Things Bloggers Don't Love

Sunday, July 14, 2013


As promised in this post last week, here's a follow up regarding Things Bloggers DON'T Love.
Is it bad this list might be a little longer?


1. Bad internet connection.
The backbone of blogging is internet, so when I'm not connected, I'm gonna be mad. So basically anytime I'm at Starbucks or the airport.

2. When I'm out with friends and they say, so are you gonna blog about this?
Thanks to that comment, no, no I'm not.

3. Losing Followers.
Whether it's on Instagram, or GFC, or bloglovin, or Facebook, it all hurts the same. But especially on Instagram when I post a photo I'm pretty excited about (usually it's of food or Harlow) and I immediately lose about five people. That's a real kick in the chest.

4. No-Reply commenters. 
Please for the love of God make sure you have your email attached to your user name. Because if you don't and you leave a comment, we are not able to respond to you. Instead we start to respond, then go oh shit after we realize we're responding to no one. If you're rarely getting responses to your comments, I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume you don't have your email attached. 

5. Gifs that don't work.
If you use gifs you know what I'm talking about. They move when you find them, but not when you post them. WTF?

6. Spacing issues.
Screw you, Blogger, I said no SPACE!!! NO SPACE! 

7. Same goes for font issues.
Anyone else struggle with this? Sometimes Blogger refuses to let me choose the font I want. And then I proceed to freak out and hit my keyboard like a monkey with a baseball bat.

8. When people like to give me "topic suggestions."
Every once in a while is fine, but every time I see you is not.

9. Bloggers block.
The same as writers block only a little worse because we attempt to browse other blogs hoping to "find an idea" while we wait it out. Which brings me to #10-

10. When I see a post I wish I would have written.
Damn it.

11. When the girl who started her blog six months after me "passes me" in a week.
Damn fashion bloggers. 
Just kidding, we all love looking at pretty photos of clothes. But seriously, damn you.

12. When I think I take a good photo but my arm looks fat.
Side fat-arm ruins lives.

13. When someone leaves a comment who's probably never read my blog. Like ever.
"Love your blog, girly! And great post, my favorite you've ever written!"  This would be nice, except the fact I got this comment on a day I had a guest post.

14. When I put so much pressure on myself to write a post.
It's just a blog post. Twelve year olds write blog posts. I need to stop pretending I'm writing articles for the White House sometimes. 

15. HTML.
I hate everything that has to do with HTML.

16. Spelling and punctuation errors.
Whether it's a word missing, or the same word twice, the humiliation I feel is always the same. Same goes for when I see errors on my friend's blogs. Do I tell them or do I not? I feel like it's almost as bad as not telling them they've got a booger hanging.

17. When I have zero photos to post. 
(Like this post.)

18. When people Tweet about their discounts codes all day, every day.
I'm a fan of running discounts on ads every once in a while, but 35 times a day, 7 days a week, is a little much, no? Yes.

19. When my traffic is lower than normal. 
This bothers me more than I'd like to admit.

19.5 Hashtags
More specifically on Instagram. I understand that many of you love them, but hashtagging 20+ things on a photo seems like a bit much doesn't it? We get it, you're wearing clothes.

20. When it's almost Monday and the weekend is over.
Enjoy what's left of your Sunday.

I'm going to go out on a positive note here and mention one from last week I forgot to say regarding things bloggers love... business cards! Check out my new ones!




I'm going to be real honest and say I'm not quite sure what to do with my business cards just yet, but I love them and that's all that matters. These were created by the one and only Sarah from Venus Trapped In Mars, or as I call her, the girl taking over blogland. If you don't know Sarah yet you should. The girl is good.... At just everything it seems. So head over to her page already and hire her for all of your graphic design needs!

On that note, I'm out.

  4. This totally made my day:
    14. When I put so much pressure on myself to write a post.
    It's just a blog post. Twelve year olds write blog posts. I need to stop pretending I'm writing articles for the White House sometimes.

    Thank you for that! It's so true...

  5. I love those business cards! So cute!

  6. I really like this post. (And I swear, I actually read it and everything.)

    ReplyDelete
  7. Great! I have been out of touch with keeping up with my favorite bloggers so I missed your things bloggers love post but I'm going to check it now! Cute business cards! Oh how we do love... I have two different business cards I rotate through!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Stupid arm fat. And then I feel dumb for being "that girl" with the hand on the hip but it's the only pose that doesn't create the fat. #bloggerproblems

    ReplyDelete
  9. I am OBSESSED with your business cards and blogger spaces make me very angry!

  10. First time reading your blog. Found it on a RT. Like and very true. I'm just realized no one can ever reply back - since I switched to wordpress. I'll have to make sure I fix this on my blog. Thanks.

