Blogger Pet Peeves Linky Party



       I just found a great post at Mrs. Stanford's Class.  She posted about her blogger pet peeves including the word verifiers that you need to get through before you can post a comment on a blog.  I had no idea that my blog had a word verifier (I know I'm still pretty naive about this whole blogging thing).   What the Teacher Wants has a simple tutorial about how to get rid of the word verifier (go to settings, then comments, and then check no on "show word verification").
Mrs. Stanford is now having a Linky Party about blogger pet peeves.

       I agree with everyone who linked up, word verifiers are my biggest pet peeve.  Another pet peeve that I have is that some blogs have become nothing but advertisements for the author's Teachers Pay Teachers products.  I certainly have nothing against TpT. In fact I have been really happy with the things I have bought and understand that a blog is a great marketing tool.  That being said, there are blogs that I loved in the past because of all the great ideas that were shared that are now absolutely devoid of anything other than "advertisements" for their TpT products. I now tend to skip those blogs and go to the many that regularly share great ideas ... not just "freebies" but also descriptions of what is working in their classrooms.
