Hola comrades! I am back with another discussion post (and back out of my hiatus-I will still be posting less than I used to, though), after I realized that this was a post that was building up in my mind for quite some time and that it was about time that I put it on paper (in this case on my blog). So here I am, to present to you a post about things that I enjoy as a blogger and things that irritate me as a blogger. It isn’t a bookish post though.
Also, no one’s to take any offence at whatever I say as those are just my views and I have nothing against any of you, if you do any of these things.
Warning: Harsh words ahead
Without further ado, let’s begin!
Things that irritate me as a blogger
- When people spell my name incorrectly
I HATE WHEN THIS HAPPENS! And it isn’t even as though I have a complex name with hundred letters. My name isn’t the IUPAC name of Titin- it is a simple six letter name- R-I-D-D-H-I. Why can’t people get that straight?
- When people leave links of their blogs in the posts that they comment.
I don’t know why people do this. To publicize their blogs, I get it, but if I am interested, I will check your blog out myself. I don’t need you to leave a link behind! It is just so irritating when people do this!!!
- When people write an email to me, less to appreciate my content, but more to get their blogs a new follower/ get their blog promoted by me.
So, this one time, a blogger wrote to me saying that we could publicize each other’s blogs and stuff. I was so irritated😡😡😡. The blogger wasn’t all that active on WordPress and they expected me to follow their blog and stuff just because I liked one of their posts. I was annoyed!!
- When people follow my blog but aren’t all that active and don’t respond to my content.
So, there are some really annoying people who follow my blog, but don’t respond to my content. I get that they might be busy and I don’t expect you to like all of my posts, but such people don’t like any of my posts! If you check the likes of my posts, the number of posts they have liked is zero! Zilch! Nada!!
- When people don’t use capital letters and punctuations in their posts (Basically have bad usage of grammar).
I don’t know why, but this irks me a lot in blog posts. I am not all that concerned about this in texts or comments, but this irks me in blogging, whether it be a comment or a post. I am like: uuugggggggggghhhhhhhh, you just have to press one extra button, can’t you do that?!?!?!!! I also hate it when people have disorganized posts. Like no separator, nothing where you can figure out what is where. I know some of you might feel this about my Tag Thursday posts, but hey, I use a separator and bolden the font where new stuff begins!
I am not the best in case of grammar but I try!
- When you comment on people’s posts and they don’t reply.
This is one thing that irritates me to a limitless extent. I mean how can you expect me to enjoy your content if you don’t reply to my comments!
Sorry, if that was a bit extreme, but I felt like I needed to get my feelings out there. I meant no offence to anyone.
Things I like as a blogger
- When you get appreciated for your content.
I love it when people like my post. I like it even more when people comment on my posts (especially long ones! Those are the best!! It shows that the commenter did not skim read my post). And I love it when people send me an email, appreciating my work.
- When you get tagged/nominated for something
I love it when people tag me for tags- especially fun ones. And when I get nominated for an award…. oh, that feeling! That pure joy, the elation, the bliss! It is unforgettable!
- When you get a new follower
I still feel the same thrill when I gain a new follower as I did the first time I did. It tells me that I am doing good work and that I should keep going the way I am.
- When you reach new milestones
I don’t know about you, but I loved it when I reach round figures such as 100, 200 followers. I also reached 10,000 views recently and I was so freaking happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- When you get to talk and rant about books whenever you want to, and no one judges you
This is my absolute favourite thing about blogging. I needn’t say anything more.
- When people remember your name even when your blog name does not include it/ when people identify you with your blog
I don’t know why, but it just makes me happy😄😄.
I know, it wasn’t exactly a bookish discussion but I enjoyed doing it all the same! Thanks for reading!