  11. this cracked me up! I agree with like 95% of them <3

  12. I am absolutely in love with your business cards! Dang, that girl is talented. And bloggers block is the worst. I've been experiencing it for the past week.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hey Taylor,

    I swear you just read my mind! Gahhh I can't stand pretty much every single one you have listed!!

    My most hated issue though is when I join a link up, I actually visit blogs, read their posts and about them so I can decide if I like them and want to follow them, then I actually do rather than people who join a link up leave the arbitrary "Hey found you blog through the link up, follow me at dontreallycareaboutyourblog.justwantnew/blogfollowers@attentionwhore.com'

    Okay maybe that was a little mean but it really annoys the hell out of me GRRRR!!

    Love your business cards, I am all about yellow accents and chevron!!
    Have a great week.
    Love Gi
    xx

  14. Arm fat in photos and being "passed" my blogs only out there a month or two. Burn. (Loved this!)

    ReplyDelete
  15. #10 = me right now. Loved this! I'm always happy to read posts like this because they assure me that I'm not crazy for feeling the over-passion I do for my blog sometimes.

    Keep the good stuff coming!

    ReplyDelete
  16. This was a perfect post, that I needed to read. PERFECT!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Agree with all of the above!! I get the "are you gonna blog about this" from my family and friends all the time...um YES. Get over it! lol

  18. haha love number 12. Nice work.

  19. The business cards are cuuuuuuute! Litter them everywhere. In bathroom stalls. Leave them with restaurant checks. Just get creepy with it, I say.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes, yes, yes to the call for advertisers 1,000 times a day. We get it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. LOVE your business cards! I feel like I have major blogger block this summer. I totally needed to read this to feel like I'm not alone in practically all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hahaha every single one of these is so true! I love this list even more than the other one!

    ReplyDelete
  23. This. All of this. The people that give me topics really get my goat. Like seriously, every time I see you, you give me a topic. One time it was Kim Jung Un. But seriously, do you even read my blog?! Because I'm pretty sure Gridiron Lipstick isn't out there solving the world's problems.

    Also, this post really made me smile. Thanks for the love last week. Give Harlow a big hug for me.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love your blog, girly! And great post, my favorite you've ever written!

    Ha, just kidding. Great post though. I am not much of a blogger, but I agree with most of what you said!

    Also, what's with people unfollowing when you post a photo of your dog? Maybe that's why I lose followers. I do post a lot of photos of my dog.

    ReplyDelete
  25. LOVE the business cards! Sarah's amazing - I've just hired her to do my blog :)
    You're actually hilarious, btw.. I'm totally meaning this and not in the "love your blog girlie.. xoxoxox" way hahah.. that's a big no-no: call me a blogger nazi, but read the person's blog (or at least the post) before you comment!
    this list is 100% accurate - just got back from vacay with no wifi. safe to say my iPhone data took a tumble this weekend :(

  26. why does Blogger do the space/font thing? Seriously? I thought it was supposed to be user-friendly. I am guilty of previously being a no-reply blogger. So happy I was saved and shown the error of my ways,
    HTML? I don't get it! I google "blogger html how to..." and hope I get the answer.
    Thanks for the post and for allowing me to vent in my comments.
    Arm fat? I have all over fat.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love like all of these!! The no-reply is so sad. I had a girls weekend and didn't have Internet you would have thought I was being tortured because I was! Totally petty but yes when a newbie comes along and blows up it stings a little, but oh we'll everyone has a different journey. Here is to you awesomeness!

    ReplyDelete
  28. the business cards are really cute. start giving them out to your comedy friends from your class!!

    #3: have you REALLY lost followers from pictures you've posted?? wtf that's just redic.

    #'s 14 & 15. hell to the yes.

    and let's not even discuss # 19.5

    #blogger #firstpostoftheday #ilovemyblog #hashtag #businesscards #thingsbloggershate #ihashtageverything #followme

    baha. those people on instagram have. to. STOP. !!!


    p.s. i recently deleted my blog - so if i come back as a no reply blogger, i'm sorry!! -lauren

    ReplyDelete
  29. Glad you got this post up, I am loving your business cards! Sarah helped me fix my no-reply blogger situation so I am now not on the list of things bloggers hate!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I hate long hashtags! A few are ok, but when it takes me more than 30 seconds to read it that just makes me angry.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha! Love this post! So funny & true! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't tend to handle slow internet connections very well. And losing followers does suck. These are right on!
    And your business cards are awesome. I want business cards!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes yes yes to everything. I especially hate the paragraph of hashtags on IG that many people use (really, #boy?). I taught myself coding when I was younger, so I don't hate HTML, but when it doesn't go my way, I've been known the slam my laptop shut and throw a tantrum ala toddlers and tiaras.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Too true. I went on a trolley bar crawl in lake view Saturday. As I was taking photos, I had at least 4 people ask me "are you going to blog about this?" Well, not anymore thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  35. agree agree agree. And apparently I'm one of those ###### lovers! Well according to my friends. But I don't think I'm that bad. Am I? haha.
    Who cares!
    AND SCREW YOU HTML! Don't understand why they invented that. Just screws up everything!

