I’m tired and cranky and really really missing my husband.? I kind a like the big guy and when he’s gone the bed is kind a lonely.? The boy and I have also done way too much staring at each other the last 3 days and it’s getting to both of us*.
This evening I’m going to throw out a few internet related things that irritate the snot out of me.? We’ve already discussed driving habits and what my child does to make my eye twitch, but the following are sure fire things to ensure I never read your blog again.
1) Music.? This is the single most irritating thing you can put on a website.? Especially that sneaky ass music that doesn’t start playing until you scroll down and the player appears on the screen.? That’s just not nice.? And have you noticed that 9 times out of 10 it is Jesus music?? Not that I have anything against Jesus or his brand of music, but conservative Christian pop is just not my bag.
I will admit to having put music on my site, but it only played if you clicked on the player.? That way you had a choice.? I could do it back to you and put up my favorite music, but then you’d know I listen to crap like Eminem and Kanye West.? And we just don’t need that.
2)Flashy shit.? First of all let me start by saying that thank god those damn glitter signatures are gone from message boards… oh wait… I just don’t read message boards anymore.? Either way they were annoying.? Scrolling headers, banners, or flashing things irritate the snot out of me.? I don’t need to go to a website and have a seizure.
3)Low resolution headers.? For the love of pete people if you are going to make your own header learn something about resolution and file size.? There is nothing worse than a fuzzy masthead.
Unless it’s a site with a fuzzy masthead, with a flashy ad and Jesus music all rolled into one.? And oh yes… I’ve seen that.
So tell me, what irritates you most with websites?? And let’s not go to content.? Because frankly if you don’t like the content, you don’t have to read the site.
*If you are wondering who had the “I miss Daddy meltdown first… that would be me.
