Blogs that I hate.

04 Jul

Ok not really a list of the blogs that I hate, but rather some of the things bloggers put/do/make on their blogs that can almost immediately make me click on the ‘X’ button on the top right hand corner of my browser without even assessing the blogger’s writing style.

Do note though, this does not really apply if in the first place, you know the blogger well and/or has some sort of favoritism for him/her.

Here we go!

THIS IS RANKED! IN ORDER OF MOST IRRITATING TO LEAST IRRITATING.

1. Black background + White fonts = Pisses me off immensely. I get ghosting and my head spins after reading them for about 5 mins. I ABSOLUTELY ADHOR that!

2. Ads. The sight of ads seriously pisses me off whenever I visit a blog. My stand has always been this:

Blog because you FEEL like it, not because you THINK you should. Why plod a fucking factory right smack in the middle of a beautiful forest?? tsk tsk.

But let’s face it, ads on blogs are so common this days. I’d be glad if out of 10 blogs I visit, 2 doesn’t have something related to NN or whatever. So I’ve more or less toned down my analism on this issue. Nowadays, 5 ads is the most I can tahan, AND they must be neatly arranged and NOT obstructive.

As long as I see it without me searching for it, I’d deem it as obstructive.

3. Embedding music. man. darn irritating, especially when it’s in the middle of the night and you forgot to turn down the vol. of your speakers, than suddenly WWA WAA WAAAW WAAAWWAAWWA SATAN BAM BAM BAM HELLHELL BAMMM BAMMM 666 BONK!!! some heavy metal music starts to play. =.=

If there is a stop button for your ‘music player’, I will press it and CONTINUE to read your blog. If there isn’t any. HAHA then even if you write like Mr brown I will also click the ‘X’ button.

(I mean if you want to embed, at least turn auto-play off! very easy one what right or not? respect the readers and the readers will respect you!)

4. Fancy Fancy &darn boliao functions. For example: cannot highlight, copy and/or paste, stupid pop up box when I come and/or go, decorating my mouse pointer without my permission, ‘Snowing’ in your blog, etc. etc.

ALL I WANT IS TO READ WHAT YOU’VE TYPED! nuff said.

5. Many MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MANYYYYYYYYYY photos, Then 3 words only.

www.flickr.com nuff said.

6. Slow loading. I think this applies to all website i visit, not just blog. so yeah. ….I mean, You like slow loading MEH!?

7. Navigation. To go here, please click here, then click here and here and then here to go back to here and then if you want to go here click this one next to go here. click finish liao please click here. …How about I just click the X button?

8. This is somehow related to point number 7. Poor design. I mean oh my god. I have to search for 30seconds just to find the blardy main page link! (when i’m reading a permalink) THAT is seriously wtf.

9. Again, related to number 7 and this time, 8. NO main page link AT ALL. usually people will put their’s on the title of their blog. but some blogs I’ve encountered TOTALLY don’t have this function! So If I want to go back, I have to GO to the URL bar and input their blog’s url. how lame….

10. Scary looking people. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Oh come’on, I AM BUT A HUMAN!!

(ok ok, to be fair, if ya write well, I won’t kpkb so much, just.. try your best not to camwhore too much yeah? *feels like author is talking to himself… hmm)

 

Again, let me just emphasize the fact that I’m not very anal when it comes to my friend’s blog. slightly irritated, yeah. But I can live with it. (though it wouldn’t hurt if ya were to change!!! 😀 lol )

This post is just my thoughts on blogs THAT I HAVE NEVER EVER VISITED before.. and seriously speaking, I don’t think I’d ever go back should you fall under any or all of this points I’ve made so far.

Unless you belong to the latter half, (6-10) then I may or may not  continue to read just so I can see whether or not your writing is worth it for me to tahan.

Ultimately, it’s a blog right? Simple, easy. =D

 

PS: yeah yeah I noe I have my own cons. Not happy, just shoot. I will change, should I feel like it. Remember, I owe you nothing.

