I’ve been reading blogs for way longer than I have been blogging for. Blogs have always been a great place for me to go to escape, gain inspiration and learn something new. With so many blogs out there, there’s always a chance to find blogs that you fall in love with.
I wanted to share with you today the type of blogs I love to read to hopefully bring some positivity back into the blogging community.
We share a similar interest
If a blogger and I share a similar interest, then I know it more than likely I am going to want to check out this particular blog because I know I’ll probably enjoy it. There’s no doubt that you enjoy the things you like and invest your time in wanting to know more about them. If I’m able to learn something new and take away useful things from this particular blog, then the whole experience for me is going to be fun and spark a good reaction inside.
They’re genuine and honest
Being quite an open and honest person myself, I’m all for people being the same back. If a blogger is genuine and honest, then I’m going to be more willing to want to read their blog. I appreciate people who don’t have a problem with sharing their experiences and thoughts, as we all know how scary it can be to put ourselves out there, but it definitely helps us to get to know the person behind the blog better. Also if someone comes across as a nice person and they have a great blog, then that’s an added bonus!
They want to engage
When a blogger shows that they want to engage with their audience and build their own community, it makes you as a reader feel so welcome and gives you that urge to want to get involved. When someone gets back to you, it makes you feel as though you’re appreciated and like they want you to stick around. I love talking to people online and having discussions about shared interests. It’s one of the best things!
I get to learn something new
I like to try keep my brain learning new things everyday, so it is great if I am able to learn something new from someone’s blog. Whether this is new information, tips and tricks, advice or even just useful help that could be applied to a range of situations, learning something new from a blog can be so helpful.
They give me a reason to keep coming back
I feel like these type of blogs that I have listed above give me a reason to keep coming back. Whether it is to learn something new, to interact with a like minded individual, because they’re authentic or because I enjoy reading the blog as a whole, if I have a reason to keep coming back, then I am going to make the most of it as much as I can and enjoy it.
