What bloggers say and what they mean

November 12, 2011
What they say : I started blogging for myself. This is my space and my creative platform
What they mean : Okay its been three months and I have five followers. Five???!! Hmph.

What they say : I absolutely hate the “Follow me/I’ll follow you back” kind of comments.
What they mean : So I left such comments on about 12 blogs and not ONE had the decency to follow me bak! Huh!

What they say : Oh my gosh! I absolutely love your blog!
What they mean : You better love mine right back!

What they say : I am hosting a giveaway as a thank you to my lovely followers!
What they mean : Ok faithful followers! Spread the word and get me more followers!

What they say : Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long!
What they mean : I have had the most boring, lifeless week and I have no clue what to blog about.

What they say : I am a fashion blogger.
What they mean : I click meaningless/grainy/blurry pictures of myself and post them on my blog
I cut/copy/paste pictures from fashion shows (from google of course) and post them on my blog
I am jobless. So I shop. Then I dress up. I make my boyfriend click my pictures. I post them on my blog. I shop again. Wheeee!

What they say : I don’t think I can categorize my style. Its continuously evolving.
What they mean : I have no clue about what suits me. Mix and match? Umm… no idea! So I just look at my favorite bloggers, buy the same clothes and voila! I am a fashion blogger!

What they say : I just created a facebook page for my blog! Check it out!
What they mean : Check it out = Follow me. Also on twitter. And bloglovin. And Lookbook. And stylepile. And everywhere else. And of course GFC (Duh!) But don’t stalk me if you spot me on the road. Now that following I don’t like.

What they say : This xyz trend is so in right now!
What they mean : What? I know it looks hideous but everyone else is wearing it and since I have nothing better to do, I follow it too!

This is just for laughs. No offense meant to anyone! I know there are genuine bloggers out there and you guys know who you are :). But there is no denying that such (like the ones above) people exist too!
Truth be told, I am jobless right now with nothing better to do!Β 

Okay then, you! Follow me. NOW! πŸ˜‰

Are you tired of these grey denims yet? Well you are going to be seeing a lot more of them this winter!

Walking backwards πŸ˜›
Wearing :
Grey jeans – RecapΒ 
Black tee – Lee
Black and pink polka dot top – MacysΒ 
Bangles – Accessorize
Shoes – Rubi shoes (Sydney)
Bag – GiftΒ 

p.s – I stopped writing this ‘where-i-bought-what’ list. But since I started getting comments from people asking me where I bought certain things, I just thought I’d start again! Let me know if you want this or not.. or if doesn’t make any difference either way!

p.p.s – I absolutely loved Rockstar movie! I think I have a thing for weird story-lines and abrupt endings! And of course great music πŸ™‚

    This fashion blogging thing has not caught up in Kerala. Whenever I ask an opinion from my friends about a style they shout back asking me If I don't have anything better to do :(. Anyways, nice post.

    Thanks! πŸ™‚


    If that's the case you should disagree with all the points. There are some, who mean exactly what they say. Yes including the fashion blogger bit πŸ™‚


  • Reply Pria November 14, 2011 at 4:30 am

    The absolutely agreeable point is the giveaways. I don't understand the concept.. and people liking the blog just for the gift..
    And the polka dots top is cute! πŸ™‚

  • Reply Suruchi November 14, 2011 at 4:58 am

    haha…so many bloggers and comments are actually about all that you've said.

    thankfully after some experience you can sieve the genuine from the just-for-the-sake types:-)

    i smiled through the entire list…you are one fashion blogger with a great writer's sense!:-)

    Loved that, it's quite true really!! Love the dots. I stopped putting where I buy things, it got annoying and just like other blogs, but if someone asks I will politely say, but I like finding things on my own, so I don't put where I got something snymore!! Hope you are well doll!! xx

    All TRUE πŸ™‚ I really enjoyed reading this. It's funny that people think that fashion defines who they are. It's what you love, it can't be who you are. Any hoo.

    Haha, nice one! Reminds me of that thing in the Koffee with Karan show.. “what do stars really mean when they say…”
