When can I call myself a blogger?

IMG_3121

I met up with someone recently, who I hadn’t seen for some time. We chatted about our children and caught up. And then we got onto the subject of work. I asked her how hers was going – to which she told me she was still where she was, and that she’d been promoted. I congratulated her. I then proceeded to tell her that I hadn’t returned to work after the birth of my twins.

“But you’re a blogger now aren’t you? I read your blog.” she said.

Awkward silence – and a bit of embarrassment on my part.

Since then, I’ve been thinking about that conversation a lot. Am I really a blogger now? I haven’t considered it as my ‘job’. More of a hobby – with benefits. But should I be introducing myself as a stay-at-home-Mum AND parenting blogger to people that ask what I do for a living nowadays?

I’m not so sure.

I have always felt a bit uncomfortable giving myself that label – of blogger – for I haven’t felt as though I have got there…yet. Not properly earned that title.

But what does it mean to ‘get there’. And who decides? And when will I know? Do you suddenly wake up one morning as a blogger?

When I started out blogging, I had NO IDEA what I was doing. I set up a WordPress.com, free blog with no research at all. Probably as a bit of escapism from my role as Mummy, and definitely to fuel a passion for writing. And once I discovered Twitter, other bloggers, other blogs and this whole, new, online world…I realised that there was far more to it than just publishing your writing. (If you want it, that is).

And so here I am – 14 months later and doing OK. I’d say. For I publish posts. Review products, days out, holidays. Am a brand ambassador. I receive money for sponsored posts. And I have secured a part-time blogging & social media management job as a result of my blog. So surely that qualifies me being able to say I am a blogger?

Perhaps.

It’s not like other jobs though. ‘Real’ ones, where you go for a job interview, get the job, receive your contract, start on day one and then you’re an official Accountant, or a Nurse. With blogging it feels a bit different.

A hobby. That I started. That is going well. And becoming something else.

So – when can you call yourself a blogger?

Honestly? Well you’re a blogger the moment you start a blog and publish a post really aren’t you? That’s it right there. Pure and simple. The rest of the role is all down to what you want out of it, and your own personal aims and goals. Because, despite there being thousands and thousands of us, each individual person has their own reason for doing it and their own wants and needs from it.

And as for going pro; being a pro-blogger – well I guess most would say it is when you monetise your blog, i.e. you earn from it. Well again, whatever that figure may be would vary from person to person. There are the people who are delighted to earn a little extra cash here and there, right through to those earning a very decent living from it.

Blogging & me?…

Well I’m going to see where this amazing experience continues to takes me and try not to overthink it all too much. Because as long as I continue to thoroughly enjoy it, get fantastic opportunities and carry on making amazing friends from it, then that’ll do me very nicely, thank you.

Oh, and if anyone does ask me what I do for a living (from now on), then I will be telling them that I am a devoted and happy stay-at-home-Mum as well as a very proud blogger too.

    Oh Jess, I think this is one of my favourite posts. You’re so right though, when can you actually call yourself a blogger? I always say to people… Oh and I write a blog…. I think I should just say … And I’m a blogger…. Yeah, come on, let’s say that from now on, xx

      Thanks love. I know, I just haven’t felt right saying that “I am a blogger” openly to people, when indeed we are! Silly really but I know a lot of people feel the same – maybe we should be confident and be very proud of how hard we work!!!!! xx

  2. June 10, 2015 / 10:25 pm

    I actually just wrote about going ‘pro’ soon – I think it’s ok to say that when you begin to monitise your site. For me, I want to be able to be proud of my site so have decided to be brave and just come right out and say – I’m an online writer, or blogger (clearly, I still have issues with the word and term blogger / not sure why?!) great post x

    I love this post jess! I put something the other day on Instagram about my kids being a bloggers kids now. As soon as I hit ‘share’ I was immediately weirded out! I thought about deleting it because…well I’ve been at it 5 minutes how could I dare call myself a blogger?!?! But I suppose I am…I blog, that makes me a blogger surely?!?! If I worked in a restaurant I’d consider myself a waitress, whether I was 3 hours into my first shift or had been there ten years! So let’s say it loud and proud…but maybe il consider myself a trainee x

    I think trying not to overthink it too much is definitely a great plan. I get terribly embarrassed when people from my day to day life comment about my blog in person, it can be a bit awkward but then usually they are a bit eye rolly and I downplay it. I find having a blog and having a child are both things you can’t really explain to someone else if they don’t have them. Fab post lovely xxx

  7. June 11, 2015 / 10:47 am

    Love this post Jess, I often think the same. I always say I’m a stay at home mum and never tell people I have a blog, sometimes people look at me like I’m mad when I tell them so I tend to keep it quiet! I guess it is a job however you go about it. You are right too, as soon as you hit publish you are a blogger but it is odd when you start to call yourself that outside the blogging world! Almost like admitting a secret, haha! xxx

Maybe it is something to do with the industry – but I am definitely going to be more confident about saying I am a blogger from now on for all the hard work I have put in! Thanks for the comment lovely xx

