I subscribe to quite a few blogs. Not sure how that compares to most people, but I feel I have a good range of exposure and there are just some things bloggers do that drive me nuts. Today, I will whine about them.
- No pictures, bullets or other emphasis ever - These bloggers tend to be confessional/personal experience bloggers who don't think that including pictures, breaking up and/or highlighting text might make their posts more interesting to their readers. Come on... you're killing me here. How many plain black and white posts do you think I can read in a row before I just stop trying? The answer - about 2, IF they don't turn me off in the first couple sentances (I know, harsh right?).
- Posts composed of a single link - Lots of different bloggers do this and I can't understand why. A sentance with a link isn't enough to get me to click through, it's just enough to make me annoyed that you can't properly tell me why I should bother reading something you won't bother making interesting. Bah!
- No links - Why mention that project your working on in detail if you won't let me look at it? Same goes for talking about groups/orgs or other blogs without linking. Just WHY?! This goes triple for people who tell you to read something, spend lots of time talking about it and then DON'T LINK so you can't find it.
- What I did this weekend posts - Unless your weekend was truly spectacular, odds are no one cares. Make it interesting, or don't make it a blog.
