Your Blog Might Suck

I don’t know about you but I’m ready for the weekend. But, since it’s only Tuesday I figured I would lighten things up a bit. This post is meant to be funny but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some good points in it as well.

I’m not sure why but Jeff Foxworthy’s “You Might Be A Redneck” routine always stuck with me. So, with a tip of the hat to the original, I’d like to present “Your Blog Might Suck”. Now before I get going I need to explain a few things. First and foremost, I probably have done or will do 75% of the things I’m about to talk about. I’m not proud, I’m just letting you know. Next, meeting one of these criteria doesn’t necessarily mean your blog sucks. Remember it’s “Your Blog Might Suck.” However, if you notice that this is a checklist of all the “features” of your blog, sorry, but your blog most certainly sucks. That brings me around nicely to my last point. Just because your blog sucks doesn’t make you a bad person. It just makes you a bad blogger. ;)

Now that we have that out of the way, here we go.

1. If your color scheme looks like a Disney character exploded….

2. If you RandOmly cAPItaliZE lettERs THROUghout YOur posts…

3. If my grandfather can take a trip the bathroom before your site loads…

4. If you’ve never met a widget or plugin you didn’t like…

5. If you have more ads than a Nascar race…

6. If you update once per presidential administration….

7. If you think punctuation is optional…

8. If your do-m-ai-n-na-me has more dashes than the Olympics…

9) If you spell like an illiterate 13 yo gril trieing 2 snd a txt msg…

10. If you tend to use big long run on sentences and never bother to break your content into paragraphs or format the text with headers or spaces or anything of the sort and would never dare to use a picture or two you know just something nice to look at thus resulting in a huge big long boring and bland block of text that could cure the worst case of insomnia just by having to look at it….

11. If your idea of “fair and balanced” is Fox News…

12. If your hosting company should be doing ads for Levitra…

13. And last but certainly not least, if you have to steal content ideas from Jeff Foxworthy…
