  • Blog Pet Peeves and General Bitchery

    Does this forum belong to me, or what?

    Clearly, I have a lot of problems with the rationale behind blogs, and the people that have them.

    Blog Gripe of the Day(Blog-GOD!)

    People with multiple blogs for various purposes. I understand that the general purpose of this is to cut down on making your readers (dare I say...fans?) read a bunch of crap that they might not be interested in. On the surface that sounds like a fine idea.

    But.

    What it really is, is an exercise in self-importance. Is what is happening in your life really that important?


    I'm not refering to say, Fox having a separate blog for the NaNoWriMo, because that is something completely different, and is used for posting a big amount of material. I'm talking about people that have different blogs in order to make a commentary (...hey!) on different fandoms, etc.

    WHY? How much spare time do you have? How many websites do you need before you FEEL COMPLETE?


    Thank you and Goodnight!

    *breathes sigh of relief*

    Okay, then you're talking about the insane people, who take "fifteen LJ codes" to mean "fiften LJs, so I can have one for every group of friends."

    They make me want to stab people.

      Considering how often you use your main diary, I think it makes total sense to keep one with your novel-length BSC fanfic() separate.

      I'm refering to people that even link their other blogs to each other. "Check out my Lord of the Rings blog! And my Good Charlotte blog! I also have a Pictures of My Ass blog!"

      I don't get that at all. Why a whole different blog just to comment on your opinions on different things? If you're that open enough to the extent that you're linking them to each other, why separate?

      BlogGod:
      Too. many. bells. and. whistles.

      It's a diary, for Beek's sake! Keep it simple. It should not take my computer ten minutes to open your page about how much you love Gollum and how he was robbed of an oscar because your damn background was so many pixels.

      And while I'm at it, cut back with the moving shit, please? It's distracting. One cute little icon that moves slowly is fine. But check the speed in Animation Shop, K?

      I also don't want to download some stupid ass cursor or see a friggin' cursor trail that has some pithy quote. END IT!

        *raises hand*

        I'm planning to have a blog too, just for talking about weather. I think it's very interesting. I also like The Yankees and my lunches and would like to be able to speak my mind about them. Should I get them each a separated blog or could I combine all the three topics? I need all of you blog watchers to help me decide what will be the best and suit me the most perfectly, as an American.

        If this additional information will help: I have a big ass.

          I think that sounds positively riveting, Herman. Please let me know when you get it up!

          Blog-GOD:
          People over the age of 14 that devote their blog to one celebrity, usually creating icons and a background of that person as well. You're an adult and you're never going to be/fuck that celeb.

          Am I the only one who thinks it's weird for women to have pictures of just Mandy Moore, or whichever female celebrity, all over their site? I don't get the whole hero-worship at all.

            There's a weirdness on LJ where people forget their anonymity perhaps because so many stick to their friends lists and forget the rest. But, there are lurkers everywhere and there's this new meme?/questionnaire out there and peeps are giving their WHOLE names, place and date of birth and place of occupation. I mean, come ON.

            I'm beside myself.

            I *am* hoping the phone messages catch on. That could make for great fodder.

              Not everyone is as cagey as us, Sarah.

              Hee.

              People that get blogs who were mildly amusing or entertaining in their own way, even if it was simply through their daily doses of dumb..and the blog reveals that they were even more boring than was ever thought possible.

                Dude! The phone posts are great!

                ...I am such the LJ tool.

                  I kind of enjoy the LJ phone posts, but Roxy and I friends-locked ours for good reason -- it was lame and we don't need random Internet people listening to it. Ha.

                  What I hate are the people who post five or six extremely boring entries every day. These entries usually consist of one or two sentences, and are often posted within five minutes of each other. Dudes, EDIT your FIRST entry -- or hey, don't post boring crap no one cares about in the first place. Thank you. I think I've kicked most of these people off my list now, though (along with those who can't spell and all the crazy fangirls), so I've actually been enjoying my friends page recently.

