I may not the blogger you are looking for!

See also “Why I’m a shit blogger”.

I love writing – but blogging – I’m not very good. I can’t play the game.

I don’t schedule posts.

I don’t write about current events.

I don’t know what a no follow link is.

I don’t read other blogs unless a title really shouts out to me.

I don’t work hard on getting views, likes or numbers (which is why they’re so low).

I don’t look at my stats. Unless something goes a bit crazy!

I can’t do SEO – I can’t be bothered and I don’t understand it.

I did try – I did reviews (never was I paid for one). I didn’t realise I could ask for money to be honest. Writing them was just not very nice. I didn’t lie – but trying to think of 100 words on nipple balm was a stretch for me.

I would make a terrible sales woman.

It’s a shame as only this week I was offered the chance to review a shoe shop and get free shoes for my FOUR children. Whoa Nelly! Where did the other two come from?


I am hoping that brands will be able to put stats to the side… choose quality – and my blogging failings won’t affect my ability to one day make a bit of money from my words.

  1. Snap! I decided ages ago I can’t write reviews so I don’t anymore, I don’t even try it’s just not for me! Much prefer writing because I love to write! I take my hat off to anyone that does cause it’s bloody hard work!

  2. I genuinely love this and couldn’t agree more. Such a refreshing change to read and makes me feel less like a loner for not bombarding my page with an array of sponsored posts. Just me, rambling away about the usual crap ha!

  3. Hurrah! There’s a lot to be said for blogging for the love of it. I know for me as soon as the pressure of wanting to make money comes into anything I love to do as a hobby I always start to resent it. Mind you I wouldn’t say no to shoe reviews!

  4. HUZZAH!! Lovely to hear of someone else who doesn’t consider themselves a professional blogger. 🙂

    I decided about a year ago that I would only work with a brand really adhoc if they were genuinely of interest to me and I would have happily written about them anyway, even if they hadn’t approached me. I work full time, blogging is a hobby. Why put extra stress on that!?

    Also, love the Snapchat at the top. Hilarious.

  5. Oh my goodness, you read my mind (though only 3 children!) I desperately want to be good at this but I don’t have time to dedicate to any other detail than writing my blog and speaking to the people who like it. I set out to support families with learning disabled children because it can be so isolating so that is what I am sticking with. A xx

  6. Lovely to read. I have enjoyed reading your posts, having only recently found you & from reading another number I follow everything she does is an ad so I feel like I’m just a guinea pig to be sold to not a mum who just fancies reading a few posts at the end of a busy day. Love your principles.

  7. I have similar feelings – I kind of need to be earning something off my blog really but am rubbish at all the ‘admin’ tasks of scheduling, posting on different sites etc. I just like to write! I’m hoping to get more on top of blogging stuff soon but I won’t be going out of my way to write about stuff I’m not interested in.
