BB New Years Challenge * Pet Peeves

January 7, 2014 BB New Years Challenge 2

newyearschallengeParajunkee is hosting a Book Blogger New Year’s Challenge and it’s just what I need to get in back in the swing of things!

There is a new topic each day for the first 14 days of 2014. You can read all about it here and I hope you join in the fun!

Day 7: Top Ten Book Blogger Pet Peeves

Truth: I love making lists about pet peeves. ;) As always these are just things that aren’t to my personal tastes and you should always do whatever you want on your blog!



Blogging Pet Peeves

1. Blog headers that are so big they fill up my screen

I want to see your content!

2. Scrolling/rotating things on the sidebars

My computer is ancient and too much stuff that takes a long time can make my computer start to heat up.

3. Can’t find the follow buttons

4. A hiatus that isn’t actually a hiatus.

If you are only going to take a couple of days, or even a week, there is no need to announce an hiatus, just take a few days off!

5. Unreadable fonts/coloring

If I can’t read it I just click away :(

Book Pet Peeves

1. Looooooooong chapters

I HAVE to stop at the end of a chapter and I can’t do that when you make the chapters a million pages long.

2. Mid-series cover changes

This one really pisses me off. I like my covers to match thank you very much!

3. Super bad editing

If I notice the editing is bad then you know it’s REAL bad.

4. Rushed endings

Do not make me read 300 pages and then wrap everything up in less than 30 pages.

5. Extended series

Do not push a series past it’s breaking point just to cash in on it (Sookie Stackhouse, I’m looking at you!), end it where it needs to end.

    I agree with all of your peeves! Especially the one about things scrolling on the sidebars. Some of those blogs take forever to load! Sometimes I will read through a whole post and start writing a comment and then right as I’m half way through my comment the scrolling would finish loading forcing my page to refresh and delete the comment I was just finishing up! GRRRRR!!!!

    Great list! Giant headers don’t bother me for some reason, but the bajillion scrolling/rotating things on the sidebar drive me nuts! And don’t get me started on unreadable fonts & coloring! Why make it so hard to read your blog? Don’t you want people to be able to see what you wrote???
