Welcome to my refreshed Monday Peeve! Unburden yourself of an annoyance and you’ll feel better afterward. Or not. Complain in my comments or crab in your own post. Doesn’t have to be on a Monday. You do you.
This barely rises to the level of a peeve ~ it’s really more of a very minor, very fleeting nuisance ~ yet because I encounter it all the time here in Blogland, I figured it deserved a spot on TMP rotation. Also, I can’t think of anything else right now!
When some bloggers respond to a prompt, they copy and paste so much of the prompt post into their new post that it takes a minute to actually find what the heck they wrote. Some C&P multiple paragraphs just to post “an American sentence” or a haiku. The explanation is ten times as long as their response. At least put it at the end of the post, not the beginning! But there’s no reason to do so much C&P in the first place when you can simply link to the original post with a brief explanation. If people want to read more or participate themselves, they can visit the host post to get the full set of details.
That’s what I do, so it is obviously the Best Way.
