it is definitely not as easy as whipping out my phone, snapping a pic then uploading!
