Annoying Things Bloggers Do | Pet Peeves


Hey guys!
So I've been meaning to write this post for a while now, but holding back because I don't want to seem like a "hater" or "moaner". I think it could actually be an interesting read though and maybe start a discussion, so I'm just going with it! As a disclaimer this is not aimed at anyone, it's just things I've noticed through my time blogging.



1. Leaving a comment that  has nothing to do with the post
This one really really annoys me. I mean I get you haven't read every single bit of the post, but to leave a comment saying "great, follow my blog here" is quite rude! I know you're only stopping by to get a follow but at least make an effort to seem interested in what I've written about or don't write a comment at all.

2. Following someone on Bloglovin' and then unfollow as soon as they follow back
I really don't get why people make time to do this?! It's actually disheartening to see your follower count has gone up, to log in to follow them back and see it drop back down again as soon as you do, it's just desperate.

3. Too many product placement posts
Right, I totally get wanting to be doing Pr / product posts in which you are working with a company. I've done it before and I will hope to be doing it again soon. The thing is I've seen blogs "change" and as soon as they start getting free stuff - they do post after post about products they have received. Like it's products that don't even link in with they're style etc.

4. Constant Tweets to follow them
Again, I totally get why you would do this. Whenever I publish a new post I do share it a couple of times. But there's some bloggers that do it constantly!

5.Constantly apologizing for not posting
As I can be guilty with one if not all of these points, I have defo done this one. The thing is most people won't notice you haven't posted in a while. I know that's not what most people want to hear, but it's true!  :(


So do you agree with any of these points? Are there any things you find annoying?

  1. Ugh with the bloglovin one, the frustration is real girl! And the comment one; I see comments on my own blog that are incredibly generic like 'Nice post dear' which could easily just be a quick copy and paste job, without even reading a snippet of the post. You're not the only one that gets annoyed about that, trust me! xx
    Lots of love,

  3. These are all the same things that annoy me, but I am probably guilty of at least one myself. Apologies, great post. The comment thing is the one that really bothers me the most xxx

  7. I agree with all of these pints but the one that annoys me the most is the random comments from people that obviously haven't read the post and just write 'follow me'. It's so annoying and rude! x x x

  8. Hahaha! This is actually a good read. I am guilty of #5 because I tend to apologize for everything (I hate it but out of habit I do it). And I hate #1 and #2 the most. Those who follow you and if you don't follow back will suddenly unfollow. Like, why follow in the first place???? :)

    I love this outfit! I used to find bell sleeves a little too over the top but now I am loving them! I need to find that top you wore. :)

  10. That observation with bloglovin is so true! I also hate the amount of bloggers that wear cheap knock offs of high end designers. I get people not being millionaires, but it's a bad look to me. Work with an upcoming of local designer and wear something a bit more original instead.

  11. I once had someone commenting on a product that I wrote a bad review on it since it didn't work for me, and the comment said 'great product, sounds really nice' etc. I mean, I would prefer someone not leaving a comment like this that indicates they didn't read my post. And I also hate the follow/unfollow thing on social media.

  13. I agree with you on all of them. I can't understand the following and unfollowing... if it's just to get numbers that seems so unauthentic. People should just follow who they actually want to, and spend time building a community!

  14. Oh goodness, I can totally relate to this. Especially #1! It's annoying when someone didn't even read a little bit of your post and they comment "Great post! Let's follow each other on..."

    I do not mind reading product posts as long as it is not too impersonal and that they really used the products, and they should state cons as well. I really am a bit annoyed about the bridal gowns/ bridesmaid dresses sponsored posts everyone is doing nowadays.

    1. Yea I totally agree with that about product review... I've even posted on why I don't like a really loved product x

  15. I so agree with all of them! I absolutely find number 5 annoying, not when other people do it, but when I do it. Last night as I was writing a post after sometime, I had to fight with myself on whether I should at least include an apology sentence. despite believing that I should not be apologizing because I run my blog not for any other people but myself, that feeling is still there! hahaha.

  16. I can relate to most of them. Ever since I stopped the whole follow back thing, that doesnt annoy me quite as much though. My follower count grows slowly, but organically, and I couldn't care less.

  17. I also can't stand it when they leave a comment not related to anything you've written, those 'great' comments are just bloody rude.
