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.

New Blogger Day in WordPress: Contemplation Adorable Chickens and More!

NEW BLOGGER IN WORDPRESS:

 

I find this post by Michele Pruitt so cute, I couldn’t resist to show you her pictures and what she is all about in her new blog: Contemplation

But before I share with you one of the brand new posts, I want to welcome her to this wonderful world of blogging in WordPress.

 

 

                            CHICKENS IN THE YARD

 

 

I love having chickens in the backyard. Besides being interesting, noisy, and colorful, they provide my family with delicious eggs. It is also amazing to watch a hen sit on her eggs and hatch baby chicks!

 

 

Chickens do have personalities that are unique, some let you carry them around while others like to sit on your shoulder. They even get along with cats!

 

 

Overall, I like all kinds of birds, but i do love having and caring for chickens.

Community Pool … Where Has It Gone? I Miss It Bring it Back on 2019!

Yes, indeed, I miss the Community Pool in the Blogosphere of WordPress. 

 

There was lots of interaction and communication. I got to chat with many bloggers and know their experiences and points of view.

 

Also, everybody could check each others blogs, give advices and opinions about how to improve them. I hope WP brings it back, or another similar idea would be nice.
