I’ve been meaning to participate in this all week but I’ve been so busy that I just couldn’t get the posts together, but it’s never to late to join the party!
Day 8: Quick! Write 15 bullet points of things that appeal to you on blogs!
- Personality – Not just in design, but in what you post. I want to feel like I know a bit about you by reading your blog.
- Easy to read – If it’s not easy to read I will keep right on clicking.
- Good fonts – The basics (Times New Roman, Arial, Tahoma, etc) for the body of your posts, fancy fonts are ok for headers/post titles/side bars/etc but make for terrible reading in the post itself.
- Discussion posts – I’m not very good at doing these myself, but I love reading them on other peoples blogs.
- Comment replys – It doesn’t have to be a direct reply to my comment on your blog, but visit my blog, shooting me an email or @ me on twitter. Just a little something to show that my comment on your blog means something to you.
- Easy commenting – It’s not that I’m lazy, just busy. I don’t want to work too hard to leave a comment. This means no CAPTCHA and no complex logging in things.
- Easy to find follow buttons – I want to follow you! I love when the buttons are right near the top and obvious so I don’t have to look to hard.
- Professionalism – Even if it’s just a hobby you should still be professional and treat others with respect.
- Clean blog layout – This is a less is more kind of thing. Too many things on the side bar and I end up ignoring it completely.
- Rating or easy to find explanation – I know that not everyone likes to use a rating system and that’s ok, but I need to have some way of getting the general idea of what you thought.
- True reviews – This goes along with professionalism, but I want the truth about how you felt, even if you don’t agree with me!
- Posts with your content – I don’t have a problem with promotional posts but I don’t want to see all promos all the time.
- Variety of book genres – I don’t have a problem with niche genre bloggers (e.g. romance, paranormal, etc) but I’m always attracted to bloggers that read a variety of books
- Full post in feed – I catch up on my blog reading on my phone and it annoys me to no end when I have to click and go to the blog to read more. Thankfully this is a rare occurrence!
