5 Examples of a Bad Blog

Updated on October 12, 2009

Blogging

Blogging is something people do for fun. Some people even do it for some spare cash, possibly even for a living. I thought I would pick on some of those blogs that are very badly put together. I will criticize layout, colors, content, SEO (search engine optimization) and other small things. This should be a fun experience and should also help improve bloggers on other bloggers mistakes. Blogs that get mentioned in this article, sorry for picking on you, but maybe you can improve from this also.

Examples

1. There is nothing worse than someone that picks good a domain on blogger.com and never posts, not even once. This really makes other bloggers mad when they can't get the domain they want because of some person that had no intent of even writing in his blog takes it. This is an example of a bad blog.

Blog #1

2. A pointless blog is something that people won't read. Why waste your time reading something that you won't gain from. A blog that just has random stuff on it. A blog that has the worst colors put together. This blog will make you hate blogging ever again.

Blog #2

3. Apparently this is the worst SEO blog ever. It says so right in the title. Why would you name your blog something so idiotic. Are you trying to use reverse psychology? It really has horrible facts and how-to post on Search Engine Optimization.

Blog #3

4. What can i possibly say about this one. It was a waste of my time to read even one post on your blog. All you do is ramble on about what you think and you have no intelligence on the subject of matter. You cuss about a billion times and have no comments on your blog. It is safe to say this is a bad example of a blog.

Blog #4

5. This is a smart yet stupid way to get a lot of traffic to your blog. The URL is one of the longest found on the web.

      This is a subjective blog. You also need to make sure that your grammer is right.

      Ironically (or maybe not?), I'm drawing from this post to illustrate a badly written blog post. (For example, what do the first two sentences of this post have to do with the rest of the thing? And I love the disparity between the post title and the URL.)

      If you want criticism to stick, you need to back it up with some research. You know, facts and figures. You don't highlight five bad blogs, you highlight five blogs that you've found some reason to dislike. Whether there's any evidence to back up their objective "badness" isn't even considered.

      И не удивлюсь, если в 2013 году представят два iPad mini, обновленную модель с диагональю 7,9 дюйма и версию с еще меньшей диагональю, способную работать и как обычный телефон. Наконец, есть еще одна простая причина, банальное расширение ассортимента для устройств на базе iOS - больше устройств, больше новых пользователей. Естественно, среди покупателей будут и давно знакомые с миром яблока люди, но будут и те, кого зацепит именно mini.

      Number five was actually quite helpful I only realised after that they were actually links and it said a small description about each of the things, quite pointless though. Number one made me laugh about how many people commented and posted their own blogs on there. But hey, I understand!

      I find it ironic that this is a bad blog post condemning bad blog posts.

      I totally agree on number 1! I hate trying to get a good name and find out that it's been taken by some idiot that never posts ANYTHING!

      I'm sure most of them forgot the email and password for their blog and probably they don't even remember they started one after a few months... that should give someone else the right to use that same name after 90 days or so.

      Yeah, I agree. I saw blogs you are talking about. Haha. I found one that gets my eyes teary because of the background full of bright colors. I hope they would see what users see. What's the use of a blog if the topic is interesting but the background color is irritating.

      It amuses me that the writing in these blogs is 10 times better then anything I read on this page.

      I enjoyed the blogs from your list more than I did your post. So, thanks. I guess.

      Funny-I really wanted a blog domain name, but I couldn't get one because of someone using it and never postin anything. That really does bother me. I use numbers in my domain to help with SEO.
