8 Things I loath and Love About Blogs


 

——I LOATHE—–

 

1.   Haters

Haters are individuals with too much time on their hands.

They get an electrical charge out of posting nasty comments (anonymously, of course)  on several blog posts.  

These bitches love to inform you (anonymously, of course) that you are dull, utilize too much profanity, and that your grammar is appallingly inexcusable.

Haters are bullies, whom unfortunately, cannot even look at themselves in the mirror.

2.   Queens

Queen-Bitch

These chicks are bloggesses who expect you to read their blogs, but will NEVER acknowledge the ground you walk on.

They would snub you on the street & tell you your hair was ugly!

They are narcissistic and write excessively about how astonishing they are.

Queens write their blog posts wearing diamond studded fake tiaras.

Because nothing about them is real….Not even their Boobies.

3.   Travelers

Travelers are seldom at home.

When readers click onto their blogs, typically they are re-directed to another area where they’re guest posting.

Click here.     Click there. 

I’m sorry, but when you’re not home, I usually don’t have time to visit you at the neighbor’s house.   

Even if you’re offering chocolate.

4.    Skimmer 

Skimmers skim.

The skimmer will skip and scan thru a blog quickly.

And then reply in the wrong context.

For example, recently I read a post about a pet dog that had died.  Utterly sad.  I mean, damn heartbreaking. 

The skimmer had LOL within her comment.  WTF?

Read the entire blog-post, idiot!

—– I  LOVE—–

5.     Authenticity

 

Raw.    Real.   Gutsy.

The authenticity bloggers “Give Good Voice.”

These bloggers present the readers with all of their dirty laundry without apology.

They even leave the shit stains inside the undies.

6.     Generosity

These writers  melt my heart;  make me looooove them.

They comment on your comments, reply to your blogs, and even tweet your blog posts.

I want to be like them when I grow up!

You all know who you are.  Don’t you?

7.    Crazies

I adore crazy, eccentric writers.

The Bikers.  The Goths.  The Heavy Metals. The Lost.  The Unusual.

Everything they write flows from the core & essence of who they are.

8.    Content

 [new+i+love+your+blog.JPG] 

 Without kick ass delicious content…

You Have Nothing.

No blog at all.

Kiss your ass goodbye.

The ultimate blogger offers amazing content that gives the readers something to chew on, think about, ponder, laugh over, love, & powerful words to awaken the soul.

