Well...that's one way to get readers. But really, is that what you want to read about? A made up story full of blood and guts? I doubt it.
When I think of the blogs I like to read the most, it is their authenticity, their rawness, and their humor that draw me in.
But let me be honest about something else. Most of the blogs I read are written by girls (women really, but that makes them sound old in my mind) who look like they just took a little break from a photo shoot and whipped up a quick blog post complete with professional photos they took while surfing (and sewing a hand made dress) in a breathtaking hidden beach location while traveling with their model-like husbands.

No one's going to find me doing a photo shoot and I certainly don't know how to take professional pictures (but I definitely appreciate that Instagram makes it look like I do). I don't know how to surf...shoot, I don't even want people to see me in a bathing suit. I'm not crafty and I will never be a "do-it-yourself-er". And when it comes to my husband, well, even though I think he's just the cutest thing, Ralph Lauren hasn't come calling for him to hit the runways.

And come on, who wouldn't want that puppy and that cute little husband?