=D

Next topic shall be about ‘what kind of writing style/topics on your blog I hate the most’. hmm.. that one should be short lar.

    You better just stay at your own blog then. Complain so damn much. Who do you think you are to dictate what you like on others blog. Your blog looks so plain and just like piece of dead wood.

    While your blog title is misleading, there are points you made that I agreed upon. Especially the embedding of music. I think that’s fine, so long I see a stop button. Then again, that could not be enough as the music starts again when viewing a older page.

    I heard there’s a new braille device that allows user to read blogs/internet

    maybe you can try that, the visual/sound part solved :p

    Have to agree with some of your points! I’ve loooooong wanted to blog about similar topic too! But my list of to-blog-list just gets longer and longer! So ya… maybe I’ll try to move this topic up the priority list.

    I like blogs that are clean and neat and everything aligned properly. Makes reading easier.

    But hor, if really don’t like the blog, then don’t go back and read loh. Haha!

    @Notey –> lol. who are YOU to dictate that I ‘stay at my own blog’? and WHO ARE YOU to dictate that my blog is ‘plain and just like a piece of dead wood’?? hmm.. so are you in one or more of the categories I mentioned? You DO sound upset.

    @Jonathan Kong –> hmm… I do agree it’s abit tad misleading, come to think of it. Ok. Noted. Shall try not repeat it in the future.

    @vveijie –> hmm.. but I really do hate them?

    @uncle sha –> Great idea! Now.. if only I understand braille…

    @cLaUdIa –> yeah. as mentioned, I never go back. I mean.. there are SO many blogs out there, I gotta be real strict in my filtering ya know? Else is just NO TIME NO TIME!

    Aiya, chao just stated the blogs which he doesn’t like what. He is not claiming that his blog is better than those which he doesn’t like. For all you know. Maybe chao hates his own blog.

    WAHHAHAHAHAAA

    @power ranger –> and which line in my whole post, did I say that my blog isn’t boring? and as a matter of fact, is one of the BEST in the whole blogosphere?

    Open your eyes bigger next time.

    PS: calling the other person a ‘bugger’ ain’t very nice. but it’s your call. XD

    Maybe you should have renamed the post “Things to avoid in your blog design”, then people won’t misunderstand your post…

    You make a few really good points. Embeddable music is terrible! Anyway, what do you guys think of having a shoutbox?

    @Danial Tsou –> Modify something just because of a person’s stupidity? Sorry I’m not THAT bendable. Though I’ll *try* to be more careful next time. Thanks for your input btw. =D

    @beckgiggs7 –> Why only like that? how about point 5?! KNS! YOU MUST AGREE WITH EVERYTHING I SAY! RAWRRRR! wahahahaha

    @yongwei –> Bro, I’m just stating my opinions. Ultimately, it is your blog. Do what you deem fit. You can’t cater to EVERY single readers out there. What’s the most important is that YOU, the writer/owner/admin, feels good reading it. =D

    @Yonghwee —> The Shoutbox, IMHO, is a nifty thing to have as it caters to people too lazy to use the comment box(or just boliao and want to let you noe they are here). Just make sure it’s well suited up to handle spambots. =D

    @paced —> lol. still go and analyze until like that. hmm actually, i forgot to add, I tend to cover one eye when the particular blog belongs to a babe. 😉 HAHAAHAHA!

    @paced –> don’t make me say so obvious lei… I shy.. *blush You noe I noe can liew. 😉

    @a_x —> I still want to live longer. Thankyouverymuch.

    But do pardon me for the slightly misleading title, I’d refrain from doing so next time.

    @Payucash –> Not exactly, IF let’s say for example, you are chin pretty, BUT eu tyype rike dish, I will mind. 🙂

    PS: I’ve taken the liberty of removing your link. Sorry, NO commercial advertising here. if ya not happy, tell me and i will delete the whole thing. =D
