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.

Interwebz/Interwebs/Interwibble
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?

Hyperactive
LOL'rs!
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!

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
