Reasons I am NOT a "Perfect" Blogger

I feel like a lot of times bloggers fall into the trap of only posting the good things that happen in their lives so people tend to think that they lead a "perfect" life.  Well today I am going to share with you a few of the reasons why although my blog may seem like sunshine and rainbows a lot of the time, I am by no means perfect nor do I lead a perfect life.

1. At almost 30 I still have not started my career.  Yup, you read that right, I still have not figured out what it is that I want to do with my life.  I graduated from law school, couldn't find a job as a lawyer and am still working as a bartender while trying to figure out what is next in my life.

2. At almost 30 I also know that I am not ready for children yet.  Yes I want kids sometime in the near future (I know I am not getting any younger), but I also know that our life is not stable enough right now to bring a child into this world.  If it happened would I be overjoyed, absolutely... but am I ready right now... absolutely not.

3. Despite the fact that I post a ton of recipes on here... not all of my recipes turn out that delicious... some have been major flops.  Maybe one of these days I will take pictures of all the flops and do a "Best of" post with some of the worst turning out recipes I have made.  And don't worry, I am not lying when I say this, my hubby can definitely attest to the fact that some have turned out less than desirable.

4. I am not nearly as crafty as most bloggers.  Have you ever noticed that a lot of bloggers post so many Pinterest worthy pics of crafts that they have done.  My crafts do NOT turn out Pinterest worthy the first time... and sometimes not even the 2nd or 3rd time.  Keep your fingers crossed for me that I don't mess up our corn hole boards when it comes time to paint them this week.

5. My house is not perfect and it is definitely not neat all the time.  I am not going to lie, I am a neat freak, but I cannot seem to keep my house 100% clean all the time.  I swear the laundry is never ending and there definitely always seems to be something to do to keep me busy.

6. While M & I get along 99% of the time, there are times when we fight.  Our marriage is not 100% easy... it takes work.  While M is my best friend and the love of my life and I couldn't be happier to be married to him, it still takes work to keep our marriage strong.

7. I get confused about life, I get down in the dumps, I have bad days.  There are days when I don't feel like getting out of bed.  I know this is normal and I am not ashamed to say that I have these bad days.

8. I don't blog every day and I don't schedule my posts in advance all the time.  Sure I do sometimes go on a writing streak and have lots of ideas for blog posts, but in no means do I have a ton of posts pre-written.  Do I have a bunch of drafts in my blogger dashboard? Absolutely.  Have I finished a bunch of them, absolutely not? Will I eventually finish them? Probably, but who knows.

9. My blog doesn't have one specific theme.  I like to consider this a "lifestyle" blog, but I don't even know if that is what it is.  I post about what I want, when I want.  If I want to post a recipe, I post it.  If I want to post a book review, I post it.  If I want to post about my weekend, I do it.  I don't want my blog to fit into any specific mold, but that is ok because I am writing this blog for me and for no one else.

Do you often blog about your "real" life? Or would  you rather just share the good?


  1. Ditto on the kids. I don't think they would have enough space in my tiny one bedroom apartment! I definitely want them in the near future but not that near!

  2. I dont have kids yet either. I'm not even married but I am taken by a great guy. That counts right and he wants both of those with me which is a first with any guy i've ever been with.

    I blog daily but still dont get what I want out of blog.

  3. Nobody's recipes turn out delicious every time! Shoot...

  4. Some of my recipes turn out absolutely horrible too--or there ends up being a huge mess everywhere haha!!! Actually pretty much all of these are incredibly true for me too!

  5. Don't worry, you aren't alone! I can't keep my house clean for the life of me, and I've definitely burnt some casseroles and cookies in the oven. Ha.

  6. Thanks for admitting you're not perfect! Definitely not enough bloggers admit that. Like seriously, I know you can't look that amazing every day. Stop the facade. I love your last point too. I also have no clue what my blog is about, haha. We'll see where the wind takes it today!


Comments make my day!! Let me know what you are thinking and I promise I will get back to you!
