For the record, I'm not unsubscribing from anyone's blog myself, so you don't have to get your knickers in a knot over that. Also, I am not an expert pro-blogger, either, so really, who am I to give you these friendly, light-hearted blog tips?!
#01. Your posts are too long. Fashion blogs are like kids books: the more pictures, the better. I can read and I enjoy doing so, but if I wanted to read a novel, I'd go to Barnes & Noble. So please, don't make me read paragraph after paragraph (after paragraph) of text. I'm a wordy person, so I know it's hard, but trust me--you do not need to write a 5 page, single-spaced essay every time you blog. Also: don't post 10+ pictures of your outfit in every post. I've seen it from the right side, so chances are, it's going to look the same from the left side, too. Please don't overdo it--it's a waste of bandwidth.
#02. Your posts are too frequent. Post once a day? Sweet! I wish I had the time to do that. Post five times a day? I mean this in the nicest way possible: find yourself a life ASAP. If you have all this time on your hands and really want to put it toward your blog, then use it to expand it qualitatively. Network. Or, maybe consider guest posting (yes, folks, that was a shameless plug. Oh snap!).
#03. You're MIA. I understand that life gets in the way some times. But, nine times out of ten, there's no reason you couldn't give us a head's up as to what's going on. An announced hiatus is totally acceptable: I'll bid you adieu for now and welcome you back when you return. But if you disappear out of the blue for three months, I'm going to assume you lost interest and won't be coming back. Ever.
#04. You lost yourself along the way. I get it: you're a fancy, popular fashion blogger, and now you've got all these companies who want to sponsor you. But when the the majority of your content is paid content, you tend to lose your own style, and with it goes the reason I liked your blog in the first place. Be original and be yourself!
#05. I literally cannot view your blog anymore. This happened to me recently: I kept trying to visit a blog, but the author had added that falling snowflake script to her site. The script basically froze my computer, so, needless to say, I wasn't able to even read the blog. Keep your layout simple and let your content do the talking.
#06. There's no option to comment. I like to talk. If you post an entry on your blog, chances are, I'm going to want to talk about it. When you take the comment option away from me, you've taken my fun along with it.
#07. You don't acknowledge me. If I comment and ask you a question, it would be nice if you answered it. Interacting with your visitors is key for building a strong readership...if you don't, it looks like you just don't care. So why should I care about your blog?
#08. You complain about people unsubscribing from your blog. If you ain't got nothin' more important to blog about than, "I lost a follower on my blog today, woe is me!" Imma take a wild guess here and say that your blog must be pretty uninteresting already.
#09. You asked me to follow you, I did, and since then, you've asked me to follow you three more times. I even left a comment saying I followed you. What gives? Oh, and in case you haven't noticed, asking someone to follow you usually makes them want to do the opposite. So don't do it. And certainly don't do it like this girl.
#10. You tell me! What causes you to unsubscribe from someone's blog?
