Bloggy Pet Peeves

Posted on January 24, 2010. Filed under: Discussion Posts | Tags: |

In this discussion post I am going to discuss some of my bloggy “pet peeves.”  I’m sure that there are others out there who have these same “pet peeves” as well. I’m not looking to “trash” anyone about their blog I am just going for an overall these are my pet peeves.  So let’s get started…it ought to be pretty interesting to say the least!

1. Only allowing certain registered users of a certain blogging format comment on a blog….I see this A LOT on Blogger….I’ve even seen blogs where only registered Blogger users can comment.  Am I not good enough to comment on your blog because I happen to blog at wordpress?

2. Music on Blogs….I do most of my blogging on my days off.  Since I work the graveyard shift I’m up when the rest of the “world” is sleeping and sleeping when the rest of the “world” is up.  Because I do most of my blogging while the other people who live at my house are sleeping music on blogs irk’s me cause I’m trying NOT to wake everybody up.

3. Distracting fonts/color of fonts/size of fonts….This is just flat out annoying. It actually makes me NOT want to read the post if there is entirely way too much going on.  My ADD brain can’t handle it!

4. Word verification….FLAT OUT ANNOYING!  Especially if it’s in that nifty cool “you click ‘submit comment’ and SURPRISE you get another window with the word verification in it” format that Blogger has.  In the time it takes to deal with all that word verification “red tape” I could have left SEVERAL comments.

5. Anything that flashes, moves, makes noise or is animated….TALK ABOUT DISTRACTING!  I’m there to read about the books you like to read NOT be distracted by some graphic.

6. Leaving EXPIRED “countdowns” on your blog…..If the book, movie, etc. is now out please take the “countdown” widget down please. It’s irritating.

7. Not making contact information accessible or easy to find….I think this one is pretty self explanatory.

Now I’ve shared with you some of my biggest bloggy pet peeves….Now here’s my question for you….What are some of YOUR bloggy pet peeves?

My pet peeve is with contests. When you have to be a follower in Blogger and they have to click and check to confirm. It is annoying. I follow everyone in my Google Reader. I shouldn’t have to follow you in another way to get entered into a contest it just makes more work for me. If you don’t trust people, don’t hold contest!

Oooo these are good! I’m with you on 1,2,&4.

Am I guilty of 3?

About #1 – my blog has 2 settings, one which allows anonymous commenters and one that doesn’t. To minimize incidents of trolls and spammers, I am forced to use the setting which doesn’t allow anonymous commenters, only registered users. I guess this reasoning applies to #4 as well. Guilty!
