Blaze On (7)Sometimes blogging makes us do things. This is what #socialbloggers was about this week. A bit of a general chat!

Blogging does make us do some silly stuff, sometimes. Not just silly, but just things in general.  Like, I’m much more likely to go out somewhere if I can blog about it.

I’m also a sucker for buying a product to blog about it. I’m never sure if I’m using BUT THE BLAWG as an excuse to buy it or not.

I do often buy more expensive products, such as shampoos and conditioners so I can blog about them! Before blogging, I just bought whatever was half-price in Tesco. Now I’m all about the fancy smancy stuff to review. And I’m not sorry. I like having nice shampoos and conditioners and I guess being able to blog it takes the guilt out of it a little!

When it comes to the sorts of posts I’m attracted to, fitness related is a definite for me. If any posts about fitness, weight-loss or running come onto my Bloglovin feed or Twitter timeline, I always click. I also like blog posts that talk about self-improvement or doing something big. Like running half-marathons. Which I did yesterday :).

And dresses, cute dresses. Yes please!

Please do read through the questions and answer them in the comments!

Q:1 what’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve done just to blog about it?

Q2: While writing a post, what are some special efforts that you make?

Q3: What are your favuorite types of posts, that sort which just attracts you to read it?



  1. It’s funny the things people do to blog about it. I know I used to plan a blog post for every time I did something cool. And I know that now I will always have a place to share my cool experiences, which makes me want to have more cool experiences and think more about life philosophies and all that, which is great! Personal posts or posts about ethics and life and morals and how the world works socially are great.

  2. I really do not feel I wrote anything ridiculous yet and I always make effort on all my post like research on collaboration to find out if it is legit and I enjoy reading all type of post especially beauty tips.

  3. I fall into all of these categories. I’ve done things I wouldn’t normally do, bought entirely unnecessary items and made all sorts of weird and wonderful things all in the name of blogging. But that’s one of the things I love about it 🙂

  4. I am new to this and haven’t really done anything like this yet but I am sure I will, though I did recently bought a eyeshadow kit right before starting this blog so when I did make it I could blog about it haha:)


  5. Haha, these are hilarious! I’m going to look out for this chat in the future! Great post

  6. I love question #1 because you know everyone has done something like that before lol

  7. I think the special effort that I’m doing for blogging is taking pictures of myself. I know it’s not a huge deal for many but I hate it. I have never been comfortable in front of the camera and honestly hate it with a passion but I do it to show how product looks on me.

  8. “Nikon eats first” is probably the biggest change since blogging, nobody I go to a restaurant with is allowed to touch their food before I snap it! Im sure I drive everyone crazy. Congrats on your half marathon!! 🙂

  9. Haha, I also once baked a lot just to post about it & its recipe – definitely tried sharing it with as many people as possible afterward!

  10. Sometimes I like to try new brands and then make revisions to the blog, but I do all the time only when I really need the product and even usually buy smaller versions of Shampoo, I would not want to risk buying a large bottle and not liking me.

  11. Ha, I dress up as Doctor WHo! Well, not exactly but a weekly Doctor Who inspired outfit! Just because!
    And I totally filmed two daft vlogs of me doing stupid musical things on SAturday for BEDM- then I thought I was ridiculous and so I didn’t post them! Oh and there are a LOT of items in my wardrobe that should not be there!!!x

  12. This is such a great post! I really like just seeing outfit posts, ones where I can see real life outfits! I used to follow some bloggers but I feel like so many of them are just slapping rewardstyle links to make money and they NEVER rewear items! It drives me out of my mind (end rant)! I tend to buy things solely for blog posts and then rarely wear it after that!

  13. I’ve been known to buy the odd expensive product JUST to blog about it… no one else understands!

  14. Great chat topic! It sounds like lots of bloggers are as nosey as I am, I love reading personal posts too! 🙂

  15. Great chat as always. Interesting topic, I like the idea of making a big cake and trying to feed it to everyone Lucy x
