15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 8

July 15, 2013 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge 6

15-Day-Challenge The 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by Good Books and Good Wine. You can read all about it here.

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!

  1. 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.
  2. Easy to read – If it’s not easy to read I will keep right on clicking.
  3. 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.
  4. Discussion posts – I’m not very good at doing these myself, but I love reading them on other peoples blogs.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Professionalism – Even if it’s just a hobby you should still be professional and treat others with respect.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. True reviews – This goes along with professionalism, but I want the truth about how you felt, even if you don’t agree with me!
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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!

    Amen! I agree with all your points. I really like variety in blog content – discussion possts, reviews, even the odd rant or 2 :-)
