Grumpy Old Bloggers

As an unashamed rip off of Grumpy Old Men, following are the top 10 signs you're becoming a Grumpy Old Blogger when you:
  1. Feel like calling everyone who leaves a comment on your blog an idiot.
  2. Diss bloggers starting off for their immature and uninformed points of view.
  3. B1tch about dropping AdWords revenue or its changing policies.
  4. Whinge that people continuously don't appreciate your point of view.
  5. Complain about people are not using your blog like you want them to.
  6. Whine about needing to change the blog look and feel yet again.
  7. Track people down on their blog and leave comments that they're idiots.
  8. Fail to believe and support people in having different points of view to you.
  9. Think blogging has gone rapidly down hill since the good ol' days (2 years ago).
  10. Expunge anybody with any hint that they've joined your exclusive brethren.
I must admit I'm definitely guilty of some of these and I've only been blogging for a year. Time to sit back, chill out and restock on life's priorities I guess.

Of course one of the reasons why the blogosphere was so much better in the old days was because there were fewer people blogging.

Feel free to call me an idiot ;)

Cheers, APC

I'll definitely raise a glass to that!

I always like to remember that you aren't always what you read.

That reminds me of a quote: "Some people are just a victim of the last person they talked to"
