9 Types of Bloggers

Image result for many people

There are so many types of bloggers out there. It would take me forever if I was gonna analyze in detail of each and every type, so let’s just stick with the basics, cool?

Before we begin, I just wanna tell you something. It doesn’t matter which one you are. In fact, you might be none of the below!! But that’s fine. Each and every blogger has their own unique style.

I’ve categorised the types of bloggers into 3 categories. Then in each of those categories, I have listed 3 kinds of bloggers for that category. So 3+3=9!

Let’s start! *rubs hands together excitedly*

//HEADS-UP//

This post isn’t meant to downgrade anyone, or to offend anyone. Most of the things said here are exaggerated anyway. If you think you see yourself portrayed here in a bad way, it was purely coincidental. I don’t mean to target anyone. I don’t have anyone in particular in mind when I write these.

1. Planning

How bloggers plan their posts.

The Extravagant Planner

This blogger will grab his/her notebook and pen, and begin scribbling out ideas for a new post. After many hours of deliberating and debating, they will choose one topic, promising the others that they will make a post about them *someday.*

Then they get to work on the details- the font, photos, layout, order, words they will use, etc. This takes about 2-3 hours. And then they will make the featured image. That takes another 2 hours. Finally, they will start writing…………… their first draft. Then their second. And finally, their final draft. This may take 2-3 days, depending on the complexity of the post and this thing called life that gets in the way.

In the end, they will have this beautifully written post which took a week to prepare, but only requires 5-7 minutes of reading time.

The comments on the post are super worth it though.

The Semi-Planner

This blogger will roughly plan out their next post. They will jot down a few notes for reference, and then just start writing. Every once in a while, they will go back and check their notes, but only half following them.

Most of the time, they are just writing off the top of their heads.

The approximate time to do all this is about 1 day or more, since this blogger also likes to make at least 2 drafts before publishing.

The No-Planner

This blogger is totally different from the rest when it comes to planning. He/she will not plan at all, but just plonk themselves at the computer, and start typing away. Every once in a while, they will pause, think, and then trash the whole thing and start again. The consequences of not planning.

But maybe it’s cause they have no time to plan. School, life, family, friends, etc. tends to get in the way.

That’s totally fine though, nobody really knows how much work went into the post (unless the blogger says so)

2. Words/Language

No, this section isn’t about what language you wrote your post in. Not about French, German, Chinese, multi-lingo, whatever.

The Non-Capitaliser

This person doesn’t like to use capitalisation. Not even for names. Sometimes, not even for the name of Jesus. Why? I have no idea. The point is, sometimes grammar freaks don’t like to follow their blog cause they don’t capitalise at all. even after a full stop. like what i just did there.

But that’s the blogger’s choice. It’s their blog, and they can make it look how they want it to look, capital or no capital.

The Rough Language User

This blogger occasionally (or not) likes to use words like “damn” and “omg” or maybe even the f word in their posts. Again, it’s their blog and technically they can write what they want on their blog.

But normally this will not really gain them followers, because a lot of bloggers I know don’t like to read posts with swear words in them.

Then there’s also the blogger who is rough in their words. Not necessarily using swear words, but probably downgrading others.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen one, but if I do, I’ll most likely (about 99.999999999999%) not follow them at all.

The Grammar Freak

Oh this blogger is the kind who must read and re-read his/her post several times to make sure it’s completely grammatical error-free. It’s a good thing, but sometimes I suppose they care too much and their overly-good grammar just makes me confused???

Maybe they spend too much time on grammar and forget about everything else.

That isn’t a good thing because we’re looking for good quality content too.

3. Blogging

This final section is all about the actual part of blogging; when you actually start typing out your posts instead of just reading other bloggers’ posts and checking out the comment sections before commenting so you don’t accidentally comment the same thing as someone else XD (dare: say that whole sentence in one breath. Don’t die!!)

The Discipline

This blogger spends an equal amount of time on both reading others’ posts and working on their own posts. They have a huge amount of self-control, or maybe time is just against them and they have to use it to their best advantage.

 

 

The Procrastinator

Come on, you saw this coming, didn’t ya?? This person will come into WP and immediately head over to the Reader first. They will check their comments there, so that the drafts sitting in the Drafts tab will not be staring at them and making them guilty of not publishing them already.

Then after that, they will read their followed blogs’ post because hey, other people’s posts are always better right?

Finally, if they have time to spare, they will choose one draft to continue working on (there’s always a draft waiting) and probably even publish it!

The Inconsistent One

Image result for schedule

The blogger we can all relate to. Some days, they just don’t feel like blogging. So they go to YouTube and watch some videos or scroll through Pinterest aimlessly.

And then some days, their whole day is filled to them brim with activities. Thus, 0 time for blogging.

Finally, some days the WiFi is against them and they can’t blog even if they wanted to and they are forced to do some handiwork or more homework.

After not blogging for a few days (or weeks or even months) this blogger will suddenly pop back into the atmosphere and say something like “Hellooooo my little marshmallows, I’m back! Oh myyyy it’s been ages since I’ve last posted a post and I’m so glad you guys are still following me. So sorry for not announcing my unplanned hiatus, school got in the way, I was so emotionally drained, I had no ideas at all……” and etc. etc. etc. You probably already know the drill if you’ve been around the blogosphere long enough.

However, sometimes it’s just really impossible to blog. So my advice is: announce a little break if you know you aren’t going to be able to blog for _____________. (insert amount of days/weeks/months/years) Trust me, your followers will be slightly mad at you if you don’t turn up for a few days without any logical explanation.

It’s especially tough for bloggers with a fixed schedule to simply leave the blogosphere without explaining things, so especially bloggers with schedules, TAKE MY ADVICE!


Well, that was long.

I hope you enjoyed that, and you aren’t angry about it. Remember my heads up. If you missed it up there (though I couldn’t imagine how) scroll back up until you see the gigantic heads up.

FUN FACT: If I hadn’t accidentally clicked the align left button when trying to align my first picture, I wouldn’t have discovered this new formatting. Hope it looks nice! Just trying it out. (all images & gifs from Google)

From the list up there, I think I’m a combination of No-Planner and The Discipline 😛

Which type of blogger(s) are you?

  1. So I’m the No Planner, Grammar Freak and Procrastinator 😂😂 It’s not that I don’t plan things- I just like to write everything on my mind down. Like I have a few jots if it’s a long post and I need to address a few things but other than that, I just go with the flow and use templates from my previous posts. 😂 Okay so I say omg and ughdhdyisjdv quite often in my posts but that’s only when I need to emphasize something (aka everything 😂) I’m not a total grammar freak (I am irl though) but I also don’t use too much slang or swear words. Procrastinator is so me 😭😭 I’m trying to work on it but some days I’m just like nope no motivation. 😂 Love this post!!
