Factual Friday: Blogging Edition I often get asked why I started a blog, or why I chose to read the blogs that I do. So here I am answering all those questions. I have read a lot of different types of blogs throughout my short blogging reading time, some recipe oriented, some athletic oriented, others completely random. It really just depends. If you are interesting and I can easily stalk you then…perfect.
Reasons Why I don’t Read a Blog/Or Stop Reading One.
1. You post novel every single time that doesn’t keep me interested
I don’t do well with posts that are longer than the textbook for class that I have to read. A blog is the excerpt of your life, not a second to second update. That timeline I did yesterday, was a bit boring for me to read even I thought.
2. You post five posts a day
I can’t keep up with your skills. I have to get my math homework done and venture out into the real world occasionally.
3. You aren’t personal.
I like to know what you look like. It makes it more interesting. Post pictures of yourself, have a photoshoot on your webcam. You don’t have to be excessive like I am, but it is more interesting that way.
Another important aspect is replying to comments. Reading a blog that is so distant from its readers does not make for an interesting blog.
I’m not saying that I need to know that you and your boyfriend are on the fritz screaming at each other every night, but I would love to know what you are up to versus would had for breakfast every morning.
4. Not enough photos
This goes along with 1, I have a tiny brain and don’t even enjoy reading for class.
5. Too many photos
Sometimes I don’t want to see a picture of your ingrown toe nail. Ew and enough said.
You’re Boring and Unoriginal
I’m sorry, I love you guys a lot but some blogs preach the exact same foods. I feel like I’m reading five of the same peoples food diaries. I like to eat exotic and weird things and I like it when you do too.
7. You don’t go out and have a good time or you don’t post it.
Once again, if you haven’t notice, I march to the beat of my own drum. If you post about how you stay in every single night and you are perfect and never in your life had a piece of cake. Well sorry, I eat cake and candy all day everyday and can’t really relate to you and your extremely health ways and I won’t find your blog interesting.
Question for you:
1. Why do you read the blogs that you do?
2. What is your golden tip for blogging?