                    I have seen people put their entire name and home address out in public on LJ too, so they could get Christmas cards from people. I think if you try you can find out this kind of stuff about most people - we all have weaknesses in our cages - but you should make them work a little for it.

                      Oh, hell, these damned long nails combined with a lot of don't-give-a-shit caused me to screw up my user name. Well, you all can mock me for that later.

                      So, I'm not a member of the "fandom" anymore. Any. Fandom. So could you all just go away? I swear you people are like flies that you can't shoo away. Get a life. Dawson's Creek is over and you didn't get any from "The J". Oh, shit, I used somebody's saying again.

                      So why do you care what my journal looks like or what is posted in it? Which isn't much, actually, because the good stuff has always been friend only.

                      You all are, for the most part, grown women. With jobs.
                      And kids. Probably not husbands, but whatever. And I haven't been stalking you to figure that out, it's just what I've gathered over the years.

                      Anyway, I'm on the phone with a friend. My best friend, actually. The one that I didn't meet on the internet. She agrees that you all are freaky as shit.

                      I'm not posting because I care what you all think of me. I'm only posting to ask that you not watch me. It isn't normal, and that journal is tied to my real life. Something that you all are not tied to. Something I don't even think you have. I don't know if I am disgusted by you or just pity you.

                      How many journals does a person need? How much time do they have?

                      How much time do you all have that you sit around night and day talking about people you don't know? You had to make an entire message board and website devoted to downing other people. Not to mention the one that you've had going for years now.

                      I don't know or care what your deal is but leave me out of it. It's was funny, then it was weird, but now it is just stomach-turning.

                      I only came here because someone e-mailed me that you all were at it again. I won't be back. Now that I've said what I have to say I would actually appreciate it if you could delete my account. I don't want anyone to think I am associated with this. It's embarrassing.

                      Anyway, stop stalking me. You women are freaking me out.

                        Dude, you posted a public entry with all of your personal information in it. You know somebody here found it and that some of us read it because we said that in public on this board, but you have no idea who else was lurking with an actual nefarious purpose. I think the point was not to snark on your LJ (which I haven't read so I have no idea on whether it is snark-worthy), but to point out your *incredible* level of comfort with public disclosure.

                          Did you tell her you also posted your entire name, life history and a ton of personal information that can be used for not only stalking but identity theft? I'm sure your parents will appreciate their information out there, too.

                          It's YOUR public bed, now lay in it.

                            Actually my father passed away so stop assuming things you know nothing about.

                            And you are making too big a deal out of this. I, too, am a grown woman and am not going to post any information that could get me into trouble. I don't think people can do much without your address and social. All I have on there is my name and birthdate. And don't correct me by telling me all the ways my identity can be stolen.

                            Yeah, my best friend knows because she sent me the thing. She still thinks that you all should get a life and nose out of my business. What's it to you? You know nothing about me, but if you did, you probably would like me very much. I'm a likable person. However, since this is just the internet, I just want you all to leave me alone. I know that sounds childish but I want to cut all ties from this fandom and you all do not make it easy. I wasn't going to come back, but I will keep checking back utnil I'm sure that this is resolved. I am incredibly embarrassed that I ever associated myself with Dawson's Creek and the fanatical people I have come across on the internet with the exception of a select few.

                            Before it has all been for fun, but when I ask that you just go away...why can't you?

                              Um, nobody was even mocking you, you stupid attention-hungry bitch!

                              You came here and insulted US. The only thing that was said was that it's weird to give all of your personal deets (TM: ME; TM: SB) on a web site that anybody can look at. If you post something on the internet and choose to let it be a public entry you are inviting people to know personal things about you so stop fucking whining when someone takes notice.

                              I'm so fucking sick of you and your friends sanctimonious bullshit! I'm sick of the hypocrisy! I don't know how you're not choking on it!

                              YOU go away; I'm happy where I am. You CHOSE to come here and take the time to register to make bizarre comments about us and our ability to get and retain men. Really, is there anything more stupid than a woman insulting another woman's ability to get a man? How fucking pathetic! I don't need my friends to acquire pet penises for validation, thanks anyway!
                              It’s just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.
