As bloggers, we might find ourselves doing odd things from time to time. Today, I've compiled a list of some of the oddest things I've done or blogged about doing over the past few years...although I find that it's a little bit hard to draw the line. Are these really crazy things that I've done for blogging? Or are they 'crazy things that I would have done anyways, but since I'm a blogger, I blogged about them'?
Documented my Captain Jack Sparrow notebook collection.
Wrote a post explaining why I wear saris because of readers who were very concerned about cultural appropriation. I know there's plenty of people who think white girls shouldn't wear saris regardless of circumstances, and they are perfectly free to think that.
My uncle gave me this window because he thought it should be made into some kind of cool craft. So I painted it, taped photos to it, and I definitely blogged about it.
Took a photo of my junk drawer. Why???
Shared this photo of the 'authentic mexican' section of the grocery store. Blame this one on Angel.
Took outfit photos inside the grocery store when it was too cold outside. We usually went grocery shopping after church, so this was a very convenient, if odd, system.
Showed off my superb photo editing skills.
Took photos in the cat food aisle of the grocery store. While holding flowers. At least the flowers were for my grandma, so they weren't totally random.
Showed the world what a helicopter perm looks like.
Shared my first diary entry with the world.
Photobombed my sister while she was looking cool on a truck.
Took outfit photos of Angel while he posed like a fashion blogger...inside Papa John's.
Took outfit photos inside Sam's Club.
Are you noticing a trend? It's hard to be a fashion blogger in Michigan, y'all!
Took a picture of three different shoes I loved but didn't buy.
I should have bought these shoes. I still think they're all keepers.
Took this "bear hunting" photo. Don't get me wrong, Angel would definitely still have bought a bear costume if it wasn't for blogging. However, only our families and real life friends would know about it.
Took photos of the really....inadvisable....hairstyles for men in my beauty school's hairstyle books.
Admitted that sometimes our cat (this one is Narcan, Morphine was the other one) was purple because sometimes Angel was left home alone with the cats and my purple hair color for too long.
Proved just how interior designer-unfriendly I am by painting a mural on my wall to distract from the uneven patch job. (protip: if you patch ancient, uneven plaster with a piece of drywall, the results wil be uneven)
Wore kitty ears. Bought for me by Angel, who was inspired by Carolynn's Kitty Ears blog.
Took a picture of a baby in a precarious position. (Placed there by Angel to freak out my little sisters)
Took this photo. This one was definitely for blogging purposes only, it was for a themed link-up.
Made my own version of a meme. Also due to blogging, because otherwise I wouldn't know what a meme is. Also, Angel really did build the picnic table, so this meme is true.
Shared my husband's weird instagram account with the world.
Trust me, it's weird. You don't want to go there, but if you do, it's @angelofrachel
Posted misleading photos.
Froze to death actually attempting to take outfit photos outside.
Dumped the contents of my tiny purse out on the floor for a "what's in my purse" post. If you need change, or even a pressed penny, I'm your gal, apparently.
Took photos of comment cards that were taped to the wall of a public restroom. Don't skip this picture. Read it. You'll be glad you did. It's crazy to take photos in a public restroom but I couldn't let the rest of the world not know that these exist.
Took photos of the husband changing a flat on an open highway in Oklahoma.
What's the craziest thing you've done for blogging? If you're a long-time blog follower, how many of these shenanigans do you remember?
