I go to a fair few blogging workshops and networking events. no matter how many you go to they will always include some form of introductory game. Attending so many events means that I am always coming out as a blogger. I have managed to get my introduction down to “Hi, Im Aimee I am 25 been with my current company 9 years and for fun I blog”. Then the questions begin, they come thick, fast and often in the form of a test.
10 reactions to coming out as a blogger
- You must have a really nice house.
My house is ok? I guess? To be honest its a total mess because I am rarely home. Where does this assumption come from, I think it’s pinterest but please correct me if I’m wrong!
- Do you get free things everyday?
That is the dream not the reality. I make a modest amount from this blog and occasionally I get free things but they are few and far between. Mostly I buy things I like and then write about them.
- Do you really think your life is that interesting?
Yes I do, You’re a jerk.
In all seriousness it’s not about how interesting my life is, It’s about the challenges I set myself and what you guys like reading.
- Are you going to put this in your blog?
To be totally honest, probably not. Unless I learn the cure for cancer or the secret to world peace this session probably won’t be all that helpful for anyone outside of the retail life.
- How many pictures do you take of your food everyday?
15 each meal. Not really, I only take pictures if I am doing a post about food and if it was good. This also applies to coffee.
- You must have a million/ ten readers, Hey? (Laughter)
The amount of readers I have are actually none of your business. Everyday my readership grows and while my goal is a million readers that number isn’t a priority.
- You all just write about the same things.
Sure ok, Have you ever logged onto the internet. Blog topics are endless and while a few of us might write about the same shampoo all of us have a different opinion on it.
- So you make YouTube videos?
No. Just No
- You must love sharing personal things.
No, I love sharing what I learn from personal experiences. There is a difference.
- Why do you Blog?
I ask myself this a lot too. I enjoy it is my main reason I suppose there are others but nothing comes to mind.
These are the most common reactions when I come out as a blogger and some of the most amusing. What fun fact do you get weird reactions to?
