... and it has to deal with the blogging community and social media
Today is a bit of a rant blog, and I'm seriously sorry about this but there have been a few things that have been seriously irritating me about a few things within this community.
Overall, I love it. I feel like I've made quite a few friends and I enjoy reading these blogs. But there are always just a couple bad seeds, ya know?
Shoutout to all those people who "F4F" only to unfollow once you follow them back.
No seriously, thank you. This irritates me to absolutely NO END. I make the conscientious effort to follow people and pages I'm interested in. Yes, I'm interested in gaining readers otherwise I wouldn't be @blogger retweeters and using the #bbloggers, #fbloggers, and #lbloggers tags to reach a larger audience. But when someone follows me, I make sure to scope them out and I almost ALWAYS follow back. Ya know, unless your description is "I like to eat a**" (which has happened). People do this all the time on bloglovin and twitter.
SPEAKING OF RETWEETERS.
Repeating SPAMMING of retweeters.
You use the retweeter for EVERY TWEET. Or @ them multiple (like 4 or more) times a day. I feel like I'm ALWAYS seeing your tweets. And its the same tweet/link/post that I've now seen like 4-5 times today. Yeah, they're getting clicks, but only because I'm blissfully hoping that you've written something original. Only to be fooled by the same post that I've seen since Tuesday of last week.
On top of that,
The only tweets that are posted are @ retweeters or only for your blog, no personal tweets where I feel like I get to know you.
I'm guilty of this. And I'm trying to get better and making an effort. I am a bit afraid to start posting every little thing I'm doing but only tweet when I find something funny/interesting. But there are a few people who I follow who are guilty of doing this and show no signs of slowing down. It makes me almost not want to follow you because I'm not connecting with you anymore. Your blog was interesting, but I'm losing interest in you.
I don't know if I'm the only person who feels like this, but I hope not. Thanks for reading my rant!
