Pet Peeves

Having to ask for something more than once at a restaurant.

People that ask "where are you at" or "where did you get that at"..I can't be the only one that had to sit through English class and learn about proper Grammar.

Teenage girls..need I say more?

People that leave comments on my blogs that have NOTHING to do with the blog..they usually go something like this "your newest follower please check out my blog at xxxxxx" , I usually delete these or ignore them...if you'd at least say SOMETHING about the blog you just read I'd be more apt to come check out your blog.

Blogs that are 99% product reviews...do people really keep following you?

I think that about does it today...time to go spread some cheer!

Oh my goodness, you are so spot on! I have thought about posting a million times about people who come by just to say follow their blog. I also hate people that just follow your blog to up your followers and so the "I'll scratch your back, you scratch mine" philosophy comes into play. Maybe it's just me but why in the world would I follow someone's blog that I have no desire to go back to? I mean seriously?! Not only does it clog up my blog feed so it's harder to find the blogs I do like on my feed - but isn't it a waste of time for both? It's like when myspace was big and everyone just wanted to make sure they had the most "friends". My philosophy is- why follow my blog unless it interests you and I'm not interested in beggars on my blog. Drives me insane.
As for the bloggers that are 99% product review - I hear ya!

Alright, enough of my rant - I would go on forever! Love the post!

Kristina I totally agree with you about followers! When I was just starting I would follow almost every blog that I read and now my blog feed is a mess...when I get time I go thru and delete but it takes forever! It is a shame because I've found some really great blogs and I have a hard time finding them again thru all the clutter I've made myself. Thanks for the comment on my blog! :)

I have to say I love your pet peeves list. My favorite being blogs with nothing more than product adds. and those that say Im your new follower. ReallY! Following me why? I too like to know you read my blog. Im new in blogging and those are diffiantly annoying pet peeves.

Mom says she agrees with the pet peeve about teenage girls...especially when they are in their twenties!

I'm with you on the product reviews (among other things on the list!); I won't do them -- why read it, when you already know they're going to rave about the item to get more free stuff??? Visiting from the Lady Bloggers ... :)

love this.

I do have to say though I get over 250 visits per day and I'm mainly a review blog. I guess people want to see what "new" products I have to talk about or my opinion on something. I have no clue. :) And I only post positive reviews on products I enjoy. I am honest in what I say about them. Products I don't like I ask the company if they really want me to post about them and I usually get a "no", it's a respect things.

I follow back all blogs who ask me to follow. It's a number thing. If I really really am interested in their blog I subscribe to their email and/or follow them on twitter. That way I can keep up with them.

And congrats on being featured on the Monday blog hop.

I couldn't agree more! Even though I found you through the hop! I especially liked your article on Being Online! I seem to always be on here doing something, but like you said just when I think I'll take a break things happen! Keep up the good work!
