Day in The Life of a Blogger – It isn’t so Glamorous


I honestly think and hear that people feel our lives are glamerous. Yes we get in exchange for review free things but the amount time and  effort that goes into a post adds up. I have made sacrifices and currently I’m trying to rebrand my blog as not just a book blog. A lifestyle blog focusing on beauty, books and food.  So in a spur of a moment, I found myself recording my daily life as it is at the moment. This is the normal day. In fat this was a off day as I have been bit meh about blogging recently. I haven’t read much or felt like putting make up on. It isn’t a burnt out as I love still tain

It’s 9.10 on a Wednesday morning. I’m already back in bed , writing this piece from there as it is  cold. I have been up for two plus hours and already .  I just started breakfast and I’m about to put on  some TV so I can watch and read once I finished writing down..

In those two hours, I have been on instagram posting, liking and following to stay ahead. Twitter to  chat with my friends and seeing  who has tweeted  my tweets

Facebook to see what happening with my friends and  watching random videos.

Changed my top, so I could take photos and not look like I literally got out of bed.

Snap a hair tie trying to put my hair up so  I  could clean my face

Tried some new products I got in the mail yesterday

And my  brain is at a million miles an hour, planning and making mental lists what needs to be done .

Golden hours to take photos,

Write send and emails

Write reviews


10 am – Basically accomplished nothing. Watched more random videos on my phone off youtube , and now looking at websites and finding pr information.

As you can see that isn’t so glamorous. As I sit down and write this final bit. I’m doing exactly the same minus less TV and  trying to get my head screwed on to  write more pieces and shot some photos. Blogging is a lonely gig and whilst I wouldn’t change things. I do miss the face to face though and hope in future months this will change
