412. What Grinds My Gears Meme.

The lovely Ashleigh tagged me in this "What Grinds My Gears Meme", and while I don't like to be too negative on this blog there are a couple of things about blogging specifically that frustrate me.

The Rules
Simply link back to the meme creator which is Mummy of Many Talents and the person who tagged you.

01. Word Verification/CAPCHE on comments. This is the actual bane of my life, and there's a definite possibility I won't even comment on your blog if you have this. Or, similarly, a different commenting system where I have to type in my name/e-mail/website every.single.time. I'm just too lazy you guys! But back to the word verification, it's such an unnecessary waste of time! I must be a robot or something, because I get the words wrong every time. And then I get frustrated, and sad. And if I get it wrong again, I'll most likely give up, which is sad too. The wonderful Kylie published a post just yesterday about turning off this irritating step, please please check it out!!

02. Getting lovely comments, trying to reply and getting noreply@blogger.com in the address bar. It's like a kick in the teeth. I'm, admit-ably, awful at replying to comments, but I am much more likely to do it via e-mail, so it makes me sad when you lovelies don't have your e-mail address linked to your blogger account.

Rant over. I'll leave you with some ridiculously cute pictures to cheer you up, okay?

I took some pictures of both my boys when I took Joshua's 4 month pictures. I had a great image in my mind, but of course they didn't quite turn out. I thought I'd share them anyway, because they both look pretty cute in one or another! Maybe we'll try again another time!






Lots of Love

  1. Haa! completely agree re. comments, I regularly type out messages only to lose them whilst trying to verify!

  2. I totally agree on the word verification. I always feel so dumb when I get them wrong :) Have to admit, it took me too long to realize that I hadn't linked an email to my blogger account. I figured since I got email notifications about blog comments I was good to go. Oops!

    1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one!! To be honest, I'm not sure how I worked it out!!

  3. I think there are some very cute and real photos there, I love the expressions in both little bunnies in pic 3 :)
    I absolutely agree on word verification! I even wrote a post about myself this week LOL

    1. Thankyou! I linked you haha, it drives me so crazy too!

  4. I am a robot too and a frustrated one that can't handle typing in a word that they make way to blurry to ever read!!! end rant
