My Blogging Responsibilities // YES I AM RESPONSIBLE

Haha… let’s say that I am responsible for the… ten(?) minutes that you are reading my post. Because I HAVE A LOT OF RESPONSIBILITIES AS A BLOGGER. MOSTLY. KIND OF? I feel like I have these responsibilities and that counts for as much, okay? Okay. #TFIOSreference

I think that many (serious) bloggers will agree that blogging takes work. Something I was not aware of before actually becoming a blogger.

It’s not “post once a month” which is… something I used to do. Haha… ha. Shhhhhhhhh.

And note: THIS IS NOT TO SAY THAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING THESE THINGS. THIS IS JUST MY LIST. AND I FEEL LIKE OTHERS AGREE. MAYBE. DO YOU??.

1

WELL I AT LEAST HOPE MINE ARE INTERESTING??? Who even knows, honestly. It’s just- I feel like people like to read my posts because they are interesting.*

This kind of comes into a tie with the fact that I like discussion posts and I feel like others do too. I just try to center my posts around interesting topics that make people click on it and then later become disappointed.

And well, of course, interesting posts are those that make people actually want to read your post. #HelpMyStats

*Unless my mind control plans have succeeded? Please let me know if you feel a sudden desire to worship at my feet.

I DON’T KNOW. AM I FUNNY?? I like to think I am. 

But even when I write helpful* posts I try to add those #funnies so that the people reading that actually don’t care about the topic are entertained. Aren’t I helpful?

How you guys should be towards me, basically:

Pro tip: Scream loudly in a kind of funny way and people will call it wittiness! That’s what I do.

*Are they helpful? WHO KNOWS.

Says the one that constantly misses her posting schedule. I’m pretty sure posting consistently also #HelpsThoseStats.

But I feel like it’s important to post regularly, like at least 1-2 times a week* instead of, I don’t know, maybe once a month?? (AND YES I AM REFERENCING MY PAST SELF. AND NO YOU CANNOT SEE THOSE POSTS I HAVE DELETED THEM ALL *laughs*)

Whenever I’m looking at my past posts, I kind of just… cringe…

*You guys totally want more posts, am I right??**

**Please don’t answer that question.

I don’t know, I feel like I NEED TO APPRECIATE THOSE PEOPLE WHO TAKE TIME TO COMMENT ON MY POSTS.

Like, THANK YOU GUYS. For actually typing words?? With your keyboard??? About my post???

And when I reply, I try to reply with meaningful replies, too. Not just something like “Thanks!” or something. I ALSO LIKE TALKING WITH YOU POTATOES. AND HAVING CONVERSATIONS.* AND ALL THAT JAZZ.

*But online, of course, because real life humans? No thank you.

Commenting on other posts = commenting on the posts of my blogger friends!

Commenting on people who’ve commented on my post, though, that’s an entirely different topic. WHICH YOU CAN READ ABOUT FROM THIS VERY INTERESTING POST.

But basically, I feel like it’s my responsibility to comment on all of my friends’ posts. So basically, if I follow you, and I haven’t commented on your post, that’s probably because I’m dead. Or I’m just lazy. WE ALL KNOW HOW LAZY I AM.*

Also, this is a good way to get your blog out there!**

Therefore, do it??

*How are some people so good at magically being the first one to comment on every single post ever?? *coughs* May

**SEE? I AM SO HELPFUL. APPRECIATE ME.

Watercolor DividerOkay, but I’m going to admit that I am lazy (which we all know, since I’ve repeated it 5839 times) and usually do these all in one hour after they’ve piled up. But basically, this is what I try to do as a blogger?

Anyways, this was a super super short post, so… FORGIVE ME.

Tell me your thoughts! (please)

(Oh look, I made a “chatting” thing or whatever it shall be called. And also, since I said please, I am obviously kind?? And polite?? MY PARENTS ARE TOTALLY WRONG.)

Do you have a list of “blogging responsibilities”? Or are you lazy? Are you on top of the blogging game?

  1. It takes some experience to realize these “responsibilities” so you have now graduated to pro-blogger. CONGRATULATIONS! Woot! In all seriousness I totally agree on these. Commenting is essential but I think part of that is just being a part of the community, letting others know you are there! and consistency really helps (I may be too consistent?!) keep these babies coming…

  2. “Blogging Takes Time.” Um, THIS IS THE UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE CENTURY. It is what I told myself when Clara and I started…like, oh, you shall have to carve time out of your life for this…but you never realize HOW MUCH TIME. And then Bam! Your life has been sacrificed to WordPress. But also, blogging can have such instant gratification attached to it, and in the long run, things really DO pay off, so I think it’s all worth it. ♡ Also…I find I do sooorttt of enjoy the social networking aspect of blogging??? Who knew?!

    1. HAHA I KNOW RIGHT. I myself was like “man, this blog is going to be a piece of cake” and then IT WASN’T A PIECE OF CAKE??? WORDPRESS HAS LIED TO US ALL??? *sniffs* I want cake.
      THAT IS SO TRUE. I LOOOOVE BLOGGING SO MUCH NOW that I kind of don’t mind the work. Except for HOW LONG WRITING POSTS TAKE.

  3. WELL NOW THAT YOU’RE POSTING SO LATE I CAN’T BE THE FIRST ONE TO COMMENT??? And I’m a kind soul. Always ready to comment on a moment’s notice. Aka I’m on WP all the time.

