All bloggers fart.

I used to find it weird shouting about being a student on the blog. I'm not sure why. Maybe because some of the blogs I read are consistently glossy, perfect, luxurious and just a bit 'woohoo yeah look at all these carbs I eat and I'm still a size 4, oh and check out my new chanel bag, it was only $6,000, hashtag bloody bargain!'

Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with 'perfection' blogging or even showing off your new chanel bag, because we know we all would. But it's important to remind ourselves that there's always more to the story. You just happen to be seeing the perfect social media version of that story.

Just because we don't see their zits, blotchy faces after they've sweated their tits off at the gym (sometimes literally) or sweatpant days doesn't mean they don't happen, it just means that those moments aren't necessarily something they want to share with the world and that's okay, because that's a reflection of who they are and what their blog is. Everyone is different.

With the whole student thing for me, I guess I felt like you had to be flashy to enter the blogging world. I have since realised you don't at all. Not one bit, you just have to be yourself and if you're not a knob, people will most likely enjoy reading what you have to say. Sorry to those who think I am a knob. Especially for this posts' title.

Anyway, next time you're staring at a blog filled with endless holiday pictures or an amazing fashion post on pinterest, remember at some point in their lovely chanel filled lives, they've farted. That should do the trick.

And on that note, back to dissertation writing for me, because I am a student with no money and very little social life at the minute. How's that for perfect?

    You just gotta be yourself while blogging because that's the only way to make your blog different from the others. Plus, the blogging community is very welcoming :)
