      In one month my bounce rate was 79% because of the serial likers! I was so irritated and have stopped responding to such… My logic is ~ if you don’t want to read my content, don’t – simple! πŸ™„πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

    All of the above are annoying. Especially the copy cats, for obvious reasons.

    I feel like we are all guilty of being these types of bloggers at some point. When you first start blogging you don’t realise that there are these unspoken rules that you have to follow. But we learn from our mistakes!

    • Shelly DS says

      Lol yes… the copy cats are definitely a work of art. Not sure I’ve ever put that hat on, but if I have, check me please! So annoying!

  2. Michelle (Boomer Eco Crusader) says

    Yes, I thnk I have seen all of these at some point. The ones that get me are the bloggers who don’t respond to comments. It’s always annoying when you put together a thoughtful and carefully worded comment and get nothing in return.

      • Michelle (Boomer Eco Crusader) says

        Definitely not you! I especially dislike when someone posts about something controversial that you know is designed to get a response. Then, when I write a carefully-thought-out response, I get nothing.

    there are all kinds out there, just like in the face to face world. I’ve learned to take them in stride and even laugh about it. I know it’s them, not me )

  4. Mamalava says

    Lol- thanks for the perspective! I’m still so new that I haven’t encountered any of these yet. I feel I should take a deep breath and appreciate the irritation I haven’t felt ;). And once again, as my β€œbig sis” in the blogging world, you’re helping to prepare me for my future and I’m grateful!

    • Shelly DS says

      Hahaha that’s one way to look at it – the irritation you haven’t felt πŸ˜‰ Awww I’m really glad you feel that way. I really enjoy your content so I read and comment πŸ˜‰ We should do a collaboration soon!

      • Shelly DS says

        You’re super cute!!! It means I write a post for your blog and you do one for mine and we post them on the same day. So basically my followers can be exposed to your content and follow you if they love it and vice versa πŸ˜‰

      • Mamalava says

        Another thing I am going to learn from you… DM? I didn’t know we could do that! Haha! Oh boy… thanks for letting me watch and follow you!

  5. Suzanne- Happily Decluttered says

    I have seen examples of all the blogger types that you have described. It is difficult for me to understand why some people would waste time doing some of those things. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ I try my best to be a supportive blogger. Treat others the way you want to be treated, right?β˜€οΈπŸ˜„

    • Shelly DS says

      Oh gosh Suzanne already?! … and you are so fresh in your blogging journey! The logic is simple – get attention and grow your own blog. Hopefully, you are able to spot this from a mile away and not fall prey πŸ˜‰

  6. Happy Panda says

    The Ghoster is the worst because then you’re stuck wondering whether you should unfollow them or whut? πŸ™ˆ

    The toxic blogger – what? I’ve never come across one, thankfully! I’m pretty sure I do comment with opposing thoughts when I don’t agree with something – I hope you don’t mean meee. πŸ™ˆ

    • Shelly DS says

      Lol you have a big heart! I don’t think that far ahead… 🀣

      As for the toxic blogger, trust me, it’s a thing πŸ˜… But you are one of my biggest supporters <3

  7. imifarm says

    I’ve had plenty of serial likers and ghosties but haven’t reached the dizzying heights of toxic bloggers yet … something to look forward to 🀣
    What about the bloggers you follow who drop off and never post anything again. Theres been a few of those and I’m never sure when is best to unfollow, holding out hope that they will come back

    • Shelly DS says

      LOL brace yourself… it can be rough!

      Ahhh yes the Houdinis!! Let’s call them the toe-dippers πŸ˜… I know a few of them that I really wish would come back to blogging!

  8. vaniheart says

    I don’t entertain serial likers anymore , chances are I won’t even visit their site πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’ thanks for increasing my stats love, I wish I could do the same to you but I won’tπŸ˜›πŸ˜›πŸ˜›πŸ˜›
    And about “the ghosters” nearly 70% of my followers list comprise of them πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… and I don’t think they are in a mood of rebounding anytime soon

    • Shelly DS says

      Oh gosh do I love you!!!! I legit have started doing the same! And now I actually wait for a bit before following back because I don’t want to invest in a site that I’m not 100% in love with if the person is just trying to get me to follow them and will ghost me shortly after I followπŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ
      Lol as for the serial likers, I used to love it but now it annoys the hell out of me. It’s like joining a group so people can just increase your views… none of it is real so why bother?

  9. Shandean | Millennial Wife + Mom says

    Welp! I’m a potentially (definitely) a serial liker! 😩 πŸ˜‚I don’t mean anything by it. I follow a lot of bloggers myself and as you mentioned, keeping up can be difficult. So when I miss a few post on my favorites, l’ll go over and like the ones I missed. And settle in to read the more interesting topics afterwards. Guess I should pay more attention to that.

