Hello, world! I hope you had a wonderful Fourth Of July! 🎉
I’ve been blogging for almost a year, (August 10th, to be exact) and I’ve seen many types of bloggers/blog posts.
So many that I’ve developed pet peeves related to some of the writing styles/etc that I’ve run into.
I’m not going to call out anybody, and keep in mind that I’m not talking about any particular person – I just wanna rant.
Pet Peeve 1# that ‘aesthetic’ writing style
I think you know what I’m talking about.
hola my marshmallow childrennnnn 🌱how are youuuu? 🌸omg like tbh im sooo lazy lol that i cant evan puncctuatee🌱lolzzzz ✈️tbh being a fith gradar iz sooo harrd omg im so complicated omg my emotions i cant ⚡️
Yes, I have seen mucho blog posts like that.
What bothers me about this one is that the blogger can barely spell a single word.
Other traits of this “unique” writing style include:
• Lots 🎉 of ✈️ emojis🌱
• No capitalization
• Little to no punctuation
Pet Peeve 2# that ‘mommy’ blogger
I understand that being a young mom is fun and all, but does the internet really need to know about it?
Moms, PUH-LEEZE tone it down on your “mommy blogs”, because honestly no one gives a crap about your little Stacy taking her first steps. That’s a fact.
Pet Peeve 3# the ‘life hacker’
I could legit go on Pinterest and find the same dumb life hacks that you included in your blog post, so please stop.
Pet Peeve 4# “I have no idea what to write about, any ideas?”
Listen, blogging is not the most complicated thing in the world, so you probably won’t find it hard to find something to write about. Plus, you’re an interesting person! You have many awesome things to write about.
Oh, and if you “don’t know what to write about”, don’t post polls asking for ideas.
Pet Peeve 5# no featured image
You know how much this bothers me. I actually wrote a post all about it!
Pet Peeve 6# bringing politics into your non political blog
If your blogging wasn’t intended for politics, then don’t bring it up! Let your blog be a place where we can forget about what’s happening in the world around us.
I can’t fit all of my pet peeves in one blog post, so I’ll stop right here. 😉
