6 Reasons Why I Hate Studyblrs

This post was originally supposed to be only 3 reasons, but when I started getting into it, I realized why I’ve stuck to the WordPress blogging sphere instead of jumping onto the Tumblr train.

Well, in this cause, everything out of Shakespeare’s mouth can be considered poetry and wisdom of the highest order, but what is there to say about him from other people’s point of view?