—You, my dears,  inspire me.

~~~~Dear, Reader,  What are some of your loves and loathes about blogs & blogging?

    Kim, I love this post! I saw the title on my Bloglovin’ and headed over here pronto! May I say I am in agreement with you one hundred percent! I chuckled like crazy with the haters! bwhahaha! The skimmers should be ashamed of themselves. Poor dog. LOL? WTF, indeed! Seriously, when is the LOL going to be out of style? I’m so over it. I mean, how else do you laugh, if not out loud? For me, the worst thing is those bloggers that have maybe one or two comments and still they are not taking the time to acknowledge their readers. Really? Two comments and you can’t reply? Also, these big bloggers who don’t think they have to do at the very least, a courtesy visit to a blog of someone who’s taken the time to comment. Are you kidding me? I don’t care how good you are! I love the generous, the crazies and the authentic! Not being mainstream, or following a cookie cutter mold, that’s what gets me every time.

    I love blogging but always feel like there is something lacking when I blog. My blog is a food blog but I have a hard time making it interesting. To some people it just comes natural but it doesn’t just “flow” with me. Plus, there are things I would like to blog about besides just food that would be interesting but then I have the “husband” who has friends that read my blog and he would be embarrassed by some of the things I would love to blog about!!!!! I wish I could write more like you to be honest. But I do LOVE to blog! – and read other blogs…it is so addicting. I literally could just do this for hours! Oh, and I don’t like food blogs where people actually ask for donations for the food they buy so they can post what their followers would like. Unreal. Don’t like that at all. If you can’t afford it then don’t make it. After all you are the one eating it, not your followers. Just my opinion…..

    Kim, this is a fantastic post. I think the only other thing that drives me a little crazy is the “long winded” bloggers. I have quite a few blogs I read, and if you go on with so much detail (We drove from St. Louis to Kansas and there was so much traffic. We stopped and ate at a local Applebees and I had a plate of nachos and hubby had a greek salad. We were meeting our friends at the No Tell Motel and planning to visit the lilac farm the next day. Our friends Jeffrey and Mildred are such fun. We used to play golf with them once a week before they moved to Kansas.) Okay, I don’t care. I don’t want to know. I’m running out of patience. Please post this only if you start with “We were meeting our friends Jeffrey and Mildred at the No Tell Motel and we are going to have an orgy. I brought the nipple clamps and hubby brought the vibrators.”. Then I might keep reading. But then I know I’m weird. Just shorten up the darn stuff and leave out the Applebee’s lunch, okay?

    Another thing is that it is better to me if people DO NOT post every day. I like to look forward to the next post. And maybe check back a couple of times.

    Even worse, folks that just take a break for a month between posts. Uh, wait a moment. Where’d they go???

    Well, you are very transparent today, my dear. Not that you aren’t always but the blogging rant, I get it. I really don’t get that anyone wouldn’t be authentic in their blog. I mean, why not? Maybe it’s that bottle of Fake Juice that’s been going around, I don’t know.

    I recently had a comment on my blog of a link back to the commenter’s blog, and that was it. USER!

I always look forward to hearing what you have to say, and I especially enjoy the photos you post with your blog. Love it.

    I get tired of blogs about blogging. Not this one-seriously-not this post. But some of them seem like constant instructions on what to do or what not to. It’s so annoying. Nobody knows everything about blogging and social media and parenting and life. Can’t we just write when and what we feel like writing and enjoy it?

    LOL! In the write- I mean RIGHT context! I adore you Kim and I want to be you when I (don’t) grow up. You simply rock. Ok- here goes:

    LOVES:

    *The friends and people I have met thru blogging. I mean the “real” people who let you into their souls with their writing and speak from their heart. It allows you to be the best of friends without all the superficial and logistical things that get in the way. I especially love the ones who send me goodies like kitty cat ornaments, baked goods and books.My Favorite Things!

    *Bloggers who take time to post a relevant picture. Sometimes, that it is a pain to do- but it adds a lot to the blog!

    LOATHES:
    *The blogger who uses overtly, rrr-r-really bad grammar. I feel used because it is as if since they didn’t take time to do that- it is a waste of my time to spend reading. DISCLAIMER: This does not mean i never have type-o’s in my blogs or replies! LOL

    *Bloggers who seem to have no point to their blog. I am like Whattttt???

    *People who blog for purposes of self promoting hidden within a blog. Like an infomercial disguised as a soap opera… or something like that.

    Hilarious. I laughed at the “skimmer” title because I sort of did that … once. It was Valentines Day and said something in a comment on a random blog hop blog about how I hope this woman enjoys Valentines Day and I linked to one of my posts about husbands. Well, I woke up to the meanest email I’ve ever had in my inbox because apparently she was single… and bitter… and psycho. I apologized in a follow up email but never heard back. Shocking. Tip of the day? Don’t be a skimmer.

    This is one kickass post, Kim. I have a set of blogs I will visit each time I get an alert about a new post (obviously I subscribe to them. And even if they gimme the whole works in the email, I’d still go over and comment.

    Inappropriate comments are the worst. You wonder what the heck. And then find that these commenters (is that a word?) will also add three links to the post 😀 so you know where they’re coming from. Creeps. I know a few very “well-known popular” bloggers who actually message me on chat to retweet/comment/vote – but never ever visit my blog :-D. They’re full of **it you know?

    Then there are those that will never reply to/acknowledge comments. WTF? Like they’re entitled to all the love in the world. Like my friend’s dad would always tell us “In life, it is a matter of give and take. You give, I take”

    Oh well, it takes all sorts to make this world.

    And I gotta tell you, am so grateful there are bloggers like you to connect with.

    Again, thanks for a super post! But then, you always rock 😉

    I love that you keep us in line. I love that you love the crazies. I don’t have much time to read as many blogs as I would like or know I should read, and I know I should because very soon I am going to be famous and discovered by Oprah and have people to read for me, but until then I will try and read and leave comments, relevant or nor. Also, how did you get a picture of my bra and knickers to post on your blog. To answer your question about loves and hates. Not so much either, more of an annoyance. When I give up some of my time to read every word, comma, etc., take time to leave a comment on a blog, and not to hear back. I assume there are some blog rules I don’t know about. As always, Kim, thank you for keeping us in line, and floating on by. I remember you said you subscribe to forty blogs. You are a gem.

I even put up on my contact page I wasn’t going to guest post for awhile but people still ask me. It’s really stressing me out lately. Hopefully I can get it to tone down soon.

