Blogging confessions: Sneaky things all bloggers have done hoping no one would notice

In the past, I’ve been known to expose myself quite frequently.

Especially when it came to book blogging habits. (I just love to hop into graves I created myself, apparently.)

And well, would you look at me now! Again! Exposing! Myself!

Why do I do this to myself

But it’s okay, because I’m dragging you all down with me!! Unless this list does not apply to you, in which case a) You’re making my title a lie, excuse me, I DO NOT LIE. and b) Are you sure you’re not lying???? *side eye*

1. Saying you’ll read a book someone recommends and coincidentally neverย mentioningย it ever again

HAHAHA.

Ha.

Well. You see. In my defence, I don’t intentionally NOT read a book I get recommended! I just… forget!

I AM A GOLDFISH and I literally won’t remember anything past 2 days, okay. (Yes, exams were difficult.) It doesn’t mean I didn’t like your recommendation or something!!

I just.. consistently forget?

*Tiny whispers* Though sometimes I’m just not actually interested in the book but I feel too guilty to say that when someone loved it so much ……. *hides*

2. Stalking previous comments in a non-stalkerish way

If you say you’ve never stalked comments on someone else’s post, I’m 99% sure YOU ARE LYING.

Generally no one will know (or care) if you stalk the comments! That’s okay! It’s just entertaining to see what other people thought on a topic, and maybe they offer some useful information as well?

BUT THEN.

It’s when you accidentally press “like” one someone else’s comment while stalking the comments without having commented yourself and then you’re exposed as a somewhat stalker??? WHAT WILL PEOPLE THINK.

nothing

You’re sneaky and all clever as you go giggling* through the other comments UNTIL IT’S NOT.

*Okay hopefully that’s not what you’re doing because that’s kind of creepy but hey, this is a mostly judge-free zone.

3. Editing a comment we wrote on our blog or deleting it completely

I don’t think I’ve ever deleted any of my own or anyone else’s comments? I haven’t edited anyone’s comments either (can you do that?) but I’m going to sheepishly confess I’ve totally edited my own comment before.

It’s not anything bad, I swear!! And I don’t change the general idea of what I wrote originally, so I’m not deceiving anyone! ๐Ÿ˜‚ย I just… typos are frustrating okay??? And sometimes I want to add onto what I said originally and so I go back and add it?

DOES THIS MAKE ME A DECEITFUL PERSON????

(Please don’t answer that)

(I don’t think it does?? If it makes you feel better, I do it 0.0008% of the time anyway, which is to say I hardly do.)

My question is, does the person who I’m replying to notice if I changed my comment? Like, will they still receive the original comment? Probably, right?

Oh darnit people have witnessed my non-sneaky sneakiness

4. Not fully reading a blog post (and accidentally writing a comment that shows utter ignorance)

Ahahahโ€ฆ. oops.

I… don’t always read full blog posts? I feel kind of guilty for admitting that, but I would totally understand if people didn’t read myย full posts (especially when they’re long as heck), and I’m already exposing myself so why not!

I do try to read full posts as much as I can, though!! I don’t intentionally decide, oh, hey, I’m not going to read the full post of so-and-so for so-and-so reason, because usually it’s completely arbitrary and up to my mood and how much time I have. ๐Ÿ˜…

Generally people won’t be able to tell? (If you don’t read my full post, I generally won’t know?)

YET. One time.

Oh god, I still cringe.

I feel so guilty!! This hasnโ€™t happened to me recently, this was like in 2015? Somehow, I read-skimmed a post about a book, okay. Normal things. And then I go to comment, because it was a good post and everything, and then I comment about a WHOLLY DIFFERENT BOOK.

The sad thing is, the titles werenโ€™t even remotely alike, apart from the fact they both had โ€œAll theโ€ .

HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN.

Oh yes, because I am an absolute IDIOT.

(My memory strangely remembers this so well?? Iโ€™m scarred for life, apparently.)

5. Post something, delete it, and then post it again at another time or dateย 

HAHAHA okay Iโ€™m going to confess Iโ€™ve totally done this before. If youโ€™re one of the people whoโ€™ve noticed the same post of mine come up twice, wellโ€ฆ now you know.

But to be fair, one time it was because my scheduling thing didnโ€™t post it on time and posted it super late, and hardly anyone saw it?? (Obviously you guys were deprived of a masterpiece*)

So I sneakily just deleted it and posted it the next day at a regular time, and, well, I actually had people reading it? Sooooo I donโ€™t see the downside of this other than it seems kind of suspiciousโ€ฆ sorry???

Also there was that time I accidentally posted a draft without realizing… Sigh. And people wonder why I’m paranoid, geez.

