How to know you're a blogger (also called blogger problems)

Over the years that I've been writing this blog, I've noticed little changes in myself, both subtle ones about how I think and obvious ones about how I approach situations.  I'm never afraid to take the piss out of myself, so I thought other fashion bloggers might get a giggle or two at what I've observed about this whole blogging shiz.

You know you're a blogger when...

1.  Getting dressed in the morning means making a decision about whether or not an outfit is blogworthy.  And furthermore, did you post it already?


2. When you wander by a spot you think "hmmm, that could be a great location for an outfit photo shoot." What this really means is it's a unique background with bright colors or graffiti and the lighting there is good.  I've used this spot under the plants and these green stairs several times. There's an orange wall in front of it, and once my girl Akiko even hung off these same stairs to snap good pictures for a lookbook shoot we were working on together.


And, you can never walk by a spot without remembering that you used it as a location for outfit pictures.  Nearly all of Stanley Market has been my backdrop at least once.

The Murray House is no longer a spot since it's become an H&M. Argh!

3.  Speaking of photo shoots, every picture op is a "shoot" whether it be planned with outfit changes and different locations or just a quick iPhone outfit picture taken by the hubby (or my kiddos, or some other willing soul) on our roof or some side alley in Stanley Market.


4.  When you plan a night out, even if it's only remotely fashion-related, it is an "event." Here I am with Geneva for her A Pair and a Spare book signing and a little DIY project a few years ago.  "Events" can be little DIY workshops, collection launches, art openings, Little Bao Karaoke nights, the HK Tattoo Convention.  The list goes on...


5.  The happenings of your day can quite often become blog post titles. In fact, sometimes whole posts turn into rants about what's giving you stress (okay, maybe this one is just me because most of my week revolves around managing my time and my three kiddos). But I know I've had whole rants about other things, too.  Like the whole leggings as pants rant I posted here.


But here's my favorite one...

 

6.  Going out for drinks with girlfriends (who are also fashiony peeps) is "networking" or vice versa. It kind of reminds me of when I was in a bookclub and we never really talked about the books we read for too long, but really enjoyed the wine and conversation we had. The hubby always used to refer to bookclub with air quotes. 

So there, have a laugh at my expense.  I don't take myself too seriously.

What a sweet post Norbyah! I remember attending the A Pair and a Spare event with you. Wow! It seems so long ago, huh? And Geneva just keeps getting cooler and cooler. She's like knowing someone famous, right?

One of my fave pics from this post is the one at the Murray House. I know it's a bit of a catastrophe, BUT I think you'll still be able to get some good shots over there.

Speaking of which, I just commented on one of Jackie's posts that the three of us should try to get together and take pics of each other. Wine included! :P

Heehe.
