I've decided to start my own series called Things Bloggers Do. It's full of cliches, terrible drawings, and humor dripping with sarcasm. So fasten your seatbelt, you're about to get wet.
Actually, before I start, I just want to let you know that this series is not meant to offend anyone, it's just meant to help us step outside our blogging bubbles to realize that there really are some pretty funny cliches. I know that I partake in half of them, and honestly it's where I draw most of my series ideas from! So let the fun begin, and feel free to email me with Things Bloggers Do suggestions, as I'll tackle just about anything.
1. DIY posts that leave you more confused than you started
You know the one. The one you’ve been excited about finding, or even the one you’re writing...
The supplies are usually laid out in a cute, fun, decorative and picture worthy manner…not too many surprises, maybe a weird measurement or two, but nothing your Martha Stewart loving, Country Living readin’ self can’t handle.
Step 1 starts out easy enough. It’s easy to read, makes sense, nice pictures to go along with it…and you get into a rhythm, already envisioning yourself with the awesome project before you.
Then, step 2 shows up and even by the picture you’re already confused. Did they start another DIY tutorial in the middle of the first one? I’m pretty sure there are supplies in there not mentioned on the original list….so you go back to the beginning. Did you miss something? Is “fabric” French for the supply that you’re missing?
Confident that you have what you need, you press on, hoping that your kids’ Sunday school pipe cleaners will double as wire….
