People who Don’t Follow Through in Facebook Groups
This goes back to my Facebook group rant. I love Facebook groups where people are helpful and awesome – they can make a real difference in your whole blogging life and experience. However, there are those people in groups who just don’t reciprocate! Despite warnings from all of the amazing group admins, they still don’t follow through. These people dump their links or their social media profiles expecting others to follow the guidelines that they can’t bother to follow themselves.
Going through the various threads takes a lot of time for everyone. If you’re going to join in – just follow through please!
This is a pretty major thing I hate about blogging – useless webinars that take up our time without offering any value. I know and understand you need to sell a product and I completely, 100% respect that, but please don’t advertise your webinar as one thing and then turn it only into a sales pitch.
Many of us are so busy – running around after kids, working full time and still trying to build our own businesses. If I’m going to sign up for a webinar it’s because I trust you and want to learn from you. Sure, I may buy a product in the long run but if all you do is sell (despite promising something else), I’m not going to trust you anymore.
In addition to the unhelpful nature of these “useless webinars”, some people send around 20 emails advertising these webinars. When I see 20 webinar emails, after reading the first and deciding whether or not I’m interested, I’m going to delete the rest. Again, it’s not that I don’t want to read your emails, but I don’t have time to read 20 emails about your webinar, even if I plan to attend.
On the other hand, there are some amazing and very successful bloggers/online entrepreneurs who provide so much amazing info without a sleezy sales pitch. You guys are fantastic, super helpful and greatly appreciated by the many bloggers out there (like myself) who are trying to bootstrap and find success online.
Unsubscribers are on my list of things I hate about blogging because they make me sad. I feel as though I put so much effort into gaining every subscriber I have and I want my subscribers to feel that they are learning something and getting helpful info from me. When someone unsubscribes it means that they aren’t learning and benefiting from my content. It’s never fun to think that people aren’t benefiting from your hard work.
If this is the case, then I have to work on making more useful content and look deeper into what my readers are interested in learning about (PS – please feel free to shoot me an email and let me know what you’re interested in reading about – nicole (@) theprofessionalmomproject.com)

I’m not talking about Justin Timberlake and his buddies from the Trolls movie. I’m talking about icky internet trolls that pick on people, write hateful comments and are completely unhelpful in Facebook groups.
Again, we’re all working hard trying to hustle and take care of everything. No one needs these mean and hurtful comments and attitudes.
Is there anything in particular that you hate about blogging? I’d love to know in the comments!
