With Harry and Megan’s wedding just a few weeks ago, Britain (and the rest of the world!) has gone mad for our Royal Family! But did you know that, if you’re a blogger, it’s pretty much the same thing as being one of the royals!*
*this statement may not be 100% accurate
7 ways blogging is like being in the royal family
You share your personal moments with the entire world
I loved watching Harry and Megan interacting on their wedding day, but I couldn’t help feeling that I was snooping on something that should have been a private moment for close friends and family.
As bloggers, we also live-stream a lot of our special family moments… and then we come home and blog about them too. There is nothing off-limits – every wedding, argument, triumph and challenge is blog fodder!
The world thinks you sit around all day but you actually work really hard
Bloggers and royals both have a bad wrap for getting everything handed to them on a plate!
You get stuff for free but you can’t pick what you want
The royal family get a lot of freebies… and so do bloggers. But beggars can’t be choosers – you just get what you’re given and what the “higher powers” want you to share the world.
What if Megan Markle always dreamed of a beach wedding? Or what if Harry wanted to sing to his bride on their big day?
You have to find a cause and be passionate about it
You have a voice and people listen to what you say (even if they only do it to disagree with you) so you can really bring about change in the world. There are also lots of people who look at you for inspiration and encouragement and you find that you’re the head of a movement.
It’s a family affair
From granny to baby, great aunty Susan down to the dog – it’s a family business, and everyone has a role to play. There are the stars who are sure to draw a crowd and there are the ones who prefer to be out of the lime light but just being related makes you part of the gig.
You have friends all over the world
Whatever country is mentioned, you can name someone who lives there. Yes they’re in a different time zone, and yes they speak a different language, but they’re still your friends, even if you don’t see them
ever as often as you’d like.
Your kids are the real stars
Despite the hard work of the parents, it’s the kids that steal the show! They’re the ones that everyone is really interested in (!) and one cute photo can paper over any cracks or less-than-perfect performances. Phew!
