1. The Navel GazerI think I need to see a blogger psychologist.
Navel gazers are introspective folks who love to share their innermost thoughts and feelings. Their blogs read more like a diary than helpful information that people want to share.
2. The Spoilsport
Spoilsports just don’t know how to have a good time. They’re negative, cynical, and always have a contrarian view on issues.
3. The Ranter
While it may feel good to get something off your chest, it does nothing to help your readers. Instead, it’s all about showcasing how smart you are or why everyone else is doing it wrong.

5. The Plagiarist
6. The Sleazeball
Although they might not be as obvious, these people are the ones who will sell you get-rich-quick “systems” to help you get 100,000 hits on your website in one week or how to make $50,000 this month.
