As a born again influential part-time lifestyle blogger, I felt it my duty to share a typical Saturday in my life with my huge band of followers AKA My Tribe. This blog post was inspired by A Blissful Day in the Life of a Blogger.
Wake up. Check the clock. The birds are singing. Don’t they know it’s the weekend and my chance to sleep till 9am? Put pillow over my head and go back to sleep.

Wake up again. The birds have increased their volume and light is creeping under the edge of the blind. It’s supposed to be a blackout blind.
That’s it. Give up trying to sleep and crawl out of bed.
Try to find laptop. Eventually find it on floor under a pile of yesterday’s clothes. Return to bed, arrange the pillows and start blogging.
Realise it’s freezing cold.
Can’t get comfortable on the stupid pillows. There’s a crick in my neck and my hands are too numb with cold to type. Will have to get up to switch the heating on.
Stagger blearily downstairs and put the heating on. Let the dogs out.
Make a cup of tea and shake some Rice Krispies into a bowl. Pour on milk and plenty of sugar for energy.
Dogs come back in with wet muddy paws and track dirty paw prints all over the kitchen floor.
Lay on the settee and work on some blog posts.
A bit bored to be honest so I turn on the TV and watch a programme about someone looking at a nice house in Florida. Text a few friends to see if they want to meet for lunch.
Dogs want to go for a walk. Switch off the TV. Grab a coat. It’s pouring with rain and there is a bitter east wind blowing. Pull up my hood. Trudge around the block. A trickle of ice cold rain runs down the back of my neck. Draw the conclusion that my hood isn’t waterproof.
Get in, remove the sodden coat and look at the label. ‘Showerproof’. About as useful as the blackout blind. Try to dry the dogs but too late; they have shaken muddy water all over the chairs.
None of my friends have replied to my texts. Look in the kitchen cupboards. Can’t be bothered really. Find two strawberry poptarts which I bought for my nephew. Stick them in the toaster.
Look at the clock. Bit bored again.
Check my income from my Zazzle shops. This is my bestselling card by far:
(It only seems popular with UK buyers so if you’re not in the UK probably don’t bother clicking on the link. Don’t even go there!)
Check my affiliate sales. Quite a few clicks but no conversions since I last checked yesterday.
Check my adwords earnings. $400
No, hang on, it says $4.
Eat a doughnut.
It’s still raining so ignore the dogs imploring looks, begging for another walk. Let them out in the garden. When they return I open a can of food for them.
Prepare my supper too. Consider whipping up something tasty, nutritious and delicious! Settle on baked beans on toast followed by a battered Cornetto which I find stuck to the ice at the bottom of the freezer.
My friend picks me up and we go to the local pub for a few gin and tonics. We moan about the office and I tell her that I shall probably be able to chuck it in very soon and live on the earnings from my blog.
Hopefully, someone will buy me a nice Congratulations on Escape Leaving Card.
Get home. Log on and check my blogging stats for the day. No likes. Probably a malfunction at the webhost’s end.
Chuck the laptop on the bedroom floor, collapse into bed and drift off to sleep.
It’s truly great living a glossy blogging lifestyle!
