Even MORE Ways To Make Fellow Bloggers Hate You

Class, I've been tagged by illustrious blogger, Sueblimely of Discovering Blogging, with the theme started by Mihaela Lica of the Dog Yard titled, "10 Ways to Make Your Fellow Bloggers Hate You."

Of course, these two bloggers have already scored the major hate-inducing habits of bad bloggers, so I'm left with crumbs. But being the Good (Blondalicious) Sport which I am and owing Sue many, many favors, I'll do my best to carry on with this theme.

However, I suggest you read their lists after you've read mine, and should you be misbehaving and using any of these techniques/habits/tricks, you might want to re-consider. I'm not saying my Uncle Vinnie's gonna come knocking on your door because he only does that for major crimes, but if you want to be more accepted, popular, and less-hated, these lists are major clues! Google Surveillance is strong these days, and trust me, you don't wanna get on Google's Bad Side. Capisce?

Carrying on with this important theme:

21. Posting videos of yourself all the time! Oh puh-lease! I'm weary of seeing your mug talking to the camera. Get over yourself! Once in awhile I like to see your mug so I can goof on you when I have nothing better to do, but don't make yourself talking to the camera a habit.

22. Don't endlessly complain about other bloggers ripping you off. Sure, they probably are (the dirty rats!), but that's because your information is so generic, it's easy to make it look like it could be written by them. If you have a unique 'voice' in your posts, other bloggers will recognize the ripped-off posts as yours, and they'll come a-tattling to you.

23. Don't be trying to sell me something. It seems some of the top blogs have agendas...have you noticed this?! I'm not impressed. Your mad selling skillzz leave me cold and wary.

24. Don't announce through Blog Catalog every last frigging time you've made a new post! Sure, I want to read your exceptional post, but don't bug me with announcements. And don't use the pity-plea that no one is visiting your site. It's a miracle any of us have readers considering what's going on in the world!

25. Don't compliment me in a comment, and then leave a link to your blog. This is NOT the way to work-it baby!

26. If you wanna shizzle my nizzle, you gotta keep your blog uncluttered. If I see a cluttered, messy blog with too much going-on & poorly laid-out, I don't stick around. Whatcha trying to do to me with all that confusion? Confuse me? Sell me? Hah!

27. Ego in a blog totally turns me off. I have Ego-dar, and I can sniff it instantly. If you're effing awesome, everyone will know it. And this means keep your photos of yourself hanging out with celebrities on your My Space blog if you hafta brag.

28. I don't want to read a LONG, long post. Hit me with your best stuff, and bottom-line me!

29. Viewing ads all over your blog and one BIG AD at the top where the header should be is stooopid & uglifying. Your BFF should have told you this by now! Or do you have one?

30. Do you have anything better to do with your posts than running YET another contest? Contests are fine if that is the focus of your blog, but if not, don't keep barraging me with another contest.

I'm so exhausted writing this post, I'm gonna go to the beach and relax. And if anyone who wants to add more to this list, join on in!

Hope you're having a Kick Ass Weekend!

And Mr. "Humor-Blogs.com", I send you warm greetings of Aloha.

    Brilliant post please come visit my blog on www.spamsplog.ego.com. Have I got a deal for you.

    I knew you could come up with something totally unique and funny, Kuanyin and I must remember never to shizzle your nizzle. I am not sure who would come out the worse off.

    For all the comedians who keep leaving comments and slavish praise, I remind you of #25 on my list! I will not publish your comment if it's spam, so give it up and go have a beer or a martini or something else. I'm not going to be suckered into posting your comment if you leave a spam link. But good tries!

    Thank youuuu, for the link love, for the great read, and so on. ;)

    And because today I am in my Monday-evil-anti-blogspot mood, I am going to tell you the same thing I told Sue: stop feeding blogspot. Get your own domain, eventually with your own name and start branding yourself. Backup. Save all your entries, because you have some very good content here, and one day you could even transform this into a book.

    Now it's the right time to leave you an affiliate link, but... I don't have any... he he.

    :) Yes, I do have blogspot blogs.

    22. I know. And people are so worried about that. It's insane. (Maybe I'm just jealous because no one wants to steal my stuff).

    24. I stopped reading these announcements. It's a shame.

    27. I have a photo with Dennis Hopper. One day I'll put it on my blog and it will be the most awesome thing the world has ever seen. I promise.

    When you say top blogs are you talking about me? Ouch, I have just broken rule 27. Your rules are as great as these rules I saw in http//here. Oh my, there goes 25! It's not my fault I swear I am trying to be cool. If only people visited my sponsors instead of complaining. Is this comment too long? Hey, are you still with me, can't you hear me? Hmm I think my connection is down.
