FBFF - Blog Pet Peeves

Pet Peeves... Don't even get me started.  I've got a million!  This week's Fashion Beauty Friend Friday's topic is blog pet peeves.  After almost a year of following numerous blogs, certain things can bug you just a bit and below you will find my top 5.  You can go over to Modly Chic to see the peeves of my fellow bloggers - Thank you Katie for another interesting topic.

Before you read my pet peeves, I'd like to mention that none of these are mean hearted in nature and I'm am probably (definitely) guilty of most of them.

The five things that drive me crazy about blogs that I follow:

1. That darned lace skirt from Target - You all know the one I'm talking about. 

Mainly, this is a jealousy issue on my part.  I hunted this skirt down and brought a large in to the fitting room and it was way too small.  So then I brought in an XL and an XXL and neither one looked good on me.  The skirt keeps showing up and haunting me - it is almost like that super cute, popular girl in highschool who dated the cutest guy, was voted cheer captain, won prom queen, was a candy striper, got perfect grades and never had a bad hair day.  Lace skirt, you peeve me out! 

2. Unexpected, unexplained absences - and who am I to talk? Especially after not blogging for a while!

Some of my favorites have taken a leave of absence and I miss them.  How dare you take time off from blogging?  We are like totally the best of blog friends and you left me hanging.  I didn't get to see what you wore for like three weeks and you didn't comment on my outfits for a while either!  Plus to be honest, I get worried that something happened.

3. The over-achieving over-participator.

There are SO many awesome things to be a part of in the blog world.  Slick and Sultry Saturday, The Every-Color-Of-The-Rainbow Crew, White Out, Black Out, Pants Off, Skirts Only, etc.  It gets a little hard to tell what a blogger is about when everyday is dedicated to someone else's project/cause/theme.  I've taken part in a few (Hello... FBFF, EBEW, 30 for 30) but I think occasionally my blogger friends need to remember to step back and come up with some original ideas.

4. Hug gramur misstaeks and speling arrors - I'm not elaborating on this one.  'Nuff said.


5. I'll follow you if you follow me - Major turn off!

This one just feels so needy and disingenuous.  I follow some bloggers who's style is nothing like mine what-so-ever.  I'll follow you if I'm interested in what you put together.  And I would expect the same in return - if you like what I've got going, then follow me.  I dig your style but that doesn't mean you need to bring a shovel to my party. 


  1. haha! Hilarious that the lace skirt in one of your peeves! I am guilty of owning it and wearing it often, but TOTALLY understand why you're sick of seeing it.

    Oh, and #5 - for realio!

  2. So speaking of spelling...
    Ingenious: clever, original, and inventive
    Ingenuous: candid; sincere
    Disingenuous: lacking in frankness, candor, or sincerity

    I read it as "ingenious" and was quite confused.

  3. "...and I'm am probably (definitely) guilty of most of them."

    OK I'll stop :)

  4. Jill - I think you look great in the skirt and I want you to keep remixing it as long as you like. I'm just bummed it didn't fit me the same.

    CK - Touché - Like I said, definitely guilty! Guilty of not rereading my late night post before publishing. You have a keen eye for editing and I had was sloppy all over!

  5. Uh oh. I may be somewhat guilty of a version of #5 in another of your posts. I'm new to this blogging and comment thing so didn't mean to step out of line. Was just excited to find some bloggers more like myself and was trying to be friendly. I welcome blogging etiquette tips. I'm learning the ropes as I go. :)


Drop me a line! I would love to hear what you think of The Clothed Commuter.
