I don’t do a lot of message boards. I find them sometimes stupid, tedious, and full of idiots. But the few I do visit, I check just about every day. And there are few things that get on my nerves more than someone pushing their product. It just makes me nuts!
Take my mommy board. I know some moms make good money for their families this way, by pushing traffic to their blogs, and their blog ads and whatever “Special Deals” they’ve signed up for. But damn it! When they start posting attention grabbing titles, just to get you to read their board post and hopefully visit their site, I’m more than a little pissed.
I go to these boards for the specific purpose of finding people to talk to about stuff going on in my life, be it parenting, marriage, or what I’m reading that day. And I don’t go there for fucking advertisements and bombardments by the top seller for Avon or the newest deal through Pepperidge Farms Goldfish! Gah!
So ladies, tone it the fuck down.