    I love the honestly of this post.
    I also don’t like when people leave comments and just ask me to come visit their blog. On the same hand when I first started blogging, I have to confess I was a poor commenter. I didn’t know what to do and how to leave good comments. I am better than I used to be, but still a work in progress.
    And although I know at the end of the day it is not about leaving comments to get comments, but if I have commented good thoughtful comments on a blog many, many times….it would be nice if the person at least acknowledged me by visiting my blog (I’d even take a just stopping by comment from them).

    Great post.

    Check out my giveaway. I’m your newest follower. Could you follow me back?

    That shit? Doesn’t fly with me. Leave a sincere comment or don’t leave one at all. I LOVE that you blogged about this. Did you know that bloggy drama exists? I’m dealing with a crazy person who likes to blog about me (in a bad way) without saying my name. We USED to be friends in bloggyworld until I found out she’s crazy! So that’s another pet peeve. Don’t be crazy and blog untrue things about people just to get a sympathy comment. UGH! Who knew blogging could take me back to highschool?

    I love the TRAVELERS bit. I hardly EVER comment on a visitors post unless I know both of them. It gets annoying (but I’ve done it before).

    So many times I’m lured into a blog because of one really great post and then the posts slowly just start to bore me. Or they just can’t keep up with the coolness that brought us all there in the first place. Sometimes the humor is just too much or the sadness just takes over. I need a balance. I understand that we aren’t always going to read the truth. My friend Marc tells me, “Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story.” I agree with that. Sometimes, though, I just think, “No flipping way.” I don’t want to read a blog that is supposed to be reality but is obviously bullshit, you know?

    The end.

    OK….confession here. I don’t really get the commenting on comments thing. It seems redundant to me. Plus, with only a few exceptions (you being one of them) I don’t have time to visit a blog posting twice just to see what someone said about my comment. Hell, as you can tell I get weeks and weeks behind on reading the blogs I really want to read. If I want to continue a conversation I will email the blogger. What I do is I visit and comment on the blogs of my regular readers. I may be missing the whole blog bus here but I just don’t get it.

    I don’t like whiners – I mean real ones, not those who inject humor while whining or only whine once in awhile). All of us have had the right to whine but to make every post a whine fest? Blech. I don’t need to start my day with that. Too, too depressing.

    I REALLY don’t like those who TMI too much. They tell things about family members that were best left unsaid. I would hate my mother if she’d blogged about all my bad points or mistakes. And Alpha Hubby would have something to say if I exposed anything too personal (like the big purple buise on his cute little pattotie. When I took a pix of it he said, “you’re not putting this online are you?” As if…).

    Lastly, I don’t like people who want to dictate how or what others should post. Like if someone only writes about good things, saying that this person’s blog isn’t keeping it real. HEY, it is MY blog. Hands off. You keep your idea of reality to your own blog and let’s agree not to read one another’s blog, ‘kay???

It makes it hard to find the damn posts! Skimmers also annoy me. Personally, I don’t try to read blogs unless I have time to sit and actually read what was written. Sometimes this means I don’t get to comment as much as I would like, but at least I read the whole thing.

    In conclusion, love the post and love your blog!

    Alright. Here I sit in Starbucks, I mean where else would I be at this time of day?, (can you even put a question mark, a comma and parenthesis all next to each other like that? Who the hell cares. you get my point,) anyway I’m having a hard time figuring out where I fall. My boobs are mine, mainly because I paid for them, I don’t talk about how great I am, most of the time anyway. But I guess the title of my blog kinds implies that I think I’m great. I can’t always read or comment since I was a total idiot and took Early American History AND Algebra this semester…who in the hell does that? But then again I do tell you everything about my sordid life, if not in my main blog, it’s the blog the kids don’t know about. 😉 (Do you have that one?) AND I LOVE you! So I think that makes me great in and of itself! Oh yeah, you asked a question didn’t you?

    I LOVE reality and the ins and outs of peoples lives, I guess what I mean is that I love making relationships, I love the networking, I love the friendships that form. I HATE the “I’m following you please follow me back” people. Oh and CAPTCHA…well, it just sucks ass. I also cannot stand the blogs that are obviously lies because someone feels so badly about their self image they have to make shit up about how great they are….easy to see through it. And I really don’t like the obvious “I only commented on your blog because you commented one mine.” PUKE!

    And I LOVE blogs that I can subscribe to by email, like yours, so when I’m too overwhelmed by the chaos in my life I get a reminder that someone really great is out there. I do believe this is the longest comment I’ve ever left. Sorry about that. I kind of hate that about me, I get on something and I just keep going. Oh, and thank you by the way for the heart felt comment you left on my last post about Isaiah. I know I’ve posted it, or something similar to it, every July 19 and ever October 11 since I’ve been blogging. I feel strongly that people should know what we didn’t and it cost us my grandson’s life. Thank you for your sensitivity and warmth.

    Ok there’s my book. Now I guess I need to get back to reading the shit my Hist. Prof assigned on the Puritans and the Shawnee Indian tribe….I mean how do those even fit together? Blah.

    I love you,

    What an awesome post! I loved reading this. I’m fairly new to blogging, but the things you loathe are right on the mark. I am always afraid of getting one of those nasty comments! I don’t mind if someone corrects my grammar, though. I know I have to fight not to point out other people’s mistakes, but I like when people point out my errors. I’d rather fix things that slip through the cracks of my (non)editing process. And I’d like to think I’m an authentic blogger. I’m not afraid to write about stupid crap I’ve done, or how I used to be a drug addict, or how I have a naked lady tattoo on my arm that every single person I know but me hates (and I don’t care). But yeah, this post was awesome and made me laugh.

    love the authenticity too – and your BRA photo! such a great match – saying it all…
    Actually, as a matter of fact, I write more than I read, but I really like the fact that online you can connect with the people who share my own interests and values in life. It makes my life so much easier – and fuller to be able to experience some stimulating, interesting input!

    And OMG – “They even leave the shit stains inside the undies.” – that really is L-O-effing-L!

    You forgot to mention spammers. Spammers suck BIG time. (I actually have the ability to delete comment on skirt blogs – everyone’s not just my own- and if I see a spam comment – you know the kind with just links to their product that has nothing to do with the blog- I’ll delete that sucker right away.)
