6 Blogging Related Tweets That Make Me Question My Sanity.

So in the very beginning of a blog’s life there is the networking stage that is necessary to gain a blog’s first users. These users are very important. They are your blog’s bread and butter in the early days of its creation. In this stage you have to go out of your way to make new ‘fwends’ that will with any luck turn into your first evangelists. These usually are fellow bloggers. Finding them can be difficult but if you know what you’re doing it can be done.

One of the ways that I like to do it is setting up a column in my Tweetdeck that shows me a live feed of tweets that include the hashtag #blog.

From this I pick out the good ‘uns. Blogs that show promise.

I will admit there are a few and I have reached out to a couple.

But then there’s the bad ‘uns.

*Insert mental shudder here.

After reading so much shite I’ve decided to compile a list of the most stupid and utterly ridiculous tweets that I came across.

I could have blurred out the usernames of these profiles but I think naming and shaming is completely acceptable in this case.

Let’s just start so we can get this over with as quickly as possible…

 


Tweet #1

Bad Blogs.png

Now.

This was the first one I really laughed at.

You can practically hear the falseness of it.

“How to make any industry riveting.”  

The only thing riveting about this tweet is the word ‘exciting’ before ‘insurance’ and how can you even put those two in the same sentence?

GenerateMoreSales, congratulations.

You made it on the list.

Tweet #2

LIST.png

This one just completely blew my mind.

I seen it and I just knew it was destined for the list.

Mother of God.

40 THINGS?

Are you like deadly serious?

What sane person going out of their way to write a blog post is going to stop and check that they included all 40 THINGS.

This is the complete opposite of the anti-procrastination attitude all blogging gurus preach.

At this rate it would most likely take you a week to finish one blog post.

But it’s allbecause guess what?

It includes a freaking free checklist!

WOOOOO!!!!

And what do you do if you forget to include one of the 40 things?

You’re going through em all like “…37…38..39” and then your like “fuckin’ forty.”

“I knew I forgot to add #boobs for more views. Gosh darn it, what was I thinking. Guess I’ll just have to write a new one.”

Shakir, congratulations.

You made it on the list.

Tweet #3

‘Nuff said tbh.

WomenInEvents, congratulations.

You made the list.

Tweet #4

It’s not necessarily a blog post per-say but I thought this was a kind of random tweet to see in my feed.

It’s not very unusual considering the account is about phobias.

But scotomaphobia is just such a strange word I thought why not include it.

Oh well.

ThePhobiaTeen, congratulations.

You made the list.

Tweet #5

anus.

This one unsurprisingly got me really riled up.

Now that you pose the question Marc.. 

How DID your blog get over 100 views from Twitter alone in less than an hour? 🤔

Well turns out you actually don’t have to click the link to figure out the answer to this question. The little blue tick gives it away.

That right there is how you did it Marc.

You might not be able to tell but the reason why I keep highlighting his name in italics is because I’m saying it mentally with pure and utter disgust.

Try it. It makes for a more enjoyable read.

This little stunt is simply conformation of how little content matters to these online marketers. They do absolutely nothing original.

They build their shit off of talking and letting on they know how to build up content and gain a following. All without doing anything whatsoever that has an element of creativity to it.

Coincidentally, I found this tweet today as well.

Blogging

Kind of the case here.

These people just want to be seen as experts but when it comes down to the hard truth of the matter, they really aren’t.

It’s the exact same with a lot of other “bloggers”  that only write advice pieces.

I could look at my column showing the ‘#blogging’ feed and I guarantee I could find you more than one of these empty blog posts about ‘7 Tips To Make You A Better Blogger’ that don’t mean jack.

They’re simply all over the place.

I used to write on another blogging platform, Medium, I recently left it and that was mainly one of the reasons why.

I just became tired of scrolling through my feed and half of it being exactly that. Bullshit list-icles that, again, don’t mean jack.

So, Marc. 😑

Congratulations.

You just made the list.

Tweet #6

fun

Finally, here’s the last one.

…yeah this another ’nuff said’ moment right here.

Just…

Yeah I’m just going to leave that there.

Lol.

LiezeNeven, congratulations.

You made it on the list.


 

This was a very interesting piece to put together. In a way it kind of feels very BuzzFeed-y, I’m not going to lie. But it was definitely really fun to work on and I’m probably going to do a lot more of it in the future.

If you have any funny tweets that you’ve come across recently, they don’t have to be blogging related, please send them to http://www.kidmentalist@gmail.com 

I would be very interested in reading why you find them so ridiculous.

Until next time.
