3rd Blogoversary Day 6 - Cringe-worthy Posts

First, I would like to start by saying that though I've been having difficulties with Blogger not posting scheduled posts probably helps if I don't accidentally schedule them for dates in July instead of June. Yeah...that would definitely help. So now a whole bunch of posts are going to show up since I fixed the dates now. I've also decided to extend the giveaway for another week due to the mess-up (though I won't be doing more posts about the blogoversary most likely). Anyways, now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Since it’s Monday (and not going so well for me already), I decided to share a little something that’ll hopefully cheer you up (or at least make you laugh). So if you have a bad day, just remember…we’ve all been there. Part of taking a walk down memory lane means admiring the good, the bad, and the ugly. So, for your enjoyment today, I present my (IMHO) most cringe-worthy posts formatting/design wise.

Hart Attack Tour So many different fonts, sizes, and coloring! I still have no idea how I ended up getting the white background on certain parts but not on others, even when I tried to remove them all.  Blogger was not working with me on this day.

Laura & the City of Angels Interview Another post for the same author…I feel like I should write her an apology for this…in my defense, this was me in my very early days as a blogger. In retrospect, most of my early blog tour posts weren't very great formatting wise, but these two stuck out the most to me.

Oh, and my 3 year long struggle to figure out what color my writing should be when I need to differentiate who’s “speaking”? Is it blue? Green? Pink? How about purple? Do I even need to differentiate colors? I’ve gotten better about sticking to just blue or red now (mainly blue). But darn. I just realized that the first three colors I listed were all on different posts about the same book series. *facepalm* Well, I am a rainbow supporter, so I guess that’s a good excuse for my abundance of choices (though really, I’m just indecisive at times and like all the pretty colors, but let’s just keep that between you and me).

Though at least I’ve pretty much gotten past choosing impossible to read colors for no apparent reason (at least, not one that I can remember). But I do still stick by my Christmas themed color scheme.

Oo, oo! Here’s a personal favorite of mine…forgetting to make sure the photo is facing the right way. 99.99% of the time I caught it…this just happened to be the .01%.

There are plenty more I’m sure I could go on about, but these are just the top 3 cringe-worthy-offenses that stuck out to me. So in conclusion, I hope this helped cheer you up a little and made your Monday a little more bearable. After all, laughter is the best medicine.

  1. Mistakes happen. At least you caught it, if it had been me the posts might not have made it those scheduled July days =p

  2. Mistakes do indeed happen and those are the posts you remember.

  3. So much to learn in running a blog, and which you can smile & laugh at the mistakes, but feel really good when things come together.
