Relatable and Not-So-Relatable Rants

Things that personally just get on my nerves and I thought I should share, more the less I needed somewhere to get my anger out before I blow up. Hope you can relate, because right now I feel like I'm the only one who's bugged by these things


41. Comments. Ugh.

The most ironic thing happened today. 

This is a book of rants.


If you actually read this, you must know that promoting yourself on this particular book will tickle a nerve of mine, right?

I understand if somebody wants me to check out one of their stories, I do. But if I've never seen them before, they never commented on any of my stories and probably haven't even read them, why should I check them out?

I mean, if you're a regular comment-er on my stories I will check you out regardless of whether you ask me or not. But if you want me to critique or even just look at it, then don't just ask. If you want ME, because for some reason my opinion matter to you, then all you have to do is leave comments on my stories that say more than just 'update'. 

But promoting yourself on someone else's work is rude. Even if you aren't necessarily promoting, and just asking the author to check you out, it is technically promoting. Unless the author says it's okay, don't do it. Even if they don't specify, don't do it. Only if they straight-out say they don't care. 

I'm not trying to be a bitch, either. I'm just saying that it isn't right. I guarantee that they don't mean to promote it to everyone that reads this, that maybe they just want ME to read it, but if they really wanted me to read it they must be a fan of mine. If someone were a fan of mine, they'd actually read my stories and shit. But hey, you never know. They could be an obnoxious silent reader.
