3 Reasons I Hate Your Blog

…And I’m Not Coming Back!

Normally I try to stay on the positive side of things. There are plenty of bloggers ranting out there! But today, I don’t know, I’m in a mood, and I just can’t hold it in anymore. Today I am ranting! Here is why I HATE YOUR BLOG!
You have any type of auto play audio.
I don’t care if it your favorite song ever, or if you think it adds to the “ambiance” of your site. I don’t like it. I have my own music, or more likely, I like it quiet. If you have those audio ads on your site that’s even worse. The minute I hear something coming from your site I am jumping for the back button. Hopefully, never to return.

You have “sexy” pictures on your site. And I don’t mean sexy in a good way. I don’t care how good your content is, if I have to look at boobs and butts I’m not staying. Number One. I’m not a 14 year old boy. Those pictures just don’t do anything for me. (And if that is your ad, there is no way I’m going to click on it!) Number Two. I have kids, and parents, and a husband. If they happen to see what I’m reading on my computer I don’t want to have to do any explaining about how those are only ads for other sites, and really, I just read it for the articles.

You try to trick me to click on your ads I hate being tricked. It also tells me that there is no reason to believe anything you write so why should I visit your site?

OK, I know I said 3, but I have one more, a bonus rant if you will.
I can’t find your content for all the ads. I understand making money. I have ads. Ads are great! But if everything above the fold is ads, why should I keep going? And don’t annoy me with flashing, neon colored ads. They give me a headache.

Wow, That was fun! Maybe I’ll do a rant of the week! But enough is enough. What do you hate about my blog?

  1. Boy, did you ever say what needs to be said! I’m with you. I also hate glitter signs, animation, unless I start it, and a lot of blather. Give me something to read or something useful and I’m out of there.

    I like the new look of your blog a lot. Keep it for a while.

  2. Well said. There seems to be a particular proliferation of such blogs on Entrecard – pics of women on the cards when that has nothing to do with the site, or trying to s*x up their card in the hope that more peole will click on them.

    Equally irritating are the sites that have a block of several banner ads and stick the entrecard in the middle of them. They may be above the fold, but that doesn’t help them stand out.
