As I’ve mentioned before, I observe a lot of unimportant stuff.
So let’s talk about the second most irritating habit of bloggers : stupid, irrelevant comments.
I had written a post about a wonderful app called ‘Google Translate‘.
Like all ‘The Taunting Tempest‘ posts, it was intended to make people laugh, not to light fires or burn down blogs.
But one blogger (a complete stranger) decided to comment in a very special way.
You can hop onto the post to read the entire comment, I’ll just post a snippet of it over here :
And he goes on, and on, and on. How in the world does he have so much time to explain the meaning of words, when his comment isn’t even remotely related to what I posted?
Also, I am sure I took less time writing that post than he did writing that comment!
Anyway, this was my reply, and then his reply :
My observations :
1) In his first comment he says that maybe he belongs to the group which uploads utter bull**** posts.
2) In his second comment/reply he can’t stop speaking about how amazing his blog and his posts are.
Make up your mind, you confused multilingual individual (I could have used a better word. *wink*).
I absolutely hate it when people try to promote their blog through arrogance. If you’re going to behave like an arrogant prick, why in the world would I want to read what you write?
Another classic example, a comment on the same post :
I don’t understand this comment. In what way is it related to Google Translate???
I am sure you all have had some lovely person comment on your posts, “Great post. Do check out my posts/blog as well.”
The thing these people don’t realise is that by forcing others to visit their blogs they aren’t attracting visitors, they are hunting them away.
Where has true appreciation gone? Why can’t bloggers comment on posts they genuinely like, with no intention of gaining more ‘likes’ on their own posts?
I’d love to hear about the wonderful, irrelevant comments you’ll have got on your posts.
Don’t worry, your secrets are safe with me (and the other bunch of people who spy on my post’s comment section).*wink*
Thank you for reading! Stay blessed!