    You stuck to your schedule though!!! BE PROUD, SON. AND YES YOU’RE FUNNY. I remember when I was commenting on your blog for the first time, I was like, Dang this girl reminds me of me. AND OBVIOUSLY I’M FUNNY SO YOU ARE TOO. (Okay but honestly I try too hard.)

    Posting consistently is actually one of my easier things to take care of, since I have a schedule. BUT there’s the act of actually WRITING the post, which takes SO. LONG. OMG.

    And WOW LOOK YOU GOT A NEW DIVIDER THINGY AND ALSO A CHAT THINGY!!! GO YOU!!!

      I AM PROUD. Even though I posted at like 11 but IT STILL COUNTS. XD thanks. AND YES YOU ARE FUNNY. THEREFORE THAT IS A COMPLIMENT.

  5. Great discussion post! 🙂
    Blogging is so much responsibility and I spend way too much time doing it ahah. I definitely recognize myself in everything you said here. I try my best to blog consistenty and keep to a schedule, I constantly blog hop and try and leave thoughtful comments, and answer to each of my comments. Both of these take me around a gazillion hours each day but it’s worth it even if it’s exhausting ahah 🙂

  6. JULIANNA YOU ARE A RESPONSIBLE BLOGGER. DEFINITELY. (Well at least more responsible than me cough cough….) Comments are definitely a lot of work sometimes (sorry that was awfully ironic considering….um lol) When did you start blogging? Your blog is like PERFECTION. It’s the hight of gorgeousness (I feel like that’s not a word) and funny and yeah I love it haha. And before I go I just have to say that I had an America’s Got Talent obsession for a while a year ago with my sister and I KNOW THAT GIRL. I think she won….??

    1. HAHAHHAHAHA. XD

      Yep, comments are a lot of work. Also HOW IS IT IRONIC. TELL ME. (I’m super slow to catch on to things)

      I don’t know when to say I started blogging, honestly? I STARTED LIKE A GAZILLION YEARS AGO but also that wasn’t serious blogging. AND ALSO THANK YOU SO MUCH ❤ but are you kidding me? I LOVE YOUR BLOG TOO ARE YOU KIDDING ME. ❤

      And whaaat haha I just stole the gif from online I didn't know she was from AGT XD

  7. I fail so much at commenting lately (look, I’m trying!), but I never commented back. Well, at least not since I tried that for one week and gave up on it lol. I really try to read a lot of other people’s posts and comment on them but it takes so much time (and not to forget motivation xD).
    I am quite consistent in my blogging, so far I have almost always held on to my schedule and I feel like my schedule is one of the best things I did so far because it keeps me accountable and I don’t just skip out on days because I am busy or something.
    Great list! These are definitely all things that all bloggers struggle with and I would have never thought that when I started out as a newbie. Blogging takes a lot of time and dedication and it is not “just a hobby”.

    1. Hahaha, I feel like I always try my best to reply to comments?? It’s always fun because it makes me happy. Because. People. Are actually using up energy to comment on my posts??

      Haha I WISH I WAS THE SAME. I actually started a schedule BUT it didn’t work out. HOPEFULLY it will, though. Someday.
      Thank youuuu ❤ and YES BLOGGING TAKES TIME. *huffs at my younger self who was naive*

      1. I always reply to comments as well, but I do procrastinate doing that wayyy too often…
        If I don’t have a schedule, I don’t know what would happen to my blog, it would be a mess I think 😛

  8. YES! Okay, in love with this blog, in love with your posts and officially in love with you #yesthisisaproposal. This makes me feel bad because I just took off WEEKS being on hiatus so my scheduling is more than a little wonky but hey, I’m getting back into the blogging groove and it feels GOOD. And uh, I was really confused while reading this post, I have to admit because ARE YOU DOUBTING YOUR INTERESTINGNESS AND FUNNYNESS? I have been severely engrossed and smiling and laughing like a weirdo so I think that answers your questions. Ahem, in case the message wasn’t clear, I LOVE YOUR EVERYTHING (this post is too great)

  9. OMG YESSS!!
    I agree 1000988899998 % with you!
    My blog is barely a month old and I already feel the thrill and also the pleasure of book blogging! The need to comment back, blog consistently and entertain my reader through my discussions and reviews about books has taken over a HUGE part of my life. Not matter the responsibility that is required in maintaining a successful book blog, I have enjoyed every minute of book blogging.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I look forward to reading more from you in the future!
    Happy blogging! 🙂

  10. Hahahah about posting consistently… erm. *hides* April, and May were both an UTTER MESS for that, June was a bit better? And July is doing well so far so IMPROVEMENTS. But I predict it will be going DOWN THE DRAIN because although I have a schedule and post ideas, I have zero time to write them??? It takes so longgggg, gah. I love commenting back, I just have less time to do it?? And I definitely try to comment on other blogger friends’ blogs, though mostly I end up bingecommenting (aka me now) on their past posts and I CRY because I wish I could comment right as they post something. SUCH A STRUGGLE. Why life, must you get in the way of my blogging responsibilities??? OH and yesss your posts are totally interesting!! GO YOU. I have no clue what I’m writing half the time so. 😂 And nice chat graphic thingy, WOO!! Loved this post! ❤

    1. OH MY GOODNESS SAME THOUGH. My posting is not that consistent?
      I knowwww writing a post actually takes so long? Like WHY CAN YOU NOT BE CONJURED UP IN 4.2 SECONDS.

      I knowwww, I love commenting back, but I feel like I’ve been just HIDING from my WordPress notifications. And from my feed.

      HAHA THANK YOU!! I LOVE YOUR POSTS TOO OKAY SO TIS IS A COMPLIMENT.

      Thank you!!
