15 blogger problems…

I thought I would do a fun, light hearted post about some first world ‘blogger problems’ I know myself and others have experienced in the past. Let me know what you think of mine and please feel free to add in any of your own ‘blogger problems’ you have experienced in the comments ๐Ÿ™‚

iphone 6
1. Receiving emails that are addressed as your blog name ‘hi, milk’ I think this was the funniest one so far. That and the postman asking if he could get a signature for the surname ‘bubble tea’

2. Not being able to use your beautiful brand spanking new make up, until you’ve taken 1000 photo’s of it first.

3. Finally realising that the letter ‘J’ which has been at the end of many emails is in fact a ๐Ÿ™‚ symbol in Microsoft outlook, really brings a new tone to the email.

4. Winter. aka eternal darkness, where blog photography goes to die.

5. Having a never ending wish list, some blogger, somewhere, is always uploading new make up, clothing and home-ware hauls.

6. Parcel slips. You wait in all day sat by the letter box  because you know a parcel will be arriving shortly, You blink and there is a red ‘sorry we missed you’ slip, infuriating.

7. Instagram-ing everything. Because if you didn’t instagram it, did it even happen?

8. You go into boots for one thing and spend £50.00.

9. Risking your life for blog photo’s. Standing on tables, chairs, balancing your fancy pants camera on a box, on top of books, to get the best shot.

10. Writing out a full post, minutes away from publishing only for your browser to crash and lose it all.

11. Filling your entire memory card up with photo’s and only being happy with two.

12. Trying to attempt HTML and you end up deleting your entire blog…

13. Explaining to non-bloggers, what a blogger is. When Blogger doesn’t even think blog and blogger are real words in spellcheck.

14. Emails. Spam emails, forgetting to do your emails, when you forget you are doing your emails and you put way too many kisses, or even worse… emojis.

15.  Forgetting to have fun and enjoy it, sometimes these days it can be so easy to compare, blog designs, followers, opportunities etc. Instead of just enjoying it, meeting new people and having a bit of fun along the way.

    Hahahah at the post-man thinking your surname was bubble tea. So funny!
    Thanks for clearing up what J is!!

  2. March 18, 2015 / 7:25 pm

    Haha I stand in all sorts of weird positions to get a good shot! Good knows what people think of me ๐Ÿ˜‰ great post lovely, really made my smile! xx

    Hahaha I think I laughed at everyone of these points. Not the same but similar, I work for a family magazine we own and the other day I got an email saying 'Miss Moreton,' as the magazine is Moreton Hall Directory. Hilarious, I laughed so much!

    Loved these! I got red lipstick swatches on my postman when I took a parcel from him a couple of weeks ago and then I had wet nails the next time he turned up and covered him in nail polish too! He cautiously asked me whether I had painted my nails again today.. oops!

    Number 3 made me laugh so much, I spent so long wondering why people kept ending their emails with a J!

  7. March 18, 2015 / 7:48 pm

    I definitely had a good giggle at this! I'm always waiting for parcels and 9 times out of 10 I'll miss it by about 2 minutes. I think my postman must just sprint up and down my path, honestly!

    Haha some of these are so sad but spot on! I love #15. It happens to the best of us and sometimes we have to step back and realize we are all a community!

    HAHA! The first one made me laugh so much! But these are so incredibly accurate!! I've gone through many of these especially the waiting in for the postman and then seeing the red slip! Who knew ringing the doorbell would be so difficult? Great Post Milk!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ haha!!

  10. March 18, 2015 / 7:54 pm

    "7. Instagram-ing everything. Because if you didn't instagram it, did it even happen?"

    This has to be the truest thing I've ever read! Love this post!

    Funny post and all of these problems are true ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. March 18, 2015 / 8:10 pm

    Haha, this made me laugh. Love the postman asking for the person with the surname 'bubble tea'. He was probably like whaaaaaaat?

    This is such a good post! Trying to explain what a blogger is to a non-blogger proves very difficult!

    I love the Blogger not recognising blog and blogger in the spell check!

    I always make sure I write my full name along with my adress when replying to emails, so far I've never received anything I had to sign with Bubu ๐Ÿ˜‰


  15. March 18, 2015 / 8:36 pm

    I love love LOVE this post. I am going to share this because it is the truth. I love using the hashtag "bloggerproblems" and some of my friends scoff at the idea of being a blogger could be a career. So yes. This post is perfection.



  16. March 18, 2015 / 9:07 pm

    Haha this post was awesome to read! Great to know what the J was all about too. I am far too trigger happy with emoji symbols! It's an obsession *hides face* lol

    I couldn't agree more with number 4. Which leads into a blog depression too, haha!

  18. March 18, 2015 / 9:15 pm

    All so very true! No.13 is the one I contend with daily!

  19. March 18, 2015 / 9:16 pm

    Pah ha ha this is brilliant! Particularly the risking life for a blog photo. Fab post xx

  20. March 18, 2015 / 9:17 pm

    I absolutely loved all your blogger problems, I can totally relate! Love your blog <3

    Love Charlotte xxx

  21. March 18, 2015 / 9:40 pm

    Make sure your wearing pretty undies whilst trying to get the "best" photo xx brilliant!! X

  22. March 18, 2015 / 9:58 pm

    Loved this post! Completely agree with almost all of these – especially emails addressing you as your blog name.

