Blog comments I can't stand.


So I recently done a post on "Why I HATE your Blog" and I really wasn't expecting it to be as popular as it was, So it got me to thinking about other things I don't like about the whole blog thing and what comes with it! This time around I settled on blog comments that I can't stand, you know the ones you read and wonder why the comment was even left in The first place? Sometimes I'm not even sure why I get so annoyed at certain comments, I guess there's just no need for them. This is also a guide of sorts of HOW NOT TO COMMENT ON A BLOG. Anyway, here's a list of the comments that I could be doing without reading.

Follow for Follow? 

Why.... WHY on earth would anyone come to a blog, decide to leave a comment & write out "great post, Come check out my post & lets follow each other" or something along those lines, you know the ones that have like two or three words about your post and then a few about why you should go follow theirs and their link? I just don't understand that. I'm more inclined to check your blog out if you're actually engaging with my content and just leave your link after your comment.... Don't sell me your blog in the comments of mine, I just don't see the need for it. 

Comment for Comment?

Okay, so you've came to my blog, read a few lines of the post and you're leaving a comment.... But you're leaving a comment for the soul purpose of asking me to come and comment on you newest post. Wait... What? Why? I just don't get it. Is it just me or is it a little cheeky if anything? Maybe it is just me but I can't stand it.

Visit my Blog.

Another one that really gets on my wick is the one that if left, much like the comment for comment or follow for follow ones, the "Visit it my blog" There's nothing related to my post what so ever, just a few sentences on why I should Visit their blog and their link... It's annoying and I'll just delete them, I find them quite insulting if I'm honest.

Nothing related to the post at all.

Now these comments don't get to me as much as the other ones do but it's still really annoying. So there I am reading a comment that's been left to find out that's actually not related to my post at all... Instead it's about a completely unrelated situation and it makes no sense to the topic at all, like, why? What prompted the person to leave this comment in the first place? It's confusing if anything. 

One word comments.

Okay, so like, I don't HATE these but I do always ask myself why? Because well, I honestly think they haven't read the post at all and are just doing it to leave their link. I've had a few before such as "nice" or "great" just the one word on the post and I found these to be left on my MH posts or something similar... I just don't understand it personally, I couldn't go over to a blog and leave one word, it wouldn't feel right just to leave one word and then leave my links.... doesn't feel right. 

And there you have it, blog comments that don't exactly make me beem with joy when I read these and it's not even just on my blog, if I'm about to leave a comment on a blog and see comments such as these ones I cringe a little! Is it just me or do you get annoyed with things like this? Let me know!

  1. I feel ya, girl! It's definitely not the right way to go about it. The person puts time and effort into their post for the comments to be engaging - not one word comments that just mean to link to theirs. There's no connection and no real reason to leave a comment like that. I can't stand those either. I'm glad you made a post about it, maybe other's will catch a hint ;)

    1. It really isn't! I appreciate comments and seeing what people have to say so when I see one that's one word and a paragraph on why I should visit their blog... I delete!

  2. My blog doesn't get any comments, but when I read other blogs I like to go through the comments afterwards. The biggest one that annoys me is "repost this on ten posts or else" Like, do these people really believe it or is it just so people will click on their profile? I guess we'll just never understand the logic behind clickbait comments!

    1. I know right?! I don't know about any other bloggers but I personally just delete those comments!

  3. I read a lot of blogs and comment on loads but I don't do it for any reason. I don't expect a follow or comment back....I comment because I like what I have read and want to show some appreciation to the writer.
    One word comments annoy me so much. What is the point. It's just lazy x

    1. I love to just find blogs, read and comment. I mean I always leave my link at the end so they know who commented but never say follow for follow or anything else like that!

      Delete
  4. I hate comment for comment, follow me or comments that just don't make sense. It drives me up the wall!

  6. I don't understand the one word commenters, that's just weird. And the ones that are unrelated to the post...why?? But I agree that the "comment for comment" and "follow for follow" ones are the worst. I don't even put my link because I feel like it's tacky tbh

    1. It's lazy and it shows they are only there to leave links I think. I don't mind people signing the comment with their name and or link because I like to know who left the comment and I leave my link but when it's a blatant attempt at leaving their link everywhere it's so annoying!

  7. The one that has really been getting to me recently and I'm getting a lot of is like "insert generic comment here with more than one word but it's still shit". Like "this is an interesting read. Thanks for sharing" because I feel like its a forced comment. There's nothing that says they really took anything in at all.

