On March 22nd, I will complete four years of blogging. It’s been pretty smooth sailing so far, just a few minor hiccups. I have made loads of good friends, learnt lots about writing and the publishing world and become smarter where queries and submissions are concerned. Most of my blog buddies have become great friends.
I just have a few blogging bugbears to talk about. So many bloggers who start following me leave no trail which I can pick up and follow them back. There is no link to take me to their blog. And as they have not left any comment it becomes difficult to follow them back. I would like to follow everyone who follows me, but unfortunately I cannot do that. Many times I google that blogger’s name and see if I can find their blog.
Many bloggers who have linked back to their blogs have so many blogs that it becomes difficult to know which to follow. Sometimes, I have to wade through all their blogs to see which one has been updated recently. Sadly, many of these blogs have seen no posting from months. Please, put the name of the blog wherein you post more often on top, making it easy for us to follow and leave a comment.
And then there is the word verification. You heard right. Some bloggers have not got rid of the word verification. This has single-handedly driven me up the wall. They are like pot-holes that I have to navigate in blogosphere.
What do you think of all the issues I have written about? Are any of these your personal bugbears? Have I forgotten anything that makes our blogging experience difficult?
