Question: Blogger pet peeves?
Answer: Hmm, what do you mean by blogger pet peeves? Does that mean pet peeves I have as a blogger? When it comes to my blog? Well, I do hate spammers. Haha, nothing like finding 10 emails in your inbox from the same person commenting on 10 different posts with a bunch of links. I'm just like…
I mean, I love genuine comments and connecting with my readers, but those spam comments just really bug me. I know I could change this problem by putting captcha on, but who really wants to type in a bunch of numbers every time they try to leave a comment here? And don't even get me started on how half the time I fill out captcha on other blogs, I can't read the numbers posted and it takes me like 5 tries to actually post a comment. Ugh.
Another pet peeve of mine isn't really something I've witnessed myself, but it has been something I've heard that other bloggers have done. And that's bloggers reviewing a book they haven't read just to have content on their blog. Who does that?
Oh, and people who rate books on Goodreads that they haven't even read before. A book that's releasing in over a year has a 4.7 rating? How? Nobody's even read it yet! And people who just love the author give their book a 5 star before it's released just because they're excited for it. Seriously, don't do that. I enjoy reading honest reviews and ratings so that I can see if I really want to read a book or not.
And those are my blogger pet peeves! Do you guys have any? I'd love to hear!
