It's because I don't take amazing photos of, like, doorknobs. And food. And my homemade throw pillow, or vintage frame that I had to strip, restain and modpodge.
Also, because I don't really know what modpodge is.
Also, I don't wear superamazingmagazine outfits. (That I usually think look ridiculous in realeveryday life, to be honest.)
I take pictures of my kids. And sometimes trees. They are merely marginally-better-than-average photos.
I cook. But pictures of the food do not look delicious.
I occasionally craft. But pictures of said crafts look really dumb.
I wear marginally-better-than-average clothes. I never take pictures of them.
So - it all comes down to photos, basically.
Now please understand - I am not even remotely bitter about my non-famous status. I am one of the thousands of people who Follow these photographic (and photogenic) ladies who make dented salt shakers look amazing on film.
It is merely amusing to me that every time I see a link to a blogger whose "follower" gadget is in the thousands, it's never because of how well they write. It's because of the pictures. (I can think of two exceptions - one is super snarky and one is super sweet AND snarky.)
Yes - a lot of these picture-taking-wonders CAN write as well. But would they be well-known based on words alone? I read so many blogs that I feel SHOULD be famous - and they're not. Probably because there aren't any pictures of dented salt shakers or 18th century doorknobs.
Oh, and I'm pretty sure the fact that I don't have a three column layout is working against me, too.
