I am far from perfect in my writing. However, when I blog, I do my best to ensure everything is spelled properly and that my grammar isn’t too terrible.
People who can’t be bothered to spell things properly, or feel like writing novels of inane drivel, that contain little to no punctuation, drives me insane.
I love checking out the Tag Surfer button on the dashboard. I’ve found a lot of the blogs that I’m currently following through that nifty little feature. It’s also shown me tons of garbage blogs. Honestly, if you can’t spell, or at least have the courtesy to add punctuation to your blogs, please make them private. Save us all from the horrors of your English language slaying lolspeak.
Here is a list of other things that disgruntle me.
1) When people can’t make the effort to capitalize the beginning of blog posts.
2) People who can’t make the effort to spell ‘thru’ through, ‘2’ two, or any of the ‘they’, ‘their’, ‘they’re”s, and ‘your’ or ‘you’re’.
3) People who don’t know that there’s an ‘enter/return’ button at the end of their pinky finger, thus leaving us with one giant block paragraph (and sometimes, with little, to no, punctuation) to wade through.
4) People who blather on about Jesus Christ and God’s love. Why do you need to blog about it? Isn’t there a book out there, I’m pretty sure it’s called THE BIBLE, that talks about it enough?
5) People who write one sentence.
6) People who lament, but refuse to say what is going on exactly. Why bother blogging if you can’t say explain the situation that is making you upset enough to blog in the first place?
7) People who only post pictures.
8 ) Spammers.
9) People who number all their blog posts. Really, why would you number every blog post? LAME.
Here’s a little reference guide: (I pulled most of this from dictionary.com)
2 – a number
to – preposition, used for expressing motion or direction toward a point,person, place, or thing approached and reached,
as opposedto from ): They walked to the house
too – adverb, in addition; also; furthermore; moreover. Young, clever, and rich too. There is too much mayo on this sandwich.
they – They went for a walk.
their – Their house, their dog, their sex toys. It belongs to them.
they’re – a contraction of they are, THEY ARE being ridiculous, they’re being ridiculous
a lot – very many, a large number; also, very much. You wouldn’t write alittle, so don’t write alot. e.g. There are a lot of idiots in the blogosphere.
alot – IS NOT A WORD.
