So, a couple of days ago we got our internet and phone service back [the bill was paid a day late from when it was due, so we suffered the consequences smh.]. The T.V service is still not available, because my family members, myself included, are too lazy to call up the Verizon people and hold up a serious conversation for thirty minutes or more. I definitely have to record when my brothers answer the Con-Edison/Verizon/telemarketers/any-professional-employees’ phone calls… They fake a ‘brown accent’ and actually annoy, or fool the person on the other line LOL. I wouldn’t ever do that.
Anyway, here are 10 ways to torture a blogger:
1- The internet not being available for five days straight is the #1 way to torture a blogger. Although, I did cheat by using the school library computers on the first day of when we were disconnected from the world (talk about hibernating).
When talking to a blogger in real time (you know who you are) and saying things like:
2- “Oh, I went to your blog and I would have thought your posts would be more mature”…for real?
3- “I don’t comment on your posts, because they are too complete”. WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN!?
4- “You should write about stuff other people want to read”. Most likely, the blogger has heard this a million times and is ready to throw you in an empty well.
5- Writer’s block… general issue with bloggers, writers, artists, etc…
6- When a blogger asks you “do you read my blog”, you answer with a ‘no’ of some sort. A blogger never wants to hear that, especially since he or she knows that you know that this-he-or-she-blogger has a blog. Do not do it.
7- When two bloggers are talking about other bloggers and their blogs, person C interrupts and wants details.
Blogger’s advice to person C….make a blog. It’s fun.
8- When you ignore the invite to ‘like’ the Facebook page of the blogger’s blog. Do not ignore it; the blogger personally invited you dang it.
9- Critiquing a blogger’s post in person, real time, in the comment section, or any other way of contacting the blogger. Don’t be a hater and keep the negitivity to yourself. I promote peace.
10- When you don’t come back to read more posts or when you don’t comment anymore. An emotional blogger’s worst nightmare.
