Maybe This Is Why I Don't Read Your Blog...

The following is meant to be humorous and not insulting...

1. You are unaware of common grammar rules. (FYI: A lot is Two Words and Your does NOT mean You Are).

2. You can’t even be bothered to capitalize I, or your own name (or really anything for that matter).

Both 1 and 2 are very distracting to read. I just can’t take it, maybe because I’m an English Teacher.

3. You haven’t taken the time to personalize your blog and are still using the same boring Blogger template. You could have the best blog in the world, but I’m not going to stick around to find out.

4. You don’t update at least once a week. I got bored. I moved on.

5. Your views make me think you might need a straitjacket.

6. Your blog is all about your kid(s). Like I care; don’t you have a life outside your kid(s)? A two-year-old’s life is not that interesting. (I like kids, but a blog about kids I don't know is not really that interesting. Plus, I think it's dangerous to post pictures of little kids. Some skeezy pedophile might download them.)

7. Your blog is narcissistic. This usually means you have A LOT of pictures of yourself in what you think are sexy poses.

If none of these apply to you, please drop me a note and maybe I’ll swing by and check out your blog.

This made me laugh. A lot.

I'm overly paranoid about putting pictures of my kids on the internet. You just never know what kind of skeezie perv is out there look at them. *shudder*

This is one of my biggest issues. I think that if people want a blog to chronicle their family memories, that's fine, but they should make the blog private and only allow their friends to see it.

I love this! I am an editor and it drives me CRAZY to see that kind of stuff.

I just think that if a person is going to create a blog that anyone can see, they would want it to look at least somewhat professional...

That said, I make mistakes all the time. Luckily, my biggest mistakes are spelling and there's usually a convenient red line under those mistakes!
