On ways to piss off bloggers...



I have wanted to write this one for a while...I spent quite a few times giggling as I typed it too. 
I am sure all of you know exactly what I am talking about but please feel free to tell me what else you think pisses bloggers off! 


Ways to piss off a blogger....


In real life....

- Not be patient with them when they want to take 5 million photos of dinner or drinks before you eat it
- Take them someplace that has shitty lighting (how will they photograph their food, and outfit, and drink, and perfectly placed hand w/Michael Kors watch?) 
- Complain about taking 100 photos of them in the same outfit posing 20+ different ways while its damn cold outside 
- Make a joke about their "blog thing" they do 
- Get annoyed when they say "I have to blog about this" or "Wait, I need to _____ for my blog."

Online....
-  Hate on the newest fashion "must have". For example, right now it is Blanket scarves - I hate them. Not going to lie. Too big and unless you weigh next to nothing they just add to the winter bulk that is not cute as it is.

- Hate on fancy planners. - I want one badly. So for now...I hate on them.

- Bitch about "Big" bloggers and all the things they are doing wrong and ways they are trying to tell you "Blog do's & don'ts" on your blog.  - I am always doing it all wrong so it just makes me laugh

- Complain in a post about anyone who suddenly tries to make any money off their blog...i.e. they are selling out, i'm sick of seeing ads, they have all these sponsored posts. - ummm if I can make some money you bet your ass I will. 

- Link up without actually posting about the topic. - no gracias. I looked at your page to see a post regarding the link up not to see 100 photos of you in an outfit

- Be a no-reply commenter - I just feel bad I can't reply back man!

- If you want to piss off mommy bloggers- Talk about children without having any - this is my fave. People get so angry when you talk about kids and don't have any. Apparently working with children for longer than they have had them isn't enough to know a damn thing.

- Show off all the wonderful, beautiful, fantastic things in your perfectly lit, posed and decorated life. - this always pisses people off on any social media



Can you add to this list?? What have you observed getting all the blogger panties into a twist??

I am like the anti-blogger blogger. I take photos of everything, but max out at three attempts to get a good shot. When the lighting is bad, I share the photos anyway. LOL And everyone in my life knows I'm going to take the photos so they just step back until I do.

I dislike blogger group think a lot. But it does exist and you've definitely hit on a lot of them! LOL

I HATE No-reply blogger comments. What's the point?

Hahaha love your list!!! I post grainy, dimly lit iphone photos and dont currrrr!

I think I am probably in the minority, but I hate on fleek, totes, amazeballs, yas and all these other cutie terms that bloggers throw in their posts. So me saying that probably pisses someone off. I already shared that I hate how to posts.

hahaha oh man, it doesn't piss me off, but it pisses my husband off when i want a million and one photos, or if i want to take a photo of something before we drink / eat it.

I could never spend $50+ on a planner! I barely keep up with it after the first month so it'd be a waste! Great list!!

This is SO. ON. POINT! Though I do love my fancy planner, but I use it daily so it was worth it for me! And I kinda really want a Michael Kors watch! I think the one that bugs me the most is the link-up one, because I participate in many of them. As for the no-reply bloggers, I may tell them once how to "fix" it, but otherwise I'm kinda like, wellll, that's on you, man.

These are all so true, I love them! In real life, my biggest pet peeve is when people make fun of me for "doing my blog thing" like it's one big joke. Drives me crazy and hurts my feelings, one big double-whammy.

Marie said...

These are all very true. I totally am guilty of always taking too many pictures. Drives everyone crazy. Most of them aren't for my blog, they are just for me. haha

Stephanie said...

The link up one drives me BONKERS. It's why I won't host any - it's too annoying to have to go through and delete the ones that don't follow the rules.

Love this list. My husband has just come to terms with the fact that I take pictures of everything (even before I started blogging). I've never understood why people want to put down other bloggers who are doing sponsored posts and or have started making money off their blog. I mean we all know how much time that goes into blogging, so why wouldn't you want to eventually earn something for it? Writers make money for writing books, musicians/singers make money performing, so I just don't get the haters out there on this topic.
