Way before I even considered making my own blog, I loved reading other blogs. I’d read blogs about food, fitness, health, life in general. You name it, I loved it! I’m sure my love of reading other blogs is a major reason why I decided to create my own! There are a few things that I look for in a blog and if I’m not able to see these things, I decided to “break up” with them. Why waste time on a blog we aren’t enjoying? Here are some of the things I look for in a blog and I’d love to hear yours!
4 Things I Look For in a Blog:
- Consistency: I love a blogger who is committed to a posting schedule. Whether they post every day, once a week, or three times a week, I love there to be a consistent pattern. If someone goes away for weeks at a time without notice, I will lose interest and give up!
- Replies to Comments: This one is big for me! I know that really popular bloggers may not have the time to answer every comment, but I’m turned off by this! I think that if someone takes the time to comment on your blog, it deserves a response! Anyone else?
- Authentic Content: It’s very easy to tell when someone does not take time to write their posts. Maybe the posts seem generic, shallow, or forced. I love a reader that is real, honest, open, and provides quality content.
- Variety: I like a blogger who talks about many different topics. I think even within one niche a blogger should have variety in their posts. If every post is the same, I will eventually lose interest and probably stop reading.
