A little while back I wrote my Disney Confessions, and I had so much fun doing it that I thought I’d confess to more stuff, this time as a blogger!
1. I have never scheduled a tweet
Blogging 101 failed. Every single annoying promo tweet you see was actually typed out by me at the time and I hit the tweet button. I keep meaning to look into scheduling – I’ll have to for when I’m away in July! – but its not a priority for me right now!
2. I’m a little bit terrified of chats
Other than the Disney Blogger Chat on a Thursday night, I’m always just a little bit too shy to join in with other chats! I went through a period of doing some, but at the moment I’m struggling to find the time or confidence..
3. My marble background is grossly underused
For starters, its actually sticky back plastic on a piece of Contiboard, but actually I’m really not a huge fan of it! It works so beautifully for some blogs, but I’m more into bold and colourful tones!
4. I do 90% of my blogging under a blanket on my sofa
And probably wearing pyjamas. We all do that though, right?
5. Most of my photos are unedited
When I do edit them, its on a free bit of software that I’ve used for about 6 years because I’m too scared to try anything else
6. I don’t subscribe on YouTube
Quite honestly, I hardly ever use YouTube. When I see my favourite vloggers post new videos, I’ll watch them, but I’m not subscribed to any of them and I’m not even sure I have a proper YT account. I will, however, always share your pleas for subscribers!
7. I don’t have, or see the point of Facebook pages for my blog
I see Facebook and Twitter as very different things. I think Twitter is for promoting yourself, and Facebook is for keeping up with friends, and all I ever see is people complaining about how few likes they get on their Facebook page. Really, I would never read a blog I loved and think ‘oh wow, I must go and find their Facebook page’..
8. I bulk-shoot a tonne of photos for Instagram when the sun is out
Y’know, just in case it goes away and never comes back. Typically I’ll take maybe like 10-15 photos and save them for days when I don’t have anything better to post.
9. I don’t use spreadsheets
I see so many super-organised bloggers sharing their tips on blog-planning using spreadsheets and colour codes and I’m just sat here with a notebook and a pencil, ticking things off as I go..
10. I fangirl a little when amazing bloggers respond to me on Twitter
Even if they just like my tweet, its enough for me. Bloggers be amazing.
Got anything to confess?

People can overthink things as it comes to blogging. I find that keeping mental notes can help with blog posting and often I will blog when inspired which can be several times a day.
I’m the same with you on almost all of these. I do have links to some of my social media on my blog but I don’t promote at all. I keep my Facebook off my blog because I use that to keep up with people I actually know. I don’t accept friend requests from people I haven’t met in person. I don’t think I’ll ever use Facebook for my blog. 🙂
