I've got you under my skin.....

Being that I am an ardent follower of several blogs, it seems that I spend most of my free time reading them. I've noticed several disturbing trends amongst the bloggers I follow and if they keep this crap up, I'll happily go back to feeding my eBay addiction.

Evidently, there is a Blogging 101 book out there that mandates the following:

Periods Galore
When making a point, insert a period after.
Every.Single.Word. This technique shows your readers that you throw sentence structure to the wind and just gives your blog an edgy feel - just like the hundreds of other bloggers that do it.

"I threw up in my mouth a little".
This phrase is "officially" dead. It was funny the first time I heard it. Now it's just.....stupid

"Loose" for "lose."
No explanation needed.

The choice of Malapropism lovers the world over!

Just Sayin'
Why has it become necessary for people to end every post with these two words?

I have a feeling they are the very same folks who sit near me in the movie theater and laugh through the whole fling-flangin' movie!

And my personal favorite,

Oh hell to the no!

Uh oh - I'm guilty of the first two!

Oops, I mean I'm guilty of two of them - the first and the last one

Ang, this is so funny and made me laugh. I am happy to report that I don't do any of the forementioned things that I know of. I have to agree with you tho, that crap goes on in these ever popular blogs we read.
I FINALLY played the game and it was fun. Had me going and thinking for quite some time. It is hard to talk about yourself. I want to thankyou for thinking of me and inviting me to play. I also wanted you to know that I am adding your blog to my list, I can't believe you are not there already, what was I thinking girlfriend!!?? Char
