Mission Statement

Good Blogging
Blogging is about saying what's on your mind, entertaining others, or just rambling. Communicating effectively is critical. Visitors to blogs come to read the entries and should be able to do so easily.


Advertising, poor graphics, and any other distractions on blog pages should never interfere with the blog entry.

This Blog

This blog is about identifying those blogs who's signal to noise ratio is low. This includes:
  • Pop-up ads
  • Inflatable ads
  • Floating ads
  • Noisy ads
  • Offensive ads (not in the theme of the blog)
  • Malfunctioning ads
  • Bad blog graphics and color schemes
  • Illegible text
  • 2nd-Grade English or worse
  • Dead Links / Photos / Videos within mere hours of posting

This Blog Is Not
This blog will not be about personal attacks or debating issues. If your blog sucks, I don't care. If your blog can be read easily, then you won't show up here. This blog is not about any of the following:
  • Seldom updated blogs
  • Boring blogs
  • Offensive blogs
  • Interfering with blogs or bloggers
  • Inhibiting free speech
  • Blogs engaged in illegal activities
  • Blogs stealing pictures or text
  • Typos
  • Making fun of non-native English
If you take personal offense to my pointing to your blog and saying "WRECK!", that's your psychosis, not mine. If your blog champions the most noble causes I'll still put it here if it's a wreck. After all, the most noble causes deserve to be displayed cleanly. If you screw it up, you're doing a disservice to your cause. Go cry to someone else.


  1. Bill,

    Hey this is John from Cake Wrecks. We don't allow pop-ups on Cake Wrecks and I will be having words with whomever is responsible. Do you know what the ad was for or what company it was from? Please e-mail us when you get a moment so I can get to the bottom of this.



  2. Email sent. I'll save a screen shot the next time this happens.
