How Being A Blogger Is Like Being In A Sorority

Let me start by saying I was in a sorority in college.  Phi Sigma Sigma for life!  I loved every minute of it and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.  Since starting Brass Honey I've realized that in a lot of ways being a part of the blogging community is kinda like being back in a sorority.

Here's how...

We're here to make friends!

We get stuff for free.  In college it was free drinks.  We're older and wiser now though so we've upped the aunty and now it's clothes, jewelry and handbags. 

We seek community.

We go to mixers to meet new people, aka linkups.

We drink, a lot.  

We're dramatic.  Everything is a shit storm and I mean everything.

We seek attention.  Why else would we be doing this.

We have a 140 friends, some of which we pay for (hello sponsorships).

We have cliques. Don't act like you don't see the same 10 people together doing a million giveaways every month.

We dress to impress and we dress alike. I've gone to a few events and people have actually said "you're a blogger aren't you? I can tell by the way your dressed." Exactly how many bloggers did you see wearing Rockstuds or carrying the Beau Bag in 2013, countless right?

It's been a long time since college and I can't tell you how nice it is to have a sense of community again.  GO BLOGGERS!  I think we need letters don't you?

    1. I browse quite a few fashion blogs and during fashion week everyone had on a pair of these babies, http://m.nordstrom.com/s/3139048/. They're gorg, but ridiculously $$$. As for accepting anyone, I'm with you. Bloggers and Sororities aren't 100% the same but I definitely see similarities. Good and bad :)

  2. Aww...I love this. I totally agree. Blogging is very similar to sororities for so many of those reasons. Once you are out of college, it's hard to find friends and I love the people I have met through blogging. But the one good thing about blogging vs sororities...you can block, unfollow or ignore people that bug you! Yay for that! :)

  7. Well I never thought about it this way but you're right! I was never part of a sorority but I love how we make friends and are almost "sisters" as a community.