*Hahahah. WP was probably trying to tell me something yikes. ๐Ÿ‘€

6. Unfollowing a blogย 

I donโ€™t actually unfollow blogs often, because Iโ€™m wayyyyy too lazy to go through my 100+ blogs followed list to unfollow people, and I just donโ€™t see the worth in spending my time on that tbh.

But the times I did, I swear youโ€™d think I was comittting some sort of crime????

(I’M NOT, JUST TO BE CLEAR.)

It’s this super stealthy affair of me deciding how long it’s been since they posted and sneakily pressing that unfollow button and having the wrath of the bloggers come down on me and–

Yeah, no, not really. I just press unfollow. But I do hope they don’t notice??ย 

8. Reading multiple posts from a blog without commenting/Liking posts without reading them.

Honestly, there’s not really a way for the blogger to know if you’ve been reading the post at all so it’s pretty easy for bloggers to get away with liking posts without having read them? Or reading without commenting?

But I mean… I don’t think anyone goes into a blog post thinking to themselves, “hehehe I’m going to be super sneaky and not actually read their posts or comment” because UM???? What the heck, pal. Why would you even. It’s fine to not comment or read a post, but don’t actively plan not to? ๐Ÿ˜‚

I totally get howย sometimes you’re just not in theย moodย to comment or read so you may just like it and leave! And it’s okayyyy! It’s not a super bad thing!

I’m just paranoid and feel bad afterwards in case the blogger is secretly wondering why I didn’t comment on their posts??

I don’t think like this so I have no freaking clue why I keep imagining other bloggers doing so?? MY MIND IS JUST… ODD, someone save me from it.

9. Deleted old posts because they were trash in need of being hidden away from the world for protection

Hahahah, okay I can hardly look at my old posts?? I haven’t deleted a lot of them, but I low-key really want to do that ๐Ÿ˜‚ย I’ve totally had posts I deleted though before, though I can’t really remember why??

They were probably just reaaalllly bad posts and well, GOOD RIDDANCE.

See: there are two types of bloggers: one, is the type who just started blogging either knowing what they were doing, or didn’t know but seemed like they did. This type, have pretty decent posts.

And then there’s the other type: the one who did not know what they were doing and seemed like they didn’t know what they were doing! That’s me!

My posts weren’t all BAD*, but… I didn’t enjoy writing them as much as I enjoy writing my posts now? I did sooooo many memes, and wow, was it a mess.

So delete they go!! And no one notices either, which is ultimately perfect.

SEE, I’M VERY SNEAKY.

I would make a wonderful spy.

*Hahahahahahhahahahha I’m so funny

(Yes, for the extra perceptive people, I cheated and skipped #7 .. ending on 8 is just such an ugly thing, okay, I can’t just end on 8 things???? STOP EXPOSING ME)

What are some of your blogging confessions??? Have you done anything here? Do you ever like posts without reading them? Have you ever edited or deleted one of your own comments? EXPOSE YOURSELF WITH ME.

I hope your Friday is amazing and you’re doing well!!ย โค

  1. You have great ideas for blog posts. I have to say I haven’t deleted or edited any comments. But I do love to read other people’s comments on blog posts, especially the discussion ones. I occasionally find my finger hovering over the like button quite a lot!
    For your number one point of reading recommended books, there are just so many. I’m sure if I could, I would, there are just too many! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Everything about this post had me giggling lol! I recently had thoughts on #9 smh specifically cause I requested a arc from a publisher for a sequel. The “issue” is that I read the first book around the time I started my blog & yeah nooooo….not my best work in a review lol smh. I seriously had to stop myself from deleting it convincing myself that a review is better than no review Baha!!!

  4. I’ve done so so many of thsese flaws. And the worst part is, sometimes I’m not even sorry about it. Especially number 1. I never know whether I should delete my first few posts becuase they were trash or not. I probably still won’t do it but now I won’t feel terribly about it (or maybe I wouldn’t bc I don’t feel terribly about any other blogging sins that I’ve commited).

There’s just so many of them. ๐Ÿ˜… I’ve totally wanted to, but I just settle for never ever looking at them and hoping no one ever sees them? I don’t do it simply because then I would have to see them and end up reading them, which I want to avoid. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. Yeah, I have so many books on my TBR list that when I say “I’ll look into that!” I generally mean it sincerely, but I also might be reading it 5 years from now, so no should get their hopes up. :p

    I find it weirder when people don’t read the other comments on a post, actually. I see them as more of a discussion the whole community can participate in. I’ve actually replied to comments on other people’s posts, and I get that other people might find that weird, but I just want to chat with other readers! Also, I try to skim the other comments on discussions so I don’t comment the exact same thing 10 other people did.

