just don't (part 2)

this is a continuation of “just don’t part 1”.

I try not to be negative, i really do. but maybe its the bad points that always seem to stand out more when you go through flickr or admin blogger groups.

This is the continuation of “10 blog photo dont’s”… except thIS IS MORE OF A “10 BLOGGER DONT’S”.


 

You may agree, you may disagree (which is most likely), but here are some things to remember when blogging…

  1. the sideways photos have got to stop.
    I get it. maybe you want your photo to be chosen as a group cover. I hate to tell you, but it sucks for those trying to check out your outfit. i hate having to turn my head just to see it. it really is hard to get a good sense of what you’re wearing.

  2. linking all 384 social media accounts.
    link your blog. maybe even link your facebook or instagram! but we dont need anything else. there is no need for your google+ or your linkedin or your snapchat or twitter or …

  3. lazy crediting.
    i totally understand not crediting your eyes, and some other random stuff you might wear in every photo, but please credit outfit/hair/shoes/etc. I remember scouring a bloggers entire flickr, going back to 2016, just to find out which rings she was wearing and she never credited them, not to mention over half of the stuff she was ever wearing.

  4. sending your post in group chat.
    its great that you’re proud of your photo and post. but no one gives two shits when you send it thru the blogger group chat in sl (aside from the manager/owner). just stop. everyone just closes the screen. just post it to flickr like a normal person.

  5. new sponsor announcements.
    awesome! you were accepted! no one cares.

  6. blogger logos.
    i only see a few bloggers who do this but i wish they would realize how damn ugly some of these blogger logos are - stop putting them on your photo. they really do ruin it.

  7. group spamming.
    this doesn’t even pertain to just bloggers. stick with the flickr group theme. please. stop shoving your photo in every single group that will allow pics. don’t be that asshole.

  8. finish your credits.
    don’t just credit the store name: please add the name of the item.
    don’t just credit the item either, please let me know what you’re crediting! its a bit of a pain when someone does an amazing home decor photo and i have to try and figure out what a single item is because the credits will only name the store/item name but the item name doesn’t even give a hint of what it is.

  9. novels for a flickr caption.
    i used to be one of the flickr bloggers (no actual blog site). simple credits are perfectly fine.
    store/item/event - thats the basic information you need. maybe even add in a slurl for the event. we don’t need every store slurl, marketplace slurl, store group, a run down of how much it costs, etc etc. i’ve seen flickr caption credits go on for daySSSSs.

  10. BLOGS WITH MUSIC.
    YOU ARE THE ONLY PERSON WHO LIKES THIS. TURN IT OFF.
