Blogging Is Just Like The Movies

It's Friday. Let's have some fun! I've been blogging for several years now, and from time to time I like to write posts that discuss blog experiences. I've written about how blogging is like wearing a pair of heels, the blog graveyardstressed out bloggers, and even blog wishlists. I usually come up with a theme to encompass the topic, so this time I decided to use popular movies to discuss general blogging topics. Hope these put a smile on your face. Let me know what you think. Have a great weekend everybody.

So you want to blog? Ready are you? What know you of ready? Hmmm (The Empire Strikes Back)

How you feel when you FIRST start blogging (The Hobbit)

How you feel when a blogger steals your pictures or written content (The Wizard of Oz)

What you want to do to a blog post when it just won't come together (html, ideas, pics) (Scarface)

To all the PR peeps that want you to write something for free, peanuts or give you a guest post!
(Mommie Dearest & Jerry Maguire)

How you feel when you score that first PAID sponsored blog post. (The Great Gatsby)

What YOU think after you've written a wonderful blog post. (Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory)

Watch out for the blog bullies and comment saboteurs. (Memoirs of a Geisha)

How you feel when your blog post is a HIT. (no pun intended LOL) (The Breakfast Club)

How you feel when your blog post is a FAIL (in your eyes) (The Sound Of Music)

When a blogger asks you for an HONEST opinion and you go there... HARD. (A Few Good Men)

When choosing or deciding on a blog topic to write about. (Clueless)

How bloggers who are all about BUSINESS, endorsements or money feel. (The Godfather)

If someone deletes you, let them go. Also vice versa. I've done this. Don't take it personally. Don't get mad. They may not be into the topics you write about (it's not always a reflection of you). Sometimes bloggers just outgrow one another. The ones that truly love what you have to say will always be around and new readers eventually will come along.
(Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban)

How BEAUTY BLOGGERS (that's moi!) feel when a new beauty or cosmetic collection comes out.
(Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory and Carmen Jones)

 There are some SNOBBY FASHION BLOGGERS that won't talk to you if you don't own (Chanel, etc)
There are some NICE FASHION BLOGGERS who own the best of the best and WILL talk to you.
(The Breakfast Club & Clueless)

How you feel when you scroll through 30 pictures of the same pose, in the same outfit with the same smile. (Clueless)

Everyone loves FOODIE BLOGGERS! They catch the least slack. (The Amazing Spiderman)

Then there's always that different blogger. Love them. They stand out! (The Craft)

No matter how long you have blogged, remember... (Legally Blonde)

Ok, one more! How you feel when someone writes 10 blog post a day and EXPECTS you to comment on each. 
(Mariah Carey - Honey) (Ok, it's a mini movie music video) :)

lol. This was one of the BEST posts I've read yet, out of HUNDREDS of blogs I follow.

Hmmm...I know I'm not one of the snobby bloggers. I don't own Chanel. But I am soooooooo guilty of posting 10 posts per day - okay, not that much, but I did go on a rampage once. But that was totally because I was stuck at home nursing a newborn :O)

Anywho, GREAT post! Keep them coming! PLEASE!!!!!!!!

Carole Poirot said...

Hahaha, absolutely fantastic! You've really nailed how I feel about so many parts of blogging and made it very funny at the same time!

I am so guilty of taking things personally, no matter how much I try to be rational, I simply cannot help it. 10 posts in a day?! I don't know how anybody can manage that - to think how many pictures I would have to take, edit, upload for that - so no worries that you'll ever have to comment on that many here ;-)

Great post, really made me smile this morning. Have a lovely weekend xo

Irene said...

Hehe great post! I had so much fun reading it, and indeed many of those reactions are so genuine! Movies always have answers for life and now also for blogging :)
Great job at putting all these together!

Have a wonderful weekend, Kim!

Hilar! I could write a list myself!

Here's my contribution:

Beware of bloggers who have good hair AND do hair tutorials. They have good hair. Whatever they do will look good! Whatever product they use will look good!

Great list and love all the Clueless references!

Cee said...

Kim, this is hilarious! I remember the blogging graveyard post, and I loved that one, too :) Some of these images sum up just perfectly how I feel about certain blogging topics that come up a lot - especially companies that want to write free guestposts for me :P Loved ending this week on your blog on such a lighthearted note. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

Oh kim, must call you CRAZY NOW!!! I laughed my butt out, i feel the same way too, especially when i see a blog with too much notes,lol it feels like the world is coming to an end, not to talk of the you tube channels hahahakaka-bahaa..haaa.(Ghetto laughs)I watch some bloggers channel and scream for my hubby lol. Honestly when i started blogging i was thinking £££££??? $$$$$??? in my head haha... until i sat down and starred at myself in the mirror.Yeah.. i get it!!! Now i am taking things slowly and it has really paid off. You are hell funny.
Stay blessed this weekend
Kisses..

jo said...

Hi Kim, I LOVE THIS POST! You're hilarious! I can totally relate to some of them. You know what really bugs me, it is the local bloggers who never drop by to say hello. I'm a huge fan of supporting my local community but they never seem to reciprocate. Oh well, I'm just saying. You know nothing really bothers me. Haha. Btw, how do you feel about the new instagram video? I love it! Enjoy your weekend girlfriend!