    The “people commenting who haven’t read the post” is kind of a pet peeve of my co-blogger and me. I get that people are busy and might skim, but it’s actually fairly common for us to get comments to the effect of “I totally agree with X!” when whatever we wrote in the post was the exact opposite of X… It’s also awkward on your end, as the blogger, because what do you do? Ignore the comment? Reply “Well actually I didn’t say X at all”??? I don’t know how to reply/not reply in a way that doesn’t sound rude.

    • Same here!! I always mean to actually check out the book, but I also will probably read it a long time from now. ๐Ÿ˜‚

      Very true! It’s a great way to find different perspectives and talk to other people about the same topic. Oh yes, same here! It’s very useful to see what other people wrote so that I don’t end up repeating what they said haha.

      Ohh yes, I totally get what you mean! Those comments are kind of difficult haha. I think even if you skim, you should try and leave a comment that’s related to the post? (I mean, barring that one horrid mistake of mine, that’s generally what I try to do.) It is totally awkward when that happens! What are we supposed to do? I wouldn’t want to come off as being rude or super offended when that’s really not what I’m trying to express ahah.

  6. I didn’t know you could edit comments so thank you for that useful tip, not that I would ever do it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    My worst habit is hitting that like button without reading the actual post. I’m way sneakier (or more paranoid) than you however as I do open it and scroll through. Mostly because I think they’ll know if I don’t. I do feel bad about doing this but sometimes I’m just too busy to read every post on my reader (I too am too lazy to unfollow people) or it might be that it’s a review for a book I’m not interested in or one I really am but trying to avoid spoilers. I want to support my fellow bloggers I just don’t want to read a review of that particular book at that particular time.

      I get you! I tend to try and read most of the important parts at least (especially after the whole mistake of mine that has me scarred in guilt forever) but there are so many factors that can play into me not fully reading a post! Some of them are exactly what you said as well, if I’m not interested in the particular book they’re reviewing, I’ll be less interested in the review? Ahh yes, I totally understand! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  14. I haven’t done a lot of these, though I have gone back to edit my comments for typos or even add to them. But I usually add on immediately after commenting. I’m not sure how that shows up in someone’s feed, though. Do they get the updated comment only? Do they get both?

    I do feel bad when I express interest in a book and people assume I’m going to read it immediately. I try to be say something like, “I’ll have to check that out” or something that implies that I will look into it, research it, maybe add it to my TBR. I don’t say, “I’ll have to read that!” But people still assume I’m going to rush to the library tomorrow for some reason. I meant it. I will probably look into it. I may even read it. I just might read it five years from now. ๐Ÿ˜€

    But people who don’t read the post do annoy me. (Is that okay to admit? I feel like someone is going to get mad at me.) I understand that people skim and you can make a mistake. I get confused with book titles all the time. Some titles and covers just look similar! But I do find it weird that I always get comments where the person has seemingly only read the title of the post. If people want to skim, they should read the first and last paragraphs because that’s where the bulk of the information should be in an effectively written piece. Then people wouldn’t always be accusing me of saying things I never said! I’m at the point where I sometimes quote the post in my reply, but I’m pretty sure these commenters don’t even read my reply. After all, they didn’t read the post!

    I think that the one that Iโ€™m most guilty of is not reading ALL of the post?? JUST reviews tho.

    I’m honestly pretty sure I haven’t done number 2, (no, really!) and I haven’t done 3, I SWEAR I’ve NEVER done 4, the only reason I’ve done 5 is to add something I forgot and usually I repost it the same day so I don’t think this really counts, and I’ve kind of unofficially done 6, sometimes I read posts without commenting but only because I don’t know what to say, but I’ve NEVER commented or liked it without even reading it, like who does that?!

And aahh I feel so bad when I don’t fully read a post and try to make up some weird comment! It makes me guilty but I think my comments aren’t that ignorant-sounding?? Hopefully. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  26. I’VE ONLY READ THE FIRST ONE AND I’M ALREADY LAUGHING WITH GUILT ANALEE NO WHY ARE YOU EXPOSING ALL OF US – to escape this first one I’ve started to say ‘I’ll check it out’ instead which I will do! That way I won’t lie but I won’t feel bad if I don’t end up reading it haha

    OH MY GOD ANALEE I CAN’T I WOULD DIE IF I COMMENTED ABOUT A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT BOOK THAN THE POST WAS ABOUT. Thankfully this has never happened to me though I too am guilty of not always reading the entire post. Sometimes I just get tired all of a sudden and I start to skim read and I feel bad but,, we’re only human

    I too was the type of blogger who had no clue what she was doing and seemed that way – we are in the same boat haha. I’ve deleted posts too, or made them private in case I want to have a laugh. Though one day soon I might just delete those too ๐Ÿ˜‚

    ANALEE I DIDN’T EVEN NOTICE YOU SKIPPED 7 YOU COULD’VE GOTTEN AWAY WITH IT

    Anyway love this post โค๏ธ
