Are you making a fatal mistake that will keep readers from EVER coming back to your blog? When discussing their pet peeves, #crafterminds chatters mentioned a few big blogging mistakes over and over again. Are you guilty of these easy-to-fix problems?
From our #crafterminds chat 12/27:
Blog Pet Peeves:
dollarcraft: What’s your biggest craft blog pet peeve?
infarrantly: Definitely having to wait for stuff (paint/glue) to dry!
dollarcraft: Hear that, everyone? More process pics!
SouthernRhoda: Agree, music on most blogs is annoying
tabbiecat77: Yes! Music on blogs is just awful!
modpodgerocks: Craft blog pet peeve – can’t find an e-mail address of the person who owns the blog to contact them
kpwerker: My biggest craft-blog pet peeve is bad writing. Photos are super important, but so is good communication
modpodgerocks: Another crafty blog pet peeve – slow loading time b/c of too many pics and buttons on the front page
SouthernRhoda: One of my pet peeves is a black background. So hard on the eyes!
And, back to the Music:
makeandtakes: Ditto, not a fan of music
PosyMosey: Oh yes! MUTE!
smshedpncarrots: Ugh totally agree!!
aisletoaloha: Oh don’t get me started on the music. HATE it!
modpodgerocks: If I hear one more John Mayer song on a blog, I’m going to jump off of a bridge.
hiyaluv: roaring with laughter!
dollarcraft: *dies laughing*
infarrantly: But your body is a wonderland!
