I love reading, lol who wouldn’t have guessed right? So that’s the number one thing that makes me read or view a blog, is my love for reading.
The content of the blog, the voice of the blog. Is it something beneficial to me? Do I love what the blogger puts out? I love blogs about books, write-ups (stories), food, do it yourself (DIY), inspiring articles, relationships, organization, personal, lifestyle etc. I can read anything as long as it keeps my interest, the writing style is wonderful, attention-grabbing, informative or entertaining. When the passion that goes into the creating of the posts is ever-present. No two blogs are the same because even if two bloggers are talking about the same thing, the voices and ways of expressing thoughts will always be different.
The person behind the blog. The more I interact with a blogger who is friendly, helpful and insightful the more prone I am to be a loyal reader of the blogger’s blog. Communicating is two way, show me love and I return it in tenfolds. I will show support to the moon and back because I am grateful and appreciative. p.s. I do try to communicate with fellow bloggers a lot, by trying to check out people’s post as often as I can and I do love commenting on blog posts, but it’s really hard to comment all the time, especially with something insightful or meaningful.
Boredom has me blog hopping a lot. It opens up the time for me to check out different content across different types of blogs. That I have to ask my self sometimes how did I get here? It could be an interesting comment on someone’s blog post, that has me checking out the person’s who wrote the comment blog. I love reading through comments. I googled about a topic and it had me opening various blogs. When someone mentions a blog that we all have to check out and support, I am all for checking it out, but I am very guilty of leaving if I see the person behind the blog didn’t put that much effort into beautifying, personalising and making their blog eye pleasant and friendly. I love organized blogs okay, sue me.
Aesthetics. I love a beautiful blog, which theme just goes, like isn’t it wonderful, my aesthetics isn’t one of the greatest out there, but I love my flowery theme, it’s soothing to me! Like there are so many different formats of posts on various blogs, that I had to step up my game to this flowery theme you’re currently seeing. Anyways, like I said above I love a beautiful blog, a blog that is organized and designed appropriately. I don’t know about other people but it’s one of the things that attract me to a blog, like if a blog is beautiful it makes me happy going through it, as well as green with envy lol.
Social media. As we have established I am a big blog hopping freak. If I randomly come across your social media page and it interests me, if your blog address is there, I’m definitely checking the blog out hard. If a person drops a link to a blog or post and it seems interesting I am clicking that link, if I haven’t seen the post or blog already. God bless Twitter threads, of blog links chain, that makes it so easy to discover new blogs and persons of interest. I am most likely to give you a follow on your social media pages also.
Thanks for stopping by and reading this post to the end! So now how about you? What attracts you to a blog? I would love to know if it’s similar to mine, or there’s more.
