12 Things You Should Never Say to a Blogger

What’s wrong with people? I mean, seriously. If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s verbal diarrhea.

I’ve written gobs of posts on what not to say to toddlers, pregnant women, moms of large families, moms of multiples, and adoptive parents so seemed only logical that I’d find my way to bloggers.

I wish I understood why (oh why!) curiosity seems to zap people of their common sense. Have you even noticed that? The more curious people are, the more entitled they feel to ask rude questions and make offensive statements.

I get that blogging is an interesting profession/passion but c’mon people! There’s a hard line between curiousity and rudeness.

I’ve rounded up 12 verbal offenses made toward bloggers but I’m sure you’ve got a few doozies yourself. Be sure to share them in the comments below!
