Blogging dislikes.

Warning: rant coming up! 

Mademoiselle began all the way back in 2012, the July that I was thirteen. First, as Musiclover25.wordpress.com, taken from my Bluetooth name (!), with just a vague notion of what being a blogger is. I had seen an article in Shout, and had wanted to join-therefore, not posting, and just creating page after page. Awkward, no?

Then I got all serious, and changed it to notedinstyle.wordpress.com. This was a project to keep me busy over a weekend! Being a fashion blogger was not something I was suited to; writing about X, Y, or Z, with terrible graphics. And classmates soon found out about it, which was highly mocked. (Why wouldn’t they?!) 

Despite all this, and despite it not being profitable at all, I’ve come to love blogging-simply because it satisfies my need to write and share. But there are some things I really dislike..

Terminology.

The ‘blog’ is an overreaching, umbrella term for the whole website, which is a collection of writing. But the thing pinging its way to your inbox? That’s a post. (I’m sorry this is petty, but it’s a pet peeve of mine.

Drama.

Drama dominates my Twitter feed! And it’s often because X said something to/about Y, which caused offence, obviously, meaning people have to take sides. (Rude PR’S vs Blogging community is always an interesting scenario.) But I would love to just create content and read the work of my fellow bloggers. It gets dull otherwise, and is very childish.

    The whole “read my latest blog” thing has been getting on my nerves lately. I don’t know why it irks me so much, but I automatically roll my eyes whenever I see someone call their post a blog. This comment will probably cause drama if someone posts it on Twitter, hahaha