  23. March 18, 2015 / 10:32 pm

    All of these – great list!!! Blogging is a whole other world – only tonight I was explaining to my beauty therapist who Charlotte Tilbury was tonight – she had never heard of her and I couldn't believe it. Then I realised I had never heard of her either until I started blogging!! xx

  24. March 18, 2015 / 10:47 pm

    Ahahaha number 9 is so true! I actually fell off a chair in my garden once while standing on it, trying to photograph some cakes nicely. It hurt, a lot!!

  25. March 19, 2015 / 12:34 am

    Absolutely loved this post. I find it do funny how blogger doesn't think that blog and blogger are real words. It always makes me giggle when writing my posts. I can definitely relate to all of these. Great post, like usual x

  26. March 19, 2015 / 12:39 am

    This post made me giggle =]


  27. March 19, 2015 / 12:47 am

    haha! i love this post! SO true! I won't use a product until a photo has been taken! And my wishlist is never ending! Xx

  28. March 19, 2015 / 2:26 am

    Ah, this is so true to life! All of these have happened to me at one time or another on this crazy blogging journey! Loved this ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ah, this is so true to life! All of these have happened to me at one time or another on this crazy blogging journey! Loved this ๐Ÿ™‚


  30. March 19, 2015 / 3:36 am

    This post put such a massive smile on my face, I can relate to so many I don't know if that's a bad or good thing.
    #4 though.

  31. March 19, 2015 / 6:55 am

    Haha lovely post! I can definitely relate to not using things until they've been photographed enough times to have a least one nice picture… I can be so slow at getting round to it though, things sit unused for ages and I can hardly contain my excitement when I eventually use them!

    Yes I get all of them apart from the first one. Hi Milk – that is hilarious and the postman wanting a signature for your surname 'Bubble Tea' LOL!!! x


  33. March 19, 2015 / 9:01 am

    I love this post, so true and the winter darkness struggle is real!
    Only the first one does not apply to me because I used my own name for my blog ;D

  34. March 19, 2015 / 10:02 am

    HI MILK! Hehe. I crack up when people refer to me as PBB – short for Posh, Broke, & Bored – instead of by my name. Totally relate to all of this! x

  35. March 19, 2015 / 10:06 am

    Brilliant post! This was super funny, I can relate to near enough all of these, I can't believe the postman asked for the surname bubble tea that's brilliant haha!

  36. March 19, 2015 / 11:12 am

    This is so fantastic, I relate to so much of this list! I'm positively dreading winter, as I can never take decent photos in those darker months!

  37. March 19, 2015 / 12:45 pm

    These are all so true and I didn't know the J was a smiley face until you just pointed it out. I thought it was a miss type or something. What a great posts and I laughed at every single one.

    Oh my, number 12 sounds pretty scary. I had some of these scares over the years and it's terrifying to see that you've done something clearly wrong and then googling everything in panic trying to fix this. I love this post, these are so true!


  39. March 19, 2015 / 1:23 pm

    I think another one would be getting so excited about getting a comment only to find out that it's just spam. (Not a problem for every blogger depending on the comment plugin they're using, but it can still be a problem.)


  40. March 19, 2015 / 2:10 pm

    Hahaha, number 9 made me laugh!!

    I didn't realise how important lighting was untill I started blogging! Winter really does just kill any chance of a decent photo – go away clouds!

  41. March 19, 2015 / 2:17 pm

    This was a fantastic post! I loved 13, made me laugh out loud!


  42. March 19, 2015 / 7:00 pm

    Hi Milk ) – couldn't not to smile. I have to improve my instagram motivation.

    Do you like red lipsticks? If the answer is yes, I would love to hear your opinion here: http://bit.ly/1MNJ47b

  43. March 19, 2015 / 7:51 pm

    OMG I love this post! I love the email and mail addressed to your blog name. I am a newbie and haven't had that issue yet, but I can only imagine lol! OMG when I figured out the J was a ๐Ÿ™‚ in emails was the greatest day ever. I always wondered why people kept putting J, like could everyone seriously be making the same typo lol!! OMG and yes risking your life just to take a good picture. That is so me. I will do anything for a good picture, even stand on my husbands back lol him being 6'2 is totally beneficial lol. Great post darling.


  44. March 19, 2015 / 9:09 pm

    This is seriously so great! Had a good laugh. ๐Ÿ˜€

  45. March 19, 2015 / 9:20 pm

    These are hilarious and so true! Number 2 is sooo frustrating! And I've fallen off a chair taking blog photos before ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. March 19, 2015 / 9:37 pm

    Lovely post ๐Ÿ˜€ I started now, and I can relate to many of these! Your last point is definitely important, i'm a rookie blogger and I really don't want to get stuck on the negative-competitive aspect of blogging.


  47. March 20, 2015 / 7:56 am

    Sorry but couldn't help but laugh at your postman! But wouldn't "Bubble-Tea" be a brilliant surname!

  48. March 20, 2015 / 5:37 pm

    Great post. I am always instagramming things haha xx

  49. March 20, 2015 / 6:57 pm

    As a new blog that's only been around for a couple of weeks I'm just waiting for all of these to happen to me! Wouldn't be surprised if they all happened soon! x


  50. March 21, 2015 / 3:07 pm

    It's always funny when the mail man asks for a Mr Charlie ๐Ÿ˜› my beau doesn't live with me

    Risking your life for blog photo's. – So true! Trams were involved, though I'm glad to say the last railway shot I took was of an abandoned one.

  51. March 21, 2015 / 9:39 pm

    I smiled, nodded and agreed with every one of these!

  52. March 22, 2015 / 8:44 am

    this is so good I laughed because it's true ! Nice post xx

  53. March 22, 2015 / 2:14 pm
