Today, I am going to let you in on a blogging pet peeve of mine. Now I don’t claim to be any sort of blogging expert, but I read a fair amount of them and run this lovely one you are reading right now. So, I have begun to develop some frustrations, annoyances if you will. But none bother me worse than this one, so I am going to make a suggestion for you bloggers that I find helps make the whole blog reading experience much more enjoyable (well for me anyway, and really who else do you need to please?).
When you link to something, like another blog, your own blog posts or an outside website, link so that it opens in a separate page. I don’t know why I find this so lovely, but I guess it is just too much work to have to use the back arrow trying to get back to whatever you were previously reading. Here is the bad news, I have no idea how to do this except on wordpress. Here, you just hyperlink to whatever you want and then choose, “open in a new window”. So uncomplicated, yet so not always done. Blogger and Typepad users, feel free to leave a comment telling others how to do this on your platform.
Also, just for fun, I would love it if you left a comment saying what your biggest bloggy pet peeve is. Unless it is bad spelling and grammar. I know mine is less than stellar. I needs me a editer 🙂