    1. YES! These sort of comments are just a joke, We are all writers here... I am sure we can think of a few more things to write... to me it shows they haven't read the post at all. xx

  8. The follow for follow ones do annoy me. I've never had the comment for comment ones before. Sometimes I think a person might leave a one word comment if you don't speak the same language but like to look at the blog images.

    1. The follow for follow ones just get deleted straight away here! They are so cringy and it means I'll never click on their blog which is a shame really.

  9. Oh I can't stand these types of comments Jordan! I'm so glad someones actually approached this issue. It really gets on my nerve x

  10. I can't stand lazy commenters or those that are only commenting for self promotion, it drives me nuts! 🙈 People who just write "love this post" are also really annoying, it's clear that they haven't actually paid any attention to what has been written! I do like it when people leave their blog links in comments as it allows me to go and check out their blog if they've left a nice comment, but when they write "follow for follow" or "read this post of mine", it's a bit frustrating! Thanks for sharing this, I'm in total agreement with you! 🙌🏼

  11. Nice.

    Just kidding. I hate these too... It's a shame but it seems to me that people who leave 'follow for follow' type comments are just looking for social media numbers. It's like, don't you want people to engage with your content and be interested in what you have to say? It's the age of YouTube fame where people want to get internet fame fast, I guess.

    1. Haha, They are horrible. I totally agree, they want to go about blogs commenting and then never reading or putting in effort!

  12. Great. Check out my blog? Nah I'm totally kidding, I related to this post so much, comments like these really do frustrate me, although I don't think its bad to leave your blog link at the end of a comment. I used to find blogs to read that way! But seriously: follow for follow, no thanks!

    1. Yeah these comments really do my head in! I just don't see the point in them what so ever.

  13. Love ALL of these! The funniest thing for me is when the frickin' promo links are LONGER than the comments, like - for real?! I think it's often a form of spam, tbh. I actually talked about this topic on twitter last night. In my recent post "21 home truths from 21" i have received the NICEST comments ever on my blog - 3/4 genuinely long, thoughtful comments. I realised that this means more than 500 IG likes or "great post!" responses ever could. I think with blogging we can get too caught up in numbers, doing things for likes and follows and it takes away from what it's REALLY about! Okay mini rant over :P THANK-YOU FOR THIS xxx

    1. YES! Why do people do that?! A whole link that's taking up the comment box after "Great post" haha Thank you for commenting. xx

  14. I've only just started blogging and this is also one of my biggest pet hates! Just because you've read someone's post and commented on it, does not mean the other person has to too!

    1. I think for a blogger of any size it's a pain in the ass! I'm more inclined to go check someones blog out who takes the time to read mine and leave a comment that's not begging for a follow or comment back

      Delete
  15. I agree with you on all points! When I first starting blogging I got a lot if those follow for a follow. I even being a nice person that I am (lol) followed some but they lied and never followed. One even had a nerve to come back and beg again for a follow!I don't even post those comments.

    1. These types of comments are such a waste of time for sure and it really is a bummer when you follow them and they don;t do it back after coming and asking for it.

  16. Yes these are definitely all annoying, I do check out links when people post comments as I feel that they have taken the time to read my post and comment but not any of those with just stupid one word comments, follow for follow etc. There is also some people that write "Amazing post! Thanks for sharing! :)" while it's not as bad as a one word comment quite often they haven't read the post. I read one last week on someone's post about their miscarriage, how they felt after it and how they eventually moved on and some twat wrote that!! It was later deleted but sometimes these types of comments are insensitive if they haven't read the post! Rant over :D

    1. I check links when people leave comments that aren't a blatant beg for a follow back etc.. That's just not fair to post those types of comments on any type of post never mind one that personal to someone!

      Delete
  17. This is such a good post idea! I completely agree with these points. I'd rather people didn't leave a comment tbh if all they're asking for is a comment, or follow.

  18. Really good post and I get why some comments are annoying. I feel like I would want people to comment on my posts because they find my blog interesting and the comment to show they have read the content. Great post again from you Jordanne!

    1. Yeah I would much rather people do it because they want to and even if they want to disagree with something that's welcomed as well!

  19. I really hate the idea of follow4follow. I follow the people whose content I want to see only. I don't like the idea of following others or others following me out of obligation. It feels so insincere!
