nopobloyourmom- not a fan.

i hate the whole post everyday for the month of november crap. i hated it when it started, and here.. however many years later, i still fucking hate it.

look people. what is the point? why are you posting every single day if you normally would not post every single day?!? just to say something that is utterly pointless, for the SAKE OF SAYING SOMETHING THAT IS UTTERLY POINTLESS?!?! it's annoying. truly.

i wish you all would stop. :)

and while you're at it, please for the love of my sanity make your reads full in your feed reader. i like to be able to read your whole post in bloglines- otherwise i don't have the time to click into each blog individually.

help me out here, eh?

yeah, i'm done bitching for today.

Yay me!!! There is now way I'd do it. Also I think the people who do it and post videos 80% of the time are cheaters and should be disqualified.

It drives me nuts, too. When folks post once or twice a week, the posts are usually interesting and/or funny. When they post every day, the quality of ALL of their work is inferior and I spend the entire month contemplating taking them off my reader. (But I can never quite figure out how to unsubscribe. I delete them and then they come back the next day. I'm a failure.)

Oh, and sorry if it upsets you that I post a little thing every day. It's only 45 words! The whole thing is in my reader! No clicking through necessary.

I don't get it either. I'm in an anti-campaign. It's much more fun. Like blogging should be.

DITTO. Thanks for saying it- it's like everyone is afraid of saying they hate it. Blogs just go to crap in November.

i dont think my blog is even in feeds cuz it's private now.

Jenna said...

I agree with you on both counts.

Too little time to read all those posts and click through!

Quality over quantity, I say.

What a whiny witch you are!


p.s. I was at Disneyland this past weekend too.

Gawd how I agree!! I hate the people who put the abbreviated bs in the feeds. I stop subscribing to them and put them in my bookmark folder.
And how idiotic is that naBLOWS thing?

Kristabella said...

I HATE partial feeds. My old job blocked all blogs, so there were some people I just couldn't read because I couldn't click through and I wasn't about to do it when I got home.

The first thing I said to Whoorl at BlogHer was "OMG, I'm SO glad you switched to full feeds because I can read you again!"

Also, the idea of posting every day is that you post crap and then eventually have a breakthrough and write some good stuff. It doesn't ever happen, though.

I signed on for blog365! A month of daily blogging is a walk in the park! And I only cheated with a plain photo post once (or was it twice?) and I posted two photos (at least one time it was two photos...).

Ok, so I'm guilty. i do NaBloPoMo.
Most of the time, I actually feel like I get more accomplished when I do it, because I often have a ton of thoughts in my head and then I'll forget to blog them and they will never get written down. With nablo I am forced to write them down.

I know some blogs do start to lose quality during nablopomo, but I would hope mine isn't one of them. For some reason, in november, i have a little more time and I can write more thoughtful posts. But if you avoid my blog for the month of november, I'll understand.

I'm also a 365 blogger- I post once a day for a year. That is HARD. NaBlo is a cakewalk in comparison. The 365 thing can get tedious, and sometimes, I think my project is a bit contrived- but I made a commitment and I'm sticking to it. It's forcing me to be more creative.

You lost me at reader feeds and stuff. I know nothing about all that newfangled stuff. I just bookmark everyone I like and do it that way. I'm old school I guess.

I can't ever remember what the acronym is but nopobloyourmom is pretty damn good. I HATE the 'every day' posting concept. WHY!?!??!?! I can barely keep up with my Reader as it is but now I've got to weed through all the fluff.

And, if you do a partial feed, your headline better be awesome to get me to click over. Or maybe just give away money and then I'll click.
