I've read a few posts that have talked about pet peeves on blogs. So, I started wondering: what do I do that irritates people when they visit?
Apparently Playlist is one of the top peeves. I had Playlist on my blog at one time, down at the bottom, but I didn't have the music playing automatically. I have to admit, sometimes when I visit a blog, I have to quickly scroll down the page to find the Playlist to put it on pause. This is mainly because YS has borrowed my computer and has turned the volume up loudly. Of course, the better choice would be to make sure the speaker was turned off before I started browsing, but who thinks of that! There are a couple of blogs that I visit that have an awesome playlist. Sometimes I'll leave those blogs up while reading others just so I can listen to the music.
Then there's the comment moderation. Apparently this really irritates some people to the point that they don't leave a comment, or don't revisit that blog. So, I turned the comment moderation off, then got a couple of spam e-mails. I've turned it back on. If I don't get a few comments because of it, so be it. I'd rather not get some comments than have some humongous virus on my computer that Norton didn't catch.
Since we're on the comment subject: I try to respond to each comment I receive. If the commenter has an e-mail address link with their profile, I'll e-mail. Otherwise I'll visit their site and leave a comment. I get a little frustrated if the commenter doesn't have their blog address available in which to link; I feel like I'm not reciprocating their time.
When I read others' blogs, most of the time I leave a comment. Sometimes I'm rushed for time, so I'm doing good to just briefly visit. But, please know, if I follow you, I visit at least once a week. I also don't have time to go back and revisit someone's post after I've commented. So, if you want to comment on my comment, e-mail me!
I usually post in the mornings, but since
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and take a peek into my extremely boring life! Constructive criticism is welcome...in fact, I have received a couple of suggestions that were wonderful! Y'all are the BEST!
