Ranting Friday Night: 10 Things I Hate About The Blogging World!

blogging things i hate ranting friday humor dr martha castro noriega mexico california los angeles america
  1. I hate that a blogger follows/subscribes to your blog, you follow him/her back, and then s/he unfollows you, hoping you don’t notice. I really don’t like this.
  2. I hate it that you give likes to a blogger, comment on his/her blog, and they never return the favor, not even at least once!
  3. I hate it that people unfollow you if your political or religious views or the lack thereof are different from theirs. What? Why? Can we be a little bit mature and respect other people’s views? Thank you very much.
  4. I hate it that people want to copy your content to benefit their own website or social media without giving you credit. Geez!
  5. I hate it that sometimes I have written almost the whole blog post and uploaded images and pictures and I click the wrong button and the post disappears! Have to start over or use the autosaving that WordPress left for me.
  6. I hate trolls. Icky internet trolls that pick on people, write hateful comments and are completely unhelpful.
  7. I hate Alexa Traffic Widget It doesn’t matter if your Alexa traffic rank is 1,000 or even 100 when the quality of your blog sucks. I mean, you know that Alexa traffic rank is just a number and it doesn’t reflect the ‘real’ traffic stats.
  8. I hate insane publishing frequency, like more than 8 or 10 posts a day?!
  9. I hate it when I don’t have enough time to respond to all my subscribers comments on my blog.
  10. I hate it when I visit a blog and it has infinite ads and pop-ups. I had a blog like that 2 years ago and it was driving ME crazy, LOL

On a side note, I’m pretty sure that there are some things that you hate about my blog. Criticism is always appreciated (as long as it’s constructive and NOT judgmental in my persona or MY freedom of speech), so do share it as a comment below.

Swearing in Your Blog Post Good Bad or Funny? Here Is a List of Some Swear Words.

Bad words, swearing, would you use them once in a while in your post? Some say that there’s nothing to lose by keeping things clean. In contrast, swearing will surely bother some people – so why take that risk?

Others encourage you to be yourself and embrace who you are. For many people, holding back is essentially a form of censorship; in fact, it is said that those who swear are more honest than those who don’t.

swering dr martha castro noriega

I thought about some swearing words I know and made a list, but I wanted to get more, so I went to a political forum where I know there are many of subscribers who swear a lot in their comments (it is permmited in that forum to do it). But sometimes, just for fun, would you do it? Would you swear just a bit?

swering dr martha castro noriega

Some swearing words are not that bad, but others are so insulting that I do not think I would ever use them, ever, not in my blog, not in person. So here there is a list of some that are not the worst ones though.

swering dr martha castro noriega

Damn, Crap, Bloody, Sod, Bugger, Git, Arse, Bint, Munter, Minger, Balls, Arsehole, Bullshit, Pist, Shit, Shithole.

Bitch, Son of a Bitch, Bollocks, Belend, Tit, Prick, Dick, Twat, Punami, Bastard, Dickhead, Wanker…the worst words that come to mind are so disgraceful I wouldn’t even refer to them at all. Freedom of speech is great, but it has to have some boundries.

swering dr martha castro noriega

MY OWN TAKE:

Is it ever okay to swear on your blog and/or general website content? In my opinion, it all depends. Know your audience, pick your battles, and go with common sense. After all, you probably wouldn’t swear inside of a church full of people, correct?

What’s your damn opinion? 😂

Shameless Promotion Wednesday for Everybody!

FRIEND ME ON FACEBOOK

OFFSHOREWRITER

Wednesday, the day of the week for all of us to just put our links in the comment section and start the “shameless promotion” idea. I want it to be fun and rewarding for everyone!. Just write the URL to your website or any social media of your preference.

NOTE: I will be adding the links you write on the comment section to this post in the upper section, the beginning, for more Google crawling. I will start with my link for this week to show you.

Promoting your website is very important to make yourself known in the digital world. The more you market yourself, your website and your social media, the more Google crawling, the more visitors to your site you will get.

So, if you blog for fun, hobby, business, eCommerce or professional knowledge, or because you just love to blog and write your ideas and chat with people in the comment section, you need to let the world know you exist, and one very useful way is to use links and make that other blogs link you back.

I have reserved this day for promotion, indefinitely, as long as it gets a good response from you and you like it. Just give it time. Be patient. It works!
