I feel like this post is long overdue, simply because as a journalist and blogger, I get pissed off by a lot of shit.
#1- WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO “TELL” YOU WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR BLOG.
As the CEO, the first lady, and simply the person who runs her own shit, it really grinds my gears when people, (especially those I don’t know) try to tell me what should go on my blog, whom I should interview and give advice when I don’t even ask them. People need to realize that lanes were created for a reason, therefore, it’s in their best interest to stay in it.
#2- BLANK MISSIONS
Nothing irritates a blogger more than being sent off. Whether we’re covering an event, doing an interview, etc, being sent on a blank mission, when we very well could’ve stayed our asses home and blogged. To avoid blank missions, I suggest that bloggers take as much control of a situation as they can, and make sure you communicate effectively with everyone around you.
A person who can’t conduct business properly is annoying! When people are late, rude, obnoxious, pompous, and everything else except a child of God is terrible, especially when you’re on someone else’s time. There is no real way to deal with unprofessionalism, other than that when it happens, learn from it and then have a no-nonsense towards it hence forth.
The last and final thing that pisses a blogger off….
#4- NOT RECEIVING THE CREDIT WE DESERVE
People always overlook the people, or person who makes someone or something famous. People hardly ever think to thank the blogger. It’s more of a personal thing, but I bet all people who write can simultaneously agree, that when we don’t get our recognition, our emotions can range from wanting to quit, all the way to reacting violently. But can you blame us? We’re writers, which means we’re sensitive about our shit.
Needless to say, DON’T PISS ME OFF!
