the 7 types of bloggers

Copy of why hello there!

Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today’s post is going to be all about the 7 types of bloggers! ALSO A QUICK DISCLAIMER: This post is a joke and in no way meant to be taken literally or offensively. So please do not come screaming in the comments telling me that I was wrong. (well you can if you want) ANYWAY…

lets get started

1. The book blogger

If you guys didn’t know, I kinda qualify as a book blogger. Most of my posts are bookish and I love to blog about it. The Book Blogger usually posts book reviews or participates in Top Ten Tuesday or one of those lists. They always try to find ways to rant about books they love, hate and some that are just in between. Heres an excerpt of what your basic book blogger might post:

Hey, guys welcome back to my blog! I recently reread (popular YA book, let’s just say six of crows since every book blogger adores that book) AND I HAVE FOUND SO MANY MORE THINGS TO SQUEAL ABOUT. It is such a great book! *insert picture of the book on their aesthetic bookshelf*

Yup. I am a book blogger, just minus the aesthetic bookshelf. Onto the next blogger

2. The mommy blogger

The mommy blogger is always excited to share with the world that her precious children said their first word or just got potty trained. I kind of am a mom blogger about my Orignal characters XD. Heres an excerpt of what your basic mommy blogger might post:

Oh my goodness guys! Asher just said his first word! I am so proud of my little baby boy! Also, be sure to read my post all about reviewing disposable diapers!

3. The Fashion Blogger

The fashion blogger is always posting styling tips. Photoshoots are always a must and don’t forget the pictures where they are staring into your eyes. Heres an excerpt of what you’re basic fashion blogger might post:

Hey, girlies! (and boyiesss lol) Today’s post is going to be a photoshoot! Thanks to Urban Outfitters for sponsoring this post and giving me all these free clothes! Let’s start the photoshoot! *insert photo of them staring into the camera posing*

4. The Lifestyle Blogger

The lifestyle bloggers post are filled with lifehacks and tips! They try to find ways to inspire you! Heres an excerpt of what a lifestyle blogger may post.

Hey, guys welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is all about my journey as a minimalist and my tips to help you become a minimalist! Let’s get started!

5. The vlogger

The vlogger always needs to share with the world everything they are doing. Whether its cleaning their room or driving to the store. They find a way to make a twenty-minute video covering their whole day. Also, most titles are click bait.

What’s up guys! REALLY EXCITED FOR TODAYS VIDEO! I cannot wait to show you guys how I DRIVE TO THE STORE! I really need food and I am going to shout out the beginning of vines in the store and see if anyone replies.

So now I am in the store and I am going to see if anyone else likes vines. HI WELCOME TO *awkward silence* chilies??

6. the artist

The artist always makes amazing art but thinks it looks bad, meanwhile everyone is jealous of their skills.

Hey guys, I just made a drawing I thought I could post. It’s of my ocs. I don’t think it looks to good but here it is; *insert amazingly beautiful drawing* see you guys in the next post!

7. The writer

The writer always is posting amazing stories and poems on their website. Everyone tells them to write a book but they just can’t for some reason.

Hey guys I just wrote a little short story! Tell me your thoughts in the comments! *insert amazing story*

So these are my 7 types of bloggers! Like I said at the beginning this is a joke, so don’t take me seriously! There are so many more amazing bloggers! I am probably going to make a part two soon, so leave down more bloggers in the comments!

Did you guys like this post? It was so much fun to write! If you want more posts like this please tell me! Bye for now!

becoming a book hunter// how I bought my favorite books for only 25 cents!

Copy of why hello there!

Welcome to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! I am so excited about today’s post because I am going to share with you all how I was able to buy some of my favorite books for little to no money!

lets get started

Books are one of my favorite things! But buying books can be quite expensive and sometimes I want to keep books on my shelf longer than how long the library tells me to! So I recently started visiting my library’s book store and hunting for books that I love.

After a few unsuccessful visits, I found The Mysterious Benedict Society Book 2 in the free basket. Yes, THE FREE BASKET! I was soo happy and I realized that I may end up finding books I want at the book store after all.

Recently, after searching the Library’s Bookstore’s YA section I stumbled across Scarlet. YES SCARLET FROM THE LUNAR CHRONICLES! It was the full hardcover edition.

For only 25 cents.

I screamed in the bookstore. ( if you are interested in buying scarlet you can use my affiliate link 🙂 click mee)

This is why learning how to become a book hunter is one of the most important things to learn if you are a bookworm. It teaches you how to have a sharp eye for good books at thrift stores, yard sales, library bookstores, ANYWHERE!

So let’s begin my very important training on how to become A BOOK HUNTER.

Lesson One: Free First

The first lesson to learn is to always check the free section. I have found many great books in the free section (LIKE THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT socIETY) so ALWAYS CHECK IT.

Lesson Two: speed is the key

Ya snooze, ya lose. Race right over to the section of books you are looking for and make sure you get there before everyone else. ( Just kidding, be respectful kiddos) Make sure you grab all the books you are considering and keep them close, anyone can steal.

Lesson Three: Always bring money

One time I went into the bookstore and I saw a sparkling hardcover edition of Six of Crows. I haven’t read the book yet, but I hear about it everywhere and It looks so pretty. I sadly left my money at home so I couldn’t buy it. The next time I came to the bookstore it was gone 😦

Lesson four: don’t use your eyes only

At Museums, people might say eyes only. At bookstores its the opposite. Use your hands to search through the books. You can’t always tell a book by its spine.

Lesson five: Don’t Overbuy

Don’t buy books that you won’t ever read. They will only take up space in your book shelf

aND THOSE ARE THE BOOK HUNTER SECRETS

Use these lessons as a guide to becoming a book hunter! Have fun on your journey!
