Perfect Blogging: Don’t take the piss

Hello dear reader,

Upon the positive feedback on my post writing good comments on a blog, I thought I would extend my advice to another area that irritates me in the world of blogging and blog writing.

The irritant is when a site or an author takes the piss out of their loyal readers.

Firstly I will give a definition of my colloquialism:

Mock someone or something

The story so far…

Today is special as this is the 50th post I have created since starting the Manifesto of Perfection.

I have run blogs before but have never made it this far so I am partly congratulating myself for getting here, but also you the reader for your support – this always motivated me to improve my writing.

It’s not been easy trying to keep a schedule especially when bad stuff happens in my life – the desire to sit down and write something new is not necessarily a priority after a bad day.
