Hey everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!
I am pretty sure most of you will be like when was the first part of this done? And you’ll go and scroll down on my website. I’ll save you the trouble- here’s where it is, and it was published back in the December of 2020. I know that’s so looong ago! But well, since then I’ve grown as a blogger, and my pet peeves and non-pet peeves have increased, not by much, they definitely have. And here’s part two of the discussion! Let’s get into it!
Note: I haven’t mentioned the things I did in the old post, so the points in these post are like relatively newer, and also less than there are in that post.
Things that irritate me has a blogger
- When people don’t credit me when they use my ideas.
Okay, so, like, there’s no non-braggy way to put this- I come up with good ideas occasionally. And other people definitely might want to do it, as I, too, use other people’s ideas when they’re amazing. But when I do it, I credit them. I even credit YouTubers who’ll probably never even see my post! However these other people, whose blog I actually follow, they use my idea, say they came up with it by themselves, after the commented on my blog saying great idea/post or whatever.
And you know what, they may have even come up with it themselves, but at least say in the comments of my post that you were thinking of doing something similar, because I’ll obviously feel you were just copying my idea, especially when their normal content isn’t all that creative. I mean, Nehal did a post on Ways her blogging self differs from her IRL one, and I was like hey, I’ve always wanted to do this post as well!
This happens with not just me, but with so many other people! Like I’ve legit seen people copy pasting half their posts from other people’s blogs, using the same idea and post title, while not mentioning their posts at all! And it just makes me mad, because I know the effort that goes into making a blog post, and you’re like simply copying the post/idea without putting in your own effort? That’s literally so wrong.
Okay, yes, I’ll stop ranting about this now.
When people use unnecessarily many strikethroughs. I love the occasional strikethrough. I use them often myself. But some people have half their posts like filled with strikethroughs? Like I wanna read your post, and excessive strikethroughs make it extremely difficult!
I hope you enjoyed the demonstration 🙂

Okay, look, when people are being sarcastic and use random capitalization, I am all for it. But it makes no sense half the places and then they think to themselves, oh I am so cool! There’s just some myth surrounding random capitalization and strikethroughs- apparently they are ‘cool’? I mean, I’ve always stuck to good ol’ blogging with much fanciness and it’s worked out for me.
Things that motivate/make me happy as a blogger
- When people praise me for exactly what I am trying to be in that particular post
Okay, so lately everyone knows I am being more… ‘real’ in my posts, and I’ve been getting comments like ‘I love how honest you’re being’ and stuff, and it is just so heartwarming.
On a related note,
- When I go through my old posts and read awesome comments
Honestly, I reread my old posts and their comments whenever I am having a bad day. You might consider it narcissistic, but for me it’s kinda like how a musician always listens to their music. Like, obviously I write what I love, and it’s also kinda like reading an old journal, except its about books, mostly. And what’s more in this journal, there are beautiful comments by other people as well!
- When people are like: ‘We will support you, no matter what.’
I don’t think I need to elaborate.
And that’s all I have for you today! I hope you enjoyed this post, it’s significantly shorter than Part I, but I think it’s good enough! Let me know your pet peeves and non-pet peeves in the comments below!
