there's a girl that i follow on twitter that you could kindly say bothers the heck out of me, she's not a blogger, but a local twitterer that i feel like i "have" to follow.
but if she annoys me, why do i torture myself with having to read her tweets?
i actually unfollowed her about a month ago cause i couldn't take it anymore. well she must have had Qwitter cause the next day she started following me. which of course made me feel bad so i started following her again.
apparently i'm a whimp.
now i've had this discussion with fellow bloggers about why we feel the need to read blogs and or follow people on twitter that we don't particularly care for.
do we follow them because everyone else likes them and we feel that we have to read them? is it because they get a lot of comments? or because we are all just so damn voyeuristic? i mean why do i keep coming back?
am i a masochist? or just a true social media junkie?
come on, you know you all have at least one person you don't particularly care for that you are following. that person that you maybe roll your eyes at the computer screen thinking, this dude/dudette just doesn't get it. that blogger that fires you up, or that blog whose only use is to make your google reader number go up when you always just end up marking them as read anyway.
please tell me i'm not the only one that experiences this - cause then i'll just feel like a jerk. but if you are like me, i going to tell you to do something for yourself that helped me from getting so bothered.
unsubscribe! don't click on their url! stop following them! even if it is just one.
fight the power.
it just better not be my blog.
[on a cleveland related note, i'm getting very excited for the blogger meet up tonight at bar cento! so many fabulous bloggers, that i don't "mark as read" to meet, yay! expect a full recap tomorrow]