  36. I agree with just about everything you posted here!! Except for me it's I take a good pic and one of my eyes looks fat instead of my arm. One tends to look cock eyed and then I cannot post the pic. And I don't put too much pressure on myself to post. One of the perks of being a "little" blogger. : ) HTML can go to hell!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Blogger has turned into the biggest bitch of my life lately with these spacing issues. She never used to fuck with me until recently, and now she does it every damn day. And I can hear her laughing, because she knows I'll keep coming back for more no matter how much she hurts me.

    Also, I just personified Blogger. FML.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ugh so true. Leave me alone hashtags and people who want to tell me what to write about every time I'm around you and random ass spaces in Blogger. Wahhh.

  39. I wish I would have written this post... damn it! ;-)

    Seriously though... I can relate to every single thing on this list. I don't have very many followers and I lost two in the past week... ouch.

  40. So I'm kind of going to do number 13, but I'm just getting back into reading all of my blogs, and I know that it's been awhile since I've commented, but I LOVED this post and I really wish I could've written this post. Seriously, girl. Your posts about blogging are the best.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Amen sister. I'm not even a big time blogger and I whole heartedly agree.: Arm fat ruins everything. Happy Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Gahhh I hate 'are you going to blog about this??' said with a smug smile on their face. Yes, I blog. I blog about my life. Very good. Keep talking and you'll have a whole post about you ;)

    ReplyDelete
  43. My Internet was down all week last week and I thought I was going to lose my mind!!!
    I was making notes each day like a mad woman so I'd know what to blog about when I got up and running again.

    Enjoy your week!

    ReplyDelete
  44. If I had those busieness cards I would be passing them out like candy on Halloween they are absolutely adorable and so professional!
    Love this post girly best you've ever written (;
    xxoo,

  45. Number 4. SO SPOT ON. I have no idea how to respond to "no-reply bloggers". And yes, totally get the side fat-arm. No idea how to get around it, as "hand on hip" just looks ridiculous in some situations!! xx

    ReplyDelete
  46. "Love your blog, girly! And great post, my favorite you've ever written!"

    PS- I HATE THML or whatever that awful devil crap is called.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I laughed and nodded my head through ALL of these - but ESPECIALLY number #13 TOTALLY made me smile!! :) I had a girl who kept writing me comments on my VERY serious posts about my health (cancer) and she would always say something like- "LOVE this post- join my link up". BUT it was ONLY on those posts!?!? Obviously deleted those comments... but hahaha people are funny!!
    :) Thanks for sharing this!

  48. but no really, side fat-arm does ruin lives. the worst.

  49. i love those biz cards. for real.

    GREAT POST, can't wait to read more!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I hate the fact that my setting say my email is there and attached but it isn't and no matter how hard I try I can't semm to fix it so bloody frustrating. I also get annoyed when I think of a post but don't have the time to write it and by the time I do I have forgotten the post.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Freaking amen when it comes to internet connection. I am pretty sure we have the world's worst internet connection, it is constantly kicking me off of the internet on my laptop, desktop, and netflix! I keep threatening to call our internet co but still haven't gotten around to it.
    P.S. I love your business cards!

    ReplyDelete
  52. amen to hating 5+ hashtags (especially fashion bloggers). I've totally stopped following people because of that!

    ReplyDelete
  53. UGH yes to nearly all of these!!!! Also- I know I used to be a no-reply blogger and I thought I had it fixed. But more often than not I don't get replys to my comments. Which makes me sad - so maybe it's not fixed. :(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's not fixed! Hurry fix it!

      Delete
    2. UGH how????? I know there are bloggers out there who have posted about it somewhere...

      Delete
  54. I feel the exact same way! And yes, Sarah is TAKING OVER! In a good way.

    PS. Is it just me? Or do some of the fashion bloggers with a billion followers dress like total crap? I guess they are the inspiration for the other shitty dressers... aaaand I'm going to hell. Like I have room to talk.

    ReplyDelete
  55. UGH dead on!! And what bothers me even more about the no-reply blogger situation is that Google plus likes to pull quick ones on me and change it without me knowing. Drives me insane!!!

    And the guest post thing, drives me crazy! You clearly didn't read my intro if you are commenting on how much you like my blog and me... shaking my head...

  59. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
