Top Ten Blogger Pet Peeves

I don’t think I have been in the blogger world long enough, or deep enough that I have too many pet peeves, but I will try to get to ten.

  1. Blogs that spend more time pimping themselves out to get followers than actually making contact and building relationships with their current readership.  I understand that those blogs trying to earn money from their blogs need those numbers, but personally I prefer to follow blogs that also take care of their current followers.
  2. Blog blitzes.  When I open my bloglovin’ and see that more than a dozen of the blogs I follow all have the same content on a specific day, or even within a couple of days.  I figure they are all going to be the same stuff over and over so I don’t bother with them.  The ones I have read are all pushy and no personal touches to them at all.
  3. Drama.  I don’t like anything that might make you feel like you’re stuck in the middle and may result in my terminating my subscription to both parties.  I don’t have time for that shit, I want to read about books, not about all that he said / she said bull shit.  Isn’t that in a song?
  4. Blogs that can’t seem to come up with their own content and stoop to the low of the low with plagiarism.
  5. Busy looking blogs.  When there is so much going on, music popping up, flash and gifs all going on at once totally distracts me and the reason I came to the blog in the first place.  Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy some of the gifs, not just a whole post of them.

I can’t think of anymore and I am already late, late, late with this post so I will leave it there.  I am sure there are others, but these are my top ones.  What would be a peeve of yours about some blogs?  Especially leave a comment if it is something about mine! 😉
