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.

Funny Serious but True: 15 Things I Hate about Eating

funny serious dra martha castro tijuana los angeles america mexico

 

Funny Serious Things I hate about eating and eating habits:

 

funny serious dra martha castro tijuana los angeles america mexico

 

My funny serious but true things I don’t like about eating:

 

  1. I hate that I have to count my calories mostly all the time so I don´t gain weight.

  2. I would love to eat  beef medallions or a big chunk of steak everyday without worrying that if I would clog my arteries with triglycerides and…..oh no!

  3. Cooking everyday? Yup, gets awfully tiring doesn’t it, especially when I have hundreds of other things to do during the day.

  4. I over eat one day, then I feel guilty

  5. Spilling food on my new blouse or dress.

  6. When I cannot control myself and have double servings, my belly feels pretty bad. Yes, I hate this feeling and then the guilt…sucks!

  7. I hate when people eat with an open mouth and make noises…it is gross!

  8. I can’t stand to eat with people who  don’t have manners at the table.

  9. I don’t like it when people want to impose their eating preferences on me: are you a vegan? I am not. Vegans  have this annoying way of preaching their beliefs upon others, it’s my choice and you can’t expect everyone to go vegan.

  10. Gluten in my food.

  11. GMO food…ugh!

  12. Having to unbutton my button/s after eating.

  13. Heartburn anyone?

  14. The food delivery people take too long…I lost my appetite by then.

  15. Oh, I hate eating alone.

Bloggers Rant about Instagram Being Ruined 5 Solutions

Bloggers Rant:

 

A Little Ranting (and Honesty) About Instagram Growth

 

Sometimes I feel like the blogging community is a sisterhood of unstoppable ladies (and some gents) who can do anything and who support each other no matter what! Sometimes I feel like the blogging community is full of nothing but Regina George clones (or worse, Regina George clones in sheep’s clothing…aka Taylor Swifts) and it makes me crazy.

I can never really decide which is more accurate and this is probably the biggest reason why I’ve had approximately 4 blogs over my adult life (2 of which were fairly popular) and just up and deleted them after I got tired of the bulls*t. I’m not at that point now but I did want to address a few things and since this is my blog, I figured this was a better place than Instagram to rant.

INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT WITH 897 THOUSAND FOLLOWERS

 

Are social media influencers ruining Instagram?

 

Yes Definitely.

Instagram is a photo sharing application. In the beginning individual uses share pictures without any hashtag but now hashtags are used on such a large scale to reach the wider audience and influencers are abusing it.

 

Those who have more than 10,000 follower are turning into influencers. For good looking individual and especially girls is an easy job to get so much followers.

SOLUTION:

Well, there’S a solution for everything in this life, and hence to make your Instagram account grow again, get it fixed and unstuck:

1. Use hashtags the right way and frequently.

Hashtags link your photo to targeted communities, niches and keywords that people search for like #healthybreakfastideas in cooking niches. These communities, groups and people searching for content that’s relevant to them are less likely to see your posts without hashtags.

 

2. A CTA (call to action) tells your followers what to do next. For businesses, that “next step” should be signing up for a newsletter, going to your website or buying your product/service.

 

 

3. Have good context in the caption

 

4. Have a strategy for Instagram

 

5. When your content is stale, well, it is discouraging. Make it diverse!
