Now, onto my thoughts...
*I thought I could do an "After the jump" thingy, but I keep failing..so...skip the next lengthy section if you don't care...OK THANKS love you all dolls :)*
Today Landa, from Bright Lights, Big Colour posted a compiled Pet Peeve post, with her pet peeves and then other nail bloggers and OMG people..wtf?! Some drama was caused man and it was SO stupid and unnecessary...like just ridiculous. The biggest thing that annoyed me was all the people who were commenting "I don't understand why people don't like link spammers, how is a new blog supposed to get themselves out there?" OK hold on a-fucking-second. I'm gonna say, as a new blogger..when you go to a blog and you go to comment and in their comments it says "I don't appreciate link spamming, please don't, but feel free to email me if you want me to check out your blog/put you on my blogroll", you then take that as.."oh but I'm new that doesn't apply to me?" HOW THE FUCK don't you see that as getting on that blogger's nerves/their pet peeve? WTF. I am a new blog, and it takes a while to get out there, I love ALLLLL my followers and appreciate you all following me, but I don't expect to jump to 200 in a few months. It takes hard work people, I understand that. So everyone else that is new and doesn't understand how doing something a blogger has asked you not to and don't understand why they are pissed off/delete's your comment, then you shouldn't blog. That is MY opinion, and if you don't like it...then whatever, but you should be able to understand why it would be a pet peeve.
The other one is all the people whining about how as bloggers, if we see someone with ugly nails/terrible paint job, then we just shouldn't look, and well, I don't. I unfollowed about 6 blogs because, even though they had cool nail art and nice colours, they had TERRIBLE nails and terrible paint jobs. I know some people grow out their nails from acrylics/shit and sometimes you just let them grow and get strong before you file and shape etc, so ok..but I, and many other people, don't want to see your nails if they look like your 5 year old painted them. Paint on the skin around the nail, and even on the cuticles looks dirty, and messy, and like you don't care how they look. I feel that you don't really care about blogging if you do a slap dash job, and throw 'er up as a post. It is not that hard to fix some of it, even if you don't have pure acetone, nail polish remover REMOVES nail polish, aka it will take it off your cuticles. Use a q-tip if you don't have an eyeliner brush. Basically, all I'm saying is try. Maybe I sound stuck up or bitchy, or like clique-y, that there are rules to blogging..but whatever. I don't think these are rules, but I think they are guidelines, or things to think about, especially for your followers, and for yourself, if nothing else.
I know a lot of people complained that there is no handbook for new bloggers, and YO people, I'm new, I get it..but look at a whole bunch of blogs, see what they do, look at their pics, ask them..it's not hard if you look around. I'm sorry if you all hate me after this but I felt the need to say something cause Landa got shit for it..and well she is amazing and i felt that people needed to realize that. I LOVE you all, and if you read all this then I love you more and you get a virtual hug and a cookie!
AND...back to regularly posted nails, aka what you want, not my ranting thoughts.
