Hey there guys! Welcome to Daydreaming Discussions. This is a monthly feature created by me where I discuss anything bookish related or sometimes it might be about any non-bookish things as well. Also, be prepared for a lot of ramblings and rantings and you’re very welcome to be a part of the discussion.
Today I wanted to talk about-
So, there are a lot of things and each differs for a different person that makes us wanna hit subscribe a certain blog and there are also a few things which make us hit the unfollow button or just not follow at all in the first place. So, today I thought why not make a list of the things that makes me say no, nope to a certain blog! Here goes…
1. Cringeworthy Layout
So, of course, this is number one on my list. I love aesthetically pleasing things and if a layout is literally hurting my eyes, I am usually the one to skip. It doesn’t have to be super gorgeous but at least easy on the eyes. Blog design is the first thing someone notices before the content and if that isn’t good enough, people are likely to say goodbye even if the content is good. Of course, there are exceptions if I fall in super love with the content but it’s very rare. I seriously struggled with layout stuff in the beginning and I seriously still cringe when I think about the blog layouts I chose when I was still a newbie. xD
2. No Reviews
Being a book reviewer, I usually follow book blogs. Yup, I think that’s all I follow. xD But I have seen some blogs which are said book blogs but there are literally no reviews, at all. For me, reviews are a must if I want to follow a blog because otherwise what else would be there to fangirl about. There are discussion posts and other awesome tags but if it’s without reviews, then it’s a no for me.
3. No Commenting Back
This is the one I hate the most. I don’t get why somebody won’t reply back, like ever! Commenting is one of the things, that not only I but almost every book blogger loves the most because that’s how basically we all interact with each other. And I have seen a few bloggers who don’t even bother to reply, even on their own blogs. So, you guys can understand what usually happens if this continues…
4. Book Bashing
This is also one of the things I hate the most. I mean of course not everybody is going to like every single book, each of us have a different opinion about a particular book but when somebody instead of stating the issues they have with the book, starts bashing the book and sometimes the author as well, it enrages me. Even if it’s a book you don’t like, it doesn’t mean you can insult the author’s hard work just like that. I usually hit the unfollow button straight away if I find a review on a blog that I am already subscribed to.
5. Posting only book blitz/cover reveals/tags
This is kind of simply too repetitive as there’s no other creative content than the said things. I also occasionally participate in book blitz and cover reveals but if a blog has only that, then it’s just not interesting enough. I love and enjoy reading tags but if a blog only has tags, it is bound to get repetitive one day or the other.
So guys, what are the things that make you tick off a blog from your list? Do we have any in common?
