Wanna know what drives me nuts besides not writing? Buzz words. You know those words people say to show that they think they know what they are talking about.
Need an example?
I recently was having a conversation with someone in passing. They recognized me from where I work full time, and they also knew that I wrote a blog. Interesting how the two sides of my life meet every once in a while.
Anyway, they were talking about blogging and social network. If I could get a nickle for every times they said content, media space, and unique hits I would have a shit load of nickles.
So why do they drive me nuts? Easy, because it's jargon. It drives be bat shit crazy to hear people talk to one another like that, unless they are in the same business and that's the way they speak, but I write a blog and I do know that I am a content provider, but it doesn't mean I know what the hell I am talking about.
People throw these words around to show they are better than you, or to show they are smart for knowing the 'secret' language of the business. Who gives a shit? If I am talking with someone and they are using the lingo way too much, I know they are full of shit!
Remember the corporate buzz words from a few years ago? Coach and develop?
This shit drives me crazy.
