One thing I'm curious about....what makes you search for a particular blog? And better yet...what makes you come back and read again? I personally enjoy blogs where they are easy to read and it sounds like the person is just sitting there talking to me. I also like people who are a little witty and just overall funny without trying too hard to be. Recently, I've been searching through mommy blogs. I have major baby fever (like pretty much astronomical) so I look for blogs of first time moms who share their pregnancy experience, life with a newborn, etc. What type of blogs do you like to read?
I was also reading on the SITS girls blog earlier about blogging and one particular post stood out to me. It was talking about having a great "About" page. Yeh I don't even have an "About" page but I get what they mean because I do read those when I go to a blog. It makes me feel like I connect with the person more. I'm more apt to leave comments on people's blogs if they have an "About" page where I feel like I have things in common with the person. Then I go back to their page again or put them into my bloglovin' list. So needless to say, I really need to work on my "About" page. Sounds like a good goal over the next couple of days. Do you have an "About" page? How did you decide what to include on it?
I also like blogs that are visually appealing. While I'm not practicing that at the moment, maybe I can do better at that. I just haven't had much to take pictures of lately. It's a lot easier for people with kids and things to take pictures of lol Maybe tomorrow I'll post the pictures that I took of my house the other day. Not very exciting but better than nothing. I should have some decor pictures up soon. My mom finished my curtains so I'm just waiting for her to paint the hardware and get them installed. Then I'm going to do my photo wall.....at some point when there is some extra money in the budget. Anyway.
Just something to think about :)
