Follow For Follow
I honestly think that this one bugs me the most. If I follow someone, it’s because I like their content. Not because I want them to follow me back. If you post ‘Follow for follow?’ on my blog, chances are I won’t even look at your blog, let alone follow.
Why do so many bloggers ignore their readers! I think people forget that they wouldn’t have the following they do without them, and the least they could do would be to reply back to the comments that people have left on their page.
Bragging & Brats
Nothing annoys me more than braggers and brats. Piss off already will you?! I completely understand that when you’re honestly not trying to brag, it can be difficult to actually prove to your readers that you’re not. But there are definitely a few people I’ve come across that I want to bitch slap, but I do understand wanting to show off things to your readers for them to enjoy reading! It’s a difficult one with a very fine line. Also, I’ve seen people kick off because daddy brought them the wrong colour car. Be bloody grateful for Christ’s sake!
I recently came across a blog whose background was dark red, and their writing was dark purple! I honestly couldn’t read a single word, unless I highlighted it with my mouse! If you want people to read your posts, make sure that they actually can!
Giveaways That Have Lots Of Rules
I’m not going to lie, I’m all for a giveaway or a competition, but I do find it annoying when they have a massive paragraph of rules! Obviously I understand if they said U.K only, must be following me etc. But, when people say that the only way to be entered is to follow them, follow their friend, follow their sister, follow their nan, follow their dog, subscribe to email notifications, post their blog post on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat, and finally make an hours long video on why they’re the best blogger out there, it’s a bit extreme. Basically, if you’re going to do a giveaway, keep this photo in mind:
