I have a serious pet peeve when it comes to the world of foodie blogs. I honestly do not care about your elaborate back story surrounding your lovely little recipe. Guess what, I happened upon your blog because your recipe looked yummy, and that is all. Sure, I guess that there are some blogs that have devoted followers who give a shit about the blogger’s life, but I am not one of your followers. I probably found your recipe on Pinterest and now find myself forced to read about your children, dog, cat, husband, guinea pig, garden, and all around perfect fucking life. I do not have time for this shit. I don’t mind a little bit of a back story (such as Grandma Inny used to make this all the time and it reminds me of her, blah blah) but please spare me the graphic details of your boring ass life. If you can tell a story about ingredients, then I’m all about it, but seriously people, start a blog about what you really want to talk about, instead of luring me in with delicious looking food. Same goes for Yelp reviewers who want to turn their review into their next creative writing project. Find another outlet people!
This religious cupcake maker was the straw that broke my back. All I wanted to know was how to make some scrumptious pumpkin spice latte cupcakes because I am obsessed with PSL like every other white girl in October. But hell no, this blogger had to first tell me all about Jesus’ light shining inside of her or whatever the hell before she got to the friggin point and gave me the damn recipe. Can we please, please, please leave Jesus out of our cupcake discussion? For the love of God, PLEASE!
