Friend Friday: Blog Pet Peeves

This was inspired by a post by Beautifully Invisible from a couple weeks ago entitled ‘The 10 things that drive me crazy about your blog.’ But before you read it, here are the 5 things that drive you crazy about blogs I visit. Also check out Katy's list too.

  1. Blogs that play music automatically.  Most blogs don't do this anymore. I actually rarely come across a blog that does but it is still a pet peeve of mine.
  2. Blogs that have an extremely busy background.  They make it too hard to read and I don't want to come back.
  3. Blogs that are far too narrow that there is clearly wasted space even on the smallest of monitors.  I even have a netbook and would find blogs that were too narrow for that little screen.
  4. Bloggers who never seem to answer a readers question on the blog.  I know some people reply via email but some questions are pretty common and I'll notice I have the same question a commenter already on there but then I can't find the answer. I get annoyed and leave.
  5. Blogs where I can't click on the picture and get a larger version of the picture.  Sometimes I like to see details and I want the option of clicking to see those details. 
What about you? What are you blog pet peeves?


  1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I actually come across the music issue more than you might think!

  2. Oh the music bothers me too!! I catch up on some of my blog reading at work (shhh!) and my heart jumps into my throat when music starts playing & I frantically 'X' out!!!


  3. Yes music at work is the WORST. I don't even understand how people think music is cool nowadays. My company's website plays music and it thoroughly annoys me (or it used to. I won't go to the Westinghouse website to find out since I'm at work w/o headphones plugged in.)
