10 signs you're a blogger

The other night I had a nightmare about affiliate links. Like an actual nightmare. I had forgotten to disclose one in a tweet and this scary person started yelling at me about being shady and money hungry. After waking up and quickly double checking all forms of social media to confirm that this was just a nightmare and not real life I had the realization that this little hobby is taking over my life. I don't blog full time so I feel awkward calling myself a blogger, but I've come to realize that is what I am. Like a dad who spends his Sunday afternoons on the golf course is a golfer, I am blogger. How do you know when you've officially become a blogger? Here are a few hints



1. You have a designated spot in your home to take all your #flatlay Instagram photos 
2. You have a running list of post topics saved
3. You have a list of dream companies to sponsor your blog
4. You have a camera roll filled with the same picture from 30 slightly different angles
5. You have a strange love/hate relationship with GOMI and are ashamed to admit it
6. You talk about fellow bloggers that you've never met like they're your best friends
7. You have a set collection of items around your home to use as photo props
8. You've ever justified doing something or buying something because "it's for the blog"
9. You have at least a basic understanding of SEO and coding and graphic design
10. You don't think it's weird to host giveaways, unless they're loop giveaways


Speaking of giveaways, I've got one for you today! I've teamed up with some other fun bloggers to giveaway an Amazon gift card. You can buy just about anything on Amazon, and $180 will buy you a lot of it! Enter using the rafflecopter below, and in the box that asks what blog you're coming from make sure you enter Salsa.

I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
