1. Leaving your blog link in your signature.
WHY do some bloggers have a problem with this?? I understand when people comment solely with ‘hey I’m having a giveaway!!!’ or ‘FOLLOW ME & I’LL FOLLOW YOU!’ that it’s annoying and disrespectful in a way. My blog isn’t yours to promote yourself. But why is it not okay to leave your blog link at the end of your comment? What if I want to come find your blog? What if I find your comment is funny and want to see what you’re all about? Can we all not share readers?
Some bloggers complain that some posts are only a rehash of Pinterest. I mean as long as it’s credited to the right source, why do you care what someone else’s blog posts are? We’re never going to go through every single photo on Pinterest. Sometimes it’s awesome to see ideas bloggers like!
Not everyone is comfortable sharing their relationship or family problems on the Internet. And yeah, everyone fights but SOME relationships just don’t have a lot of drama. My boyfriend and I argue. We’ve been in fights. But honestly, we don’t fight a whole lot and when we do it's generally civil. It’s normal for us to not have a lot of drama. Sure, our relationship isn’t perfect all the time but you won’t see me blogging about how annoyed I was when xyz happened. Why is not posting about this mean what I post isn’t my “real life”? Some of my favorite blogs seem like a dream world. They are SO lucky! Does that mean I don’t think they have issues sometimes? Nope. Does that mean I think their entire life is just traveling and being happy? Nope. Just because you don’t see it on their blog doesn’t mean you get to be jealous and complain.
Cry me a river. Page views can tell you a lot more than comments. Some of my favorite posts I’ve written have had just a few comments. Some of my less favorite posts have 20+. Not everyone is going to comment. That doesn’t mean you don’t have readers. And no one likes a complainer. People like honesty, they just don’t like complaining about petty things. Blog for yourself and hopefully the rest comes with it!
Do you have some insight on this that I'm not seeing?