  11. June 11, 2015 / 2:59 pm

    If you write, you’re a writer. So if you blog, you’re a blogger! And the great thing about blogging is that you can publish what you write, without waiting for someone else to do it.
    You’ve got a lot further in 14 months than I have and I do sometimes wonder what or why I’m doing this blogging lark. But then someone leaves an encouraging comment and there’s the reward, and the drug, that keeps me coming back to that login screen.
    I’m reading a book at the moment that says we should all just do what we love and see where it takes us. So it looks like you are doing just that. I’d love to have a part time job blogging and doing social media management – sounds like a great way to balance child care, earning money and writing for love. If you have any tips please drop me a line! 🙂

      I know – stating you are now a ‘pro-blogger’ is such a subjective area. Some would say there were because they’ve achieved their ambitions, and goals, and others wouldn’t even say they were even close! I am not a pro-blogger either – but loving being a blogger and enjoying this amazing experience so much xx

  14. June 11, 2015 / 7:58 pm

    Great post! I would kind of like to call myself a blogger but I’m just a hobbyist. I feel so jealous of people who are making a career of it but I already have a career I love and I’m lucky to have that and a hobby like this. I don’t think you should feel shy about calling yourself as a blogger – reading your blog your are a great writer and your blog looks fantastic too. #brilliantblogposts

    Great post. I think there’s definitely a difference between thinking of yourself as a blogger in your own head, and actually telling people about doing it. I’m new to it all, and at the moment it’s a hobby for me which is becoming very addictive, very quickly. I’d love to think that in a year’s time I could call myself a proper blogger – whatever that is!

    This is definitely an interesting post. Its funny how we get a little weird when speaking to our ‘outside of blogging’ friends. I don’t really speak about my blog to friends, though my best friend commented on a post this morning. I do introduce myself as a blogger at events, but would I do this in the normal world ? Probably not. Very thought provoking Jess xx

    Loved this. Such a good question. People can be really judgey about what you call yourself! I’d love to call myself a writer…. That’s like my “blogger” taboo. Weirdly I think it’s ok to say I’m a blogger but maybe because I don’t expect anyone to think that’s my job. (They all know I have a dull as dishwater job). But I feel if I said I was a writer I’d get shot down in flames for being so arrogant! Ha! However if you get money from your blog then you can definitely say you’re a blogger and that’s your job!

    I’m always MORTIFIED if anybody mentions my blog (like when my husband told the guy in PC World that one of the reasons we use a laptop regularly is for my blog or when I was at a meeting and my colleague said “Maybe you should speak to somebody about it then rather than writing about it on your blog) and I don’t know why I get so embarrassed? Maybe it seems a bit vain? Anyway, I never bring up my blog and I don’t even know if my own Dad knows I have one! But if I were making money from it, that would be a whole different story. Because that would seem like more than a “little hobby” (not my words!). I think anybody who is making money from blogging is surely a blogger but at the same time anybody who writes and shares and connects is a blogger too. But this is definitely an interesting subject! x

    You are so right. I haven’t referred to myself as a blogger, just that I write a blog. But we are indeed all bloggers! I think I’ve written enough posts over the last year to call myself a blogger. I guess I’m now a mum, event manager and blogger! It’s no wonder I’m busy! #sundaystars

I’m just about to leave my job and have set up a small business but in honesty Ill tend to spend more time on my blog so that makes me ablog get, right?

    Such an interesting post – I agree, I think you are a blogger the minute you have your blog up and running, and rolling out content but I guess there are lots of different “levels” of blogger from novice to queen bee but so long as you are fulfilled in what you do that all that really counts 🙂 #SundayStars

    A lovely post, and you’re right. You’re a blogger from the moment you hit publish on that very first post. A lot of the time we can get lost in the ‘why am I doing this?’, and lose sight of what we really wanted to achieve. Stats, ratings, PR opportunities, they’re all lovely but they’re not everything. First and foremost you need a love of blogging. And from reading this post I can tell that’s what you have. I love the ending to this post. I look forward to reading more of your posts. I’ve discovered your blog through the #brilliantblogposts linky. Thanks for sharing. xx

      Thank you so much. You do have to love writing and creating because it is so time costuming – so the love and passion for writing I have always keeps me going and draws me back! Thanks for the lovely comment, x

    I think you more than qualify to call yourself a blogger. You clearly put lots of time an effort into everything you do so go out and be proud of what you have accomplished #SundayStars

    Great post Jess. I hate labels. I have so many labels that I don’t want them to detract from the fact that I am me. I think I am happier with “I write a blog”.

    You’re more than qualified to call yourself a blogger – and a fabulous one at that 🙂 you might not have interviewed for the ‘job’ but by putting out posts, you’re opening yourself up to being interviewed by your readers every day – and they will either come back or not – and of course they will!

    Hello Jess what a great post. Everything
    You discussed with regards to calling yourself a blogger resonates with me soooo much! Like you I never really thought of myself as a blogger as such because it’s my hobby with a few extra perks at the moment. But reading his definitely reaffirms to me well, actually, I am a blogger. So thank you for a great post! And it was absolutely lovely to meet you. Xxx

    I LOVE this post! I think it is one of the best posts you have ever read and it is definitely one that I assosciate with hugely. I am not sure that I can call myself a proper blogger. I feel like I am just bluffing my way through it all. But this post has made me proud of my writing and I am going to call myself a blogger. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
