So you want to date a blogger?

Everywhere I turned yesterday I saw people talking about a fab post doing the rounds about dating someone in PR, I first read about it here on if you want to take a look.

Well PRs you thought YOU were high-maintenance?
(erm, you did realise you are high-maintenence right?)

Meet the bloggers.

So you want to date a blogger?

Let me fill you in on a few facts before you dive in.

We are social media butterflies.

Bloggers are hugely social beings, if you so much as wink at a blogger they can put the word out and find out everything about you, and yes I do mean EVERYTHING. Before you know it they will have the name of your first pet, have added your mates on the Book of Face and courtesy of Google Maps they know where you live and probably have tweeted your ex for a bedroom reference. (By DM of course, we aren't animals) Social Media is what bloggers do. and we do it very, very well.

We love to share.

Bloggers keep hardly anything sacred. Names may be changed to protect the guilty but anything you say to a blogger is fair game for a blog post. Heaven help you if you have an argument. Before you know it, the full facts as they see them will have been posted on their blog for everyone to comment upon.

Did you have a bedroom "malfunction"?

That is a blog post just waiting to happen

Called your blogger by the wrong name?

New blog post online (bastard)

Anything you say can & will be used in evidence against you in a court of Blog.

And if you are dating a beauty blogger, there will be one point in your relationship when your skin will no longer belong to you. You might as well chuck yourself in a cage and call yourself Fluffy, you will be a guinea pig pure and simple. Creams, lotions and potions will all be slathered upon your skin in the name of research for the blog. You might as well just sit back and enjoy the new softness of your skin.

Peoples opinions matter

Erm, just not always yours. If a blogger needs an opinion, we will write a blog post about it. ( Are you starting to see a pattern forming here?) We also follow lots of other bloggers with specialised skills, we can ask THEIR opinion. There is a plus side to this though, you will never hear those words "Does this skirt make my bum look fat?" That is what Twitter is for, one Twitpic and those all important opinions will come flooding in in seconds. Never again will you panic and accidently reply "No, your fat arse makes your fat arse look fat" (That one IS going to end up in a blog post, you know that right?)

We are passionate

About our blogs, (what did you think I mean? This isn't you know) We put in blood, sweat and tears to make it work, we are constantly thinking about our next post, how to improve our photography skills, our writing style. You see that little notebook we carry around like it is a signed picture of Harry Styles penis? It isn't our diary, it is our little scribble book of ideas, If we misplace that, our world collapses. (although if you find it, then you will see just how passionate we can be)

We know whats hot or not

Dahhhhhhhling we MAKE it hot or not ;-D
Bloggers have their fingers on the pulse so hard that we know if something is dead before IT even does. And yes that does include your relationship.

Just hope and pray that one day, we don't break up with you by blog post.

Still want to date a blogger?

Are you happy to be known as the bloggers latest follower?

Let me know.

  2. What I want to know is this, what happens when two bloggers date? That would be interesting.

  3. Maybe they'd conduct most of thier relationship via Twitter, scary stuff, just hope they DM, I don't need to see vomit enducing declarations of love. Great post x

  4. I met a blogger, he asked me out - he cancelled on me twice... I handed him over to twitter and they tore him a new one.

    This is why I don't tell men about what I do... it would kind of hinder the 'getting laid and writing about it' angle I've got going on...


  5. Brilliant and incisive as always! Have to admit that whilst not in the market for lurve I am prone to wanting to tweet everything as it happens tmi or no, luckily my self editing function is still, just about, keeping me in check!

  6. this is just too good, shall be RT'ing this throughout the day and going to tweet it to my boyfriend ;) OH GOD i just fit the stereotype don't i.......!!!

  7. Haha this is hilarious! I must admit I am addicted to twitter, and seem to tell my followers waaaaay to much haha.

  8. I'm not ashamed to say I laughed my little head off all the way through this! x

  9. oh, this tickled me! Especially given that I've been on a date this week that could indeed provide plenty of good blogging material for my own little corner of cyberspace.

    I will admit that I may have reached straight for twitter when it started going wrong!

  10. LOVE THIS SO MUCH!! Spot on as always... I feel pity for the guys dating us (Sort of) X

  11. I was married way before I started blogging so the dude's got no way out :) (although I am nice to him and don't write about EVERYTHING)

  12. Actually, I think I am dating Twitter. It's who I spend far too much of my time with, anyway.

  13. I love this post, it is so true, expect the bit about being able to use his skin for my blog @:( he put his foot down and said No Chance. *sad face* think of the avenues Im being denied now...

  14. such a fab piece!
    would love to know how two bloggers dating would go - would a non blogger become a blogger after dating one!?

  15. This is by far my fave post!!!! Love love LOVES it.
