Ya see that guy in the picture above this post?
That is exactly what I look like right now.
Yup! I am cranky so you might as well grab a cup of coffee and prepare to laugh at me while I rant about my biggest online pet peeve – the one thing that drives me crazy.
There are plenty of things to rant about but this one is like fingernails on a chalk board for me. (Do people still remember that sound?) It seriously sends me over the edge.
Ya ready for this one?
Articles or blog posts that are broken up into multiple pages literally drive me insane.
It used to be that they were just broken up into 2-3 pages (which still aggravated me) but now if you see an article discussing the top 10 of just about any topic you will find it broken in 10 pages!
ARE THEY NUTS?
Do they really think they will benefit by showing me 10 times as many ads?
For me, I don’t care how badly I want to read about the topic. By the time you make me click “next” for the 3rd time the only thing you have accomplished is me leaving your site and reminding myself not to return.
I cannot be the ONLY person that feels this way. Am I? Maybe they should check their stats to see how many visitors abandon their site right in the middle of an article.
Seriously, if you are a blogger. DON’T DO THIS!
I feel much better now.
I think I will grab another cup of coffee. (grin)
So tell me. What are your biggest online pet peeves?