    • Shelly DS says

      Lol I know you mean no harm but think about it this way… if I write about 4 different topics in an attempt to see which direction my blog should go, then you go and like all 4~ I’ll assume you actually like them all and will continue to provide more of the boring content. I never noticed you were a serial liker though 🀣🀣🀣 cat’s out the bag now!

  10. Suzanne says

    The most annoying thing I am dealing with lately is the spam followers!!! Drives me crazy and gives me a wild misperception of my reach. I went through a while back and deleted a TON of spam accounts and they come right back! What is the point?!?!

    • Shelly DS says

      LOL you actually deleted them? You seriously have patience! I don’t think I’ve ever cleaned out my followers … I just let them get tired of my content and unfollow themselves πŸ˜‚

  11. Bosssybabe says

    At first I read serial killers LOL I was very concerned lol but turns out it was serial likers lol… I agree with some of the comments, I think when we’re starting out we don’t realize there’s a fine etiquette to this blogging thing… But it is truly a give and take relationship… I look at it as an investment… I hate feeling like I’m wasting time so I do end up following someone it’s because I really enjoy their content and hope they’ll enjoy mine!

    • Shelly DS says

      Serial killers? Oh gosh hun what on earth is on your mind lately? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ if at all you find any of those… delete your account and run!
      You’re spot on about the give and take! I learned that early on and really try to stick with it. It gets harder as you follow more people and still try to do β€œlife” but you really can’t stop. Your approach is best! Follow if you like the content… I wish I learned that earlier on!

  12. Cindy Georgakas says

    Shelly, not sure how I missed this but it is priceless. So much to say so little time. How about the spamming bogger but maybe that’s the first one described. drives me crazy cra. Yeah and the ones that you think are your BFF but then they never show up and then go looking for new likes for a bigger following and are gone. It’s just weird. Here’s my trouble, I’m a loyal follower butcause if I like you, I like you and I want to support you and I will go to great lengths to return the support. I will also follow you if you follow me most of the time after I’ve checked you are content worthy and worth my time. Time is precious and few with a bigger following so I do wish I had a photographic brain and a robot cuz I can’t get to them all. And there;;s taking to long to respond like now cuz I value you and you’re my BFF but i gotta work. … lol. Great post girl! jπŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’–

    • Shelly DS says

      Oh gosh this must be the biggest rant I’ve ever seen from you πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ was this post that triggering hun? πŸ˜›πŸ˜›πŸ˜›
      You are definitely in the β€œsupportive bloggers” category and I truly appreciate you πŸ’–

      • Cindy Georgakas says

        I know right? 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣
        Oh often think of a sequel to my blogging pet peeves but never time. I’m still trying to figure it all our. lol. Good to know and you mine!πŸ’–πŸŒ·πŸŒ·πŸŒˆ

  13. Zandra L. says

    what about the copycats? πŸ˜… The one who use to copy others’ work and pretend it to be theirs? πŸ™ˆ There are so many bloggers out there who don’t want to create a work of their own. Though, reblogging your post has an approval first, still I find it insane! It’s okay to reblog, but if all your shared post isn’t your post, then I guess you shouldn’t do blogging, anyway. πŸ˜… Though, they gave credit to the real owners, I just find it toxic to read all articles which are not originally theirs. At least if you reblog, then try to share whatever you had in mind. Don’t just reblog. And as for the copycats, you will forever never be happy ’cause you had been admired greatly by something you are not. ✌️

  14. believableshe83 says

    Oh no… I am a new blogger and am hoping to build some follows and relationships, but sincerely hope that I never fall into these groups. Something to keep in mind for sure 🌺

  15. Shahrin says

    I love the way you described themπŸ˜‚
    You need to write more about β€œserial likes” β€”I am very much looking forward to it. xx

  16. Jane Tawel says

    Shelley — This is very clever and good. Quite interesting and I can relate to most of them. I do like the “community of bloggers” over all that I have encountered. Not taking any of the above blogger -types too seriously or too much to heart is hard sometimes — much as it used to be when we had real face to face friends — hahaha. Good thinking on this one.

  17. telugubloggersreenadh says

    I m a new blogger here,
    So how can I get traffic in my site.
    Support me friends

    • Shelly DS says

      Hi there! There are many ways, but the first definitely starts with creating quality content and making your blog presentable, then promoting it on the social platform of your choice. Many people like Pinterest, but you can also promote it on Twitter and Instagram… and you need to support other bloggers too… it’s a two way street πŸ˜‰

  18. telugubloggersreenadh says

    I need only genuine friends.
    In my site.
    And keep support.
    I will always help u friends

      • thegriefreality says

        I reckon I’m probably many different types to many different bloggers! I find it hard to engage with every single blogger I follow, so sometimes might read their posts in one go and seem like the serial liker! Sometimes it’s hard to find the time to engage with every post as well!
        So I’m the blogger who tries their best πŸ˜‚ xx


I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
