My Blog Pet Peeve

There are a lot of things that piss me off. I am a fairly unreasonable human being. I’m not kidding, you can ask my husband, my mom or any poor sucker that has gotten stuck listening to me rant and rave about how much I hate Kurt Warner this week.

Whatever. I am off topic already and I am only one short paragraph deep into this post which I had originally intended to be a tweet. (Damn you 140 character maximum. I can be brief, but I am human. Sometimes I need 150.)

Make that off topic twice in two paragraphs. It is fortunate that my blog pet peeve isn’t bloggers who stray from the intended theme of the post.

I currently have more than one paying job that requires me to read blogs. (I know, my life it tough.) In the course of some of my busier days it is not at all unlikely that I will read 250 different blogs in a day. There are a lot of things I find irritating. It bugs me when people use more than four colors of font in a post (except Bossy. She can pull that kind of thing off. Most people can’t.), blogs that have yellow backgrounds and hot pink writing hurt my eyes, I find 20 blinking pieces of flair in a sidebar annoying – it is like the people who put all that shit in their yard for Christmas.

The single thing that will assure that I will not read a blog (unless contractually forced to do so by my employer) is if I click on a url and I am assaulted by the writer’s favorite music.

I don’t want to listen to it. It is distracting. Sometimes it catches me off guard and it actually scares me. Sometimes it wakes my children up if I am trying to get some work done early in the morning.

And take a second to think of those poor people who are trying to read blogs at work with0ut getting caught. Nice job loud blogger. You just got my friend fired. I hope you are happy we all know you like U2 now. It is nice to see Bono finally getting some visibility after all these years.

Where is the font for sarcasm when I need it?

I suppose the short version of this rant is that my new blog pet peeve is when blogs play music.

Huh. I guess I could have tweeted that after all.

  1. I completely agree. It’s utterly ridiculous.

  2. Hey… I want your job too! :)
    and yup… me be not a big fan of musical blogs either… I am already too ADD… :)

  3. I agree with everyone and that doesn’t happen very often!

  4. AMEN! I would add that I don’t like contact forms or people that bury their contact information. Makes it hard for me to contact you. What if I have something witty to share?

  5. I must agree with you on the music thing, it bugs me too

  6. Imagine the sweatshop of the new economy when you have to read 1500 tweets!!

  7. Amen.

  8. Lord, how did you even manage to compile such a succinct list. Nearly everything in the Universe gets on Bossy’s nerves!
