Now before I start this post I would like to say that I am definitely generalising in this post. I am not saying that this is every blogger out there and probably only applies to a few. Also this is my opinion which I, like everyone, am allowed to have 🙂
It frustrates me when some bloggers act like they are the most important person out there and don’t bother about anyone with less followers than them or with less of a following. I love interacting with people (online at least) and it just makes sense to me that if you’re a blogger you should enjoy doing that too.
These are just things that bother me about bloggers – of course it is possible that I don’t understand the reasoning behind it so if you can shed some light on any of these then please do 🙂
- There are many promo hours where you drop your link and then comment on other people’s posts. If someone comments on your post it’s just nice to return the comment. It doesn’t have to be right then – you can always like the tweet when they say they have commented and comment back when you get the chance. That is the purpose of those promo hours – to read and comment/share. Obviously if you are getting thousands of comments then this might not always be possible but you get the general idea.
- Don’t tell someone you have commented if you haven’t. I don’t feel like I need to elaborate too much on this – it’s just not cool.
- Why is it such a big deal if someone wants to know what theme you use or how you edit your instagram photos? The blogging community is supposed to be about lifting each other up and helping each other! If you have any knowledge about something and someone else is looking for help then please share it with them. Everyone was a new blogger once – I still am one!
- I understand if you have thousands of notifications or get loads of comments it is not always possible to reply. However I so often see people that never reply to anything, especially on instagram and their blog. By sending a quick ‘thank you’ the person commenting knows you appreciate the time they took to write the comment.
Please know that I am in no way directing this blog post at anyone in particular! These are just my thoughts 🙂 What things have you been thinking about lately?
